Stay Here With The Donkey
Later on, God tested Abraham"'s faith and obedience.
"Abraham!" God.called. "Yes,," he replied. "Here I am." "Take
your son, your only son-yes, Isaac, whom you love so much-and
go to the land of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering
on one of the mountains, which I will point out to you." The next
morning Abraham got up early. He saddled his donkey and took
two of his servants with him, along with his son Isaac. Then he
chopped wood to build afire for a burnt offering and set out for
the place where God had told him to go. On the third day of the
journey, Abraham saw the place in the distance. "Stay here with
the donkey," Abraham told the young men, "The.boy and I will
travel a 'little farther- We will worship there, and then we will
come right back." (Genesis 22:1-5, New Living Translation)
Sometimes, God will test your faith. He will take you to the
place of Jehovah-Jireh ("The Lord will pro\ ide") but you have
to be willing to be obedient and trust him: If you notice above,
God told Abraham to take Isaac, referred to as Abraham's "only
son" because when God had told Abraham to get Ishmael out,
Ishniael was put. Ishmael was not the son of promise but the son
of compromise because old Abe's faith was wavering and he lis-
tened to his wife instead of God.'Isaac was the-son of promise
and now God was asking Abraham to sacrifice him.
If you'll notice, though, as Abraham prepares to go up the
hill with his only son that he has learned to trust God. He tells
his servants:. "Stay here with the donkey. We will be right back
after we worship." Abraham knew that God would provide and
God did. After Abraham had laid Isaac on the altar and was pre-
pared to give him to God, he noticed the ram in the bushes.
I've been in times of testing and, each and every time,
though I might not see it at the time, I have actually been to Je-
hovah-Jireh. God has provided again and again.
God provided for my salvation as He gave Hjis only Son, Je-
sus Christ, to become a living sacrifice for my soul. His blood
has washed my sins away.
If you want to, you can stay here with 'the donkey, or you
can come climb up the hill with me.

In "The Sound Of Music," Maria contem-

heart and family. She sings "Somewhere in my
youth or childhood, I must have done some-
thing good."
Well, somewhere in my youth or child-
hood, I must have done something truly fantas-
tic. How else to explain the warm oceans of
love that have washed over me. For the past
two months. mn ev ery wish and need have been
granted. I have never felt so loved in my life.
This then, is my Thanksgiving letter.
To the doctors, nurses, housekeeping, and
other personnel at Madison County Memorial
and Tallahassee Memorial Hospital who tended
to me, thank you for your thorough attention,,
unfailing patience, and prompt expertise. After
saving my life, you guided me into learning
how to build a healthier one. What a treasured
gift!
To my housemate who rushed me to the
emergency room- hat can I say? Thanks is not
enough.
To my praying friends, thank you for the
cradle of prayer with which you surround me.
Your constant contact with Heaven led my doc-
tors, provided assistance in a myriad of needs,
and taught me the paths of patience. You
tapped the source of my healing.
To everyone who brought gifts, visited,
sent cards, called or otherwise contributed to
my well-being-liow could I have managed
without your kindness and support? You can't
imagine what your presence and your presents
did for me. (please accept my apologies for the
times my conversation took a strange turn or

loved it.
To my students for the flowers, visits, cards,
and concern-what a fortunate lady I am! Keep.
up the generous spirit.
To my cohorts at this newspaper-thank you
for your patience with my sudden dropping out,
and for your undoubtedly difficult challenge of
translating my handwriting for these recent
columns. (My handwriting looks like someone
dipped some worms in ink and let them crawl.
around on some paper.)
To the friends and relatives who tended my
house and dog, cleaned my refrigerator, re-
plenished my pantry, carted me around from.

other things which I could not do for myself-if.
I had the nine lives of the proverbial cat, I could.
never repay your kindness and thoughtfulness.
I could go on, but I won't. Suffice it to say that
I couldn't possibly have done ever done any-.
thing to deserve the outpouring of love that has .
flooded my life since Octber 3.
At this Thanksgiving season, I have untold
numbers of people to whom I must express my
deepest gratitude. You are precious to me, and I
appreciate you more than words can say.

have blessed me. May God bless you as richly;

