  • Tips to optimize your stockpiled grass for cows-calves

    Feed, and specifically winter feeding, is the single highest expense in cow-calf production systems. In many cases it can make up more than 50 percent of the total cow-calf budget.

    Traditionally, hay is the main feed that is used during the winter months. Producing hay that is high enough in forage quality to meet the nutritional needs of lactating brood cows can be difficult. Feeding that hay during the cold, wet and muddy winter months can also be a challenge, especially if you work off the farm since it is dark when you leave and dark when you get home.

  • Fort Knox: Golden opportunity for growth
  • Bringing Kentucky priorities to Washington

    During the month of August, I traveled across Kentucky meeting with constituents to hear their concerns, to update them on the Senate’s business and to ask how I can assist them in Washington. I value the time I spend with my fellow Kentuckians, and these conversations at home help me serve my constituents in Washington.

  • Catholics celebrate the birth of the Blessed Mary

    Dear friends, the Catholic Church celebrated the birthday of Blessed Mary on Sept. 8 (Nativity of Bl.Virgin Mary).

    Life magazine estimated that the prayer “Hail Mary” is said 2 billion times every day, and each year, 5-10 million people make a pilgrimage to Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City. Many others visit Marian sites elsewhere in the world. Mary is prayed through as an advocate and helper, and even in the sports area there is a reference to her power: the last desperate pass by a losing football team is called a “Hail Mary pass.”
