  • According to Dr. Jeff Lehmkuhler, the impacts of the fall drought conditions can be seen in some of the cow herds across the state. Cows are lower in body condition as a result of the grass shortage.

    Fall vegetative fescue grass will often be in the low 60’s on Total Digestible Nutrients (TDN) and mid-teens for crude protein, much higher in quality than our average hay. The lack of this fall forage growth will necessitate some early intervention.

  • My husband and I were watching television one night in late October when we saw our first Christmas commercial. Hershey’s decided to break tradition by running their famous bell ringing kisses commercial before Halloween! They wanted to be the first to remind us Christmas was on the way.

Promptly at 12:01 a.m., on Nov. 1st, it transitioned into the holiday season of pumpkin spice everything, Christmas Carols and Hallmark Channel movies.
