We know you were wondering … Chuck got his iPhone 5S this week and it is now in action as one of our newest agriblogging and farm podcasting tools! You can probably count on him writing about it on AgWired soon.
This week Cindy spent time in Minnesota with Growth Energy and New Holland at Absolute Energy, an ethanol plant near Lyle. You can find her coverage on AgWired. Looking ahead, Chuck will be in Canada next week for the Canadian Farm Writers Federation convention and Cindy will be off to Germany with BASF. They’re getting some international miles in this summer!
