  • COLUMN: Summer heat can threaten livestock

    Humans aren’t the only ones that suffer from the heat of summer. Farm animals feel the heat, too. With summer temperatures already upon us, it’s time to think about ways to know when your livestock may be in danger from the heat and what to do to reduce their plight.
    The University of Kentucky Agricultural Weather Center provides warnings of the potential danger to livestock. Livestock become uncomfortable when the heat index reaches about 90 degrees. The heat index is a combination of air temperature and humidity and is used to describe how it feels outside.

  • COLUMN: Caution — Watch out for spiritual blind spots

    I think it has probably happened to every driver at one time or another. We’re changing lanes on the highway after doing everything right and suddenly a car is right there beeping the horn. You checked the mirror, you glanced over your shoulder and didn’t see a thing, but there he is. The blind spot has struck.
