  • I love Springtime! With the weather being so nice over the last few days, it has gotten me to thinking about getting things cleaned up and straightened up. Yep, it’s time to clean out the garage and bring things back up out of the basement and get ready for some fun and sun-filled days. I love springtime! Got to get the lawn mower serviced and ready to go. Won’t be long until the grass will need to be cut. And then you have those ladies who put a very strong emphasis on spring cleaning in and around the house.

  • Many of us are planning to take part in more outdoor recreational activities as the weather continues to warm up.  Remember that spending unprotected time in the sun increases your risk for skin cancer, the most common cancer in the United States.

  • Despite the rain this week, the warm temperatures have finally reached the county, and pastures are really starting to green up.

    As it is certainly nice to see that green arrive, now is also a time when livestock producers need to watch out for grass tetany, also called spring tetany or grass staggers.  It can also be referred to as wheat pasture poisoning, winter tetany or lactation tetany.

    Regardless of name, it is a condition caused by an abnormally low level of magnesium in the blood of livestock.
