  • Fillies roll past Deming 58-37, fall to Lady Indians Friday

    The Harrison County Fillies spotted Deming a few early points before taking control late in the first quarter in route to a 58-37 district win Wednesday in Cynthiana.  
    The Fillies were ice cold at first as they were only three of 21 in the opening period yet they took a 13-6 lead by quarter’s end.  
    The 1-16 Lady Devils were only able to manage two field goals in 13 tries as they were finding getting a good shot to be very difficult against the Fillies’ defense.  

  • Tobacco meeting planned for Monday

    It’s hard to believe that we are beginning to plan for the 2013 crop year. Following a summer of super-hot temperatures and limited rainfall, it sure would be nice to enjoy a seasonable year.
    This past season tobacco seems to be a growing interest for several producers in our county. Prices have been good and those producing the crop seem to be very consistent. Because of this we will have a tobacco production meeting on Monday, Jan. 28 at the Harrison County Extension Center. The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m.

  • Too good to be true? Don’t believe outrageous claims

    This time of the year subtle warnings come from professionals reminding the consumer to be skeptical of mail order catalogues or advertisements that claim “new horticultural breakthroughs,” otherwise outrageous claims or mass quantities of things for bargain basement prices.  
    There are legitimate “horticultural breakthroughs,” but usually different terminology is used and you’ll find them at your local stores.   

  • January: A good check point for spring heifer programs

    January is an extremely important “checkpoint” in spring heifer development programs. The key to proper heifer development lies in understanding the factors that influence conception in yearling heifers. One key factor regulating heifer fertility is age at puberty. Most producers don’t consider age at puberty of their heifers to be a major problem, yet few know how many heifers are actually cyclic at the beginning of the breeding season.
