(Courtesy Photo) For years, the kitchen table has been the center of planning for those in agriculture. Conversations of the past, pres- ent and future surface around the table. Today, the kitchen table may be in the warming shed, the barn, the seed-cleaning facility, the shop or an available room slightly wanner than outside.. In some cases, a meeting room, built to accommo- date the input and planning for' today's agricultural enterprises, is the designated center. The point is, time must be set aside to develop a plan, which can be implemented successfully by in- cluding individual opinions of those involved in the operation. Individ- ual input is critical. Without such input, the operation eventually could be dispersed or, at best, the working environment deteriorates, employee turnover goes up and hard feelings develop. All of these scenarios can be pre- vented with a good session around the kitchen table. The Dickinson Research Extension Center is no different. As spring nears, the cen- ter personnel, like producers, initi- ate summer planning. This is not a time of rest. Cows start calving, equipment needs servicing and seed needs to be fetched, pushing winter Golden Valley Manor Benefit Spaghetti Supper &Pie/Craft Auction Sunday, February 26 5 - 7 p.m. Auction at 6 p.m. Free-will donation for the supper All donations of pies and crafts to be auctioned are gladly accepted, just bring them to the Manor.

The center personnel, as well as the numerous agricultural producers around the area, must sit down around the table because the tinie for decisions is now. HOW are we going to get through another pro- duction year with pounds of calves or bushels of grain to pay the bills? Like many agricultural opera- tions today, various production units are not contingent on each other; in fact, 10 to 20 miles may separate the various units, thus the need to plan the movement of equipment, live- stock and the many other pieces needed for farming and ranching.. The other day, while walking around the shop, I ponderedhow many wrenches, nuts, bolts, various chains, wire, metal pieces and other assorted hardware are needed to run a farm or ranch.
