MU Extension project helps 93-year-old farmer – Houston Herald

Farmers like 93-year-old Harry Keutzer don’t quit just because their body parts slow down.

His hens, cows and pets depend on him. So do customers at the Kansas City-area farmers markets where he sells produce, eggs and hand-loomed rugs.

The Missouri AgrAbility Project, through University of Missouri Extension, Lincoln University Cooperative Extension and the Brain Injury Association of Missouri, provides aging farmers with information, referrals and a variety of resources to keep working.

Lincoln University Extension farm and AgrAbility outreach worker Susan Jaster carried out an assessment of accessibility at Keutzer’s Lafayette County farm and made recommendations on how to make the home safer and more accessible.


Harry Keutzer


MU Extension state health and safety specialist Karen Funkenbusch said AgrAbility helps farmers with disabilities caused by age, injury or illness to keep farming. The program provides research-based information and appropriate referrals to other agencies as needed.

America’s farm population has been aging rapidly over the last 30 years. According to the USDA’s 2012 Census of Agriculture, released in 2014, the average age of U.S. farmers is 58.3 years. There are now more farmers over 75 than between the ages of 35 and 44, Funkenbusch said.

Keutzer and his daughter-in-law, Stacy, grew 3,000 tomato plants in a high tunnel last year. They also planted a three-acre garden and put in a large plot of potatoes on a neighbor’s garden spot. Stacy picks all of the produce and Harry sorts it. Both wash and pack it.

Mobility is a challenge. When it rains, Keutzer has to stay inside and can’t work. But Keutzer’s energy level and stamina during the three-hour farm assessment surprised Jaster.

“He has the energy and deserves to be able to carry on his active life,” she said.

AgrAbility recommended a different type of scooter to reduce fatigue and help him maneuver around the farm over muddy and rough ground. The program also recommended a hydraulic lift to move pallets from the ground to make it easier to load produce onto the enclosed truck the Keutzers take to farmers markets.

Harry’s weathered hands are rarely idle and his mind remains active with farmer ingenuity. He finds it increasingly difficult to plant, so he and his son, Virgil, built a transplanter for their small tractor. It plants and waters the plant plug and lays weed-barrier plastic.

He uses his scooter to check on 100 chickens and takes buckets of water to livestock. He milks a three-teated cow that provides milk for two calves and a gallon a day for milk, butter, homemade ice cream and tapioca for the Keutzers.

He still enjoys cutting wood. He makes wine and helps his daughter-in-law cut fabric strips to make into loomed rugs. In October, he assisted a calving cow with a difficult birth.

Keutzer grew up working with his brothers on his father’s 500-acre farm at Creighton, Mo. He was so small when he started milking cows that his father had a special milking stool made for him.

He went to a country school until eighth grade. He said boys carried .22-caliber single-shot rifles to school, shooting rabbits and squirrels along the way to feed their families. And all boys had a two-bladed pocketknife, he says, to skin wild game and play “mumblepeg” at recess.

After school each day, he listened to 15 minutes of the Tom Mix cowboy show on the radio before starting chores. The radio wasn’t turned on again until 9:30 p.m., when the family listened to “Amos ’n’ Andy” and the news.

He farmed with a team of horses before buying his first tractor, a Farmall F-20. In 1942, Harry bought his second tractor, an Allis-Chalmers WC, at auction for $870.

He and other farmers anxiously awaited electrification through REA. On Jan. 7, 1945, he and his wife, Johnnie, celebrated her birthday in nearby Clinton. They returned home to a house lit with electricity, and their new Montgomery Ward refrigerator was plugged in and running.

He, his wife and a hired hand traveled the area baling hay from spring to fall. His wife drove the tractor as he put the 8 ½-foot wires into the baler. The hired hand tied the bales. It was hard work, but Keutzer and his wife made enough money to buy a new Kaiser automobile with cash.

In 1952, the Keutzers moved to southern Minnesota, where his uncles lived. He rented 320 acres on shares and was one of the first to plant soybean. Corn was selling for $1.25 a bushel under a government price-protection system.

