Cut to the Chase: Attitude of gratitude

by Rebecca French Smith

So often, we miss opportunities to say “thank you.” Small moments or small gestures slip by us before we recognize them, but this time of year, we are acutely aware that we should give thanks. Thanksgiving celebrates just that, but throughout the year we should live with an attitude of gratitude toward those who feed, clothe and provide fuel for us: farmers and ranchers.

Perhaps if

Cut to the Chase: Thanksgiving time

by Diane Olson

The house fills with aromas of a traditional Thanksgiving Day meal: turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pies and rolls. Family and friends join together to share food and fellowship during this season.

As you prepare for this celebration, you may wonder about the cost of this year’s Thanksgiving meal. According to the annual Marketbasket Survey conducted by the Missouri Farm Bureau and the American Farm Bureau, the cost of

Cut to the Chase: Bacon is big

by Stewart Truelsen

Bacon is undoubtedly America’s best-loved and most maligned meat product. It has been the subject of studies trying to link consumption of large amounts of processed meat with some cancers, and nutrition consultants often discourage clients from eating bacon because of its fat content.

Yet, bacon hasn’t lost any of its sizzle. The American Meat Institute reports that bacon has an almost cult-like following with dozens of

Cut to the Chase: Rural votes matter

by Linda Johnson

The red and blue highlighted U.S. map we see so frequently as election time nears can be disheartening for rural voters. They may rightly begin to wonder if rural votes make a difference in any race where metropolitan areas exist. The answer is “yes.”

For example, President George W. Bush won the rural vote in 2004 by 19 points. In 2008, President Barack Obama performed unusually well

Cut to the Chase: Motivate me, don’t mandate me

by Rebecca French Smith

When my boys were little, we used to tell them not to eat their broccoli, peas or sweet potatoes, or whatever disgusting thing lurked on their dinner plate. Tell kids not to do something and they want to do it. It was a neat trick when my kids were little, before they figured out my game. Now, local and federal governments are playing games when it

Cut to the Chase: One size does not fit all

by Chris Chinn

The beginning of school always inspires change in our home. Our oldest child began a new chapter in her life by starting high school. We expected her schedule to be hectic with ball practices and games, church youth group activities, homework and time spent with her friends. Our younger son has ball practices and games of his own. We didn’t expect this new routine to include packing

Cut to the Chase: Politics, the Farm Bill and your next meal

by Ben LaCross

Parched and burnt cornfields, hayfields as yellow as the sun and chalky, dry soil are images we’ve seen from the record-setting drought of 2012. The farm bill is supposed to be the safety net for agriculture, especially in catastrophic disaster years such as this. But alas, chances of passing a new farm bill, which is set to expire on Sept. 30, are wilting as fast as a

Cut to the Chase: Farm progress

by Blake Hurst

I just returned from a short trip to the Farm Progress Show with my dad. Held every other year in central Iowa, the show has hundreds of acres of the newest and best farm equipment, crop hybrids and gizmos. Crowded with farmers window shopping, it is one more example of how much ingenuity has gone into American agriculture in the last century.

For me, it brought back

Cut to the Chase: Drought challenges all aspects of ag

by Bob Stallman

One of the greatest attributes of a general farm organization such as Farm Bureau is that it represents farm and ranch families who raise all different types of food and fiber. At the same time, one of the biggest challenges facing a general farm organization is that it represents farm and ranch families who raise all different types of food and fiber. This summer’s drought brought that
