  • I find Halloween to be a very interesting cultural holiday, though not because of the costumes and candy.

    Trick-or-treating makes complete sense to me. Costumes are fun, candy tastes good…therefore, kids love trick-or-treating — mine included. 

    Instead, what I find interesting about the holiday, is that it truly reveals our fascination with death. It’s a theme that runs through the month of October.

  • Here are some timely tips to think about as cattle producers:

    Spring-calving Herds

    If you have already done a pre-weaning working, revaccinate (booster) calves as needed. Treat calves for internal and external parasites. If vaccinating calves yourself, be sure to store, handle and administer vaccines properly.

    Schedule a pregnancy examination of cows if not done previously. Winter feeding costs can be minimized by eliminating open cows prior to winterfeeding. 

    Wean calves before cows lose body condition.

  • Hello again my friends. I’m looking out the window as I type this month’s article, watching the cool rain stream down the windowpane.

    The calendar says it’s fall, and I must say it now officially feels like it. Cool, wind and leaves changing colors have brought the feeling of what’s to come. While cold and snow might still be on their way, the foods of fall are already here.

  • October meeting of the Caby M. Froman club was held at General Butler State Resort Park. Julia Steelman was the hostess of the day, and all members enjoyed Halloween decorations and treats.
