The governor of Michigan won't issue new mandates in a state that is reported to be home to the biggest COVID-19 surge in the country. Hospitals in Michigan had a 30% surge in admissions in the past week.

Growers love their role of producing food. Many have found it hard to turn down offers of putting solar panels on part of their land. At a rental rate of $1,000 per acre with a 30-year lease, it's very attractive.

Spent 24 hours in Nashville last week. Skyline there is rapidly changing. My trip there was to RFD-TV studios to host Agronothon. More than $10,000 raised for FFA scholarships during the event. You can still donate to FFA.
