mineralsCattle Mineral Workshop
You probably know it's important to feed your cattle a well-balanced mineral supplement, but you might not know why it is. Cattle with mineral shortages or imbalances do poorly in reproduction, lactation, weight gains, body condition, etc. - all the factors that affect your profitability. But most mineral deficiencies don't show obvious symptoms until it's too late, and without good records it's hard to identify a gradual decline in cattle performance.

Join Ark Country Store and Purina Cattle Specialist, Doug Hawkins for a Cattle Mineral Meeting. 

Thursday, June 24th from 7:00 to 8:00 A.M. 

Learn more about cattle minerals and take advantage of savings during this meeting.  $100 ton discount on orders placed, be sure to bring your checkbook or credit cards!

For more information call the store, 972-937-8860, or sign up online to attend this free meeting.

mulchMaster Gardener Tips
This is the best time to plant vinca, in full sun, and caladiums in shade only.  They like the hot weather.  Use a variety of vinca that is resistant to soil borne diseases.  It comes in many colors, except yellow.  A caladium called 'Red Flash" is one to try. 

You can still plant warm season color in containers or int he ground using 4-inch or larger nursery stock.  Keep them watered.  Containers may need water twice a day. 

Prepare for plant seeds of fall tomatoes.

Plants will need supplemental water if rainfall is inadequate.  Visually check each sprinkler head weekly to be sure your irrigation system is working properly and make any needed adjustments or repairs. 

Ark Country Store has select lawn sprinklers on sale, 20% off this month!
