    Spring is coming slowly this year, the ground has a layer of frost again this morning. But that hasn't stopped the prairie chickens from their spring rituals.  

   This Sunday I will be giving a presentation about Prairie Chickens and Grassland Management for "Ag Day" held at south Wood County Recreation Center, 2711 16th St. Wisconsin Rapids, sponsored by Lincoln High School Ag Department.  If you are in the area, please stop by, the event goes from 8:30 am to 3 pm.  Carl Flaig

Spring is coming to our pasture grasslands, as many as 25 male prairie chickens have been seen on the booming grounds.  Most of the snow is now gone, highs have been in the 50's.  Sandhill cranes, killdeer and harriers are now a common site.  A few calves have been born, but the majority will come this year in June.  Even the hens are excited about the spring and giving us 5 dozen eggs a day.  Carl & Carol Flaig
