Greetings from Missouri. We wish our Irish friends good health and success in dealing with COVID-19 and economic concerns created by it.

Well, another year and we arrive at another set of new adventures. The last two years have given us extremes in weather and farming issues. 2018 brought us record drought and extremely poor yields; 2019 was almost the opposite in that the year was wet for most of the spring, making planting of corn and soya beans almost impossible to complete on time – in fact 10m acres never got planted here in the US.
