The Northeast Area Livestock Association is taking orders for the winter group mineral order. Hinton Mills won the bid and will be providing two minerals to choose from. Spring calving operations should choose the UK IRM Basic Cow/Calf Mineral containing High Magnesium ($16.70 per 50-pound bag) to help prevent grass tetany. Fall calving operations should choose the UK IRM Basic Cow/Calf Mineral ($14.00 per 50-pound bag). These products are not recommended for sheep, goats or Jersey cattle due to potential copper toxicity.
Mineral orders must be placed by Tuesday, November 24th by calling the Carter County Extension Office at 474-6686. Minerals can be picked up at Hinton Mills or at the Carter County Extension Office at 9:00 AM on Friday, December 11th.
