  • USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service is accepting applications for the Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program. Landowners may apply for WHIP at any time. However, applications received by Jan. 29 will be evaluated and considered for the 2010 program year. Applications received after that date will be held until the next evaluation period.

  • Hay is the major source of winter feed for beef cattle and considerable effort and cost goes into producing the hay. This effort and cost increases concern as hay feeding losses increase. Hay losses can be expected with any hay feeding system, however the amount of loss varies with the particular system used.  Small square bales fed properly generally have less loss than do large round bales.

  • Kentucky Baptist Disaster Relief is on alert for the developing Southern Baptist relief effort aimed at helping Haitians affected by the deadly earthquake that hit the island on Jan. 12.

    According to Kentucky Baptist Convention Disaster Relief Associate Coy Webb, the KBC will “more than likely send an assessment team within the next week, but everything right now depends upon transportation.”

  • God desires that we each live a balanced life and the finest picture of the balanced life in the scriptures is found in Revelation 10:1-2.

    “And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire; and he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot upon the earth.”

  • On the day after Christmas, David Miller of Hodgenville found what he had been seeking for more than 45 years – his half-sister.

    “This was the best Christmas present I could have asked for,” Miller said after reuniting with his sibling, Jayne Allen, at LaRue County Sportsman’s Lake. 

    Finding her was a combination of coincidence, collaboration and persistence.

  • The topic of farm record keeping is about as glamorous as dirt. Farmers will talk about beef cattle, corn varieties, weeds, tobacco insects, weather and chemicals all day long, and sometimes late into the night. But, if you mention recordkeeping, farmers slip away quickly (I might mention, this aversion to recordkeeping is not unique to farmers).
