You'll Like This New Calender
"It holds our farm history," says Ken McKee, Emerson, Iowa about the farm calendar and record keeper that he designed and has used on his own farm for several years and which he now prints and sells.
You can see all 12 months at a glance on the calendar so it's easy to plan ahead or look back to see how you've done.
"I record the date we begin planting and the date of completion. When we sell cattle, I make a notation of the date and include the price. I note the date corn is sold and the price per bushel. We note the amount of rain-fall and the first snowfall of the year as well as the general weather conditions. At year end, we can look back for a capsule summary of the year's farming events," says McKee.
The calendar is made from high quality poster paper that can be written on with any writing tool. It measures 23 by 35 in. and is light brown in color. McKee keeps one in his shop. His wife keeps another in the house for recording school and social events as well as medical appointments.
"At year's end we just tack the new calendar over the old one. Whenever we need or want to, we can look back to previous years to compare current conditions to past conditions," says McKee.
The 1984 Calendar sells for $4.95 plus $1.50 for shipping.
