  • Location strategies for winter feeding of livestock

    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.

  • Strategies for controlling weight: the “plate method”

    Better health through weight control can reduce the risk of developing chronic health problems, including heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and some cancers.

  • 4-H helps youth factor in the costs of pet ownership

    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.

It is a time to start looking objectively so that in January we can implement new resolutions.

    Last week my friend Mike got baptized.

    As the only adult being baptized, he was upstaged by some cute little kids and a baby, but he still shined.
