  • A few weeks back I wrote about “What’s making me happy,” which got a great response from people.

    Some sent emails or stopped me in the market to tell me what’s making them happy. Seems everyone was riding the happiness train.

    But then someone pointed out that God never promised us happiness and that those who pursue it never obtain it.

    There’s always a buzz kill in every crowd.

    Still, the person had a good point and one worth exploring.

  • Being a buyer at North American Stainless wasn’t Kassie Winburn’s first career choice.

    The 2000 Carroll County High School graduate had planned on a career in human resources after earning a degree in that field from Northern Kentucky University.

    “It’s not what I saw myself doing,” she admits, but adds, “I love it.”

    An added perk is the chance to work at the same place as her mom, Connie Aaron, and her husband, John Winburn, who works in the melt shop and has been with the steel manufacturer 11 years.

  • With the warmer weather upon us, we need to take a closer look at pests that can be bothersome to our cattle. 

    Horn flies and face flies are two of those pests.

    Both species breed in fresh pasture manure piles but present very different threats and management problems.  Fortunately, there are a variety of fly control options.