Celebrate

National Family Week
Thanksgiving week has been designated, as National Famil]
Week. For more than 30 years, the Alliance for Children and
Families has coordinated and promoted this annual observance
throughout the country. It is a time to honor the special connec-
tions that support and strengthen families.
According to the ACF, National Family Week embodies the
philosophy that children live better lives when their families are
strong, and families are strong when they live in communities,
2 that connect them to economic opportunities, social networks,
and services. -7
You may wonder what makes a strong family? Over the
years, there has been research on the topic. Extension Special-
ists at the University of Nebraska recently sunummarized some of
the findings. "We know that poor relationships w within the fam-
ily are related to many of the problems in society." note family
researchers Nick Stinnett and John DeFrain. Their conclusions
are that strong fanmi lies are made, step by step over time.
There has always been the age old question of quantity vs.
quality. We've often heard that quality time is better than quan-
tity. Stinnett and DeFrain found that quality time in large quan-
tities has been found to be one of the important steps necessary
to achieving a strong family. Shared time benefits families be-
cause it eases loneliness and isolation. nurtures relationships and
creates a family identity..
With the bus\ schedules families face. you hae to be cre-
ative in planning time together. Learn to, be flexible and use
every moment that presents itself ito connect with family' mem-r
bers in meaningful ways. Here are a few suggestions:

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus).is a bacterium, frequent-.

cause illnesses ranging from minor skin infections (such as pim-

eases such as pneumonia, meningitis. endocarditis, toxic shock
syndrome i TSS), and septicemia. Each year some 500,000 pa-:

"In today's business environment, consumers - and employ-
ees - have come to expect more from companies like ours. Gone
are the days when we can make gestures toward "the en viron-
ment; our actions have to match our \\ ords.".he said. "We un-
derstood from the beginning that going for LEED certification
would mean additional effort and expense, but the payoff is up-
holding our commitment to environmental integrity in our oper-
ations."
Some of the environmental highlights of the Nestl6 Waters
Madison Bottling Facility included:,
* Recycling of more than 75 percent of construction waste
materials
* Use of 50 percent of wood from sustainably managed
forests
* Use of natural light in all critical viewing areas
* Landscaping with vegetation native to northern Florida
To achieve one of four possible LEED ratings - Certified,
Silver, Gold or Platinum - a project must earn a predetermined
number of points from a detailed checklist of environmental fea-.
tures. Although the ratings for office structures have been in
place since inception of the program. industrial buildings have
only recently become LEED certified in the last few ,Nears.
The Nestle Waters bottling facility in Madison County has
been in operation since January of 2004. The facility currently
has 646.000 square feet under roof and employs 200 people. It
is one of only nine LEED-certified facilities in the entire state.
The others include residential, office and retail structures.
In addition. NWNA eliminated 245 million pounds of plas-
tic per year from its bottles over the past decade, and developed

hemia, Va. During his youth, Mr. Bowers
tagged along with the field workers and gandy
dancers and learned to sing old call-and-answer
songs. He recalls, "The music I heard while
working in the fields was mesmerizing."
In the late '60s, Bowers took up the guitar.
"The roots of the music had gone real deep in
me," he explained. "Music was real fulfilling,
unlike anything I had ever done before." Eveni-
tually, Mr. Bowers was.introduced to the auto-
harp. "I ran into a guy that ... could get the harp
in good tune," he said. "He played without any
fingerpicks, just with his fingernails. He had a
real sprightly style on it. It was the first time I'd
heard someone play it in, good tune and play it
well., It opened my eyes and my ears. I went out
and got one the next day." In 1971, Mr. Bowers
played for coins in Seattle, Wa., as a street
singer and in bars for the right to pass the hat.
He later headed east and played in the "blue-
grass community."
Bryan Bower's creativity and talent have
won him induction into Frets Magazine's First
Gallery of the Greats after five years of win-
ning the stringed instrument, open category of
the magazine's readers' poll. This distinction
put him along side other luminaries, such as
Chet Atkins and Itzhak Perlman, recognized for
their personal accomplishments. In 1993, he
was inducted into the Autoharp Hall of Fame to

