  • Along with the joys of summertime outdoor activities comes the not-so-joyful likelihood of encountering mosquitoes.

  • Revelation 10:1-7 discusses the mighty angel with the little book. The seven thunders uttered their voices, I was about to write; but I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, seal up the things which the seven thunders uttered and do not write them.

    In these verses, the seven thunders are not revealed.

    Revelation 10:8-11: John eats the little book.

  • Problems come to everyone. The Apostle Peter said, “Don’t be surprised when you have problems.” Jesus said, “In this world you will have tribulation.” We don’t know when they may come. For example, you don’t plan a flat tire. Trials come in all shapes and sizes.

  • Having proper handling facilities, understanding animal behavior and following safe handling techniques can make the chore of moving cattle less stressful for the animal and producer.

    When moving cattle, the position and movement of the handler is important.

    Cattle have a flight zone – the area around them that they do not like for people to enter.

    The size of this zone varies from animal to animal. The animal will move away when a person enters this zone and that trait can be used to move them where you want them to go.

  • In an effort to support local food production, the Environmental Finance Center at the University of Louisville has launched Kentucky Food Trader (www.kyfoodtrader.org), a virtual farmers’ market that connects both buyers and sellers with local food as soon as it is harvested.
