  • Book provides pastor with needed ‘jolt’ to his faith

    I have a confession. My walk with Christ received a much-needed jolt this week. This divinely-guided jolt arrived in the form of a book I purchased a few days after Christmas. 

    The book was about global missions, persecuted Christians, human suffering, doubt and the triumph of our crucified yet resurrected Lord. Sound interesting?  If your faith needs a jolt, then this book is for you.

  • Start planning for best spring calving cow herd

    Study the performance of last year’s calf crop and plan for improvement. Plan your breeding program and consider a better herd sire(s).  Select herd sires which will allow you to meet your goals and be willing to pay for superior animals. 

    Consider vaccinating the cows to help prevent calf scours.

    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.

  • Library looks ahead to 2013

    Now that 2012 has come to a close, I have been looking forward to 2013. I am just now getting accustomed to saying “twenty twelve,” and it seems to have happened just as a matter of course.  I didn’t say “twenty oh nine,” or even “twenty eleven.” But for some reason, “twenty twelve” was the tipping point. So naturally that will carry over into “twenty thirteen.”
