Pack rats – the four-legged species

“I called the local Extension office, and they told me you were the Pack Rat Agent?” I’ve been called quite a few things, but this was a first! I do tend to hold on to sentimental items, more than, say, my spouse. He’s of the thinking, if you haven’t used something in the last two days, it needs to go! As we are preparing to “pack up” and move our office, from the courthouse to a new location, I’m beginning to think I just might be a pack rat! There are six species... Read More

Wild Times: Why would you eat rocks?

There was a time when I had a very nasty habit that would come to the surface every Sunday after attending church. I really do not know how this practice got started, but Paula and I would leave the kids at my parents’ house after church and then head to Country Mart. I would head directly to the deli and grab a box of chicken gizzards and then head for home. I would plop down in front of the television, tune into a football or baseball game and devour the entire box of gizzards.... Read More

Acid soils and iris

Liming Acid Soils The application of lime to correct acid soil conditions can have a significant impact on crop yields. This is especially true the more acidic soil becomes, particularly for crops like alfalfa. Nutrient availability declines and yields suffer when pH levels are out of balance. Because responses aren’t typically immediate, we have to plan ahead a little more when applying lime than we do with other fertilizer products. Since the exact amount of time is a function... Read More

Time to make decisions for fungicide management

Most cornfields in Kansas are now, or soon will be at the critical juncture for making fungicide application decisions for gray leaf spot management. Years of fungicide application research clearly demonstrate that the single best time to apply a fungicide to corn for gray leaf spot control is from growth stage VT to growth stage R1. University fungicide trials also reveal that final disease severity plays a critical role in the magnitude and consistency of yield response to a... Read More

Everything you need to know about pillows

Pillows generally last a long time, so you don’t need to buy them very often. But when you do need new ones, it’s helpful to have a few facts at hand. The most common bed pillow fillings are polyester fiberfill, feathers, down, and molded or shredded foams. The foams may be latex, polyurethane or rubber. Each stuffing material has a somewhat different feel. Fiberfill, feathers and down all feel soft and cushiony. Down and fiberfill are more resilient than feathers and return... Read More

Wild Times: Long wait is over

Once you have owned a hunting dog, it is very difficult to be without one. I just went on an eight-month stint without having a dog on the ranch. It has not been enjoyable. Walking past and mowing around a vacant dog kennel and house has not been pleasant. That dry spell ended on Saturday when Paula and I drove to Stanton, Neb., to pick up the newest addition to the family. It was a day that I had been looking forward to for a little over six weeks. When I put the pup inside the... Read More
