2021 has been a trying year for North Dakota farmers. Many areas across North Dakota have gone from too little rain during the growing season, to too much rain during the harvest season. Jeff Gale is the NDSU Extension Ag and Natural Resources Agent for Foster County and explains more about the harvest progress across the county. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Does the average citizen actually need to care about how their food is produced? This is the central question Australian author and journalist, Gabrielle Chan, set out to answer. Her latest book, “Why you should give a f*ck about farming” details her firm conclusion that, yes, if you eat food, you should in fact care about agriculture. While the old days of agriculture as the top contributor to GDP are over for most Western countries, Gabrielle argues the future of food and farming is becoming increasingly important for a raft of other reasons such as climate change and food security.In this episode, she talks about:Her own introduction to farming, including what shocked her when she first moved from the city to marry a farmer.The emergence of ‘food tribes', where people view what they eat as part of their identity.How politics is failing agriculture by not having a “backyard plan,” a strategy to value natural capital and make considered decisions about land use.The role of agtech in bringing outsiders into agriculture, reinvigorating rural communities, and re-establishing connections between consumers and farmers.For more information and resources, visit our website

When Things Go Wrong Tom Donnan pt 2If you've been watching the news lately, the major story has been about mandates issued by the government that people be forced to get their vaccinations. There have been threats issued by businesses and even the military, that if you do not get vaccinated, you lose your job or your career. Who is it that is forcing this issue? It is none other than the government of the United States. You know, the one's who are supposed to protecting the right of “free choice” and “personal freedom…” The one's who are concerned about individual rights, etc. Unless, of course, it does not fit their political agenda. Despite the science that says there is only a 0.0001 % chance of dying from COVID – even without a vaccination. I wonder if big pharma, you know, the companies that have developed the vaccinations themselves, are behind the political push to make sure every person in the world is going to get a vaccination. I wonder how much money they will make from various governments per shot. Interesting to think about, isn't it? Well, to talk about all of this and more, is our good friend, Tom Donnan! This is part two of an amazing two part interview! Have you heard anything about something called “shielding camps?” Kind of like a new style of concentration camp under the guise of “protecting us” from the unvaccinated. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=VfrffosEtDc (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=VfrffosEtDc) And these “shielding camps” are beginning to appear in the USA, correct? https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=VfrffosEtDc (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=VfrffosEtDc) This goes to the case that we've made that the left, basically the Democrats and Joe Biden, are pushing their one world government agenda on this nation. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ncin8ewj88U (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ncin8ewj88U) We can see that the left does not really care about the people of the United States. All they care about is maintaining power. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=sJb15Jce7uM (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=sJb15Jce7uM) They are forcing people to get vaccinated or face losing their career, their income and their businesses. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=qI9kOw4K6is&pp=QAFIAQ%3D%3D (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=qI9kOw4K6is&pp=QAFIAQ%3D%3D) Tom, with all of this stuff going on, I do not want to end this program without a Word of Hope. Is there hope for America in all of this? Farmers in Oregon coming together in a large number to pray and to thank God for His provision. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=QlpRDI5beFE (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=QlpRDI5beFE) Tom, there is only one hope – and His name is Jesus. Would you do the privilege of leading someone, somewhere, to the foot of the cross if, what we have talked about today, has sparked someone to seek hope? True Hope. Folks, we have only scratched the surface of things going on all around us. Tom and I could talk for hours on any one of these topics that we just covered. The point behind this discussion is not “how bad it's gotten.” No. Our point is that these things have been called out to us in the Bible. Every single thing can be referenced in some form or fashion as foretelling, what many call, “the end times.” Amen! If you prayed that prayer with Tom, use the contact information to reach out and let him know! Amen!

The UK food industry relies on foreign workers, but what happens when they stop coming? A combination of COVID-19 and Brexit has led to fewer workers available to pick, process and transport food. For some farmers it has led to heartbreaking dilemmas. Tamasin Ford speaks to two pig farmers who face having to kill thousands of healthy pigs, and a salad farmer who has seen millions of lettuce heads rot in his fields.

RemoteRacing™ accounts for both environment and terrain, including heat, humidity, wind, elevation, and elevation gain. What is equalized? Results are equalized for both age and gender, so you can get a true sense of how you stack up. Note: RaceX is a sister company to TriDot.

