  • Extension office offers tips on spring calving cows

    The following are tips on spring calving a cow herd:

    Start cows on the high magnesium mineral supplement soon. Consider protein supplementation if hay is less than 10 percent crude protein.  If cows are thin, begin energy (grain) supplementation now. 

    Consider vaccinating the cows to help prevent calf scours.

    Get ready for calving season. See that all equipment and materials are ready, including obstetrical equipment, record forms or booklets, eartags, scales for obtaining birthweights, etc.

  • Backcourt pressure defense leads to Carroll turnovers

    The Lady Panthers struggled against the Gallatin County full-court pressure defense, which prevented them from getting into their offensive sets. The team committed 25 turnovers on the night, losing 68-33 Friday night.

    Carroll County (3-10) fell behind early, 9-2. But following a timeout, they went on an 8-2 run on 3-pointers by Kayla Williamson and Miranda Groseclose and a bucket on the block by Lauren Moore, forcing a Gallatin County timeout with 2:26 left in the first quarter. Gallatin (9-5) matched Carroll with an 8-2 run of their own to end the quarter up 19-12.

    “We told the girls at halftime, right there at the end of the second quarter, we took the lead because of two things: we pressured the ball and we pushed the ball,” head coach Paul Stone said.
