A friend of my wife gave her a copy of The Fence Post, published by Greely Publishing Co. It has a reprint of my column from last month on the Powers Ranch.
I had not heard of the publication until the editorial director, Eric Brown, contacted me for permission to reprint the column. It’s a weekly agriculture publication that reaches readers across Colorado, Wyoming and western Nebraska. The copy I got included a cover story on sugar beet yields, along with articles on “The Great Snowstorm of 1913,” the aging farmer population, Miss Rodeo Colorado 2013, the Colorado Farm Bureau annual meeting and more.
Tons of advertising, too. Plenty of classifieds, with categories such as Equine Services, Tractors, Hay & Feed and Fencing Materials.
