  • Gun safety from Eddie the Eagle
  • Emerald Ash Borer has reached county

    The presence of the Emerald Ash Borer, a serious invasive pest of ash trees, has been confirmed in Carroll County.

    The Emerald Ash Borer can attack all species of ash in landscapes, forests and woodlots. The insect will attack stressed and healthy trees greater than about 1.5 inches in diameter.

  • Doggone fun
  • Horn, face fly control can increase farm’s cattle yield

    With the warmer weather upon us, we need to take a closer look at pests that can be bothersome to our cattle. 

    Horn flies and face flies are two of those pests.

    Both species breed in fresh pasture manure piles but present very different threats and management problems.  Fortunately, there are a variety of fly control options.

  • More than 100 attend sewing expo held in Carrollton

  • Proper grazing techniques keep horses healthy, happy

    With pastures greening up well across the county, it is time to start planning ahead of summer pasture needs for your horses.

    Pasture provides a significant percentage of horses’ nutrient needs. Al- though horses have more grass than they can consume in the spring when moisture is adequate, the hot, dry conditions of summer greatly reduce available pasture.  Good management is the key to getting through this growth slump.
