"Big Valley Mini Bales" If a small bale is what you need they can be purchased from Carrie Peachey Porthill Idaho, ph. # 208-267-7999. Peachey had a regular size baler altered to produce a small hay bale that weighs app. 10 pounds. This baler pops out a bale every foot as it travels down the windrow. Amazing idea put to use.

Alton Beachy

Alton Beachy, (on left) A panel of speakers talked and answered questions at Friday’s Conklin AgroVantage Field Day in Fredericktown.
In his comments to the farmers, Beachy emphasized the importance of taking care of the soil and feeding all the microbes living in it. “Respect the soil and feed it,” Beachy said. “I’ve always said that I’m a livestock farmer. I feed millions of head of livestock, but I never see them.”
The Plain City corn farmer said that since he started taking care of his soil by balancing the nutrients in it, his worm population has increased, which keeps the soil aerated and ideal for plants taking root. That, combined with the right balance of major and minor nutrients, has improved both the yield and the quality of his crops. “You just have to pay attention to details,” Beachy said."

Captain Phillip L. Beachy

Asbury Park, NJ, USA. LAKEHURST — For the Navy community here, Friday marked the continuation of an old service tradition, and a bittersweet welcome and sendoff for two of its commanding officers. His successor, Capt. Phillip L. Beachy, strode into a traditional change-of-commander ceremony, to the sound of a bell and bosun's pipe from the age of sail, flanked by sailors in the multicolored work shirts of a nuclear aircraft carrier. And when he spoke, Beachy spoke of what many in the base gymnasium were thinking. "As many of you know, there's someone missing today," said Beachy, whose wife, Angela, died Feb. 16 at the age of 44 after a battle with cancer. The Beachy family is very active in the First Presbyterian Church of Toms River. "I can't tell you how important my faith has been, especially these last couple of years," Beachy said as his daughter, Amanda, looked on. In the close world of families on a naval base, spouses are an important part of the community. Phillip and Angela Beachy had been together for 20 years, from his early days as a helicopter pilot. "I used to tell her she was much more suited to be a C.O.'s (commanding officer's) wife than I was qualified to be a C.O.," Beachy told the audience. "She would have done so well."
