Strong start highlights Yellow Jacket scrimmage at Granbury

By BRAD KEITHTheFlashToday.comGRANBURY (August 19, 2016) — Stephenville rattled off four straight touchdowns to dominate the early phases of scrimmage play, then held off 5A Granbury, 4-2, at Johnny Perkins Field Friday.
The first-team defense was especially dominant during the controlled phase of the scrimmage, allowing just a couple first downs on two seven-minute possessions by Granbury.
Easton Jones fired touchdowns of 15 yard and 45 yards to Blake Aragon with a 15-yard scoring strike to Mason Holstein coming between them. Second-team defenseman Gage Graham also found the end zone, scooping up a Granbury fumble and rumbling 35 yards for the score.
Granbury scored late in the controlled phase with its second-team offense, then the Pirates scored a short rushing touchdown and controlled the Stephenville offense to win the one-half game sim... (The Flash Today (blog))Jun 22, 2016
Cows, wildflowers and squash: Finding more sustainable food at UNH
But some things are a little different, like a sign asking people to text graduate student Kayla Aragona if they see calving in the process.
That sign, said dairy manager of 33 years Jon Whitehouse, is to help Aragona with her study of feeding niacin to a pregnant cow. When the calf is born, Aragona takes blood samples of mom and baby cow to see how the supplemental vitamin helps the quality of the first milk the cow has available for her calf.
The expectation, said Whitehouse, is that the milk will pass on higher levels of immunity to the calf.
“So then there’s a healthier animal,” he said.
In her experiment, Aragona is also testing a device called Moocall, a motion detector placed on a pregnant cow’s tail that, when she’s contracting just before calving, sends a text message to the farmer.
One particular cow wasn’t a fan of the $300 device hanging off her tail, and tried to get it off by banging it against the wall.
“It was sending (Kayla) tests all the time – it was driving her crazy,” Whitehouse said. In general, though, he added, “It’s a pretty neat device – it’s something a common farmer can buy.”
Whitehouse added that all the studies at Fairfield Dairy are an effort to help the state’s farmers.
“Anything to make the herd healthier,” he said. And anything to boost protein in cow’s milk, which at higher levels, demands a higher milk price.
Of the 90 cows in the herd, about 80 percent are pregnant at any one time, and about 20 are in the student teaching CREAM (Cooperative for Real Education in Agricultural Management) herd.
Just under 10 miles away in Lee, the station has an organic research dairy farm run by Nicole Guindon. In the afternoon heat, Jersey calves grazed in the sun, swatted away bugs and enthusiastically greeted visitors.
It’s the first organic dairy to be included at a land-grant university, Wright explained, and works to find organic ways to improve cow health and milk. To try and get rid of ticks and mosquitoes, for instance, Wright said Guindon was trying out a flock of the loud-squawking, bug-devouring guinea hen.
Then and now
All these activities in the fields, greenhouses and barns have in fact been at the very roots of UNH since it began way back in the 1860s, Wright said.
“It was founded in part to solve agricultural issues that we’re still having today,” she said.
When the school and its agricultural station was moved from its original location at Dartmouth College to some land left behind by farmer Benjamin Thompson in Durham in the 1890s, it was done with the intention that New Hampshire establish a school to promote agriculture.
In looking back to its beginnings, Wright said the New Hampshire Agricultural Experiment Station’s early days may also hold some clues about the state’s future for sustainable food.
“All of these movements are part of New Hampshire’s agricultural history,” said Wright. “These are perennial issues that we have to keep looking at and studying to try and do better.”

Tunica Biloxi tribe encourages youth literacy

The tribe owns and operates the Paragon Casino Resort, the largest employer in Central Louisiana. Through its compact, negotiated by the late Tribal Chairman Earl J. Barbry, Sr. and the State of Louisiana, the Tribe has been able to assist local governments in the area with its quarterly distribution of funds, totaling more than $40 million over two decades.
