  • Snow pack leaves evidence of wildlife

    Yesterday, 4:30 p.m., after shedding my city boots for my country boots, I headed back out the door with my egg basket and a jug of water.  
    Our two livestock guardian dogs were by my side as we headed back to the barn.  
    In the blink of an eye, Baxter and Finca took off in full defense mode towards our hens and the barn. Baxter took the front and Finca took the back. And, to my bewilderment, a beautiful coyote was flushed from beyond and the dogs followed pursuit.  Wiley coyote hit the frozen lake and the dogs circlee.

  • NRCS breakfast is March 6

    The Harrison County Conservation District is hosting the annual Conservation Breakfast meeting on March 6 at the Cooperative Extension Office.
    Richard Bowling, NRCS Grazing Specialist, will be speaking about the benefits of Rotational Grazing and Rotational Grazing System Design. The key to a successful rotational grazing system is proper ending grazing heights, the rest period for forage regrowth, a system laid out for ease of movement and the ability to make paddock subdivisions.

  • Ice laden branches

    The 2009 January ice storm knocked down limbs, electricity and phone service across Kentucky.
    The damage to trees was astounding, to say the least. Last week’s icy “situation” brought back the memory of those dread-filled days as we slowly tackled the clean-up effort at the farm.  
    This year’s ice is not nearly as bad as 2009 but it sure left a mess in its wake. If you are among those with heavy damage assess the situation with an eye towards safety first and foremost.
