  • Dr. Roy Burris, UK Beef Extension Specialist, offers timely tips for cattle producers:

    Spring-calving herd

    Dry cows in good condition can use crop residues and lower quality hay now, but do not let them lose any more body condition. Save higher quality feed until calving time. Keep a good mineral supplement with vitamin A available.

    This has been a good year for fall pasture growth. Extend grazing for as long as possible to decrease the amount of stored feed needed.

  • Why is it important for young people to learn about leadership? How does it apply to life?

    Leadership is one of the core areas of focus for the Kentucky 4-H program, and as such, there are a wide variety of activities associated with leadership development in youth, appropriate for youth pre-4-H aged and up.

    The activities involved with leadership development vary greatly, but are all focused on improving the quality aspects of a young leader through reflection, explanation of leadership principle, and personal experiences.

  • Hello once again my friends. I would love to say wow right now. Wow in that we are already at the holiday season. It seems like yesterday that I was writing about summer foods and grilling and light salads. Now we are talking turkey and ham and all the great holiday food traditions. Unfortunately, one of the traditions that seems to come with the holiday is breaking the food budget.
