Ohio Farm Custom Rate Survey for 2016

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest A large number of Ohio farmers hire machinery operations and other farm related work to be completed by others. This is often due to lack of proper equipment, lack of time or lack of expertise for a particular operation.  Many farm business owners do not own equipment for every possible job that they may encounter in the course of operating a farm and may, instead of purchasing the equipment needed, seek out someone with the proper tools necessary to complete the job. This farm work completed by others is often referred to as “custom farm work” or more simply “custom work”. A “custom rate” is the amount agreed upon by both parties to be paid by the custom work customer to the custom work provider.Ohio State University Extension collects surveys and publishes survey results from the Ohio Farm Custom Survey every other year and we need your assistance in securing up-to-date information about farm custom work rates, machinery and building rental rates and hired labor costs in Ohio.This year we are updating our published custom farm rates for Ohio. Extension Educators in Ohio will be disseminating surveys at select educational activities throughout the winter. There is also an online survey option that anyone can access. The online survey is available at: http://aede.osu.edu/customrate2016We would ask that you respond even if you know only a few rates.  We want information on actual rates, either what you paid to hire custom work or what you charged if you perform custom work. Custom Rates should include all ownership costs of implement & tractor (if needed), operator labor, fuel and lube. If fuel is not included in your custom rate charge there is a place on the survey to indicate this.You may access the survey at: http://aede.osu.edu/customrate2016The deadline to complete the survey is March 31.last_img read more

BJP zero in work but hero in polls: Shiv Sena

first_imgDubbing its ally the BJP as “zero in work but a hero” in polls, the Shiv Sena on Monday said it won’t put the blame on “faulty EVMs” for its defeat in the recent civic polls in Maharashtra.“There was a time when the Congress used to win every election. They were zero in work but hero in polls. Similar is the case with the BJP today,” an editorial in Sena mouthpiece ‘Saamana’ said.On Friday, the BJP emerged victorious in Latur and Chandrapur municipal corporations, out of three civic bodies that went to polls on April 19. The Congress emerged as the single largest party in Parbhani municipal corporation.The Sena held six seats in the outgoing House of Latur, but could not even open its account this time around.However, it said that despite the loss it will not blame the EVMs to be faulty, unlike the opposition parties.“This time, the Sena was unable to even open its account. We will not blame faulty EVMs for the BJP’s resounding victory but a research should be done as to why people are getting swept and farmers and youth are rallying behind the the BJP like a snake does behind a snake charmer,” the Sena said.It said that the BJP’s win in the recent polls is due to the inefficiency of the Congress.“On top of it, the victory is guaranteed when you have the entire state machinery and help of Sangh (RSS) members,” the Sena said.“This is the season of the BJP’s victory and will continue for some more time,” it noted.“(Prime Minister) Narendra Modi at the Centre and (Chief Minister) Devendra Fadnavis in Maharashtra are experimenting with new tricks everyday.“They will continue to win until people get bored of these experiments, and others, despite they doing their work seriously, will only continue to face defeats,” the Sena said.In the elections to the 10 municipal corporations across the state held in February this year, the BJP won eight civic bodies. The party also made inroads into the hinterland in the elections for 25 zilla parishads.last_img read more

Making it to the Olympic trials last year was a huge accomplishment for me and for him to say, ‘My son went to the Olympic trials.’”Aric tried to follow a similar musical path as his father. He learned the violin, followed by the piano, drums, saxophone, guitar and back to the drums.

My attention span was never there.”At first, baseball was his passion. He was a middle infielder until track entered the picture. He ran the fitness mile as a seventh grader and finished in a blistering time of 5 minutes, 45 seconds.In high school, he switched full time to running and attended the University of Colorado, where he was turned into a steeplechaser, a 3,000-meter race that features jumping over barriers and running through water pits. The school is renowned for producing elite steeplechasers such as Jenny Simpson — now a 1,500 Olympic medalist — and Emma Coburn, who earned a bronze medal at the Rio de Janeiro Games.“Just something I wanted to do. It looked fun,” Aric said.ADVERTISEMENT This was a way of carving out his niche. His father has one of the most famous last names in rock history. It trails Aric wherever he goes. He embraces it. He even has a clever turn of phrase on his Twitter account — “Exercising with the Devil.”“I like (having this name). It’s cool,” he said. “And I don’t think it’s anything, because I don’t know any different.”Alex Van Halen helped form the band with his brother, Eddie, in the ’70s. They’ve had countless hits (“Jump,” ”Runnin’ With The Devil”), iconic album covers (1984) and legendary lead singers (David Lee Roth, Sammy Hagar). The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007.“My dad occasionally tells me stories, but I really don’t ask because when he wants to tell me, he can tell me,” Aric said. “He likes to play his cards close to his chest.”Aric’s not sure how much longer he wants to compete. His best steeplechase time is 8:32.92 in 2014. In contrast, Olympic silver medalist Evan Jager has a lifetime best of 8:00.45.He’s thinking of a career switch, maybe a move behind the camera. He was a freelance photographer/videographer for Colorado last fall and was in charge of the camera that fed images to the Jumbotron at football games. He had a front-row seat to the Buffaloes’ turnaround season as they finished 10-4 and captured the Pac-12 South.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Cayetano to unmask people behind ‘smear campaign’ vs him, SEA Games Magic sees Lonzo as 1 piece in Lakers’ grand rebuilding plan Aric Van Halen jumps into the water during a heat of the first round of the men’s 3,000-meter steeplechase at the U.S. Track and Field Championships, Friday, June 23, 2017, in Sacramento, California.

Eight charges for Dominican poachers due in court Tuesday

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 27 Jul 2015 – Held at gunpoint, 28 poachers were busted by TCI officers on Thursday afternoon in a collaboration between law enforcement and civilians which seemed to nab a group of Dominicans who had so far caught nearly 2,000 pounds of lobster, parrot fish and conch – illegally. Eight charges will be leveled against the men from the Dominican Republic tomorrow when they head to court, namely: Taking marine product without a license; taking marine product using breathing apparatus; possession of spear guns; taking marine product by use of a spear gun; use of unlicensed vessels; possession of egg-bearing lobster; possession of parrot fish; and possession of crawfish during the closed season. Magnetic Media is informed that this pilferage of TCI waters has been an on-going problem which eluded law enforcers. A civilian tip led to the red-handed capture; we understand that two boats got away…and still 14 illegal vessels were seized in the raid.
