  • Do you take your children shopping? This can be the perfect opportunity to help your child develop language skills.

    There are many fun activities to do with younger children at the store to help them with language and reading skills.

    The store is a great place for teaching new words and for introducing your child to new people and places. You can turn the time you have together into a valuable way to teach language skills to your child. Just remember to make it fun and to pick a time when neither you nor your child is hungry or tired.

  • January is an extremely important “checkpoint” in spring heifer-development programs. 

    The key to proper heifer development lies in understanding the factors that influence conception in yearling heifers.

    One key factor regulating heifer fertility is age at puberty. Most producers do not consider age at puberty of their heifers to be a major problem, yet few know how many heifers are actually cyclic at the beginning of the breeding season. 

  • In 2001, a large task force of men and women in the Catholic Church began to be well-trained to educate people in our church about child sexual abuse.

    Once this task force was equipped, all adults who had any contact with children or youth in church programs were required to take the course called “Protecting God’s Children,” to have a background check and to faithfully read a monthly bulletin provided on line about child sexual abuse for as long as their ministry involved children or youth.