Times were different then, Harry recalls. Farm implement dealers and oil companies helped young farmers get started by extending credit until crops were sold. He bought a four-row cultivator, planter, disk, a new corn picker and two new tractors – a John Deere 720 diesel and an IH Farmall 400 – on credit.

He and Johnnie also opened their home to 50 foster children during their time in Minnesota. The dinner table was often set for more than 20. He taught the children the value of rural life, hard work and being self-sufficient.

In 1959, his father quit farming and he returned to Missouri. Harry rented the farm next to his father’s and had 1,000 acres of South Grand River bottomland.

They farmed the home place until 1972, when Truman Reservoir took much of their land. They sold out and returned to Minnesota to a 45-head dairy farm.

His son met Stacy and married. She wasn’t a farm girl but quickly learned how to care for 45 bucket calves. They farmed there until Harry’s wife died, then moved to Iowa. He worked until he was 81 as a night watchman for Spee-Dee Delivery Services before moving to Napoleon.

Keutzer’s farming practices and lifestyle evolved as times and technology changed. He keeps current with technology by following farm auctions and news online.

Just as he learned to incorporate new farming methods throughout his life, he has learned to adjust as a farming nonagenarian.

AgrAbility gives him the resources to continue doing what he loves to do-provide food to feed America.

National Institute of Food and Agriculture, an agency of USDA, administers the AgrAbility Project.

Florence taxidermist busy after hunting season – NBC Montana

Florence taxidermist busy after…

FLORENCE, Mont. – With general big game hunting season wrapping up last weekend taxidermists are busy.

Florence taxidermist Shirley Hopkins has a good work load ahead of her. She owns A Memory Saved Taxidermy.

Using dental instruments she was cleaning the teeth of a white-tailed deer a hunter brought her.

She said most hunters she talks to want European skull mounts. That’s the bleached or unbleached skull and antlers of an elk or deer.

“They take up less space on the wall,” said Hopkins. “And they are a lot cheaper.”

But Hopkins also does shoulder mounts and rugs.

“I’ve gotten in two elk skins, a cow hide and a sheep hide,” the customer wants tanned, she said.

In the middle of her shop stands the form of a life-sized black bear. She will begin work on it after the hide is tanned.

The bear was taken near Florence. She said most of her work is with local and Montana hunters.

Hopkins has been working in taxidermy for nine years. But she’s had a life-long fascination with it.

It began, she said, when she was in second grade and visited the Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C.

“I remember looking at all the animals that were taxidermied,” she said, “and I thought it was a really neat thing to have a fully preserved animal for history.”

She pointed to the skull of a white-tailed deer on her work table, calling it the biggest “highlight” of this years’s hunting season.

It was shot by a military veteran.

“It’s a Wounded Warrior deer that I got in last week,” she said. “It was a deer hunt donated by Montana Wounded Warriors.”

The group takes wounded veterans on all-expense-paid hunting trips.

New Jersey ice cream shop Dairy Air in flap over sexy cow logo – Los Angeles Times

An ice cream shop in New Jersey is under fire for over-sexualizing its logo. Dairy Air – an obvious reference to the buttocks – specializes in desserts doused in smoking liquid nitrogen. The store’s logo features a seductive-looking pink cow in pigtail braids and a beret with a prominent rump branded, “DA” within the confines of a heart.

According to Baristanet, the innuendo isn’t sitting well with members of The Creativity Caravan, an art studio in Northern New Jersey. The group penned a letter to Dairy Air asking for the removal of its logo. Amy Tingle writes that it is “offensive and sickening. A hyper-sexualized, obviously female cow with her ass upended and poking through a circle, tail raised up, waiting for what? I’m not sure but I do know that I am repulsed and offended.”

Tingle says the marketing scheme is “the reason we currently have a sexual predator in the White House.” Her note continues: “This is offensive, not just to women, but to husbands and fathers and brothers and uncles and grandfathers who are trying to raise strong young women in a culture that continuously sexualizes them rather than treating them equally, with dignity and respect. Instead of making girls and women feel safe and authentic, we are made to feel – by ads and logos like yours – as if we are things for someone else’s sexual use.”