The Wiregrass United Way is
a locally operated, non-profit cor-
poration which identifies social
'problems in the community, then
organizes local resources to com-
bat those issues.
The main way that the com-
munity is aided, is through the
funding of 35 "Member Agen-
cies," which are independent, lo-
cal, non-profit, charities that each
directly serve individuals with
needs.
The United Way believes that
funding these organizations is one
of the most efficient, effective
way for resources to be channeled
into the community, and they rec-
ognize that these agencies have
the know-how to make your dol-
lars "stretch" to their greatest po-
tential.
The Wiregrass United Way
also has the ability and power to
create new agencies, if needed, or
start other programs if a particular
problem in the community can't


be solved by an existing agency.
To increase the organized ca-
pacity of Wiregrass Citizens to
care for one another, is United
Way's mission, and the resources
they direct into services are pri-
marily gathered through the annu-
al United Way Campaign, in
which they go to the citizens of
the Wiregrass and ask them to do-
nate through Employee Cam-
paigns, Letter Campaigns, and
other personal ways.
If you need the aid of a chari-
table organization in your area,


then contact WireGrass United
Way at (334) 792-9661. People
calling the Wiregrass United Way
will be directed to the organization
best suited to help them. Unfortu-
nately, they cannot directly aid any
individuals or families that contact
the Wiregrass United Way.
They operate by funding the
agencies and programs that pro-
vide aid, thus relieving them of
some of the work of Fund Raising,
so that they can focus their efforts
on helping individuals as set by
their specific mission.

LOOKING BACK AT GRACE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH


By Jessalyn Covell
Greene Publishing, Inc.
On May 20, 1973, a his-
torical decision was made in
Madison County. The majority
of the members of the Madison
Presbyterian Church, along
with the Reverend John Bald-
win, who was the pastor at the
time, voted to split from their
parent denomination, The
Presbyterian Church of the
United States.
It was not an easy decision
due to the ties going back
many generations. As the
many years had gone by, a ma-
jor shift had taken place in that
denomination. The influence
of liberal theology had grown
to the point where members of
the Presbyterian Church
thought that the denomination
was no longer completely
holding true to the Scriptures.
the Reformed Faith. and the
Great Commission..
The next two years, from
1973 to 1975, the congregation
was engulfed in litigation over
the question of ownership of
the church property located on
Range Street in dow ntown
Madison.
In June. the majority of
the membership of the Mladi-
son Presbyterian Church and


S.. i I �





Madison's First Presbyterian Church was founded in 1840 and located at North Range Street. The original
wooden structure had a steeple and was remodeled in 1912. (Photo courtesy of Treasures of Madison County)


Pastor John Baldw in % vacated the church property when ordered by the civil courts and began
meeting for regular worship at the Madison Women's Club. This is when the Grace Presbyterian
Church \%as established and continued to meet for congregation for the next seven \ears.
In 1982. the congregation received four and one-half acres of property on the north side of


Range Street as a gift from Mr.
and Mrs. Thed Fraleigh, Sr.
Immediately, a building pro-'
gram was established to con-
struct a facility for worship,.
prayer, ,instruction in God's.
Word and service to the Lord'
and Savior Jesus Christ.
On May 29, 1983, under the
leadership of the Reverend Nat
Heeth, the congregation dedi-,,
cated the'new building at 1200
North Washington Street to the
glory of God.
On April, 19, 1988, a torna-
do completely destroyed the
five-year-old -structure. The.
church wasn't the only thing!
the tornado destroyed. The tor-
nado leveled the Madison
County Public Library, the
chapel and auditorium on the
campus of North Florida Ju-
nior College, and it wrecked
many homes, and claimed four
lies.
For the next five \ears. the
congregation returned to the
Madison Woman's Club for
regular worship services, and
established a plan to erect a
new building on the same site
as the one which had been de-
strosed. The first service in the
new sanctuary% was held on
January 1990.
On September 9. 1990 Pas-


tor James L. Cavannahd and the members in the congregation dedicated their new% building to the
glory of God and proclamation of His HolN Word.
Since 1973, the Grace Presb\terian Church has been standing tall and proud and glorifying
the Lord.

