    Special to The Trimble Banner

    The house shown above was exactly 100 years old when it was torn down and replaced with a U.S. Steel house in 1960. The date of construction was burned into the center gable. Duper Craig of Carrollton saved much of the poplar lumber for his use later on. The leftover debris was then burned.

  • Stockpiling for fall pasture dependent on weather conditions

    Early to mid-August is generally a good time to remove cattle from selected tall fescue pastures and apply 40-100 pounds of nitrogen for stockpiling and later fall grazing. You want to select pastures that have been grazed low or clipped to 3 to 4 inches so stockpiled grass comes from new growth. Well, for most pastures, this isn’t a big problem because we pretty much don’t have any pasture growth due to the lack of rainfall.  Rain last week helped, but we aren’t out of the woods by any stretch of the imagination.
