    The Public Service Commission has ordered Louisville Gas and Electric Company to delay completion of its Trimble County plant until at least 1991. In an order signed this week, the Commission said the evidence presented in the case supported the delay for three reasons: ample generating capacity already exists in Kentucky; LG&E failed to demonstrate its ability to successfully market any excess power from the Trimble County unit; and the PSC needs more time to pursue statewide power planning options.

  • With winter just around the corner, hopefully you have secured sufficient hay supplies for your winter feeding needs. How do you estimate the amount of hay you will need? If you have mature horses at maintenance level, you would want to feed a mainly forage diet.
    The estimate would be similar to a 1,100-pound horse eating 2 percent of its body weight. That equals 22 pounds of hay per day. Feeding for 120 days, December through March would equal 1.3 tons of hay per horse according to Bob Coleman, University of Kentucky Extension Equine Specialist.
