  • How dry was July?

  • Give infants and toddlers a good start

    Recent findings indicate that even infants and toddlers are now at risk for becoming obese. Current national figures for infants and toddlers show that one in 10 is overweight, and more than 20 percent of children between the ages 2 and 5 are already overweight or obese.

    Early obesity can lead to adult overweight or obesity and the chronic diseases that stem from weight management issues. Reversing this alarming trend is critical for parents or care-givers to ensure health for children as they grow up. Recommendations include the following:

  • Cattle and hot weather

    As I write this article on Monday, the heat and humidity are both high, making things uncomfortable.  Remember it makes things uncomfortable for all our livestock, also.  A couple of the  most important considerations are certainly water and shade.  Be sure that clean water is always available, especially in hot weather.  Make routine checks of the water supply.  Cattle need 13 to 20 gallons of clean water in hot weather.

  • Come on out and have breakfast with us!

  • Music, food and fun on 7/30

  • Record setting weather

    According to preliminary data, the past three months in Kentucky were the wettest April, May and June on record (117 years), with 24.21 inches for the state, after three out of the past four years suffered serious periods of drought in Kentucky.  Our group of weather reporters in Henry County have captured a whopping amount of rain which collaborates the state numbers.  Reports range from a low of 25.72 inches near Campbellsburg to a high of 29.19 inches near Eminence.

  • Men: Control your diabetes for life and family

  • Timely tips for cattle producers

    Over the past couple of weeks as we got some dry conditions, a tremendous amount of grass based hay was cut and baled. Remember to get a forage analysis with KDA by contacting them at 1-800-248-2648. 
    With the regular cow herd, keep a good pasture mineral mix available at all times.  Observe the cows and bulls as the breeding season continues! 

  • Ol’ fashioned hankies and buttons at Twin Oaks
