Hancock County Ag Safety Day

Our story of Cultivating Communities across our trade territory continues, as we attended the Hancock County Ag Safety Day on April 14, which was hosted by Hancock County 4-H.

The children rotated through several stations hosted by various community groups, such at Nine Star Connect, Canine Castaways Rescue, Greenfield Fire Territory and more. Harvest Land employee Vickie Ramsey was instrumental in organizing the day.
The Harvest Land station educated sixty 4-H members about grain safety. Specific topics included grain entrapment as well as auger and PTO hazards.

Today’s Photo Friday includes a few shots from our work with the youth of Hancock County.

Planning for Success: Lindner United

With state fairs over and county fairs winding down, the show circuit for pigs comes to a slow, also. While the trailer might sit idle for a bit, the wheels in the showman’s mind need to be turning on the next crop of livestock projects. Now is the time to consider a sound nutrition program for your next set of show stock.

Harvest Land has two locations that sell Lindner United feed: our Greenfield Store (230 W. Osage St. Greenfield, IN) and our Eldorado Ag Center (150 E. Ohio St. Eldorado, OH).

Most circuit breeders in Indiana and Ohio want sows to farrow between January 1st and late February/early March, depending on their individual marketing plan for their hogs. Considering the gestation period for a sow (3 months, 3 weeks, 3 days), September is the prime breeding season for most breeders in our area.

Lindner has a starter program that is easy to follow and adds more weight to the growing pig. The graphic below easily explains the steps for success:

Lindner also offers a sow gestation feed product called Priority 1, which should be fed to the sow after she has farrowed. Priority 1 will stimulate the appetite and water intake to get the sow back up on her feet.

Barns emptying out might mean travel slows a bit before Louisville and Kansas City runs, but there is no better time than now to build a nutrition program for success. Any good stockman knows that nutrition matters at all stages of growth, not just weeks before the show ring.
