  • Garbage fees to go up July 1

    Garbage pick-up prices will rise starting July 1, but could be locked in until June 30, 2014.
    The current rate per month for garbage pick-up is $13.78.
    According to county judge-executive John Settles, the new rate would rise to $13.99, but would do away with the fuel surcharge.
    “However, in negotiations, (Rumpke) presented $14.25 and we negotiated down to this,” Settles said.

  • Manage your hay crop effectively

    Hay is a significant agricultural crop in Kentucky, with receipts around $150 million in 2009, the most recent year for which data is on file. The Commonwealth typically harvests around 2.5 million acres of hay, the vast majority of which is fescue/grass hay. Because hay is important to livestock producers of all types, learning to effectively manage a hay crop for higher and better yields is a critical skill. New research from the University of Wisconsin Extension summarizes how to shorten the harvest window, enhance forage quality, and reduce the chance for rain damage.
