Missouri Farm Numbers Decline Slightly in 2005

(COLUMBIA, MO) - Missouri farm numbers, estimated at 105,000, are down slightly from last year, said Gene Danekas, Director of the USDA-Missouri Agricultural Statistics Service. The complexion of Missouri agriculture has and continues to change, while life economic conditions and lifestyle choices are the major contributors to the decline.

A farm is defined as any establishment from which $1,000 or more of agricultural products were sold or would be sold during the year. Missouri ranks second in total number of farms, following Texas. Total land in Missouri farms is estimated at 30.1 million acres with an average farm size of 287 acres.

Missouri farms in the economic sales class of $1,000 to $9,999 are estimated at 57,900, down 2 percent from a year earlier. Farms in the sales group of $10,000 to $99,999 totaled 36,100, down slightly from 2004. The $100,000 to $249,000 group is estimated at 6,400, up 200 farms from last year. Farms in the sales groups of $250,000 to $499,000 totaled 2,700, up slightly from 2004, while farm with sales of $500,000 and over totaled 1,900, up from 1,800 in 2004.

Number of Farms and Land in Farms 2005 Summary

The number of farms in the United States in 2005 is estimated at 2.1 million, 0.6 percent fewer than in 2004. Total land in farms, at 933.4 million acres, decreased 2.9 million acres, or 0.3 percent, from 2004.

The average farm size was 444 acres during 2005, an increase of one acre from the previous year. The decline in the number of farms and land in farms reflects a continuing consolidation in farming operations and diversion of agricultural land to nonagricultural uses.

Farm numbers and land in farms are broken down into five economic sales classes. Farms and ranches are classified into these sales classes by summing their sales of agricultural products and government program payments. Sales class breaks occur at $10,000, $100,000, $250,000, and $500,000.

Farm numbers declined in the three smallest sales classes and rose in the two largest sales classes. Part of the decline in the smaller sales classes was due to normal attrition, such as retirements. In addition, some operations transferred to larger sales classes by enterprise expansion. However, the majority of the changes in the sales classes were likely due to rising incomes. Many farms and ranches near the top of their sales class in 2004 moved into the next higher sales class in 2005 without adding land or otherwise expanding their operations.

The largest percentage changes from 2004 occurred in the smallest and largest sales classes. Farm numbers declined 1.1 percent, to 1.17 million farms, in the $1,000 - $9,999 sales class. Meanwhile, farm numbers increased 3.8 percent, to 79,410 farms, in the $500,000 or more sales class. The number of farms with less than $250,000 in sales fell 0.8 percent from 2004 and the number of farms with $250,000 or more in sales rose 2.4 percent.

Land in farms also shifted from lower sales classes to higher sales classes. In the $1,000-$9,999 sales class, land in farms dropped 2.1 percent, to 118.4 million acres, while land operated by farms in the largest sales class, $500,000 or more in sales, increased 3.0 percent, to 209.9 million acres. Farms with under $250,000 in sales operated 571.3 million acres, or 1.7 percent fewer acres than 2004. Farmers in the two largest sales classes, representing operations with sales of $250,000 or more, operated 362.2 million acres, up 2.0 percent from 2004.

Over all, the average farm size increased in 2005. However, average farm sizes declined in the sales classes due to smaller farms moving up to higher sales classes.

COLONEL CHARLES AVEN RODGERS (3/25/1935 – 6/10/2019)

Charles Aven Rodgers, age 84, passed away on June 10, 2019 from complications from Primary Lateral Sclerosis. The Colonel was a 37-year veteran of the Colorado Army National Guard. He is survived by his wife Donna; their four children: Debbie (Michael Lovejoy), Lu Ann (Don Hostetter), Robin (Kevin Schneider) and Chuck (Heidi); 13 grandchildren, and 12 great-grandchildren. Charles was preceded in death by his parents Emily Jessee and Harold Rodgers, and his brother Raymond Rodgers.

Charles Aven was born and raised in Niwot, Colorado, although he did spend time on the Charley Rodgers family farm north of Memphis.

Charles Aven’sAunt Dorothy and Uncles Junior and Mert owned and operated Rodgers Jewelry on the square in Memphis for decades.  He was a frequent visitor to Scotland and Clark Counties over the years.

Charles Aven’ssurviving first cousins from Missouri and Iowa include Karen (Rodgers) and Richard Tuttle of Kahoka, MO, Sherry Rodgers of Gilbert, AZ, Kevin and Becky Rodgers of rural Williamstown, MO, Larry and Zelma Rodgers of Rolla, MO, Jenny (Rodgers) and Cory Stoneburner, Carla (Rodgers) and Nick Harris, and Sarah Rodgers and companion Matt Haugstad, all of Boone, Iowa.

