cattle drives
Cattle Drives

Between 1866-1886, 20 million cattle were herded to railheads in Kansas. Cattle drives are the movement of cattle from one place to another. The developments of railheads lead to “Cow Towns” across America. Cattle drives were most popular in June 1867. Towns like Wichita, Dodge City, and Abilene grew overnight. Cattle drives still happen in the American West and in Australia to this day.

crops
Crops

Did you know that Kansas is a producer for many different crops? Corn was so valuable that the early settlers used corn to trade with the Native Americans. Also, more than 80% of the crops grown in Kansas are fed to livestock. Kansas is the biggest producer of wheat. Plus, Kansas is usually the top state in the producer of both wheat and grain sorghum.

family farming vs corporate farming
Family Farming vs. Corporate Farming

Family farming is different in many ways when compared to corporate farming. It’s also similar, but only in one way. They both sell foods. Corporate farming is a big farm that provides seeds, agrichemicals, machinery, fruits and vegetables. Cooperate farms also carry out food processing, transporting crops, and distribution. Family farming is passed down from generations. They are very small and are becoming more scarce. Family farming doesn’t make as much money. Corporate farming is contracted.

farming methods and practices
Farming Methods and Practices

The methods of farming are the way farmers plow, plant, and harvest. The early plows were called an ard. The heavy plow was made around 1000 A.D. Later, metal was added to it. The heavy plow had two problems. One was dirt got stuck on it and had to be cleaned by hand. The other problem was the system did not work in the dense grasses of the plains.

Early seed planting methods were also replaced by machinery. People used to just throw the seed on the soil. But, when the seed drill was made, it made weeding and harvesting easier. There are many methods and practices of farming.

homesteading
Homesteading

Homesteading was important to the westward expansion and the habitation of the Kansas plains. The Homestead Act was an act that granted people the right to own 160 acres of land if they improved it. The first homestead was in 1870. The Felton family was one of the first families to acquire a homestead. People mostly lived in sod houses or dugouts on the land. The Homestead Act was one of the most important things that lead to people living in Kansas.

implements and machinery
Implements and Machinery

The main machinery used in Kansas is the combine. The first combine was invented in 1838 by Hiran Moore. It was pulled by 16 or more horses. Later they were pulled by a steam engine, which was invented by George Stockton Berry. The combine could cut and thresh over 100 acres a day. Modern combines have much more to them than they used to; full stereo systems, comfortable seats, and full air-conditioning. Over all, combines have grown more sufficient over the years.

kansas soil
Kansas Soil

  Kansas soil is so good that it attracted farmers and kept getting more and more of them. There are about 300 different soils that have been identified in Kansas. Harney Silt Loam is the Kansas state soil. There are 16 different types of loams in the loam family. About 190 million tons of topsoil, is degraded each year because of human activities. It’s amazing that people identify all of the different kinds of soil.

livestock
Livestock

Livestock is important to the agricultural community in Kansas. The use of livestock has changed dramatically over the past 150 years. Cattle are important because they provide meat. Dairy cows are important because they provide milk, butter, and cream. Livestock are important to farmers. Livestock provides food for merchants to sell and buy. Livestock also provide food for the farmer’s family.

Organic farming uses methods such as crop rotation, green manure, and biological pest control. Organic farming produces corn, wheat, soybeans, oats, sunflowers, alfalfa, clover, edible beans, blue corn, popcorn, spelt, and buck weed. There are more regular farmers than organic farmers, even though it is better for the earth.

the history of agriculture
The History of Agriculture

The earliest settlers in Kansas were gardeners and hunters. They used buffalo bones as tools for farming. Corn, beans, squash, pumpkins, and sunflowers were grown, harvested, and stored into underground pits. Mennonite settlers from Russia came to Kansas to grow wheat in a prairie climate. They found out Kansas was the perfect place. They told other farmers to farm nearby. Therefore, this started the wheat state tradition. In 1874, the grasshopper plague broke out. During that time there was a drought. This declined the growth of corn. In Kansas, there was a plague, a drought, and a wheat growing miracle.

roscoe arbuckle
Roscoe Arbuckle

Kansas is very lucky to have Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle as an important person. He was famous for his movies, comedy, and jokes. Roscoe was an acrobat for some time even though he was a little big, he was agile. Roscoe was a singer. When he got on stage, everyone thought, that he could not sing. He just sang his heart out. The audience was surprised about how well he sang. Roscoe never used his weight for laughs. He used it by proving them wrong and not being bothered by them. Even though, Roscoe was teased about his weight, he was never mean in return. He just simply smiled and walked away, knowing he can do anything, he set his mind to. That is a lesson we can all learn from him.

That is because Kansas was trying to become a state for four years. In the end, Kansas became a non-slavery state.
