Optimum corn planting dates are later ‘Up North’

This year farmers have been challenged by cool, wet conditions during April. Even though planting dates seem like they have been delayed, we still have not passed the optimum planting dates for corn. Wisconsin farmers can plant a large number of acres quickly. Since 1979, there have been five years when 40 percent or more of the acres were planted in one week. Between May 2-9, 1999, and April 30-May 7, 2000, farmers planted 1.5 million acres in one week (42 percent and 44 percent of the acres planted in those years).

Today, many people have purchased a few acres, put a fence around it and then bought a horse, or two or three, or more.

As many residents of Waushara County know, a donation of $250,000 was offered to the county board in 2013 for the purposes of creating a new senior dining center and meeting space that would be attached to the Department of Aging kitchen located on Division Street. The kitchen is used to prepare meals for both senior-dining centers located throughout the county and to those needing a meal delivered to their home.

Spring is a time for warm weather, birds singing, and the site of children riding their bikes. Bike safety is so important for our children, and they need to be taught the importance of using hand signals, wearing a bike helmet every time they ride, and recognizing the dangers that are all around them.
