  • As we approach our Primary now, with our final election in November that’s just around the corner, I wanted to look at the election with a Godly approach.

    The Democracy that was set up by our God led our forefathers to put into place a process called an election, electing peoplewho could represent us as a body in God-given places to serve God and to do what is best for our nation, our states, our counties, our cities, and, even our towns, as elected officials.

  • Last week, state tourism leaders unveiled the latest annual study on the positive impact this industry has in Kentucky.  In a word, the news was good.

  • Dr. Roy Burris, UK Beef Extension Specialist, offers timely tips for cattle producers:

    Spring-calving herd

    Continue supplying a high magnesium mineral until daytime temperatures are consistently above 60 degrees F.

    Improve or maintain body condition (BCS 5) of cows before breeding season starts, if necessary.

    Bulls should have a breeding soundness evaluation (BSE) well before the breeding season. They should also receive their annual booster vaccinations and be dewormed.
