  • LaRue County’s grain producers soon will begin an expected bountiful harvest of corn. With these higher yields, it is critical to fine-tune equipment to reduce field loss, reduce mechanical delays, improve performance, assure a safe harvest and maintain grain quality of your crops. In fact, a few hours spent with combines, augers, conveyors, dryers and storage bins usually will have a considerable pay back. 

  • According to the 2007 USDA Agricultural census, LaRue County ranks sixth in goat production and about 25th in sheep production in the state. While sheep numbers have declined for several years, goat production has done just the opposite – numbers have increased significantly.

    Much of the increase in goat numbers has been the introduction of meat type goats such as Boer goats from Africa and other foreign countries. This has generated an increased supply of higher quality goat meat for consumers.

  • Mrs. Smith’s and Mrs. Cline’s fourth-grade classes met for their 4-H meeting Sept. 16 at Abraham Lincoln Elementary School.

  • The LaRue County FFA Chapter was selected as a 3-Star winner in the National FFA Chapter Award program. The local organization was selected from a pool of more than 600 candidates nationwide.

    “It is very exciting to know that our chapter is recognized as one of the elite chapters, not only in Kentucky, but in the nation,” said FFA advisor and LaRue County High School agriculture teacher Misty Bivens. “Mr. (Tim) Quiggins and I know that our members are outstanding, but it’s good to know it is recognized by others also.”

    The performers are tenor Dan Blanchard; Stu Sollman, lead; Tim Shaner, baritone; and Tim Blanchard, bass and vocal percussionist as well as arranger/writer for the group. All are from Louisville.
