  • Conserve and plan for winter hay needs

    Hay availability in Henry County and Kentucky may be short this winter because of weather events—last year’s drought, this year’s early record rainfall, and this year’s summer drought—both hay quality and yield are down.  Some effort at conservation and planning will help make hay last longer through the winter.

    Store hay inside a barn or other structure where it will remain dry.  Hay testing is the first step to knowing how much will be necessary to meet the nutritional needs of the animals to be fed, from horses to cattle to goats.

  • 4-H gearing up for new school year

    This month I will be visiting all of the fourth and fifth grades in the county telling students about the 4-H program in Henry County.  For those of you who may not be aware of the program I thought I would share a little about it.
    The 4-H Club has been going strong for more than 100 years throughout the country.  We are part of the Henry County Cooperative Extension program that serves as a branch of the College of Agriculture at the University of Kentucky.  

  • Second Wind Dreams: Making others happy

    Submitted by Sue Barnett
    There is a song with lyrics that say, “If I can make someone happy as I travel on, then my life would not be in vain.”
    That is what Second Wind Dreams is all about. Our goal has been in the past to grant wishes and dreams to the residents at Homestead Nursing Home in New Castle. We’ve made their lives happier in many ways. Our dreams that have been granted in 2011 are:
    1. A Valentine party with music and decorations by the New Castle United Methodist women.
