  • Spring in Spencer County is a great time of greening and warming, but it’s also a time when livestock producers need to watch out for grass tetany, also called spring tetany or grass staggers. Some people also refer to it as wheat pasture poisoning, winter tetany or lactation tetany. Regardless, it’s a condition caused by an abnormally low level of magnesium in the blood.

  • I want to say spring has sprung, but it hasn’t. I have 160 Freedom Ranger chicks coming in the mail next week and lambs hitting the ground (don’t worry, that’s shepherd talk for lambs being born). I want warm not just for the new 2-legged and 4-legged arrivals but for my potatoes, onions and kale. I need warm before I can even think of putting a tomato, bean or cucumber out in the garden.

  • I am a fairly organized but not necessarily neat guy. For example my keys go in the same place each night. That spot may get filled with other scraps of paper or coins, but my keys will always be there. That way I can always find my keys.Most of us do the same sort of thing; we find ways to keep things from getting lost. The other day I went looking for a little gadget (a digital recorder) I always keep on my desk. I use it every Sunday, so I keep it in one place. Now my desk is a sort of natural disaster area. But I can usually find what I want.

  • A reading from John 16:32-33:“Behold, the hour is coming, indeed it has come, when you will be scattered, each to his own home, and will leave me alone. Yet I am not alone, for the Father is with me. I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

  • I usually drive a big red SUV, but sometimes I think I am in the invisible car. A car pulls up to an intersection and then without a blink just pulls out in front of me like I’m not even there! After my heart attack I wonder why they didn’t see me!So what is the problem? Why don’t people see what is right in front of them? For example you probably didn’t notice the extra “the” in the first sentence of this paragraph. Somehow most of us just skim right over it and never even know it was there.
