January 18, 2010 Ag Column


This will be a very shortened version of the ag column today as I am a little under the weather.  There are some things to talk about to include proper cattle nutrients.  We are entering the last trimester for the beef cow and she is needing good nutrient management.  First to produce a healthy live calf, this spring, and secondly help her reproduce for the upcoming breeding season.  Poor conditioning can cause a cow to either not get bred or the cow might settle later in the trimester.  Either way make sure you are feeding a well balanced diet to your cow herd.  There are services available that will do an analysis of your feedstuffs and provide you with information, at times could be alarming.

I would also like to mention the new increase varieties available from county producers.  Conventional soybean (Ashtabula), barley (Celebration) and HRSW (Barlow) are available by stopping by our office to sign up for and leave a  $1.00 deposit on the bushels you have requested.  After February 1 the bushels will be opened to surrounding counties, so if you are interested in obtaining some new seed hurry on in.
