I gave him a powerful reccomendation of you based on your work on the blog and what you're trying to do w/ farming now. They're willing to extend the deadline if you're interested in this and have the flexibility to participate. If you're not able to, they want to speak to you sometime about the blog when they're in McCreary County. My assistant, Jenny, is going to be calling you today to see if there's anything she can do to help in this process. You should probably list me as a reference as I know several of the folks at the Center for Rural Dev. where the selection committee will come from. Hope you're interested in this. Your blog really speaks volumes for your potential and I would love to see that channelled to helping E. KY. Thanks. Johnathan Joel:

You can look up a schedule online. It culminates in a trip to an Indian reservation out west. Your only expense would be a few meals and travel to and from (locally... the reservation would be paid for by them.) Joel:

It\'s a great program that\'ll provide tons of insight into how entrepreneurship could help w/ what you do and help you help others in this area. There\'s not a lot of time left, but the application is fairly easy. It is a big committment but if you have the flexibility it\'s well worth the while. Here are some links: http://www.uky.edu/Ag/CLD/KECI/apply.html (application page) http://www.uky.edu/Ag/CLD/KECI/about.html (about KECI) http://www.ca.uky.edu/agc/video/ontheair/ (see the second video down... \"entrepreneur roundtable\") Joel:

What I seem to have the easiest and cheapest time getting is corn gluten. We mix it 50/50 with crushed corn and feed it to goats and cows. Pretty good mix. BJs grandpa gave me his feed recipe and he uses distillers grain in it. He's not very fond of gluten. Lots of folks here are getting displaced by projects. Be it road or building. Seems to only be 2 ways you can come out. Either you make twice what it's worth or you get about half what it's worth. Cobb has moved their bird date to Feb 1. However the builders are saying they should be done by January 1. That would be a whole month of pay without birds. That would make me smile. Hopefully they can get these things under roof before we get very much bad weather. Kevin,
