  • Deadline is December 11 to Sign Up for Country Ham Project

    The 4-H Country Ham project in LaRue County will soon be starting in its third year.  It’s now time for youth and adults to sign up to participate.  The 4-H Country Ham project has grown in the state of Kentucky, with over 700 participants statewide last year.  The project began in LaRue County with five youth traveling to Meade County to cure their hams in 2014.  In 2015, 11 youth, 2 cloverbuds and 3 adults participated.  This project is open to anyone in LaRue County including youth and adults.

  • Proper hay storage, feeding areas are important

    Hay stored outside before feeding suffers substantial losses of both yield and forage quality. Weathering losses in round hay bales are deceptively large. In fact, just a four‑inch layer on the surface can contain up to one‑third of the entire bale volume. A weather damaged 1,200 pound bale of hay would therefore actually provide only 800 pounds of feed.

    Weathered hay is much less palatable to livestock than undamaged hay.  If livestock don’t like it, they won’t eat as much.  If they eat less, they are in a worse nutritional state.
