Kyle’s News And Reviews

Saturday I finally got the opportunity to plant a few of the food plots that I normally plant. My brother, Adam, drove down from Memphis that morning bringing the seed and we were able to get them spread before the rain set in Saturday evening. I normally try to bushog my winter plots down a couple of weeks before I want to plant and then disk a few times before I am ready to plant.  

This year I was not able to disk before the day of planting, so I tried a new method of burning the bushogged stubble in the plots first. This method worked good on the first plot but with the rain, I wasn’t able to do it on the rest of the plots so I just had to disk over them about five or six times to be able to plant.

Most years I just plant wheat but this year, since my brother was buying, I decided to mix it up a little bit and plant oats, jumbo ryegrass, wheat, rape, turnips, collards, and clover.  I guess if I am not able to harvest a deer I will still be able to eat some greens.

Last Thursday night Dr. Nancy Jackson talked to our county’s Cattleman Association about the Mississippi Cattleman’s Association.  Dr. Jackson is a large animal veterinarian and serves as president of the Mississippi Cattleman’s Association.

On top of all of that, she is married to Extension Director (my boss man) Dr. Gary Jackson from Water Valley, who decided to let me know at 4:30 Thursday afternoon that he would be coming to our meeting.  I am glad that he came to the meeting, it is always a little more stressful on a person when their bosses are around, but I am sure the meeting helped him as well by getting see old friends and family.

Last week was the Coffeeville school systems homecoming week and my parents, William and Bettie Jeffreys, were chosen as the Grand Marshals of the parade and ceremony.  I had to miss the actual parade but my wife was able to video it so I could watch it later.

My father, William Jeffreys is a 1970 graduate of Coffeeville High School, and has lived and worked in Coffeeville all of his life.  My mother is a 1972 graduate of Lafayette High School and worked as a school teacher in the Coffeeville schools for over 31 years.

I personally don’t know of very many people that have given back to this community as much as my parents.  On a side note they were part of the homecoming festivities on Friday night and I asked my oldest son if he wanted to go with them to the game, his response was “heck yeah I don’t want to miss my chance at fame.”

The Yalobusha County Forestry Association will host their fourth quarterly meeting on October 4 at the Multi-purpose Building in Coffeeville at 6 p.m.  The topic will be choosing a Forestry Consultant with Dr. Brady Self as the speaker.  There will be a meal provided for this meeting and all non-members are asked to pay a $10 fee to cover the meal.
