    Weaning is usually a stressful time of year for calves. Limiting weaning stress in beef calves can increase their daily gain. Calves often experience four types of stress: physical, environmental, nutritional and social. You can help them avoid or minimize these with proper management.

    Physical stress usually happens during long periods of standing in working facilities, mishandling in the working chute and hauling to a weaning facility.

    I am allergic to many things and it is not just seasonal pollen…so trust me when I say don’t blame your late summer sneezes on this lovely perennial.  There are about 100 species of golden rod in North America, twenty of which can be found in Kentucky.   So, it is no surprise that Solidago, or golden rod, is Kentucky’s official state flower.
