Two Extension Events In Canyon

The Randall County Extension Office is hosting two upcoming events related to pest control. Both sessions will be conducted at the Kuhlman Extension Center at 200 N. Brown Road in Canyon.

On Tuesday, July 29 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., there will be a weed management update meeting with three CEUs available for private applicators. There is no cost to attend and no RSVP is required.

Two days later on Thursday, July 31 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., there will be a pesticide applicator training session. Payment of a $10 fee is required for this event.  If you want to attend that session, RSVP the Randall County Extension Office at (806) 468-5543 by 5 p.m. Tuesday, July 29. If there are no RSVPs, the event will be cancelled.   

Sorghum Sales To China Booming

China has become far and away the top export destination for U.S. sorghum. The latest numbers for the current marketing year show that 186-million bushels of U.S. sorghum have been sold to foreign markets overall, and of that global total, the vast majority – 162 million bushels – has been purchased by China to feed livestock. The Sorghum Checkoff’s executive director, Florentino Lopez, told KGNC that U.S. sorghum is benefiting from the growing economy of China where consumers are buying more grain-fed meat. Lopez explained that increased production of protein-based food in China has spurred livestock producers there to buy “a lot more coarse grains” for feeding animals. “It just happens that sorghum fits very well in some of their rations,” Lopez said, adding that the Chinese have experienced “a positive response” from using sorghum as a feedstuff.  During the KGNC Agribusiness Hour, Lopez said China is already making big advance purchases of sorghum for the next marketing year, which begins September 1.  

Research On Zilmax

The outlook for Zilmax remains cloudy, but a new study has found no evidence that the feed additive causes negative effects in cattle. University of Nebraska researchers say post-slaughter evaluation of 20 heifers that were fed Zilmax found no effects on the animals’ hearts, livers, lungs, kidneys or adrenal glands. But DTN reports the study did not directly examine lameness in cattle. Zilmax was temporarily suspended by its manufacturer – Merck – in August of last year after some of the nation’s largest beef processors expressed concerns of possible adverse effects on cattle, including walking difficulties. Merck has announced it plans another study involving 250,000 cattle.  

Water District Schedules Hearings

Two public hearings have been scheduled concerning upcoming changes to the High Plains Water District’s rules and management plan. Levelland will be the location for the first hearing, July 29 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Mallet Event Center. The second meeting will be in Canyon on August 5 at the Randall County Extension office, also from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. For more information about the proposed changes and how to submit comments regarding the proposals, go here  http://www.hpwd.com/media/press-releases/july-7,-2014/
