    An excellent overview of the University of Kentucky’s Cooperative Extension Service (CES) was shared by newly appointed District 3 Director Willie Howard to Bedford Rotary on February 14.

  • This Friday I will be embarking upon my first plane ride. I have been on a helicopter but the chopper had the good sense to remain within eyeshot of the ground. The jetliner will be unwilling to show this courtesy. I will be in the big leagues.

  • Many producers have already started planning pasture and hayfield fertilization. Pastures require nutrients to reach peak productivity. These nutrients are derived from several sources including residual nutrients in the soil, the breakdown of manure and soil organic matter, and nitrogen produced by N-fixation in leg-umes. Most importantly, nutrients are supplied to plants through the application of commercial fertilizer and lime.
