  • Winter hay supplies are expected to be short this year due to the extended drought. However, we did receive almost 2 inches of rain this past weekend that will go a long way in kick starting our pastures.  Right now is a good time to estimate the amount of hay you have on hand to see if you have sufficient supplies to meet your winter feeding needs. If you are going to be short, additional hay or feeds will need to be secured or you will have to cull animals from your herd.

  • Fall—just the thought of it brings visions of colorful leaves, cooler temperatures and wonderful Kentucky fall foods, such as sweet potatoes and apples.  Not only are these foods delicious, but they are jam-packed with nutrients.

    Apples and sweet potatoes are two of nature’s great nutritional gifts, and even the wrapping is edible.  They are low in calories, fat, and sodium.
