When Larry and Judith Schad moved to their farm with a two-story log home, they bought goats for their three children to use for 4-H projects. What began as fun, three years later encouraged the family to buy a show herd of Alpine goats, and now that herd and its offspring consistently win awards at the Hoosier Classic and the American Dairy Goat Association national show.

Hurrah for Hickory

A slow-grower, the hickory and does not shag its bark until it produces nuts after about 40 years of age and despite its toughness, it must have pure air to survive, so it is seldom found in large cities. But, in small towns and remaining woods in the mid-west and eastern part of the country, the tree still thrives.