The Memphis family that predeceased Charles Aven arehis grandparents Charley and Beulah (Barr) Rodgers, his uncles William (Junior), Cecil, Bobbie Lee, and his Aunt Kathleen (Rodgers) Johnson.

Back in Niwot and contrary to policy at the time, he joined the Colorado Army National Guard at the young age of 14. This began a life-long commitment to the Armed Forces of our country. After graduating from Longmont High School, he became a lineman apprentice with the Public Service Company of Colorado in August 1953, and he worked for Watts Hardy Dairy driving the delivery truck and married his high school sweetheart, Donna Jean Cito, that November.

For the next several decades, Charles climbed the ranks of both the Colorado Army National Guard and the Public Service Company of Colorado. In the National Guard, he was commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant in 1957, and then promoted to 1st Lieutenant in 1960, Captain in 1964, Major in 1972, Lt. Colonel in 1978, and finally Colonel in 1985.  He was simultaneously advancing his career as a lineman, ultimately being promoted to Director of Labor Relations in 1987. Charles credited his advancement in both organizations to his work ethic, dependability, and a steadfast commitment to continue learning throughout his life.

In the 1960’s and 70’s, Charles was the President of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local Union 1436, was the President of the Boulder County Labor Council, and one of several Vice Presidents on the Colorado Labor Council. As he has always been, Charles was devoted to a life of service: working diligently to improve the livelihood of his peers, friends, and colleagues.

Charles retired from the Army National Guard in 1987 and from the Public Service Company of Colorado in 1992, with 37 and 38 years of service, respectively. He retired from the Public Service Company of Colorado in March 1992. He was such a devoted employee that his boss cried as Charles retired. After retirement, Charles remained committed to his church, volunteered with Meals on Wheels, and was a member of the Boulder Elks Lodge #566. He was also a lifelong member of the Admiral Arleigh Burke Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America. Charles held several leadership roles in this organization, including President of his local chapter in 2004 and 2005.

Charles will be remembered as a man who understood commitment, put God, country, and his family first, and could always be relied on for a helping hand and a good conversation. He will be missed by all who knew him.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be June 20, 2019 at 10:30 am at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, Lafayette CO, with reception to follow. Burial will be at Foothills Memorial Garden, Longmont, CO at 2:00 p.m. Ahlberg Funeral Chapel in Longmont, CO was entrusted with arrangements.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to TRU Hospice Services of Boulder County, Immaculate Conception Catholic Church of Lafayette building fund, or Meals on Wheels of Longmont or Boulder County.

Hummingbirds Arriving

I have been enjoying this weather. I never thought I would say that we need a shower but honestly my garden is dry and hard.  I have so many things I want to do outside. 

The hummingbirds are keeping me busy filling the feeders. I have two wrens here at the house and Bluebirds in the front yard.  How much more could I ask for?

Some of you may notice that you are seeing less of the Hummingbirds this time of year. The absence of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in late May and early June (in a normal year), is normal.  In fact, fluctuation in feeder attendance is to be expected.  Depending on where in the state you live, the arrival and departure of breeding and migratory birds vary.  In the spring, a surge of northbound migrants use nectar at the feeders.  Once the migrants pass through Missouri, the crowd tapers off, leaving the state’s breeding summer residents, a sizable population in Missouri’s wooded landscape.

Males are fiercely territorial, defending feeders and flowers for the females to use during the spring nesting season.  But nesting females don’t visit the feeders often.  Rather, they spend their time hunting insects to feed their newly hatched nestlings. After the young fledge in eagerly July, more birds will gather at the feeders again. 

As southern migration starts in late summer and early fall, the number of resident hummingbirds may decline.  Adult males are the first to depart, heading out in early July.  Females and the young follow. Backyard feeders serve as welcome pit stops, offering birds a place to reset and refuel.  Feeder visits will reflect this as the flow of southbound migrants through Missouri increases, peaking around Labor Day.  The crowd of hummers will gradually taper off until the last hummingbird straggles through in mid-October.

My rule of thumb on feeding them is May 1 through October 1. This usually catches all of them.  I thoroughly enjoy them and their diving bombs and protective feature. Quite a lot of entertainment for sure.

 Until next time, good birdwatching.