It's Going To Be Wing-T Against Wing-T


By Janet Schrader
Greene Publishing, Inc.
. Tonight the Cowboys face
Bolles School out of Jack-
sonville in the state semi-finals.
The winner of this game takes
the trip to Miami to play in the
state championship game De-
cember 1, at Dolphin Stadium.
Bolles is currently undefeated
and was rated number-one Class
2-A football team in the state in
the last Florida Sports Writers'
Association poll. Their coach,
Corky Rogers, is the winning-est
high, school football coach in the
state. However, Rogers said the


Bolles schedule did not compare
to Madison's schedule. "Madi-
son played a lot tougher sched-
ule than we did," Rogers said.
"Some of the teams we always
play that are tough, just weren't
having that good a year."
The Cowboys are ready to
play. "They're excited about
having the number-one team in
the state come here and play in
Boot Hill Stadium," Carroll said.
The last time the Cowboys
played Bolles, they lost. It was
2002 and Bolles went on to win
the state championship. In 2001,
it was the other way around. The


Cowboys beat Bolles and went
on to win the state title.
"If we're gonna get beat, we
want the team that beats us to go
on and win state," Rogers said.
Bolles plays the Wing-T of-
fense just like the Cowboys.
."We mix it up some," Rogers
said. "But the basic offense is the
Wing-T. We throw and run about
50/50."
According to Rogers, he has
a lot of injuries. Coach Carroll
said take that with a grain of salt.
Rogers does list his number-one
fullback, Ryan Vanresburg, as
being "iffy" for Friday night's


game. "He might see some play-
ing time," Rogers said. "We
have three or four other major
injuries."
Carroll said the Cowboys
are almost 100 percent. Jay
Culpepper is still recovering
from. his injury but will play
some Friday night. He is the
only injured Cowboy.
Bolles will run a similar de-
fense to Madison. "Their de-
fense is rock solid," Carroll
said. "They're well-coached, al-
ways in the right place at the
right time. They're not going to
give you anything."


Bolles has a good senior
quarterback Randy Hardin.
He's already committed to
Southern Mississippi. Carroll
said Hardin is better than the
6'5" quarterback Pensacola
Catholic threw at the Cowboys
last Friday.. They have two re-
ceivers of note, according to
Rogers. Look for #1, Senior
Trey Herndon and #4 Chris
Jones. They have a good tail-
back #6, senior Andre Byrd.
On defense, Rogers mentioned
#32 Scott Betros, a middle
linebacker.
Rogers felt the bus trip and


playing on Boot Hill will be to
their disadvantage. They lost
the last time they played here.
"Playing on Boot Hill is al-
ways tough," Rogers said. "We
have total respect for the Madi-
son program. They get their
players to play hard. We're go-
ing to work hard and come
over there and play with pas-
sion."
"Our players are going to
go out there and play their
best," Carroll said. "We've got
nothing to lose. If they beat us,
they're going to have to be bet-
ter than us, and they're not."

final score was 51-35.
At the half, Mayo was up

hard against the more experi-
enced Mayo team. Mayo wore

gins contributed nine points
and six rebounds.
"The team worked hard
but missed 11 free throws and
needs to work on handling the
ball better arid cutting down on
the number of turnovers," said
Cowgirl coach Chris Neal.
The Cowgirls also partici-
pated in a preseason tourna-
ment at Aucilla Christian No-
vember 7-8. The Cowgirls
played Taylor County. "The
girls performed well in the
first half, trailing 18-14," said
Neal. "They started the second
half off slow and ended the
game with a 40-25 defeat
They did well for the first
.ame and hp\,e a lot of v. ork it
do."


Neal said he has a young
team with many of the girls
playing varsity ball for the first
time. Look for more Cowgirl
basketball at home Tuesday,
November 28, when the Cow-
girls host Union County. The
JV Cowgirls play at 5:30 p.m.

Cowboy basketball hit the
road to open their season with a
pre-season classic in Bronson.
The Co\\boys played two
games. The first game was a
57-36 loss to Bronson. The
Cowboys lost the next game of
the tournament to Santa Fe 77-
41.
According to Coach Eddie
Richie, the guys got off to a
good start. "We got off to hot
start, 7-0 in the first minute of
play," Richie said. "Then the
wheels came off. We had a to-
tal of 28 turnovers. We hung in
for the first three quarters, then
Bronson starting taking advan-
tage of our mistakes. It was our
first game so we were a little
nervous., At least we know
what we have to work on."
c,,The next game of the tour-
nament for the Cowboys was,
against Santa Fe. Richie said
the team was unprepared for
the numbers of shooters the
Cowboys had to deal with from
Santa Fe. "We were just over
.matched and not prepared to
cover the amount of shooters
Santa Fe had," Richie said
about the 77-41 loss. "They
ended up with a total of 15
three-pointers. We were lazy on
defense and, again, turned the
ball over too much in key situ-
ations. We went in at halftime
with a chance to compete, then
came out dry in the third quar-
ter. We desperately need to im-
prove our defense and
turnovers if we want to com-
pete this year."

