    The visiting Lady Dragons got off to a quick start, building a 10-0 lead. The Lady Panthers committed five turnovers in the stretch–three from the South Oldham press. Carroll’s first points came from sophomore center Amelia Napier, who was fouled making a move in the post and sank both free throws with 4:27 left in the first quarter.

  • Drought conditions in Kentucky affect cattle’s quality

    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.

  • Traditions help make the holidays special

    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.
