  • Every year, cow-calf producers need to critically evaluate each animal in the herd for production. There are several factors that play into deciding which cows to cull.

    Open cows (those that are not pregnant) at the end of breeding season are the top of the cull list. Other variables in developing a culling order include structural soundness, body condition score, age, performance, and disposition. Developing a culling order is important during times of drought, a year with marginal hay production, or when managing through a difficult season.

  • Children love Halloween! They get to dress up and get free candy. What a perfect holiday!

    Give your children some precious Halloween memories that they’ll have for life. Trick or Treating isn’t what it used to be.

    It’s not as safe to let children walk the streets alone. Send a responsible adult or older teenager with them. Have a pumpkin carving party for your children and their friends a couple nights before Halloween. They’ll enjoy looking at their creations for a few days before the pumpkins need to be thrown out.
