Make a Plan for Hurricane Season Now!

A special note from Adam Putnam: It’s barely been a week since the start of the 2016 hurricane season, and Florida has already experienced severe weather.

I urge Floridians to prepare for the remainder of the 2016 hurricane season

On February 6, and what felt like the coldest day of the month, I participated with friends on Team-“Let’s Get Dirty”, fueled by Beef, at the Warrior Dash, a 5k obstacle race in Clermont. We had a great time and all the participants that we passed saw that our team was BEEFfit. The Cattlewomen stayed busy in the booth in the Agriculture Hall of Fame/Fresh
