Cattle Theft Prevention

Cattle theft in Kingman County and South Central Kansas is a growing concern which we must address, especially considering the beef futures market on the rise. Theft is all about opportunity. We will never be able to fully prevent theft, but we can make it so difficult that a would-be-thief might pass on the opportunity. Everyone has heard that locks and chains only keep honest people honest. If a thief has enough time and resources, they would steal anything. The only way to protect ourselves is to make it take more time to steal by making it more difficult to access.

Christmas Tree and Poinsettia Care

Michael Owen

Everyone loves the smell of a freshly cut Christmas tree. Christmas tree selection is important, but what is often easily overlooked is the proper care of a cut Christmas tree while they’re indoors. After the perfect tree has been selected and brought home, before it is mounted in the base or stand, it is advised to make a new, flat cut about one-quarter inch to one-half inch above the original cut. This will help improve the trees water uptake by cutting away dry wood to expose fresh wood. Tests have shown that “V” cuts, angled cuts and conical cuts will not help the tree take up more water. In fact, exposing more of the tree than necessary could allow it to dry out faster.
