    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, its body will store the excess calories as fat, like money in the bank the animal 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.

  • More than 100,000 cattle move through the Bluegrass Stockyards each year. The facility has been a mainstay in Central Kentucky since the mid-1930’s. Recently a massive fire completely destroyed the location near downtown Lexington, and local producers will feel its absence.

    It’s February and of course we instantly think of Valentine’s Day. What better way to create a warm spot during the cold bleak month of February than to plan a tasty dinner and dessert for that special someone in our life on Valentine’s Day, particularly if the dessert is chocolate.

    Spencer County High School sophomore Skylar Volz claimed statewide recognition recently when her wildlife conservation essay won third place out of 17,665 entries from across Kentucky.

    “I did not think I was going to make it that far,” she said. “… Even though I didn’t win, it was still a really big deal for me.”
