  • To ensure that foodborne illness isn’t a guest at your holiday table, follow these tips from USDA when buying and preparing your turkey.
    When buying a turkey, allow one pound per person. If you buy a fresh turkey, check the “sell by” or “use by” date to make sure that it really is fresh, and buy it only 1 or 2 days before you cook it.

  • Early winter is an optimum time to prepare your spring-calving herd for reproductive success. Adequate nutrition from about 50 to 80 days prior to calving is critical to maximizing a cow’s ability to rebreed and maintain a 365-day calving interval according to Les Anderson, University of Kentucky Extension Beef specialist. A cow that gets inadequate nutrition or is thin at calving and breeding will take longer to come into heat and will require more services to conceive.