Against Bronson Mike
Bruton led the team with 12
points, three rebounds and four
assists. Xavier Tillman scored
10 points; had 12 ,,bpundsand
six blocks.
In the Santa Fe game,
James Mobley was a key play-
er with seven points and nine
rebounds. Mike Bruton scored
eight points with two assists.
Again, Xavier Tillman hit a
double/double scoring 16
points with 12 rebounds and
four blocks.
Look for the Cowboys at
home when Madison hosts
Wakulla in a marathon basket-
ball event on Friday, December
8. All Madison teams will play
starting with the JV Cowgirls at
5 p.m. and ending with the var-
sity Cowboys' game around 8
p.m. Come out and enjoy at
night of Cowboy basketball.

Pre-Kindergarten Students Experience Farm Life First-Hand


The Pre-Kindergarten
Classes of Heather Douglas,
LaWanda Jennings and Amy
Webb from Maclison County
Central School recently com-
pleted their unit on farm animals
and farm life with some very ex-
citing and memorable activities.
On Wednesday, October 18, the
students from all three classes
rotated through centers partici-
pating in farm activities such as
shelling peas, digging for pota-
toes, picking peanuts, shucking


corn, looking for straws in a
haystack, potato sack races and
egg relays. All of these activi-
ties helped the students to gain a
better understanding of the re-
sponsibilities of a farmer and
what life on the farm is like.
They also realized that a
farmer's job is not an easy one!
On Thursday, October 19,
the three classes visited "The
Painted Pony" in Lloyd, Flori-
da. While at "The !Painted
Pony," the students had the op-


portunity to interact with many
farm animals such as chickens,
bunnies, pigs, sheep, a donkey,
a cow and horses. The students
were even given the opportuni-
ty to feed some of the animals!
The students also enjoyed a
snack of animal crackers and
lemonade, a hayride around the
property, and they got to get up
close and personal with one of
the horses as they dipped their,
hands into paint antd decorated
him with their colorful .hand-
prints.
The teachers would like to
thank Henry and Tanya Terry
and Ernie Phillips, of Lee, for
providing the produce and hay
used for the special farm cen-
ters. They .would also like to
thank Ms. Bob and all of her
friends at "The Painted Pony"
for providing the students with
the opportunity to learn more
.about farm animals and life on a
farm.

Platt Family Farm Is Getting Back To Grass


By Janet Schrader
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Platt family was just
honored by a big win in the
Southeastern Hay contest. Troy
and his dad Harold "Hot Shot"
Platt entered the contest in two
categories and won both. They
placed first and third in Grass
Baleage and first and third in
Legume Baleage. It's: all come
about through something new
they are trying.


Greens? Gi
It's Thanksgiving again.
Where does the time go? In
Madison County and all over
the South, good Southern
cooks are boiling up pots of
greens to go with that
Thanksgiving turkey and
pumpkin pies. When I first
began cooking Southern-
style for the. man of the
house, I had to learn to cook
greens.
Now, I can bake a cake to
die for. My turkey is, always
moist, never dry, and golden
brown and stuffed with melt-
in-your-mouth cornbread
stuffing. I can fry chicken
even Granny would have
been proud to serve, make
lemon meringue pie, blueber-
ry crunch pie or loaf of bread
good enough to win blue rib-
bons at the fair. But I didn't
know how to make a pot of
greens. And I have to confess,
I was embarrassed to ask.
There's a lot that goes
into a pot of greens. What
kind? Do you buy collards,
mustards or turnips? Do you
need the turnip still on the
green? Which one tastes
best? I decided to try all of
them. What the heck? Go for
broke.
I got home with about a
bushel of rubbery green
leaves and the mustards,
which were a lighter green,
had hair! (Gross!)
Then what kind of sea-
soning (mostly a variety of
pig fat like hocks, neck bones
or knuckles) should I use?
My stepdaughter had provid-
ed me with a cookbook filled
with old Southern recipes and
low and behold there was an
actual recipe for preparing


