  • Does scours get your cattle operation down?

    Every year, I hear producers discuss calf scours in their herds, and every year, those same producers will complain about growth rates of their calves and calf death.
    Scours is defined by neonatal calf diarrhea occurring within the first three weeks of a calf’s life.
    Rotavirus, coronavirus, bacteria (E. coli K99; Clostridium perfringens Type C, Salmonella spp.) and the parasite Cryptosporidia are the most common causes of neonatal calf diarrhea.

  • Let’s talk turkey about food safety

    It’s nearly Thanksgiving, and soon delicious, juicy turkeys will take center stage at many of our holiday meals.
    It’s so important that these birds are properly cooked and prepared, because we don’t want anyone to get sick from a food-borne illness.
    It doesn’t matter whether you purchase a fresh or frozen turkey. The U.S. Department of Agriculture has cooking safety tips for both on its Food Safety and Inspection Service website.

  • A great day for Kentucky and America

    By Governor Matt Bevin

    History was made last Tuesday in both the Commonwealth and the nation. A political outsider won the presidency and did so while ignoring conventional political wisdom regarding campaign tactics. More importantly for the Commonwealth, a seismic political shockwave was felt across our state. 

  • Opinions are like noses, we all have one

    Speaking in absolutes will never benefit anyone.

    Classifying an entire segment of the population based on the thoughts, beliefs, words or actions of a few in that group devalues inherent individual belief systems. We are all individuals to be held accountable for our own actions, but in the end, we are far more alike than we are different.

    Henry County High School Athletic Director Jon Kasten has instituted a new community outreach program for all Wildcat sports teams this year.

    “The idea is to give back to the community because they give us so much,” Kasten said. “Just go up to the football field and see all the help the community has given us. It’s the same with basketball and other sports. So we want to give back.”

    Many of the teams are still in the planning stages for their programs but some of the teams have already helped out.

  • Modern gun deer season under way

    By Kevin Kelley

    Shredded bark on saplings, fresh scrapes along old logging trails and trail camera snapshots of passing bucks are encouraging signs that deer activity is picking up across Kentucky and just in time.

    The statewide modern firearm deer season opened Saturday. Arguably the most widely anticipated of the fall hunting opportunities, it’s structured to coincide with the peak of fall breeding, known as the rut.

  • Questions abound for Cards and Cats fans

    As one unbeaten team after another fell on Saturday, the talking heads began to make excuses as to why the University of Louisville football team should be left out of the college football playoff.

    Some said it was because they had lost to Clemson, therefore Clemson should still be ahead of them.

    None of them ever mentioned the interference call that wasn’t called that prevented another Louisville touchdown that would have helped them beat Clemson.
