  • As we move closer to cold weather, it is a good time for Trimble county cattle producers to think about strategies for winter feeding of livestock, since it is a necessary part of nearly all operations.

    Choosing the right place for winter feeding can improve production and reduce threats to nearby water resources. A poorly chosen site for winter feeding can have negative impacts on soil and water quality according to Steve Higgins, UK Extension Director of Environmental Compliance.

  • Better health through weight control can reduce the risk of developing chronic health problems, including heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and some cancers. One strategy for weight control is to use the “plate method,” which is a food-awareness tool that helps change habits and attitudes toward food and eating.

    The plate method helps you to:

    •Make healthy choices

    •Eat more high fiber foods

    •Control carbs

  • Owning a pet is a valuable and rewarding experience for youth. However, youth and parents should understand both the financial cost and commitment required for different animals. Before acquiring a pet, you should thoroughly consider the demands of owning different pets to be sure your choice will fit in with your family’s lifestyle and budget realistically and without undue hardship. A fish fits neatly on a counter top; a Great Dane needs a big yard.
