  • The first in a series of four pasture walks hosted by the Eden Shale Grazing Network Initiative will take place June 2 from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Eden Shale Research Farm in Owenton.

    The grazing network, overseen by a committee of forage experts, is designed for participants who have an interest in managing their forages and pastures for improved profitability. The walks provide an opportunity to see how others manage their forages, pastures and livestock while providing a chance to critique and question the operator.

  • Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack will unveil a new food icon Thursday, June 2 that will serve as a reminder for consumers to make healthier food choices.

For many years, the house did not have modern plumbing or electricity; all the water came from the well outside the front door. The water was unusually clear and cool, and the well never ran dry, even during the hottest summers when other families had to haul water from a nearby lake.
