This past week saw the 150th anniversary of the signing of the Morrell Act--a groundbreaking piece of legislation that established land grand universities. This meant that for the first time, average people and not just the privileged elite could attend college. Sunup's Dave Deken looks into the impact the act had on agriculture in the state--including a particular wheat experiment that's over a hundred years old, and still going--and growing--strong.

Wild turkeys were abundant in Franklin’s day, but did you know at one point in our history turkeys were almost extinct?
