CRP hay can be used as one source of roughage for helping overwinter the cattle, but it is not without some challenges that need to be addressed to use it with minimal negative impacts to the condition and health of the cattle.

Postponed tax payments

If your real estate tax bill qualifies, you are given the option of paying a first installment on or before Jan. 31 and the second installment or postponed installment being due on or before July 31. Notices are not sent to remind you to make the installment payment by July 31. You should check your receipt/payment record for the amount paid on the first installment to be sure that your second installment amount is correct. If you paid an amount different than the amount shown on the payment stub then the second installment payment stub amount would be different.

Those lazy days of summer we wish for all year may be setting the stage for your child to gain weight. That was the finding of research published in the American Journal of Public Health, which showed that kids often put on added pounds during the summer.

First bird in Wisconsin tests positive for West Nile Virus this year
Thursday, June 27, 2013 10:10 AM

State and county health officials announced that a dead crow found in Washington County has tested positive for West Nile Virus. This is the first bird to test positive for the virus in Wisconsin this year. Although very few mosquitoes actually carry West Nile virus, infected birds serve as an early warning that the virus is present in the area and that people should be more vigilant in protecting themselves against mosquito bites.

West Nile Virus is spread to people through the bite of an infected mosquito. Mosquitoes become infected with West Nile Virus by feeding on infected birds, and then potentially transmit the virus by biting other animals or people.

Waushara County EMS is always striving to find ways to serve you as a community better.

Living in a rural community, we are routinely transferring patients that are very sick to hospitals for specialty care. As an organization, we are in the process of sending all of our full-time paramedics through a Critical Care Paramedic Program.

Currently, we have eight paramedics that have completed this course and the rest will be attending in the near future. This will enable us to provide the highest level of pre-hospital care to the critically sick patients.
