• Monitor heat index for safety of livestock

    The weather has been more than interesting this year, as we have experienced a long winter, practically no spring, and here we are with high 80-degree weather. With the higher temperatures we have experienced and will be experiencing in the coming days, we need to think about how we care for our livestock in high temperatures.

    Livestock become uncomfortable when the heat index reaches about 90 degrees. The heat index is a combination of air temperature and humidity. We use it to describe how it feels outside.

  • Keeton favors gas griddle over gas grill for summer

    ello once again, my friends. Sometime since I last wrote we sprung out of spring and landed smack dab in the middle of summer. The heat and humidity are here and I'm guessing, all the way until fall. But now that the warm weather is here it’s time to get outside and stop heating up the kitchen every time we want to cook something. The best way to do this is to fire up the grill. But what if there was another way beyond the grill? A way to cook anything we wanted and do it outside? Well my friends, I've found that way.
