  • As we move into the winter months, we move into the hay feeding period for our livestock.  Regard-less of the livestock species, it is normal to expect hay loss during feeding. However, if hay is stored and fed properly, hay loss can be minimized. 

  • The holiday season is now here, which means good food and festivities. Most of us get busy around the holidays, shopping for gifts, planning parties and visiting family and friends.

    Having a nutritious snack during these busy times helps keep our bodies fueled, supplies essential vitamins and minerals, and prevents us from overeating during main meals.

    Many people think of snacking as an unhealthy habit because when they think of snack food, they think of a candy bar, cookies or a bag of chips.

  • The plan was to stay in Carrollton for five years, then move back to the family farm near Scottsbluff, Neb.

    But plans change, especially when a young man meets a pretty local girl and falls in love.

    That’s what happened to Scott Nab, who came to work at Dow Corning’s Carrollton Plant in January 1992, right after graduating from the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology in Rapid City, S.D.

  • First Baptist Church in Carrollton is again organizing Operation Christmas Child Shoebox locally, as part of the world’s largest Christmas project of it’s kind.

    Organizers say the shoeboxes demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to needy children in 88 different countries, including the Unites States. Last year they were able to reach 92.8 million children around the globe.

  • It is time to start thinking about the colder months ahead. Among of all the things you usually do during the fall, here are a few extra items that you may want to add to your to-do list.

    Winterize your home

    • Clean out gutters and repair any roof leaks.

    • If you have water pipes that run alongside exterior walls, make sure they are insulated so your pipes do not freeze when the weather turns colder.

  • On Monday, we again marked our nation’s reverent observance of Veterans Day; the 87th anniversary of the Armistice ending the carnage of World War I.

    This year, as in years past, our nation finds itself at war. Young men and women, volunteers in the uniform of our armed forces, continue their unbroken legacy of service to our nation; a service conceived during the revolutionary cause of our fore- fathers.

  • Working for the Cooperative Extension Service is a dream job for me.  Each day brings something different and exciting—an insect to identify, a farm to visit, eggs to incubate, or some agricultural “mystery” to solve.

    I was fortunate to know Extension before I ever got this job because I grew up in it, but not all young people thinking about a career in Extension have that type of experience. Therefore, the University of Kentucky Extension Summer Intern Program is just the ticket to get hands-on experience in Extension.
