    Electric Cars

    Question: Here in Minnesota it can get down to -40F. How do they work at that temp? As a rule of thumb chemically speaking reactions slow down 50% for each 18 degrees fahrinheit, if I remember correctly. I am curious is there a chart relating temperature to range etc.?

    Cow numbers

    I know we have producers from across the nation here. Curious if we are seeing a reduction in cow numbers due to drought. In my area of Minnesota we had very dry conditions early but that has changed. Also wondering if producers relocate cows for awhile or not. thanks farmguy

My wife refused to eat any but the son's family and friend,s family had no problems, cheap meat as the gelding was free. Also had a relative...