The Platts moved here
from Brevard County two years
ago. Platts farmed in. Brevard
Since the 1800's. The counts
down there %\ as just getting too
crowded so they sold out and
moved their cattle and horse op-
eration to Madison. Between
the acreage they own in
Greenville and the acreage just
outside of Madison, the Platts
own almost 5,000 acres. "A lot
of that is the Hixto\n S\% amp,"


... That's




t Schrader, Columnist-

reen What?
greens.
To prepare the greens, I
had to wash them, and wash
them, and then wash them
some more to get all the sand
out of them. Then I chopped.
That bushel of leaves quickly
turned into a gigantic pile of
chopped greens. It was enor-
. mous! I had to hunt for a big
enough pot. The man of the
house had a greens pot. It
barely held all of the chopped
leaves, the hocks and the wa-
ter needed to cook them.
I put the filled pot on the
stove. The recipe said add
red pepper flakes. In they
went. The recipe called for a
tablespoon of white vinegar.
I added that. Soon the.house
smelled.. .really different.
Suppertinie arrived and
it was time for the taste test.
My in-house greens ex-
pert sat down to try them out.
"Not bad," was the man
of the house's judgment.
Since then I have learned
other tricks of greens cook-
ing. I have discovered I pre-
fer turnips greens. The man
of the house likes mustard
greens. I've learned to
choose only the smallest
leaves in the bunch or buy
younger tenderer bunches. I
boil the greens, drain and add
fresh' water, then cook. I chop
greens really small. I've.
learned no matter how full
the pot is, it will boil down to
nothing. And I've learned to
like them.
People have told me if
you eat a lot of greens you'll
live 'to be, 100. I'm on my
way. I can now cook a decent
pot of that mysterious South-
ern specialty-greens..


Troy Platt said. But they still
ranch a lot of land in Madison
County.
Most of the land they have
is for grazing cows and forage
crops. The family owns around
1,000 head. Originally, the
Platts' were a cof/calf opera-
tion. Recently, they have decid-
-ed to raise grass-fed cattle and
feed them out themselves. Be-
cause of this idea, they have
moved into raising perennial
peanut hay and instead of feed-
ing dry hay, they are working on
feeding.baleage. Baleage is hay
that is rolled and put up when
it's wet, then it's w rapped in
white plastic. The Plans bale
hay when it's got a 55 percent
moisture content. The resulting
baleage product smells and
feeds like silage. The legume
baleage looks like soggy, green
peanut leaves and the cows
can't wait to dig in.
Harold Platt said you can
feed the hay baleage to horses.
He knows because he does. The'
Platts have around 30 quarter
horse brood mares and three
studs. They feed the horses the
grass baleage.
When the Plans decided to
go grass-fed, they did some re-
search. They, discovered the
Tallgrass Cattle Company on
the internet. This company spe-
cializes in grass-fed beef. They
are very interested in the Platt's
operation because in Florida
they are hoping to be able to
feed-out beef cattle on pasture,
the grass hay and baleage year-
round. Out. west, it's strictly a
summer operation.
Tallgrass Cattle Company
has a website at
Tallgrassbeef.com. They are
currently looking for partners to
raise and feed out their special
grass-fed product. The beef they
are specializing in eats no grain,
has no growth hormones fed to


