  • Summer annual grasses

    By Daniel Carpenter

    LaRue County Extension Agent

      Summer annual grasses such as sudangrass, sorghum x sudangrass hybrids, pearl millet, and teff can all play a role for pasture and hay needs. If managed properly, these grasses can provide high yields of good quality forage in a short amount of time.

  • The other yellow flowers

    Weeds with yellow flowers are getting a lot of attention lately. I promise, I am not obsessed with them and next week’s article will have nothing to do with anything yellow-flowered!

    Last week’s weed, cressleaf groundsel, is found mainly in fields that are dedicated to grain production. This week’s weed, buttercup, is found mainly in pasture fields. We have had several concerned cattle farmers call or stop in this week with questions about how to control buttercup weeds in their pastures.

  • 4-H Camp; sign your child up today

    4-H Camp is a great way to fill those lazy summer days. At 4-H Camp, young people learn independence, responsibility, have a lot of fun and make many friends.

    4-H camps are open to all Kentucky youth between the ages of 9 and 14. Many exciting activities and adventures await campers. 4-H’ers can spend their days participating in activities ranging from swimming to nature hikes. Not only do many children find these activities fun, but they will likely learn new skills and develop a greater appreciation for the environment and wildlife.
