  • 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.

    Our country is facing a debt crisis.  The federal government currently borrows 40 cents of every dollar it spends.  This year the government will spend $1.5 trillion more than it takes in, adding to a national debt that is already more than $14.3 trillion, two and a half times the size it was just a decade ago in 2001.

  • COLUMN: Kentucky is the heart of the nation in many ways
