  • Red Cross urges blood, platelet donations during National Preparedness Month

    The American Red Cross urges eligible donors to give blood and platelets this fall to help restock the shelves following a significant summer shortage to ensure an adequate blood supply for patients in need.

    Through the first two weeks of September, the Red Cross is down more than 10,000 donations from what is needed to replenish the blood supply and be prepared for emergencies large and small. Declines in donations can lead to blood shortages and make it difficult to meet patient needs should a disaster or emergency occur.

  • Keeping up with Medicare changes

  • Fall is the time to check farm soil pH and apply lime

    Today is the Autumnal Equinox—the first day of fall, which means it is the optimum time to take soil samples for fertility analyses.

    Fall sampling allows for plenty of time to follow fertility recommendations before planting season. Upon receiving the soil test results, look at the recommendations for lime and pH, a measure of soil acidity that affects plants’ uptake of all nutrients. If the soil pH is too low, it decreases the uptake of essential nutrients, and elements such as aluminum and manganese can become toxic to growing plant roots.
