Alan's Answers

With holiday season on us here are some thoughts about your pets and the holidays. 


Jennifer asked "I recently purchased a puppy that is very active and into everything.  Will it hurt my puppy if he attacks and eats my Christmas tree, not only the needles but also the bark?"


Alan's Answer: Christmas time can be a very challenging time to train a new puppy.  They love to play with everything and have a high level of curiosity.  It is highly recommended to keep many holiday plants out of reach from your puppy.  Pine needles can be very harmful, possibly causing vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, trembling and posterior weakness. You should also keep hollies, poinsettia plants and mistletoe away from your puppy.  I would recommend keeping ornaments, Christmas lights, tinsel, and chocolate away from your puppy.  This may be a good year to not put freshness chemicals in your Christmas tree stand. Not being a vet, I can only recommend you call your vet if your puppy has eaten one of these items and does not appear to be acting normal. 


I would like to take this opportunity to wish all our customers a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I feel blessed to be able to call my customers my friends. It has been a pleasure to serve you and help you reach your goals this pass year and here at New Braunfels Feed & Supply, we look forward to working with you in 2012.

Expect Weed Growth after Drought and Wildfires

By Kay Ledbetter

"A weed is simply a plant growing out of place or growing in a site where it is not desired."

Those are the thoughts of Dr. Barron Rector, Texas AgriLife Extension Service range specialist. And he said following this year's drought, wildfires and tons of imported hay, there may be a lot more weeds for landowners to deal with, and some could be invasive species or even toxic. Click here to learn what weed growth is expect.


Fall is Prime Time to Begin a Supplemental Feeding Program for Deer

A buck can have the best genetics in the world, but without the proper nutrition, he'll never achieve his potential. One way to stack the deck in his favor is to supplement his nutrition. Fall is an excellent time to begin this.

But before we talk about how to initiate a supplemental feeding program, let's evaluate the big picture. 


The goal: Produce larger bucks with massive antlers. Some big obstacles to that goal:
  • Lack of high quality forage in fall and winter.
  • Stresses due to inclement weather.
  • In fall, deer are heading into a natural period of low metabolism and poor appetite. During the rut, a buck may spend only 20 to 30 minutes per day eating.

Outdoor Power Tool Extended Storage Tips
Presented by Stihl


If you plan to "mothball" a 2-cycle tool for a long period - say over 30 days or more - a few easy steps will help your equipment be ready for action when you are ready to go back to work.


To get the equipment ready for storage, clean it first. The air filter and the cylinder fins can be cleaned by gently brushing them with an old toothbrush. On your chain saw, remove the sprocket cover and brush away all the wood chips and sawdust. Read more  of Stihl's recommendations for storing your equipment.