it and is an almost organic prod-
uct. The high-quality beef is be-
ing marketed to restaurants and
specialty shops in the north
right now, but the companN
hopes to expand nationwide.
The Platts said they had to
change the nature of their herd
as ell as their hay to hook up
with the Tallgrass Cattle Com-
pany. They are moving from
Brahna/brangus cattle into the
European-type of cattle, mainly
Angus. They have Angus bulls
on the property and may artifi-
cially inseminate some of their
cows as well. "You have to have
the right geneics." Harold Platt
said. "Not all cattle can be fin-
ished this way."
The perennial peanut hay is
also new for the Platts. They
only have around 36 acres of it
so far but plan to greatly expand
that amount in the near future. It
was this perennial peanut hay
baleage that won the legume
baleage contest for them.
Both of the Platts say to in-
crease the quality of your hay
you need to test every cutting.
"The key to getting good forage
and knowing the quality of your
forage is, getting samples,"'
Harold Platt said. ""The samples
will give you the RFQ (relative
forage quality) of your hay.
Knowing the RFQ is how you
make your hay quality better."
The peanut hay baleage is'
what they are counting on to
produce grass-fed beef for the
Tallgrass Company. Currently,
the Platts have two different
pastures with 41 heifers in one
and 45 in another they are feed-
ing out for this program. Even-
tually, they plan to have 1,500
cattle in the program. They are:
hoping the cattle will be fin-
ished out soon. In the last three
months, the heifers have gained
around 400 pounds each. A fin-
ished cow will weigh between

1,000 pounds and 1,150
pounds. Tallgrass has special
equipment to test the cows.
Each cow gets a tenderness
score, back fat measured and
the rib eye measured. "You
know what each of your ani-
mals is going to produce before
it goes to slaughter," Harold
said.
The grass-fed cow. is sup-
posed to produce a much
healthier product according to
the Platts and the Tall Grass
website "As much as half less
fat,' Tallgrassbeef com. said.
"At least twice the amounts of
Omega-3 essential fatty acids..
Omega-3's have been proven to
reduce the risk of cardiovascu-
lar disease, high cholesterol,
and high blood pressure. They
have also been shown to reduce
the risk of cancer, improve
brain function, and reduce the
risk of dementia. As much as
five times the amount of CLA, a
fat that is one of the most potent
cancer preventers. CLAhas also
been pro en to improve metab-
olism regulation and"to help
overweight people lose weight.
Significantly higher levels' of
Vitamin E, an essential vitamin
in which many Americans are


deficient. Vitamin E is a po,\ er-
ful antioxidant."
"We'got in'o this grass-fed
thing and we think we can make
a deal of this," Harold said.
- The Platts butchered a
cow that did not make the
grade just to try it out. They
took it to a local butcher who :.
was' not enthusiastic about
grass-fed beef. After he saw
the Platt's cow, he said it was
one of the best carcasses he'd '1.',
had in the plant. .
"It 'was very tender," ,
Harold said. "The'fat of grass-
fed beef is supposed to be yel-
low. This was nice and white.
You have to cook it different.
It doesn't have a lot of fat. Use
a lower temperature."
The Platts plan to market
their beef locally as well as
through the Tallgrass Cattle
Company. The price for one of
their finished cows should run
$1.90.a pound with the buyer
paying .the slaughtering costs.
They will also sell replace-
ment heifers and bulls eventu-
ally for local ranchers that
want to get into this business.

grass-fed beef check out the

Tractor Sales Down ,'f


By Janet Schrader
Greene, Publishing, Inc.
According to the Novem-
ber 21, Bloomberg Report,
Deere & Co., the world's
largest maker of farm equip-
ment, said. first-quarter and
2007 profits will trail analysts'
estimates amid a sales slump
in agricultural and construc-
tion machinery.
To offset the slowing
sales, Deere said they will
limit their production to avoid
excess inventory. Deere Chief
Executive Officer Robert
Lane said the high fuel costs
and high fertilizer costs are


eating into farm budgets.
Deere predicts sales of agri-
culture machines in the U.S.
and Canada will get off to a
slow start in 2007.
Locally, Clarence Sparks
of Sparks "' Tractor Company
said, "We're doing pretty
good. Sales have dropped off a
little bit but it's just that time
of year." Sparks' added that
business is always dead
around the holidays. "People
are just interested in buying
Christmas toys and presents
this time of year," Sparks said.
"They're off some, not a
lot," said Lee Gordon. Gordon


said most of their business
comes from part-time farmers.
He doesn't foresee this part of'
the tractor industry dropping
off in sales. "They all have
jobs," Gordon said. "They
don't depend on their farms
for income. Their tractor buy-
ing is not something they
make a living off of."
The drop in housing
starts, causing a weakness in
construction is also affecting
construction heavy equipment
sales and the forestry equip-
ment business, according to
the Bloomberg Report. Deere
& Co. also makes this kind of


equipment.
The report, said'..e en
though corn and wheat prices ,
are climbing, the farmers are
limiting their equipment pur-
chases because higher costs
have offset their gains. Farm-
ers are also worried about con- .
tinued drought conditions next
year and even higher fuel -:,
prices. The higher corn and'-,.;
wheat prices will also affect,
the dairy business, the cattle .'
production industry and hog
and chicken producers. These
types of farmers may limit
their purchases of new equip- - ,--
ment as well.

