Today's Features

  • Late fall and early winter is an optimum time to prepare spring-calving beef herds for reproductive success. Adequate nutrition from about 50 to 80 days prior to calving is critical to maximizing a cow’s ability to rebreed and maintain a 365-day calving interval. If a cow gets inadequate nutrition or is thin at calving and breeding, she will take longer to come into heat and will require more services to conceive.

  • The Farmers Market season closed last Thursday with Pat Durham of Durham Beef grilling locally raised beef. Durham set up three times over the course of the summer at the roadside stand adjacent to the LaRue County Extension Service. Ten vendors paid the season-long $15 fee to set up fresh produce and other locally produced farm products throughout the season. Others paid $10 for each single set up.  The Extension Service reinvests all the fees into the Farmers Market in the form of advertising, signage and related expenses.

  • Jenee Burd of Hodgenville recently opened Kid’s Consignments just off the square in Hodgenville.

    Burd, the daughter of Pat and Linda Burd of Hodgenville, said her mom’s store, Lincoln Square Consignments had so many items that it was hard to find anything. So they found a store and moved all the children’s items to the new location. They are taking winter consignments on a 50/50 basis and pay customers on the first of each month.

    Just in time for Halloween, the store has a supply of costumes.
