  • Cattle producers hear long list of problems, no solutions

    The Farmer's Pride

    Producers heard about several reasons for weak cattle prices, but came away from a meeting last week still not sure where to place blame.

    The Kentucky Cattlemen’s Association hosted town hall meetings in LaRue and Clark counties so local cattle producers could hear from representatives from the feeder and packing industries.

  • 2016 County Soybean Variety Plot Results

    The LaRue County Extension Service annually conducts corn and soybean variety trial plots in cooperation with a local farmer and participating grain companies. The plots demonstrate how specific varieties can perform under local conditions for a given year.

    Both the corn and soybean plots were in cooperation with Caleb Ragland of Shady Rest Farms. This was our first year at the location and our yields for both plots were outstanding.

  • Turkey Talk

    Now that fall weather has finally arrived, we’ve come to the time of year when talk turns to turkeys. Technically, there is only one breed of turkey, with several varieties, although many people incorrectly refer to these varieties as breeds.

    Turkeys are raised only for meat. They are not raised for egg production, as with chickens, ducks and quail. As a result, turkeys do not produce very many eggs.

    The most common type of commercial turkey raised in the United States is the Broad-Breasted White. It has a larger breast than the other varieties of turkeys.
