Indiana Farmers Union Convention to Feature Regional Farm and Food Advocates…

first_img SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Nov 10, 2017 Indiana Farmers Union has a terrific line-up for this year’s annual convention, to be held November 18 at Taxman Fortville, 29 S. Main St., Fortville. This free event offers a full lunch buffet by Taxman Fortville, a film screening of “Farmers For America,” giveaways, and food and farm advocates speaking throughout the day.FILM SCREENING:Farmers For America: The documentary traces the extraordinary changes coming to America’s food system as more and more consumers flock to farmers markets, embrace farm-to-table lifestyles, and insist on knowing the origins of their food. At the center of the film are the farmers, young and old, who provide the spirit and energy to bring urban and rural America together over what both share in common: our food. These farmers reflect nothing less than the face of America. With the average age of today’s farmer at 60, and rural America losing population as the cost of land and equipment soars, this film reveals the people waiting to take their place, the practices they’re championing and the obstacles they must overcome.FEATURED SPEAKERS:Joe Maxwell will discuss the power of industrial agriculture, the effects of market concentration on rural communities, and how farmers can work together to change the system. Maxwell served as the 45th Lieutenant Governor for the state of Missouri. Maxwell, who now owns and operates a successful pasture-raised hog operation called Maxwell Farm, was born in Kirksville, Missouri and grew up on a farm near Rush Hill in rural Audrain County, Missouri. Maxwell currently serves as the Executive Director for Organization for Competitive Markets and as President of the recently established Family Farm Action, and he is a member of the National Agriculture Advisory Council for The Humane Society of the United States.NFU honorary historian Tom Giessel will share his historical knowledge and findings on the early years of the Farmers Educational Cooperative Union of America, which grew out of the old Farmers’ Alliance organization. Giessel will speak on the original organizers and their history, how they organized Farmers Union locals and carefully structured the organization politically, and how Indiana Farmers Union got its start and developed into a modern-day organization. Giessel currently serves as Honorary Historian for the National Farmers Union and President of the Pawnee County Farmers Union.Other special guests and speakers include Katie Moyer, owner of Kentucky Hemp Works; Kent Yeager, Agriculture Liaison to Senator Joe Donnelly; National Farmers Union Membership Director Tom Bryant; and Indiana Farmers Union President James Benham.What: Indiana Farmers Union Annual ConventionWho: Indiana Farmers Union members and others interested in learning more about membership opportunities and benefitsWhen: 10 a.m to 4 p.m., Nov. 18Where: Taxman Fortville, 29 S.

Suarez makes first appearance for Uruguay after bite ban

first_imgLuis Suarez set up Uruguay’s goal in the 1-1 draw against Saudi Arabia, as he made his first appearance for the country since his ban for biting.The Barcelona forward’s strike came off the post before it was diverted into his own net by Hassan Muath Fallatah.The 27-year-old was initially banned for four months and nine international matches, for biting Italy’s Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup.That was changed to nine competitive internationals on appeal.The ban will end in time for Barca’s El Clasico game against Real Madrid on 25 October. Suarez was available for last month’s friendlies against South Korea and Japan, but Uruguay coach Oscar Tabarez opted to leave him out of squad.In July, the former Liverpool player was suspended from all football-related activity for four months following the incident during the final Group D match in Brazil.The severity of the punishment was reduced on appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sport, allowing the striker to train, play in friendlies and take part in football-related activities.last_img read more

10 months agoSouthampton boss Hasenhuttl demands intensity lift from players

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Southampton boss Hasenhuttl demands intensity lift from playersby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveSouthampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl is demanding a higher level of intensity from his players.The Austrian cancelled a day off last week, conducted intensive video sessions and staged one-on-one meetings with his players. His methods worked wonders as Sunday’s victory over Arsenal, the first at home since April, moved Southampton out of the relegation zone.”You can be sure as long as I am manager that if I have the feeling one guy makes one step less, I will tell him. And when I tell him, I am sure he will immediately improve,” he said.Hasenhuttl rewarded his players with a day off this week and admitted it would be tough to change a winning side. “At the moment I am happy I found a first XI who showed me against Arsenal that it is possible they fit well together,” he said.”I am not in the situation that I’ll change everything because one or the other player is a little bit tired. That is not in my mind at the moment. I am glad I’ve found a first XI and to get in this team is not so easy because they put something in my account and showed me they are able to win.” last_img read more
