Taking The Bite Out of Horn Fly Losses With Mineral Additives

Wind & Rain Mineral
Great feed for your cattle!
One of the things beef producers dread most about the coming warm weather is the advent of troublesome horn flies. These insects are annoying, to be sure. But, they are more than just pests, they are really "obligate parasites," who must stay with -and live off of- their host in order to survive. 
It's Spring - Ready, Set, Ride!

Now that the weather has finally
warmed up, horse owners are starting to spend more time with their horses, and are looking forward to even more enjoyable riding weather. There are some nutritional concerns, however, during this season, and some management issues we should address to ensure the health and performance of our horses.

Candice's Corner:  Tips from the Master Gardener

April is here and the temperatures are warming up quickly!  Here are a few tips for your garden.

  • If you need to prune your azaleas, April is a good time to do it.  Be sure to wait until they finish blooming but be sure not to prune any later than June. Your azaleas probably do not need pruning every year, but trimming  long shoots to keep the bush compact will not harm it.
  • Time to seed warm season annuals.  Be sure you give some extra thought to the flowers you are planting.  You'll get the best value from your landscape if you plant flowers that are native to the area and heat/drought tolerant.
  • Keep freshly seeded beds moist!
  • If you plant flowers already started in pots, choose annuals that are short and compact plants.  Try to choose plants that have not yet begun to flower or remove any flowers and buds to give the plants an opportunity to become well established before flowering.
  • Ornamental grasses make wonderful accents in the flower bed and landscape.
  • According to the Texas AgriLife website, there's still time to plant many vegetables, including bush and pole beans, cucumber, cantaloupe, pumpkin, summer & winter squash, and watermelons from seed.  Okra, sweet potatoes and Southern peas do better with warmer soil and can be planted later in the month.
