Pasture/hay improvement strategies and cover crops meeting Jan. 28

RICHMOND — I would like to invite you to participate in an upcoming meeting concerning cover crops, forage and beef production. This meeting is 6 p.m. Monday, Jan. 28, at the Madison County Extension Office, 230 Duncannon Lane.

The first session will focus on using cover crops to extend the grazing season and provide soil health benefits. Jimmy Lyons, NRCS resource conservationist, will share his experience and provide recommendations for success. In cooperation with Madison County Conservation District, we will discuss our local demonstration plots as well.

Via computer, Dr. Garry Lacefield, UK Extension forage specialist, will be speaking on “Preparing for More and Better Pastures In 2013,” and Dr. Jeff Lehmkuhler, UK Extension Beef Cattle Specialist, will be speaking on “Strategies to Stretch the Hay Supply.” A meal will be served, so reserve a spot by giving us a call 623-4072.

Pesticide certification meetings set

I have planned four meetings to certify or re-certify those farmers that need Private Farm Pesticide Applicator Certification (PATIM). If you are spraying restricted use pesticides on your farm you need this certification. (If you charge a fee to someone else for these services, you will need to obtain a Commercial Applicator License through KDA. The private pesticide applicator training does not pertain to the Commercial Applicator License Certification.)

The private pesticide applicator sessions will be held at the Madison County Extension Office on Duncannon Lane on the following dates. You need to attend only one session.

• Tuesday, Jan. 29, noon or 6 p.m.

• Thursday, Feb. 7, noon or 6 p.m.

You may attend any one session to be certified to use restricted-use pesticides on your farm. There is no cost for this certification.

IMPORTANT: If you are not using your present card, and will not be using restricted-use pesticides in the future, you do not need to re-certify. Call to let us know and we can take your name off our list. If you have questions, please call me, 623-4072.

  • 7-29 Nostalgia-Glenmore.jpg Paper boys learned life, business lessons

    I often flash back to the days from the mid to late 1930s when I was a paper boy.
    There were 10 or 12 of us who rolled out of bed at 5 a.m. every day, jumped on our bicycles and headed downtown to the Glyndon Hotel and picked up our papers for delivery.

    The following were included in last year’s exams and were answered by 16-year-old high school students. The answers are genuine, and we must remember that these youngsters will grow up to vote, marry and become parents. It’s a scary thought.

    Hello readers, it’s a stormy Monday evening as I write this, and I’ve been thanking the Lord all day for the good rain – over an inch in the gauge now, and it looks like more before morning.

  • Can you believe such cool weather in mid July?

    Hi!
    Refreshing. That’s the word one TV weatherman described the upcoming days when temperatures will be in the 70s with virtually no humidity and lots of sunshine. Can you believe that in the middle of July? We can live with that, can’t we? We may even get close to setting a record for morning lows later this week. This has certainly been the year for strange weather!
