By Ray Kappel

Local producer Don Bloss recently met with U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue about the world market for sorghum. Sorghum producers were hurt financially when China retaliated for U.S. proposed tariffs with tariffs of its own. On February 4 China imposed an anti-dumping and countervailing duty on sorghum as part of its rebuttal of what President Trump was proposing. The price of sorghum dropped .25 to $1.15 per bushel immediately. The price had recovered some and then came the good news last week:

New Blazin' Bull owners settling in

By Ray Kappel

Things couldn’t have gone better for Josh and Trisha Hemmer, the new owners of the Blazin’ Bull.

They took over April 10 from previous owners Mitch and Kenzie Turnbull. Trisha said the community has been awesome in accepting them and the Turnbulls have been very helpful in the transition. Mitch is coming in Friday, for instance, to help out while the Hemmer’s daughter has her dance recital.

The new place is doing great business under the new owners, like it had under the Turnbulls. The Hemmers couldn’t be happier about the way things have gone.

“We couldn’t have asked for better people to buy it from than Mitch and Kenzie. They have helped us figure out a lot that we didn’t know,” Trisha said. “And the community has been very supportive of us.”
