This Chore Time will be topped off with an image, and a link back to my good friend Ben Crane. His work is a bright light for many of us in farming and ranching country - and anyone who is a fan of Lean'n Tree knows his special 'picks'! Enjoy...
There are lots of things going on in the news, including many about farming and farm animals.
Check out the links below...you'll be sure to find something worth reading! From Flu to the Malta perspective on farming to a new 'compartive' virtual farm experience. You should also click on Biomimicry (http://www.biomimicryinstitute.org/)- pretty awesome stuff there! I'm very intrigued and am going to be adding that to my 'wanna know more' list!
We are going to be featuring some commentary from friends in Agriculture coming soon...keep an eye out for those special Chore Time editions.
Remember feedback is important so comment, share and talk about what's going on!
