Good Morning from a finally very clear, very sunny Knolltop.
The moon was full and bright this morning as we went across the road to milk. And now it's given way to a beautiful sunrise! While we're supposed to have our peas in by tomorrow...Good Friday...mine aren't even close to being put in. The ground has not been touched and the first pea hasn't even been purchased. And they are predicting a snowstorm for tomorrow...yippee...how fun.
The All American Beef Battalion is on its way to it's first steak feed! I'm not sure how many of you know about this effort, but I wrote a story on it recently. Bill Broadie, a cattle buyer for Superior Livestock, yes the same one that has the auctions on RFD-TV, is a Vietnam vet and came up with the idea that the U.S. beef producers should feed every member of our troops a steak. He and his board of directors are running a campaign to collect funds to be able to put on a steak feed for troops that are coming home, or being deployed and for all those all over the world fighting for freedom. His desire is to show our troops that we support them and that we are willing to feed them good American beef!
You can read more about this effort at their website, www.steaksfortroops.com.
What's exciting is that they are going to put on their first steak feed in Olathe, Kansas in April and it's going to be quite an event. They are still ironing out all the details, but as they become available, I will provide them here, or you can visit there website. It's an exciting venture!
Better go get breakfast!
