Anaplasmosis Blocks For Beef Cattle

Monday, February 20th, 2017

Anaplasmosis BlocksAnaplasmosis Blocks for beef cattle are now available at J&N Feed and Seed.

Anaplasmosis  is a tick-borne, infectious disease of cattle that causes destruction of red blood cells.  The disease is caused by a minute parasite, Anaplasma marginale , found in the red blood cells of infected cattle. It can be transmitted from infected animals to healthy animals by
insects or by surgical instruments.

To help prevent the spread of anaplasmosis, we carry  free choice Anaplasmosis Blocks that aids in the control of active infection of anaplasmosis.  Use on beef and non-lactating dairy cattle over 700 pounds.

Texas Soil HealthThe Texas Soil Health Short Course will be held on February 22-23, 2017 at the Region 9 Education Service Center in Wichita Falls, Texas. The short course will offer the opportunity to gain a better understanding of soil properties including water infiltration, water holding capacity, and organic matter content. It is being hosted by the USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board (TSSWCB) and the Association of Texas Soil & Water Conservation Districts (ATSWCD).

The Texas Soil Health Short Course is designed to provide participants with research in dynamic soil properties and technical information about practical approaches to implementing a system to improve soil health. Conservation demonstrations and soil pits will showcase the functions of a healthy soil system and highlight its improved water infiltration, soil porosity, increase biological activity, and greater nutrient efficiency.

The cost of registration is $100 for the short course and $40 for the field tour. For more information, please click here or call 254-773-2250.