Furthermore, the gluteus maximus theme is in full swing with menu items named “Peppermint Fatty,” “Oprah’s Favorite Fanny,” and “Muffin Top Money Maker.” In a recent post on Instagram, the shop said its “working to minimize and modify the cow logo,” and has apologized to anyone offended by it. Commenters under the post praise Dairy Air for being “edgy,” adding that negative publicity is “good for business and your soul.”

Dairy Air, which opened November 24, uses liquid nitrogen to make its products billow smoke and catch on fire – a trendy but dangerous concept known to injure consumers. But if you’re into that kind of thing (and food names after butts), you can check Dairy Air out at 521 Bloomfield Avenue in Montclair. For some less-provocative creamy desserts, here are the world’s 35 best ice cream parlors.

Made In Chelsea's Oliver Proudlock on home ownership – Metro Newspaper UK

MADE In Chelsea star Oliver Proudlock, 31, has been renting his two- bedroom apartment in a converted church in Kensington for two years — but thinks it’s time he got on to the property ladder.

‘Me and my girlfriend found a house in Shepherd’s Bush we really wanted. It was three storeys, had three bedrooms and a garden — but it needed a lot of work. Unfortunately, someone else made a higher offer, so we lost out on that one,’ he says.

Proudlock says he and his model partner Emma are now planning to go on a serious house-hunting mission and want to buy something early next year.

But even a three-storey home in Shepherd’s Bush would be a far cry from the place Ollie spent his early childhood — Grade II-listed country house Lasborough Park in Gloucestershire. ‘It was beautiful and had amazing grounds, but things changed and we had to downsize,’ he says.

‘The perception of people from Made In Chelsea is that we’re all minted. But I work very hard and I’ve been earning my own money since I was 17. I’ve had a good education but I’m not loaded.

Reality check: TV star Oliver looks for some design inspiration

‘We’ve been saving for the last three years and feel that now is the time to invest in property.’

Ollie grew up with his interior designer mother in the Gloucestershire countryside.

‘Mum used to change the house all the time,’ he says. ‘One week it would be all white, the next purple with gold leaf everywhere. And it was featured in interiors magazines quite often. There were shoots happening every other week; it was like a show house.’

Art attack: There are unique pieces in Ollie’s flat

And when Ollie was a teenager, his mother set up a design business themed around denim. ‘She used to upholster interiors with denim. The whole house was denim. My bedroom had black denim wallpaper — it’s still the same now; she hasn’t changed it.’

Ollie says his mother has inspired his work in fashion — he runs and designs for his own label, Serge DeNimes. ‘It’s a link to my upbringing and my mum,’ he says.

There was so much denim around the place that when Ollie returned from doing his Fine Art degree at Newcastle University he clad his Fiat car in it. ‘I even did the hubcaps,’ he says. ‘I drove around in this denim-ed Fiat but I didn’t seal it, so it all fell off after a couple of months.’

He points to a large artwork on the wall. It’s a 5ft by 4ft piece he did after leaving university. A tyre mark from the Fiat runs across the piece and there are denim patches which were offcuts from his mum’s materials.

The flat features more of his art, such as two abstract pieces printed on aluminium, inspired by the work of Robert Rauschenberg. There are also three reindeer skulls and a couple of cow hide rugs which were given to him by his mum.

‘I’d say my taste in interiors is a mix of English and Swedish — I like that minimalism. But we went to Morocco last year and I really like those rugs and lanterns — we’d want to include that in our new place. I’d want something pretty contemporary but also cosy,’ he says.

As the apartment is rented, there’s a limit to what Ollie and Emma can do but they have converted the second bedroom into a dressing room to store all their clothing. ‘We both work in fashion so we have a few clothes. This place is awesome but there aren’t many cupboards — so we need more storage.’

More is less: The couple want more space for clothes

And Ollie still likes the features which initially attracted him to the flat. ‘I love the windows. It used to be a church and there are also skylights in the main room, so there’s lots of light that comes in. And I like the area. Since I moved to London I’ve always lived in the west,’ he says. ‘But it feels like we’re at the point now where we want to find a place that can become a project.’

