?Local residents chosen as State Fair Farm Family for Andrew County
Brandon and Kristin Rasnic and family of Fillmore, MO were among the families honored during the Missouri Farm Family Day, August 15 at the Missouri State Fair. The Rasnic family was selected as the Andrew County Missouri Farm Family by the Andrew County Extension Council and local Farm Bureau. The family includes children, Blake and Autumn Rasnic. Each year, the fair sets aside a day to recognize farm families from across the state who are active in their communities, involved in agriculture and participate in local outreach and extension programs such as 4-H or FFA. The annual event is sponsored by five partner agencies, including the Missouri Farm Bureau, the Missouri Department of Agriculture, the Missouri State Fair and Commissioners, the University of Missouri College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources, and University of Missouri Extension. This was the first year in its 58 year history that all 114 counties participated by nominating a family. The event showcases the impact Missouri Farm Families have on the economy and heritage of our state. "These families are involved in agriculture activities in their communities, and are active participants in local outreach and extension," said Missouri State Fair Director Mark Wolfe. "As the showcase for Missouri agriculture, the Missouri State Fair is most certainly the appropriate place to celebrate these families."

Don't guess — Soil test and save time and money
Soil testing is the best guide to the efficient use of fertilizer and soil amendments. Whether you grow acres of row crops or have a vegetable garden in the backyard, a soil test will provide you with an analysis of nutrients and a set of recommendations for improvements. Soil testing can be done through the extension office. The cost for a regular test is $15 per sample box. Additional fees are required for additional tests. Each sample box requires 2 cups of dry soil. Results will be mailed to you in about 10 to 14 business days. See additional MU publications for information on soil testing.
