  • Years ago, I knew a feisty older woman who loved to say, “There’s nothing like a good smiting.”

    She’d point out how, in the Bible, God was always smiting people – and she had a list of people on her own smite list.

    Don’t we all have people we’d rather smite than forgive?

  • In the United States, more than 17 million bulls from 1-day-old to 1-year-old are castrated yearly. Tetanus is a potentially life-threatening neurologic disease affecting all species of domestic livestock, including cattle, so it’s important for producers to take steps to prevent it.
