  • In a moment

    We are all familiar with the process of change.  In the physical world we are witnesses to the process right now especially in the changing of seasons.

    Green leaves have changed color and are falling from the trees.  Fields once green with corn and beans have been harvested leaving the land bare.

    Physically, we are aware of change --- out, up,  bigger around, you name it.  I’m really wasting time and space trying to convince you of something so evident everywhere.

  • 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.

    I’m writing this several days before the election, but by the time this column makes it to print and is being read, we should know who our next President of the United States will be. President Clinton? President Trump? A third party candidate?
