An Agri Country Thanksgiving

In a recent story on our website, we explained the interesting process underway in our studio to convert old episodes of Agri Country, starring Ed Johnson, to digital. The weekly show often focused on holidays as the years progressed and the role agriculture and life in the country has in celebrating them.

It is in that spirit we reach back exactly 34 years ago this week to this episode of Agri Country that appeared before Thanksgiving in 1983.

From all of us at Ohio Ag Net and Ohio’s Country Journal, Happy Thanksgiving.… Continue reading

Chrysta Beck of Archbold named 2017 American Star in Agriscience

Since third grade, Chrysta Beck of Archbold has raised broilers and layers to sell meat and egg products to local customers. As she got older and joined FFA, she developed a supervised agricultural experience (SAE) that would look into the health of poultry. But what started as research to assist her with personal production goals soon developed into a project with a vastly larger scope. It focused on U.S. and global poultry production and welfare.

Beck’s work began when she was in ninth grade and started looking closely into broiler production factors and exactly how the birds grew. She also learned how to determine meat quality. By her senior year, Beck was investigating alternative methods for replacing antibiotics.

“I was looking into the gut health of the chick,” Beck said. “I was looking into the microbiology of chickens and doing probiotic research.”

In her lab trials, Beck has been testing different types of bacteria to determine their viability.… Continue reading

The one Perry Buxton was driving looked like many green and yellow combines you see this time of year. The other machine was of the same brand but, after 50 sun-faded harvests under its belt, had a slightly different shade of the iconic colors. Take a look at this Cab Cam, driven by Fennig Equipment.… Continue reading
