The North American Manure Expo is returning to Pennsylvania and promises to provide “Manure than you can Handle.”
This one-day short course will be held in four locations across Pennsylvania. Equine gastrointestinal parasites, and their increasing resistance to available dewormers, are a major concern in the equine industry. Taking a whole-farm approach to control can cut down on deworming, save money on products that are no longer effective on your farm, help you learn which horses have natural resistance and which ones are “shedders”, and help reduce parasite resistance.
Beef, sheep, meat-goat and swine producers looking for information on how to make their livestock enterprises more profitable can take advantage of four home-study courses offered by Penn State Extension this winter.
Have you ever thought of running for local elected office? Local government is where the action is. You can help make decisions about how your community will grow, what shape the streets are in, and which services are most important. Land use, growth policies, infrastructure improvements and taxation are some of the more obvious areas of concern.
And other wildlife too! Reserve the date, January 17, 2015, to help your children create decorations to nurture our wildlife.
