Life is full of obstacles that test our faith. Our careers, our relationships, our financial situations; maybe it’s our friends or our kids, or even just general disappointment at unmet expectations. And sometimes, it’s something so much more.

Scott Berget grew up in Wiota, WI, where he farmed on Berget family farms and silver creek family farms, where he was a co-owner. To Scott, family was everything, and he had amazing relationships with his Mom, Judy, his dad Mike, and his siblings, but his favorite people on this earth were his nieces and nephews.

Happy New Year! It’s hard to believe it’s 2022, and we’re featuring our SEVENTH episode of the Across the Acres podcast. Launched in August of 2021, Across the Acres is hosted by Carlye Frye (Delta Region Training Innovation Manager) and David Ringger (Central Region Training Innovation Manager). Each month, they introduce a member of the Beck family of employees, dealers, and farmers across our marketing territory and provide a platform to share stories about their careers, families, and their faith.
Farming is a family business, one full of opportunities but also of challenges and hardships. Families work together, thrive together, succeed together. And when tough times come, they come for the whole family.

If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.
I used the same proverb to introduce my December 2020 CropTalk feature article – If You Give a Man a Fish. In it, I detailed the selfless work of Kenton and Autumn Hofer from Bridgewater, South Dakota, and their tireless efforts with Growing Hope Globally. Growing Hope is an agricultural-based organization dedicated to providing training on sustainable agriculture, nutrition, hygiene and sanitation, access to water, seeds, and land to people in need around the world.

If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime. That’s how the proverb goes. And while the age-old adage has been claimed by many cultures over the years, it’s not really who said it that matters but rather, what was said.
For Kenton and Autumn Hofer from Bridgewater, South Dakota, it’s a belief they stand behind and commit themselves to fulfilling.

Primary methods of controlling soybean threats in fi elds used to be fairly straight forward. Start with the most resistant variety available, and then apply your fungicides and insecticides in a timely manner. Rotating with corn or other non-host crops was always an added management practice many farmers considered. However, there is a trifecta of threats to soybean crops that are increasing in severity and causing drastic economic losses in fields throughout the Midwest.