Madison County Farm Bureau Holds Annual Farm/City Breakfast


By Emerald Kinsley
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Madison County
Farm Bureau hosted its an-
niual Farm City Week
Breakfast on Tuesday
morning. November
21. The meeting be-
gan with a prayer
and the pledge of
allegiance to the
flag. The deli-
cious break-
fast, for vaoce O AWRna
everyone
in atten-
dance,
consisted of biscuits and
gravy, scrambled eggs,
sausage, grits, orange, juice.
and milk. The local NMadi-
son County Farm Bureau has
been saluting Farm City
Week with the annual break-
fast for the last 15-20 years.
The special guests at
this year's Farm City Week
Breakfast were the Madison
County .Commissioners and
the Madison Cit.\ Commis-..
sioners. Bob Richardson,
'Florida Farm Bureau em-
ployee for 31 years, was the
guest speaker. .He spoke on
the importance of agricul-
ture in our culture. He stat-
ed, "The relationship be-
.ween the agricultural indus-
:y and the community is a
otal commitment."
Farm City Week is a
;ime to bring the urban sec-
tor together with the farm-
ers. The week preceding
Thanksgiving is nationally
'designated as Farm City
Week., This is a week to re-
flect upon the importance of
agriculture, and what farm-
ers and ranchers mean to the
economy of our country, our
state, and our nation. Dan
Buchanan said, "After 9/11,
tourism dropped off all over
the nation, but Florida never
missed a beat because of
agriculture. Agriculture is


truly the backbone of this
state and of Madison Coun-
ty."
Farm City Week .is cele-
brated on a nation-wide
scale asa time to foster
betterr understanding
between the two
great, societies in
S our nation. those
\ ho live on our
farms and
ranches, and
CuLTrunZ those who
live in
urban
America.. Both seg-
ments are totally dependant
upon each other. The city
folks could not live without
food producers,, and the
farmers could not do %\ without
the city folks to buy their
products. Farm City Week
is a special time to recognize

Two Men Injured In Hunting Related Incidents


A 19-year-old Ocala
man was critically injured
Monday in the second of two
unrelated hunting-related in-
cidents since Saturday
morning, Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation -Com-
mission (FWC) law enforce-
ment officers said.
Jeffrey Boyan was trans-
ported to the Level 1 Trauma
Center at the University of
Florida's Shahds Hospital in
Gainesville following the
1:20 p.m. Monday shooting
incident, FWC Officer Jeff
Summers said.
The shooting, which oc-
curred near Cabin Road in


the Lower Suwannee Na-
tional Wildlife Management
Area in Levy County, is un-
der investigation by FWC
officers. The Levy County
Sheriff's Office was first no-
tified, and then called FWC
officers to investigate. Addi-
tional details were not avail-
able late Monday afternoon.
In the second incident,
William Scott Curl, 39,
Williston, drove himself to
Munroe Regional Medical
Center in Ocala with non-
life threatening injuries after
being shot by a fellow
hunter during a 7:30 a.m.
Saturday (Nov. 18) incident,

"Always be sure of your
target and what is beyond,"
Northeast Region hunter
safety spokesman Greg
Workman said. "Treat every


gun as if it is loaded.
"If hunting alone, let
someone know where you
will be hunting and when
you plan to return," he said.
"If possible,. carry a cell
phone with you. When
hunting out of a tree stand,
wear a.safety belt or har-
ness. Take an approved
hunter safety course and al-
ways use safe-hunting prac-
tices."
Anyone born on or after
June 1, 1975 cannot pur-
chase a hunting license in
Florida without first suc-
cessfully completing an ap-


proved hunter safety course.
"Even if a hunter is not
covered bytlie hunter safety
course requirement, it is a
good idea to take' the
course," Workman said.
"We have hunters return af-
ter having taken the course
years ago to refresh their
memory about safe-hunting
practices."
