  • Here are a few tips from the UK Beef Cattle group for management of the beef herd at this time of year. 
    For spring calvers, body condition is important, so plan an adequate winter program for cows to be at least body condition score 5 (carrying enough flesh to cover the ribs) before the calving and breeding season.  This will help them to breed early in the spring.  Thin cows should be fed to regain body condition prior to winter.

  • We just celebrated the Thanksgiving season, and I’ve heard many folks talking about the good visits they had with family and friends.  Personally, that’s what I’m most thankful for.  Here in Henry County, we were thankful for the abundant rains which fell last Wednesday and Thursday.  More on that rain in a moment.

  • It’s pretty easy to gain 5-10 pounds from Thanksgiving through New Year’s. Big holiday meals, parties and open houses, and candies, cookies and rolls are more available at home, work and school. All promote weight gain, and pair that with less time for exercise... well, you see the problem.

  • Underage drinking plagues our communities with property damage, an increase in crime, personal injury, and even death. The youth who engage in underage drinking generally do not set out to create mayhem. They believe drinking just means a good time. They don’t’ think about the future or fully understand the chance of negative consequences with their actions.

    Every winter, many Henry Countians utilize firewood for heating, sometimes for supplemental heat and sometimes for the primary heat source.  When buying firewood two factors will determine just how hot your fire is — seasoning and the kind of wood.

    Wood is made up of air and cellulose (wood fiber). The more air space that wood has, the less there is to burn. Buying wood with the heaviest/most dense per unit volume will keep you toasty.
