Happy May Day! I have had a great visit in Illinois visiting Lake Land College and family. Our pastureland grass is lush and green. Illinois has been hit with a lot of rain this spring. Dad *hopes* to plant corn next weekend. Had a nice afternoon catching up on blogs. Here are a few that caught my eye:
2. Here’s an update on the Ohio Livestock Care Standards.
3. The seven-year tax depreciation schedule for farm equipment may soon change to only five-years.
5. Last week I conducted a real estate closing in Manhattan with a woman who brought her two dogs to work with her each day. Have you considered making your workplace “pet friendly?”
6. Are you “self-made?” Read this post on how it may affect your estate plan.
7. For your technology nerds, I thought this was a handy post regarding converting data on Microsoft Word to Excel.
9. Have you checked out the U.S. Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) Agriculture Marketing Service (“AMS”) Farmers Market Directory?
10. Think about these five tax tips for those of you who are going through a New York divorce. Also, there might not be a defense to New York’s “no fault” divorce after all. Alternatively, are you thinking about buying a home with your significant other in New York?
11. For those of you who are law students, did you hear about the new LLM Program at the University of Oklahoma in Energy, Natural Resources, and Indigenous Peoples. I also make no secret that I’m a fan of this LLM Program in Agriculture and Food Law.
14. This is a type of problem that I would like to have.
16. I enjoyed reading this interview with the Executive Vice President from the North Dakota Stockman’s Association and this interview with Bill Donald, President of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. Speaking of interviews, in case you missed it, I really enjoyed reading this interview with Dr. Temple Grandin.
