  • Slow down and put the kettle on

    It was a seemingly innocuous comment. “I bought one of those Hot Pots,” a friend said. “I got tired of waiting for the tea kettle to boil water.”

    It was a sign of many things, not the least of which is how my friend and I have changed, or how our ways have parted, in the last 10 years.

    Waiting for a tea kettle to boil is among my favorite things in the morning.

    It’s hard to know which is more uncomfortable - preparing for a colonoscopy or talking to the doctor about why you think you need one.

    General opinion holds that the procedure itself is the easiest part - owing to the likelihood of extreme sedation.

  • 2011 food guidelines and the role of 4-H

    The newly released food guidelines from the U.S. Department of Agriculture indicate a major shift in the recommendations that the agency is making for Americans. An increasing percentage of the population suffers from overweight, poor diet, obesity, forms of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and other serious illnesses. The USDA’s revised guidelines are meant to raise awareness of the inherent risks in prevalent American lifestyle choices, characterized by an over-consumption of non-nutrient-dense highly processed foods and a sedentary lifestyle.

  • Prevent pasture bloat

     Spring brings with it a couple of big changes in a cow’s life.  Most of our momma cows have their calves in the spring and their need for high quality feed goes up greatly.  Luckily, this increased need happens at the same time our vast amount of cool season forages are growing rapidly after their winters nap.  However, there are a couple of potential forage related problems associated with early growth that we as animal caregivers need to be aware of and watch out for.  Grass Tetany and Bloat are the problems.