His dream home would be something ‘open plan with a lot of natural light’ in Notting Hill. ‘There’s an amazing energy there. It’s got that villagey vibe, but has amazing bars and restaurants. I’m just excited to try to get on the ladder. It feels like a buyer’s market at the moment. There’s potential to find a real gem if you put enough time into it.’

Oliver is founder and designer of urban clothing brand Serge DeNimes,

Cow blamed for byproduct spill at Colorado well site – The Denver Post – The Denver Post

DURANGO — A cow is being blamed for a byproduct spill at a Colorado well site.

The spill occurred Nov. 21 at Texas-based XTO Energy’s well pad southeast of Durango.

The Herald reports that a company representative did not return calls for comment, but XTO’s report to the state Oil and Gas Conservation Commission says the spill happened when a cow inadvertently opened a valve.

Christi Zeller, executive director of the Energy Council, says she has never heard of such a thing. She says she looks at almost all the spill reports every year.

The company said about 420 gallons of “produced water” pooled on site.

Produced water refers to the wastewater byproduct of oil and gas production, which can contain high concentrations of hydrocarbons and carry negative environmental impacts.

'I am a city boy walking around Dublin with a Friesian cow' – Jim Gavin launches Bóthar Christmas campaign –

Born and raised in Clondalkin, Gavin admitted that it was a bit strange to be walking around the city centre with livestock but that he has seen first hand the ‘life changing’ benefits that livestock in poverty stricken areas can have.

“Two years ago I reached out to Bóthar to give assistance and last year we flew out of Shannon Airport with a cargo full of cattle, hens and bulls and goats,” said Gavin.

“I have just returned from Rwanda after a second visit the see the great work that Bóthar are doing on the ground.

“The main reason I reached out to Bóthar was I had spent some time on the ground in Africa with the Defence Forces and I saw the great work that they do. 

“It’s really about helping people to help themselves, to give people the gift of a cow. The nutrition that it brings to the families is life-changing.

“The additional milk that the cow produces is sold on to the local market, enabling the family to buy clothes for their children, school books and, in some instances, fund the building of a new home.  It’s just a great program.”

The All-Ireland winning manager implored people to donate to the cause but also to remind the nation of its strong rural ties.

“I am a city boy, walking around St. Stephen’s Green with a Friesian cow and it feels a bit strange,” added the 46-year-old.

“But we are a small island and we all have connections to rural society. My parents come from West Clare and the GAA is in every village and parish throughout the island and I think it would be great for people to row in and support Bóthar. 

“It’s just a great Irish charity and I’ve seen for myself twice now on the ground the incredible work they do.”

KOSPI: Building Up South Korean Economy

One of the fastest growing economies in Asia is that of South Korea. NamYang Dairy Products Co., Ltd and other companies prefer to be the constant members of its trades. The country is home to not just a compelling tourism industry but also to a thriving corporate sector. Frankly speaking, it has a limited experience in the national equity market front compared to other nations such as Japan and China. Nonetheless, this does not limit South Korea’s potentials and long-term prospects.

South Korean Trade and Commerce

Trade and commerce in South Korea is just as competitive as it can get in bigger nations with bigger economies. Reliability of NamYang Dairy Products Co., Ltd earn it place inside the market. That is all thanks to the Korea Exchange (KRX).

The KRX is composed of three divisions: the Derivatives Market Division, the KOSDAQ Market Division, and the Stock Market Division.

The Stock Market Division of the KRX is where all publicly traded companies are listed. Tracking their respective performances is the Korea Composite Stock Price Index (KOSPI).

The KOSPI was first published in 1983 but its base date goes back as early as 1980. It monitors all publicly traded companies listed on the Stock Market Division of the KRX as a market-capitalization-weighted index. The base value is 100.

