  • Avoid strife for a godly life

    Personality conflicts cause many problems in our lives. We don’t get along with some people and when relationships are bad, life stinks. It is very important that we learn to get along with others.

    James says in 3:18, “Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness.” We sow seeds every day in our relationships and one day there will be a harvest. What kind of harvest will it be? It all depends on the seeds we have sown. The question then becomes: How can I plant seeds of peace and have peaceful relationships?

  • Consider stockpiling some fescue fields in August

    August is an important month for beef producers to plan their fall and winter grazing program. Using crop residues and small grain and ryegrass cover crops can provide some late fall-early winter, as well as late- winter and early- spring gazing. However, the best option is to stockpile fescue during late summer and fall for use in late fall and winter.

    Select the fields to be stockpiled and graze or mow soon. Add nitrogen by mid-August. Let stockpiled fields grow as long as possible in fall while other pastures are being grazed.
