Exterior Property Maintenance Is A Priority For The City

SHELBY- The City of Shelby is gearing up to make the community look welcoming to residents and visitors this summer.

One way the administration is working toward making the community look appealing is through exterior property maintenance.

Project Coordinator Joe Gies explained one of the main issues the city faced every year during the warmer months involved residents mowing their grass.

Ohio Farm Bureau Funds Richland County Farm To Plate Program


RICHLAND‚ÄąCOUNTY - The Ohio Farm Bureau has funding opportunities for local programming in different program areas, both as grants prior to the events, and achievement awards to recognize outstanding programs recently completed.

The Richland County Farm to Plate program is in the Grow and Know focus area, which is outreach and education. The 2017 Farm to Plate series was awarded 1st Place in the state achievement award at the Ohio Farm Bureau Annual Meeting and also received a bonus for future programming.

Cow Genetic Testing Helps Farmers Develop Herds

For almost everyone, milk is milk-it comes out of cows but is most often found in the dairy case at the supermarket or convenience store. Most people consume it with no problems, but for others it can cause unpleasant digestion issues.

These issues have motivated some people to switch to goat’s milk, soy or other artificial milk or just avoid milk altogether. Today, however, there is another alternative that is just starting to gain popularity.

Milk is a good source of protein, of course, and one of these proteins is called beta casein, which makes up about 30 percent of the protein in the milk. A1 and A2 are two variations of beta casein, differing by just one amino acid....Read More