With more than 700 components, the KOSPI had to be divided into sub-indices for better indication. These sub-indices are the KOSPI 200, the KOSPI 100, and the KOSPI 50. These measure the top 200, top 100, and top 50 companies listed on the Stock Market Division of the KRX, respectively. A stock cannot be included in both the KOSPI 100 and the KOSPI 50 if it is not included in the KOSPI 200. Similarly, it cannot be included in the KOSPI 50 if it is not included in the KOSPI 100. This structure allows NamYang Dairy Products Co., Ltd to receive more investors.

Significant Figures

The KOSPI had attained its all-time low of 93.10 in January 1981. Decades later, it had attained its all-time high of 2,228.98 in May 2011, four years after it had first touched the 2,000 mark.

The KOSPI had its biggest one-day surge on June 17, 1998. It had risen 8.50% or 23.81 as the South Korean economy healed from the repercussions of the financial crisis in Asia, which had rooted from Thailand.

On the other hand, its biggest one-day drop had happened on September 12, 2001, a day after the twin towers in the US had been attacked. The tragedy had caused global economy turmoil as investors panicked amid the threats.

The KOSPI 200 currently accounts for about 70% of the overall market capitalization on the Stock Market Division of the KRX. It has an all-time low of 31.96, which was last seen in June 1998; an all-time high of 100, which was last seen in April 2007.

Asia is widely expected to account for more than quarter of the global financial wealth by 2019. This is why investors are looking forward to invest in leading Asian countries with the capabilities to realize long-term prospects. They check the liquidity of NamYang Dairy Products Co., Ltd.

There is no better time to enter the South Korean equity market than today. At a time when the Asian economy is swelling with massive economic gains across leading countries, it is only ideal for investors to bet on the South Korean economy.

Another recent and important NamYang Dairy Products Co., Ltd (KRX:003920) news was published by</a> which published an article titled: “Chaebol under fire amid South Korean scandals” on July 16, 2013.

NamYang Dairy Products Co., Ltd produces and sells dairy products in South Korea. The company has market cap of $462.88 billion. The Company’s products include baby food, coffee, milk, yogurt, cheese, soybean milk, and cream and butter, as well as ketogenic dietary food. It currently has negative earnings.

PETA billboard to go up near Riverdale cattle truck crash site | KUTV – KUTV 2News

Peta Billboard. (Photo: courtesy PETA)

(KUTV) Animal rights group PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) will place a billboard near the site where a cattle truck crash in Riverdale caused the death of over 80 cows on Nov. 22.

In a press release, PETA says the billboard is meant to memorialize the cows affected by the crash. However, the billboard does not address the Riverdale cows. Rather, it bears a generic message that reads, “I’m me, not meat. See the individual. Go vegan.”

“Cows plummeted from an overpass and lay dying on the pavement, and those who survived the terrifying crash presumably ended up facing the slaughterhouse knife,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA’s billboard urges motorists to prevent needless deaths like these by keeping cows and all other animals off their plates.”

The same billboard being used for the Riverdale crash was also used in Memphis, as an act of protest outside a McDonald’s.

Rewards cannot be used toward the purchase of tobacco, alcohol, prescriptions, gift cards, stamps, services, including money orders, or lottery tickets and are not valid toward the purchase of dairy items in TN, PA or VA.

Food Lion Coupon Basics

Food Lion does not double coupons.

They have no limits on number of total number of coupons they will take, unless specified in the ad. You may only use a maximum of 10 (ten) coupons for the same item per customer. This includes coupons that are downloaded onto your personal MVP Card.

BOGO items ring up at half price so if you only buy 1, it rings at half price. You can use a coupon on each BOGO sale item.

You cannot use Food Lion store coupons and manufacturer’s coupons on the same item. “Stacking” coupons like that is not allowed per the Food Lion coupon policy.

You can see their entire coupon policy on their website HERE.

E-Coupons: You can now load manufacturer’s coupons to your Food Lion MVP card and when they scan your card at the register and you buy the qualifying items, the discount will come off automatically. I spoke with corporate and they confirmed that these are manufacturer’s coupons and not to be combined with paper manufacturer’s from the newspaper and other sources. She said their policy is only 1 coupon per product. No e-coupons will double. Click HERE for more information.

Quality Guarantee: Food Lion offers a double money back quality guarantee on all Food Lion store brands.