Great Seal

The Great Seal of the United States was adopted by Congress on June 20, 1782.  On July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress appointed Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams as the committee to select a design for a national seal. The new nation needed a symbol of sovereignty to authenticate its international treaties and transactions. It took six years and three different committees before a suitable image was selected that would illustrate the principles upon which the new nation was founded. In June of 1782, the task was turned over to the Secretary of Congress, Charles Thomson, who created the final design using elements suggested by the other committees and images and mottoes of his own.  In September 1782 the first Great Seal was cut and the die used to begin sealing the peace with England.  Each element of the seal has a symbolic meaning. The front of the seal depicts a bald eagle holding an olive branch in its right talon and 13 arrows in his left. A shield on its breast has 13 red and white stripes topped by a bar of blue. In the eagle’s beak is a banner with the Latin motto E pluribus unum (Out of Many One).   Above the eagle’s head golden rays of light are breaking through a cloud surrounding thirteen stars forming a constellation. The image on the reverse of the seal depicts a pyramid of 13 steps, the Eye of Providence, the year of independence in  Roman numerals, and Latin mottoes.

Backup Plans

In my area, June has been a very pleasant month for outdoor activities. There have been many days where the mornings have had a nip to them and where the midday seemed almost deplete of any humidity. These will soon be overcome by the sweltering days of August. But until then I will savor each moment.           Fishing has become the pastime of most outdoorsmen. Many of these trips have a camping aspect attached which makes them even more memorable. I’ve already enjoyed a night on the riverbank, sitting beside a campfire. I enjoyed a baked potato cooked by the embers from the fire, along with fried redeye that was caught that evening. I often challenge myself by not taking anything of substance to eat on these trips. If I catch something, I eat. If I don’t, I don’t. This makes me fish for quantity and not quality. I use the bait I think is most likely to catch a fish – any fish. And what otherwise would be catch and release, is now catch and cook, even the ones that are usually considered too small. It’s a fun way of really seeing if I could live off my little land. The key, however, is not having a backup plan. And to be honest, even something as little as one night without a good meal doesn’t sit well with me. That’s really a shame. I have never known of anyone who died from missing one meal. We Americans could stand to miss a few more. But I digress.

Do you have backup plans? Most of us do. Sometimes we never know what they are until we are put in a predicament whereby plan A fails. It’s at that time our mind begins to work frantically to find another way; to make it work; to adapt, overcome, improvise. And all of this sounds honorable, but did you know that real faith- the greatest faith – has no backup plans. There are no contingent strategies if plan A fails. Did you know that God calls us to trust Him in this way at times? It’s true. Even in the first and most basic aspect of our hope, God asks us to trust Him to get us to Heaven. We do, and then leave it there, without any thought of what we might do if we are wrong. If God would ask us to trust Him in this, without any backup plans, why would He not ask us to trust Him this way in other matters as well? He would and He does. My friend, don’t think it strange if God asks you to do something and leaves no room for contingencies. He is simply testing the depth of your faith. Real faith jumps far enough out, leaving no possibility of reaching back to anything that might be attached to the security that we just left. Sometimes it’s God or nothing.

SCH Among 25 Hospital Selected for National Grant

The Texas A&M University Center for Optimizing Rural Health (CORH) is pleased to announce that Scotland County Hospital is one of 25 hospitals selected to receive technical assistance from CORH. The Texas A&M University Center for Optimizing Rural Health (CORH) was recently created as a technical advisory center for vulnerable rural hospitals; it is a part of the A&M Rural and Community Health Institute (ARCHI) and is funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).

The grant funding will provide consultations and tools to assist small, rural hospitals to identify and address issues that may be contributing to their future viability or financial vulnerability. This grant  helps rural hospitals identify the challenges facing small hospitals and works with those hospitals to create solutions for how health care can remain in the rural communities across America.

“Our grant writing team put together a powerful application that certainly caught their attention,” said Randy Tobler, MD, CEO, Scotland County Hospital. “Our leadership team will work with the Center’s team to identify areas for improvement, strategize potential solutions, and develop a specific action plan with goals of keeping services close to home. We’ll keep the community abreast of how that looks as we work through the grant options.”

The Center will provide guidance and assistance in reaching the hospital’s goals including active support for a 12-month period and availability for continued assistance on an as-needed basis going forward. According to the CORH officials, this will happen through virtual facilitated/mentored intervention through educational materials, webinars, and facilitated peer-to-peer learning discussions.

Changes in the healthcare delivery system have left smaller, more isolated hospitals in precarious situations as health care has become more dependent on technology and specialization in medicine; however, even as much care has moved to centralized centers, quality care is highly dependent upon local access to excellent primary care, timely transfer when a higher level of care is needed, and reliable communication across levels of care. Scotland County Hospital officials will work with officials from the Center to enhance the community’s provision of high quality, local care and assure that the people they serve have access as needed to the high tech care of the 21st century.
