Farm show season is in full swing! Gary and Angie headed to Peoria, Illinois this week for the Peoria farm show. A great crowd attended despite less than favorable weather. We have a lot of things going on this time of year, planters are starting to enter the shop for rebuilds, and new cover crop projects are taking flight. With the colder weather some guys were able to get into the field and finish harvest, there is still a lot of crop in the field yet. The Buckeyes play this weekend for the Big 10 championship, tune into that Saturday.

Have a great weekend!

In Season Cover Crop Planting
Cover Crops have been around for year and more and more growers are finding ways to fit them into their operation. From keeping soil in place, to reducing inputs, there certainly are benefits to be taken advantage of. The problem 99% of growers that I talk to face is how to plant their cover crops. When we get fall weather like we did this year, post harvest planting is out of the question, which makes us look further into the growing season to start establishment. At Fennig Equipment we Specialize in planting cover crops into a standing crop. We offer Salford row units to get your seeds in a row, which could double as a bean planter. The rotary hoe bar pictures above lightly incorporates seed in a 12" band between the 30" rows and has been a big success. A lot of growers are looking at seeding cover crops at side dress time to do both in the same pass, though you are relying on rain since it is not an incorporation pass, this can still be very successful. If you are interested in learning more about interseeding covers, give us a call at 419-953-8500.
Cassie's Country Cupboard Weekly Recipe:
Gingerbread Loaf
The smell of this loaf baking in your oven will bring everyone around the table to reminisce about Christmas memories. Perfect for breakfast, brunch, or a snack! Be sure to use pure maple syrup, not the “maple-flavored” syrup.
Gingerbread Loaf
2 c. flour
1 c. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. ground cloves
½ tsp. ground nutmeg
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. ground ginger
1 egg
1 c. milk
½ c. pure maple syrup
1 T. vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Combine first 8 ingredients in a large bowl. In another bowl, combine the eggs, milk, syrup and oil. Stir into the dry ingredients just until moistened. Pour into a greased 9x5-in loaf pan.
Bake for 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10-15 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve with butter or whipped cream cheese.
