    by Steve Musen

    Calving season will be here before we know it. Providing sound management during that time can mean more live calves, which translates to more profit for you.

    It is important to have a short calving period to allow frequent observation and assistance if needed. Some specific things a producer can do to limit calf loss include:

  • Don’t forget what’s in the root cellar for daily meals

    by Jeneen Wiche

    Perhaps this can be a reminder of the payoff of “putting up” the garden in spring, summer, and fall: We have extended our homegrown eating pleasure into the winter months with some basic preservation methods. If you froze, dried, canned or otherwise preserved fresh fruits and vegetables in 2016 do not forget about them (or horde them for some unreasonable time). 

  • Parrots need to be careful where they say ‘here kitty, kitty’

    by Roger Alford

    A distraught woman called 911, desperately seeking help to find her missing parrot.

    “We can’t help you with that, ma’am,” the dispatcher told her. “This number is for real emergencies only.”

  • Mad stones have been known to cure what ails

    For centuries blisters, bunions and boils were treated with home remedies, as were more serious illnesses. From purging to blood letting to herbal poultices, folks treated themselves, their families and their neighbors, using remedies passed down through generations.
    With the advent of antibiotics, many old remedies went out of vogue. Although leeches and maggots were used since ancient times, by the 20th century they became a treatment of the past. That is, until recently.

  • Some enjoy Florida while we at home are growing ‘webbed feet’

    Unless you have been vacationing in Florida since Christmas you have noticed it’s been raining a great part of the time since before Christmas. Wanda said we’ve had two and a half inches.
