Officials in Kansas have announced plans for full safety compliance audit at amusement park where 10-year-old boy was killed a couple years ago. A woman was injured at the park last year, but the incident wasn’t made public.

From this week in agribusiness, are you aware of how much productivity has increased in egg laying? Each hen lays 279 eggs per year. Rate of lay is substantially better than it was in the 1980s.

Eagles will prick tiny hole in each egg to allow each egg to breathe. One eaglets are hatched, one will stay with while other hunts for first two weeks. After 10-12 weeks, they will take first flight.
