Our editors spend some time roaming the web looking for stuff cattle people and others in agriculture might find useful or entertaining. 

Mud Puddles Beware

Apr 04, 2014

The gloves are coming off as congressmen and women learn about the proposed regulations in the Clean Water Act. Perhaps they are finally hearing from those in agriculture who are up in arms about the EPA asserting regulatory authority over streams and wetlands. NCBA says even the ditch along your road could be regulated. The uproar is not divided among partisan lines, with some Democrats also speaking out against the proposed rule.

The Dirt on Clean Water Act

Unhappy Hunting

Hopefully you weren’t one of the 900 across the country who purchased drone hunting licenses online from Deer Trail, Colorado, resident Phil Steel. The documents – sold for $25 each – are not valid. The Deer Trail community voted overwhelmingly against allowing a similar license, a legal one, to be sold. But that’s not stopping Steel, who sold the fake licenses as an anti-government, anti-surveillance statement. Next on his agenda: filing a citizen’s initiative to turn Deer Trail into a marijuana distributor to boost town coffers. Looks to us like Steel has done well lining his own pocketbook.

Cheap Travel

Looking for a way to vacation without paying expensive airline fees to get there? As long as you’re not looking for many amenities, FedEx might be an option. Apparently around 600,000 people attempt to ship themselves each year. Some are found with snacks and drinks inside their box. (Not sure what they do about the after-effects of snacks and drinks.) Others show up with a mailing label stuck on their body.

Peanuts not included

Hawaii on Hemp

Hawaii is in the process of legalizing hemp, but not because of why you might think. Supposedly the plant will help environmental causes, reducing pesticides, crude oil and other things from the land. The state is also looking at starting a hemp biofuel program. Pardon us for being a little skeptical. Perhaps this is just a way to offer a little relaxation with your beach vacation?
