"To really understand the competition we were up against," Sevier said, "many of the other competing companies submitted entries prepared by external professionals who were hired for a particular campaign.

ISI will continue to han- dle all other administrative functions and provide trainers. Farmers should test for nitrates in summer forage Summer annual forage, also called feed or cane hay, needs to be tested for nitrates during a dry year like this. Stacy Campbell, Ellis County Extension agriculture agent, said mere is little doubt there will be nitrates in a large percentage of the bales fed this winter. However, the cost of getting a test is $10 and could save losing a cow or calf later on. Farmers should get samples from all areas of the field or from several fields. Although tonnage seems important, Campbell said, the bottom 6 inches of the stalk contain as much nitrate as the rest of the plant parts combined. Raise the cutter bar to limit the amount of stocks. Campbell said kochia and pigweeds can be just as high in nitrates as feed. Prussic acid poisoning also can be a problem when grazing cane type feeds. Now that the area has had some rain, farmers should wait a week or two before grazing or baling feed. In drought conditions, a week of favorable growing conditions after a rain generally is required for plants to reduce accumulated nitrate and prussic acid. Cattle, drought, economics focus of area meetings COLBY —- Economic and management considerations for cows and calves in response to drought conditions will be the topic of a meeting to be held at four sites Tuesday and Wednesday. "Producers are being forced to make many tough decisions given our extreme drought conditions," said Sandy Johnson, livestock specialist for Kansas State University Research and Extension in Colby. "We hope this meeting will help producers to be more informed when making plans to keep or sell calves or cows." Rodney Jones, KSU Research and Extension livestock production economist, will address the implications of the current economic and environmental conditions on management strategies for individual producers. Johnson will discuss management options to deal with the lack of pasture and typical winter feedstuffs along with problems associated with high nitrates and prussic acid in what feed is available. Meeting sites will be: • Bird City, American Legion Hall, 12:30 p.m. Tuesday • Norton, 4-H Building, 7 p.m. Tuesday • Osborne, Circle S Restaurant, 12:30 p.m. Wednesday • WaKeeney, Western Cooperative Electric Association Building, 6:30 p.m. Wednesday Meals are planned at some locations, so call Extension offices in Cheyenne County, (785) 332-3171, Norton County, (785) 877-5755, Osborne County, (785) 346-2521, or Trego County, (785) 743-6361, for more details and to preregister.