What's New in the 303: Deb Connelly, Running Hall of Fame, Denver Athletic Club Deb Conley started running for the first time the summer before attending the University of Colorado at Boulder. She ran just to run with a new boyfriend. Like three miles. A couple of months later she walked on to CU's cross country team and has been running ever since. And just recently, she was inducted into the Colorado Running Hall of Fame. Wow. She never played sports growing up, never ran, never did anything but work and go to school. In this video interview, Deb expresses a surprised happiness after being selected for the Colorado Running Hall of Fame. But she also shares something vulnerable; how running in college was the first time she ever experienced feeling truly happy. Whats not really discussed, is the rocky and almost impossible path she took to get here. If you knew Deb in high school you probably would never have foreseen her making the Colorado Running H.O.A. But like 99% of her classmates, I had no idea how hard her life was until we reconvened about this honor almost 40 years later. My high school experience differed greatly from Deb's even though we both went to Wheat Ridge and graduated in 1983. I played sports, didn't work, had a car, stayed busy with practices and homework and hanging out with friends. Admittedly, I led the “Leave it Beaver” lifestyle (yes I'm dating myself), like a good chunk of my fellow “Farmers” (our mascot). Deb, living just a few miles away lived in poverty. Her mom forged her birth certificate when she was 13 so she could work. Her bed was an old army cot. They had no refrigerator and the house was in disrepair. Her parents didn't want her to go to college but rather help with the other kids. There was no modeling of “success” or “ambition” in her home. Yet she excelled at school and knew she had to figure out a way to go to college. She admittedly didn't understand true happiness and felt lonely. Her friend and fellow classmate, Chris Tomlinson, one of the few who knew of Deb's tough childhood said, “she was very smart, but seemed anxious and isolated. It seemed touch and go for her.” Wendy Koenig A middle distance runner, Wendy Koenig competed seven times for the United States in international dual meets. She was a three-time AIAW Champion, in 1975 in the 880 yards, and in 1976 at both 800 and 1,500 metres. Koenig also won three AAU titles, outdoors in the 1973 880 and in 1976 in the 1,500, and indoors in the 1979 800. On 24 March 1973, she set one of the very early world records for the 400 hurdles with 59.08, the first woman to run the event under one minute. Koenig ran for Colorado State University, and competed at the 1972 Olympics as Wendy Koenig and the 1976 Olympics as Wendy Knudson. Personal Bests: 440y – 54.60 (1975); 800 – 1:59.91 (1976); 1500 – 4:21.80 (1976); Mile – 4:47.7i (1976); 3000 – 9:49.0 (1976); 2 Miles – 10:34.0 (1976); 100H – 14.8 (1971); 400H – 59.08 (1973); HJ – 5-5 [1.65] (1974); LJ – 19-10¾i [6.06] (1979); Pen - 4167 (1971). Utah's Unique Mountain Bike Hut System Unites a Group of Colorado Cyclists Posted on October 12, 2021 By Bill Plock In south central Utah surrounded by National Parks, ancient river beds and views of what was once the floor of a great sea bed, lies a system of huts sheltering mountain bikers as they wind through the Escalante Plateau. The area, more than twice the size of Rhode Island is bordered by Zion, Bryce, Capitol Reef National Parks and Lake Powell. It offers a huge variety of terrain tempting all levels of cyclists to explore the high deserts, deep canyons, daunting plateaus and sandy washout basins. Coming from Colorado, a beautiful drive takes you from Green River, Utah southwest to the town of Escalante where the 190 mile Aquarius Trail Hut System ends. When you arrive, someone from Aquarius takes you and your bike West to Brian Head where the adventure begins. The “huts” are shipping containers repurposed and carved up to make sleeping accommodations and a kitchen for 12 cyclists. As Jared Fisher, owner of Escape Adventures, who dreamed up this hut system says, “It's like putting together a lego house. It takes four containers to make a “hut” and we cut them, install windows and doors and add the bunks and appliances.” The huts are “off the grid” operating by solar and propane complete with compostable toilets and showers. When all the expenses are accounted for, a hut will cost about $200,000 to build and install. They are serviced by staff each day bringing in fresh food, linens, and fuel. Scattered on the Escalante Plateau National Monument, the huts are a welcome reprieve from some challenging days on single track and dirt roads taking riders up epic climbs to amazing views. They are fully stocked with gourmet food, snacks, beverages, water, showers and everything to make it as comfortable as possible. Guest can cook on the grills outside and cozy up to fire pits to take the high desert chill away. The group I joined is mostly from Colorado and gather once in a while at destinations like this. They had a sag truck to carry some provisions and the group dog. All seemed to love the hut and the route and the abundance of food and snacks. Said one rider, “they even have Peanut M&M's” which seemed to be an important provision. The daily routes are between 25 and 40 miles with options for longer treks to scenic spots. After the group breakfast, riders had all day to make it to the next hut and when possible the sag truck would park somewhere in between with refreshments. Said Jeff Oehm of Lakewood, “The huts are well thought out and stocked with good food and comfortable beds. The trails and roads were great and very challenging in places. This part of Utah is stunning and so uncrowded, was well worth the drive from Denver.” Fisher's company provides destination, endurance oriented travel experiences all over the world and discovered this area about 10 years. He lives in Las Vegas, operates three bike shops and has built a company revolving around the bike. It took a while to get the permits to start installing the huts and connecting the trails. He said, “Covid actually helped push this project to the finish as the Forest Service was able to re-evaluate the situation and we got approval last year. This is our first year of operations and it's gone very well. We have accommodated over 500 cyclists this summer. Any tour operator would be happy with that I think.” The experience can be customized to accommodate a private group or open to a single rider with a variety of diets and food preferences. They also have bikes, and e-bikes for rent.

