Cattle Mineral Meeting  


Wind & Rain MineralSave the date for our Cattle Mineral Meeting on Wednesday, February 22, 2012 from noon to 1:30pm.   

 

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.     

 

Come learn the latest in cattle mineral nutrition!  Register online or call the store to RSVP, 972-937-8860.  Lunch will be provided.

Candice's Corner:  Tips from the Master Gardener

Happy New Year and welcome to the 2012 garden season.  December brought us some much needed rain and mild temperatures.   The garden soils should be ready for you to work in your compost and other organic products.  Ark Country Store carries Bradfield Organics and Gardenville products that can help with your early gardening needs.

 

Here is a quick guide:

  • Plant potatoes and onion sets in well prepared soil in January.
  • Peppers, tomatoes and warm-season annuals from seed can also be planted.  Make sure they are in a well lit place with warm temperatures.
  • Spray fruit and pecan trees with a Horticulture oil / All Season Spray
  • Prune fruit trees
  • Prune off damaged and weak tree limbs
  • Plant fruit trees, pecan trees, grape and berry plants
  • Consider getting your soil tested in your lawn or gardens
