    Another fair is in the books and I’m so very grateful for those of you who took time to visit the demonstrations that Laurie put together in the Grange Rotunda and those who stopped to chat with us.  Life is very busy, but generally we make time for the things that are important to us, and each of you who reach out and share with us help guide the types of information we share in the future.

  7. The Financial Aspect of Alternative Forages

    Apr. 29, 2022

    A couple of weeks ago, I started discussing the ‘why’ behind alternative forages. No answer as to ‘why’ would be complete without at least a bit of conversation around the financial aspect of alternative forages. Are they cheaper to grow? More expensive? Do they increase the income over feed cost? Do they increase the cost of the ration? Dr. Ferriera also touched on this during his talk at the Tri-State Dairy Nutrition Conference.

    This spring a team of Family and Consumer Science Educators from around the state are promoting a variety of wellness topics in the form of an e-mail challenge.  I have found several of them very interesting and the following information was shared by my colleague from Fairfield County, Shannon Carter.  She and I are on several teams together and Shannon loves to teach Mindfulness, Resource management and building strong relationships.  While we often speak of nutrition or even financial wellness, but how many of us think about Intellectual Wellness?
