Upland bird population is flying low

Upland bird populations in Northeast Kansas remain lower than the historical long-term trends. Traditional game species like the bobwhite quail and ring-necked pheasant are two species of upland birds that immediately come to mind, since many landowners have seen their numbers decline substantially. Even other non-game grassland birds such as the eastern meadowlark, loggerhead shrike and upland sandpiper have experienced similar population declines. While many factors contribute... Read More

As seed fill begins, leaves provide photosynthates needed for seed fill to continue – up to a point. As seeds... Read More

Make time to body condition score cows

CHECK YOUR CATTLE Fall is a good time to do body condition scoring on the beef herd, as it can help prepare producers for management through the remainder of fall and into the winter. The old tractor still runs, but because the fuel gauge is busted, you have to keep checking to make sure it has enough fuel to continue working. And whether you realize it or not, your cows function similarly to that old tractor. “Body condition scoring is looking into a cow’s gas tank to see... Read More
