  • Ten reasons to make forage first in the rotation

    Provide protein – Legume forages can provide up to 75 percent of the protein needed by lactating dairy cows; corn silage can provide up to 25 percent.

    Provide fiber – Forages are often the only source of fiber in a cow’s diet. Fiber is essential to slow the passage of feed, thereby increasing the amount of nutrients that the cow can absorb from the feed.

    Maximize intake – Forages stimulate cud chewing and rumination, which improve the cow’s appetite.  Some non-forage sources of fiber actually reduce intake.

    As the Washington County tennis team prepared for the 2009 season, coach Steve Schubart knew something was going to be different this year. The team has added what Schubart calls his secret weapons, the brother combo of Cyrus and Darius Moslemi.

    “Cyrus is ranked third in Kentucky and should place high in the regionals and perhaps go to the state tournament,” said Schubart. “Darius is a fifth-grader at North Washington Elementary School.”
