  • Gardens of Owen County take spotlight

    Beef synchronization
    The weather we had this past summer may cause some later calving cows to be particularly late in coming into cycle for re-breeding this spring. There are some techniques available that might help producers tighten up the potentially drawn-out calving season for next year.
    A meeting to discuss new research and methods of estrus synchronization for beef cattle will be held at the Carroll County Extension Office at 7 next Tuesday night. Anyone interested in learning more about this is invited to attend. Call the extension office for more information.
