Sabetha EMS adds third ambulance

Wednesday, October 1, 2014

These lights do not put as much strain on the electrical system or create as much heat, according to EMS director Ed Steinlage.

She has determined that cattle that remain calm during handling in squeeze chutes have a higher average daily gain than... Read More
