Improving My Crop Production
Farming is often thought of as a simple thing, whether you are growing crops or growing animals. However, the complexities in raising farm animals can be huge, and even the smallest actions every day can change how well your farm produces–especially when it comes to raising cattle. One of the small things you can do wrong when raising cattle that will completely preclude your ability to make a good profit is feeding your animals the wrong thing.
When your livelihood depends on the quality of your crops, it is important that you put out the best crop possible. One of the biggest aspects of producing great crops is the soil. Some areas of the United States have better soils than others, but there are a few things that you can do that can increase the quality of your soils. One of the most common ways to increase the quality of your soil is to use a high quality fertilizer.
Almost every farm and ranch across the country uses multiple pieces of equipment and has several barns and outbuildings. Any one of these could start on fire at any time. It's extremely important that a ranch or farm make sure they are taking the steps to prevent fires and have the basics needed to fight them should one break out. This is important not only to the farmer's equipment, property, livestock, and livelihood, but to the surrounding community as well, especially if the farm or ranch is located near a heavily forested area.
Attempting to grow a healthy, lush lawn can be a time consuming and expensive endeavor. You must first choose the type of grass you are going to grow, and then you must decide if you are going to grow it from seed, sod, or plugs. Fortunately, you can make this process quicker, as well as a whole lot less expensive. By choosing to grow St. Augustine grass seed, and learning to grow your own grass plugs, you can have a beautiful yard at a fraction of the price and a fraction of the time.
After I started farming professionally, I realized that I could be doing better. My crop wasn't quite as productive as I would have hoped, and it was costing me a great deal of money.

I realized my mistakes, and I was able to make the right changes to turn things around. This blog is all about improving your farm, so that you can create a better tomorrow for your family.