Episode 160 - Are You A Hunter Or FarmerI recently heard about two different personality styles that modern humans can be grouped into. While we all descended from hunter/gatherers, most humans began practicing agricultural a few thousand years ago. However, some of us still have the more dominant hunter/gatherer genes.Video Link: https://youtu.be/VB62Czj50HoYoutube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEkqz4gWjlIRaQx_zWgTZqQ?view_as=subscriberCheck Out My E-Commerce Company - ZER0ats - the world's first and only naturally flavored, sugar-free oatmeal.https://www.zeroats.com

Last year, at the height of the pandemic, a new campaign called the “All For Farmers” initiative was launched to help farmers across the country who were facing financial hardship. Through a partnership with the non-profit – American Farmland Trust (AFT) – Tillamook awarded 130 grants to farmers in 25 states. The grants mainly went to under-represented populations in the farming community, including female, nonbinary, LGBTQ+, BIPOC, and beginning farmers. Tillamook County Creamery Association – the Oregon-based dairy co-op known for its epic cheese, ice cream, and yogurt – is a champion for the future of farming. Jocelyn Bridson, Director of Environment & Community Impact, Tillamook County Creamery Association talks with Mark Alyn about the future of farming.

This Stew Makes Us Think Of Southern Cooking But It's Actually Much Older Than That! Welcome to October 12, 2021 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate a Southern melting pot and those who work the land. When we think of gumbo, the hearty stew of seasoned vegetables and seafood or meat, we immediately think of Southern cooking. For this we can thank it's older West African roots that blended with Native American and European traditions to create a culinary classic. Traditional recipes call for okra, a vegetable that thickens things nicely, but you may have also heard of gumbo filé. This Choctaw spice made from dried sassafras root, also thickens the stew and was most likely used when okra was out of season. And if all else fails you can tighten things up with a good old fashioned roux. Or leave the cooking to an expert! On National Gumbo Day, celebrate this “melting stew” that warms us during chilly seasons. Farmer's Day has been celebrated since the mid 1800s and it's easy to see why. These folks contribute to much more than just the food on our table. From early on, people who worked the land set the bar for hard work and their products have affected many industries from manufacturing to transportation. For proof, you can look at a whole host of products from leather goods to textiles and even the ethanol in our gas tanks. These days it's more important than ever to support your local farmers. Even city slickers can do their part by purchasing from markets and visiting restaurants that take pride in their farm to table menus. On National Farmer's Day, celebrate the way of life that sustains us all. I'm Anna Devere and I'm Marlo Anderson. Thanks for joining us as we Celebrate Every Day.
Our story tonight is called “The Pumpkin Farmer” and it's a story about a family tradition and the harvest that comes after a season of careful tending. It's also about a long table set out beside the barn with every chair taken, a flannel shirt with the sleeves rolled up and living in step with the seasons. So get cozy and ready to sleep.
