cattleSeven Vital Trace Minerals for Cattle

Cobalt, copper, iodine, iron, manganese, selenium and zinc are trace minerals important to good cattle nutrition. Ranchers and feedlot operators need to know whether or not these minerals are available in their regions and supplement deficiencies accordingly. This TDN excerpts an article by Oklahoma State University animal nutritionist Fred Owens which identified the geographic availability of trace minerals. The original article appeared in the May, 1988 issue of Beef as "The Haves and the Have Nots."

Garden Checklist for March 2010

The average last freeze date in Ellis County is March 15. Often tomato and pepper plants started outdoors from seed will grow so quickly they will catch up with commercial plants in size within a few weeks. For many gardeners, this is the only way to obtain rare or heirloom varieties.

Fertilzing and Pruning

  • Pruning of evergreens and summer flowering trees and shrubs should be completed in early March.
  • Prune spring flowering trees and shrubs as soon as they finish blooming.
  • Remove dead top growth (Bermuda grass only) by lowering mower blade one or two notches
  • Apply a high nitrogen fertilizer to pecans, and again in April and May.
  • Fertilize roses every 4 to 6 weeks from now until September.
