Beef cattle meeting is Thursday

RICHMOND — Join us at 6 p.m. Thursday at Blue Grass Stockyards in Richmond for a beef cattle BVD meeting.

Local veterinarian Dr. Leo Gayheart will discuss the causes, testing and management of BVD-PI in your cattle and why it can be so costly to many of our beef operations.

This will be a “learn-by-doing” type meeting as we demonstrate the proper way to collect samples for BVD-PI testing. Testing is easy and can save you significant dollars in medication and lessen the occurrence of re-treatment of sick cattle.

Dr. Beth Johnson, DVM, with the Kentucky Department of Agriculture, will be on hand to discuss BVD monitoring at the state level. Bluegrass Stockyards representatives also will share an industry perspective on BVD in our area.

A sponsored meal will be served. Make plans to attend this important meeting.

The Madison County Beef Cattle Association will be grilling burgers and hotdogs for this meeting. So that we do not run out of food, please give me a call at 623-4072 if you plan to attend.

Beekeeping meeting Monday

The Madison County Beekeeper Group will kick off its 2014 meeting series 6 p.m. Monday at the Madison County Extension Office. We have a great program lined up that includes:

• Election of officers

• Beekeeping events for 2014

• Educational program: Helping your bees survive the historic winter of 2014 and preparing for spring build-up, by Randy Rosbrook

• Equipment swap board: Assisting new beekeepers with their equipment needs.

This meeting is open to anyone interested in beekeeping at any experience level. You do not have to be a resident of Madison County to attend.

A potluck meal will be served. Call me with any questions, 623-4072, and to let us know you will be attending.

This meeting qualifies as a CAIP educational component

Educational programs of the Cooperative Extension Service serve all people regardless of race, color, age, sex, religion, disability or national origin.

    I love this time of the year because eggs really do go down in price during the Easter season. I have some new recipes on how to fix eggs besides the coloring part.

    Who knew the Easter bunny could fly?

    Skeptics can come to the Easter Eggstravaganza in Richmond’s Irvine-McDowell Park on Saturday to see for themselves. However, the bunny still doesn’t fly in bad weather. But on Monday, temperatures in the 60s with partly cloudy skies were predicted for Saturday.
