  • Fat is not always a bad word

    By Jessica Barnes, County extension agent for agriculture & natural resources
     
    Is fat a bad word? Not necessarily. Simply put, fat is just the body’s storage form for energy. If an animal consumes more energy than it uses, their body will store the excess calories as fat - like money in the bank they can use in an energy shortage (think cows calving in late winter). Fat imparts flavor to food (like a T-bone steak) but it also adds calories. So managing fat can be a delicate issue in the cattle business.

  • Is it time to refresh Black History Month?

    February is Black History Month, and as such, sparks some debate, from all races, about the continuing usefulness of designating one month for one race of people.
    Increasingly, it seems that Black History Month is simply relegated to a symbolic march in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and very little else.
    Shouldn’t it be more than that?
