Karen, Jen, and Kelsey are back with another episode! They discuss time management, and wonder how they are going to get "all the things done" with a new grandbaby, a new puppy, and just simply a busy schedule. The gals talk about their favorite planners and then jump into the Groundhog's prediction....will it really be an early spring? We aren't ready for planting yet! Then, they discuss how they utilize the popular Chat GPT platform. Don't forget to follow GTA on Facebook and X!
Karen and Kelsey share their New Year aspirations, focusing on habit-building rather than resolutions. They also share winter agronomy meetings they'll be attending in January and February, highlighting a mix of in-person, hybrid, and virtual meetings across Illinois and the U.S. They'll also be attending Commodity Classic for the first time in Houston. Let them know if you'll be attending too!
It's been awhile....but the gals are back to give us a harvest update! Karen, Jennifer, and Kelsey also discuss a highly debatable topic of unloading the grain card on the road, when to put up your Christmas decorations, and more. Tune in!
In this episode, the gals dig into the crucial topic of safety and prevention. Jen raises important questions about alternatives to entering the grain bin and how to address safety concerns effectively. Transitioning to crop-specific topics, we discuss fungicide season and the application of ground rigs and aerial spraying. In a lighthearted conclusion, Karen shares her review on the Barbie movie. And we want your input! We are planning future podcast episodes and a series on safety. If you have ideas on what safety topics we are missing or have guest recommendations, please message us on Facebook or Twitter - @GirlsTalkAg.
It's July....so the gals are talking wheat harvest, double-cropping soybeans, county fair season, 4-H projects, and more. Also, we are in search of fulfilling a bucket list item - participating in cotton harvest!
It's June! Summer is basically here with the hot and dry weather in Central Illinois. We are in need of a good rain. Karen and Kelsey discuss crop and field conditions and what their upcoming plans are for June. Listen now!

It's been a busy season for my family and I. I'm taking care of lots of cattle in addition to my full time job. I've not had a lot of time for anything extra this past week as Keri has been out of town and I've had lots of broken down vehicles. I think you can understand that it's been a little bit stressful for me and I've had to completely pause all the extra things in my life I've abstained from social media. I didn't release a podcast this week. I haven't really listened to anything besides church talks and my favorite music to help me turn down the dial on my stress. Whenever we find ourselves in these busy and stressful seasons, it's important to find techniques that help us dial down the stress. I found something that's a little silly and counterintuitive but it absolutely works! What is it? It's simple... I just smile! Whenever I find myself in a negative self talk pattern, I smile.,Every time I smile, It is a reminder that things will turn out ok. It reminds me that I have plenty to be grateful for and that I am beyond blessed.,Now I'm not sure if you're willing to look like a dufus and smile every time an intrusive thought or point of stress pops into your brain. Regardless, I believe everyone should find these turn down techniques to help them get through even their roughest times. I suggest you find that for yourself.
JIll Carr and I have been connected through social media for some time now.
