  • Distracted driving, anyone who has been behind the wheel has been guilty of the act.

    Back in the day, it was rubber-necking or as simple activities such as talking to passengers or eating — but today’s drivers face more challenges than ever before with the capability of electronics, specifically a smartphone.

  • A successful breeding season actually begins with management decisions made at calving.

    Cattlemen can impact rebreeding efficiency by focusing on body condition score (BCS), early assistance during calving difficulty, scheduling a breeding soundness exam for the herd sires, planning their herd reproductive health program, and developing a plan to regulate estrus in their first-calf heifers and late-calving cows.  Today, let us focus on the body condition score.

  • Of all the amazing miracles performed during Jesus’ ministry, there is only one that is actually mentioned in all four Gospels; The feeding of the 5,000.  Each gospel writer chose their favorite stories of Jesus from their own perspectives, yet all four chose this one.  To me, that means we as Christians should take a good hard look at it.

  • Hello once again, my friends. As I sit here typing this month’s article I can look out the window and see the melting snow. Only a few days ago it was coming down, covering everything in the soft winter blanket. And yet, as I look out at the shining sun, melting the piles of pushed up snow I can only think about the warmer weather just around the corner.
