Need a mentor to coach me on corn farming techniques

Good morning,

My name is Henry and I am a Texas A&M Alumni. This year I have taken a challenge to produce corn and increase food security for a village in Cameroon, Africa . Corn farming there has been with hand for generations, and yields are not high enough to feed farmers and their families.
Thus, I organized a farm in that village and I equipped the farm with machinery and farming tools to get boost production and make an impact. I am really struggling to produce as planned, mostly because I have no field experience growing corn in a mechanized fashion. I need someone with farming experienced who can coach me for time to time and i can talk to discuss about farming methods and others.

Thank you for your time and I am looking forward to connect with someone who can help with this

Animal droppings on my lawn

Almost every morning I notice animal droppings on my lawn, around the same area, between the garage and the fence we share with our neighbors. They are of a dark Color, almost black. Also, a couple of times now, I would see a heap of dead grass, in the middle of the backyard, covering droppings which are lighter in color!! As if the animal wanted to cover its dropping!! We have a rather large backyard, with only 2 trees and some shrubs on the side. We have no pets and neither any of our surrounding neighbors. There are a lot of squirrels in our subdivision, and man made lakes. Please help me identify these droppings. So far I have not seen any damage to the lawn, just the annoying sight of the droppings!! Thank you for your help.

Contaminated Horse Feed

Hey is there anyway to test horses feed if it's contaminated? It's making my horses sick and choke whenever they eat it and they've never had this issue before. Opened a new bag and they all got sick within 5 mins of eating it.

I've heard of naturally colored cotton. It was green, blue, and a rusty red color. Do you know where I can get a few seeds? I just want a couple of each. I live in a subdivision in Tomball, Texas, and have a small garden across the back fence.
