  • Make belief part of your life story

    “This is Your Life” was a television program some years ago hosted by the late Ralph Edwards. The program would have someone as its subject and surprise the person with people and events from their past.

    Landmark News Service

    James J. Greenberger isn’t holding out much hope that an electric vehicle battery plant will be built in Glendale in the near future.

    “At the moment, there’s not much to be optimistic about,’’ said Greenberger, co-founder of the National Alliance for Advanced Transportation Batteries consortium. “I wish I could have something more positive, but I don’t want there to be false hopes out there. We don’t have a lot of optimism for this anytime soon.’’

  • Fall weed control decisions

    LaRue County farmers tend usually pay less attention to combating weed problems during the fall and early winter months than during the spring planting season. However, this is an optimum time to critically evaluate successes and failures of the past growing season and make plans for the upcoming 2010 growing season.

    It is a good time of year to consider what weed control strategies worked, and what options did not perform up to expectations during the growing season, and why. Pinpointing the cause of poor weed control may not be easy.

  • Timely tips for beef producers in October

    For fall calving cows, the calving season is in full swing. Check cows frequently. Identify calves and commercial males should be castrated and implanted.

    Obtain yearling measurements (weight, hip height, scrotal circumference) on replacement animals—especially for registered ones. The largest measurements for weight, height and pelvic areas aren’t what you are looking for. In most cases, you are more concerned with minimums, like eliminating heifers with very small pelvic areas so that you minimize their likelihood of calving difficulty.
