Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast — November 13, 2017

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Ryan Martin 11-13-17An active pattern settles in over the next 10 days and will allow no more than 2 to 3 days of dry weather in-between weather systems. The map below shows cumulative rain totals from the next 3 systems over the coming 10 days. We outline these below.We have high pressure off to the west this morning, and are still dealing with some lingering rains in far eastern parts of the state. Those will move out and that high will slowly track into NW Ohio into this afternoon. This high will bring cooler air today, even with sunshine, but on the backside tomorrow, south winds should allow for some minor moderation. However, our thoughts from last week of temps potentially getting above normal are long gone, and a move back to normal will be about all we can do. Either way, sun the next two days will feel better than the dreary close to the weekend, or even the start to the day today in the east.Our next system arrives Wednesday afternoon and lingers through Wednesday overnight. It will bring some moisture with it, but not a huge amount. We are looking for that front to bring .05”-.3” over about 60% of the state. There can be some lingering light action past sunset Thursday morning in the east. But, this event looks to be losing its punch as it moves east. Our best precipitation develops near sunset Wednesday night over central Ohio.We should move back to some drier weather to finish Thursday and for the start of Friday. However, we have a much stronger frontal complex on the way to finish the week and start the weekend. Clouds will increase late Friday afternoon and light rains start by midnight Friday night. The rains intensify into Saturday morning and midday, with the potential for thunderstorms, particularly north and west Saturday afternoon. Rains will be the heaviest from mid-morning through sunset Saturday night over the state. All told, we like rains of .25”-.75” over 100% of the state, and we won’t rule out a push toward 1” in spots in far NW Ohio. Winds will become very gusty Saturday afternoon as well, likely averaging 15-30 mph, and those winds hold into Sunday.Weather condition go drier for Sunday and Monday, although Sunday we may be stuck with some lingering clouds over a large part of the state. Colder air comes in behind that system on the aforementioned strong northwest winds, and your coldest day will be Sunday.Clouds start to push back into the state next Tuesday ahead of another fast moving low coming up from the southwest. Rains may not start in earnest until midday Tuesday or even Tuesday afternoon, but will continue through the overnight and into Wednesday mid-morning. The rains are expected to total .05”-.5” over about 80% of the state. We do not expect enough drying for field work ahead of this event, and so these rains will just add to the delays as we move toward Thanksgiving. We should be dry for the balance of next Wednesday afternoon.For the extended period, we look to start it off dry for Thanksgiving Day itself. However the cause for this dryness on Thanksgiving Day will be a strong upper level, Canadian high diving into the eastern part of the US, which means we can see temps below normal with a cold shot for Thanksgiving Day. At this time, we are not going to talk this up as a massive cold shot, but will watch the evolution of the high and its track southeast. On the backside of the high we can see minor threat of precipitation for late on Black Friday (24th) into the 25th. Moisture totals do not look impressive, but we will keep an eye out for a few hundredths to a tenth or two over about 60% of the state.last_img read more

Managing Cows with Lost Calves

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Russ QuinnDTN Staff ReporterOMAHA (DTN) — Anyone who has ever owned a cow-calf herd has faced the tough decision on what to do with cows that have lost calves.Do you keep the cows and rebreed them? Or do you sell the cows, either immediately or put some weight on the cows and sell as a cull cow later?Because of the extreme weather in some locations this spring, many cow-calf producers are now in this particular situation. For some, age is the biggest factor, while for others, feed prices and/or cattle prices might factor in the decision.Depending on their philosophy, different producers consider other options on what to do with cows that lost calves.SEVERAL OPTIONSUniversity of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) Extension Beef Educator Aaron Berger, located in Kimball, Nebraska, recently co-wrote an article titled “What to do with Cows that have Lost Calves” — you can find the article at: https://beef.unl.edu/….Berger said there are three main options with cows that have lost calves.The first option would be to keep and expose cows to rebreeding for spring/fall calving. The second option would be to put weight on and sell as cull cows later. The third main option would be to sell cows immediately and replace with a cow-calf pair or wait to replace in the fall with a bred heifer/cow.A potential fourth option would be if you have a calf that is “extra” by way of twins, put one of these calves on a cow that lost a calf, which is often called grafting. Cheyenne Smith, who operates a ranch near Carmen, Idaho, said they will graft every twin they have.The advantages of grafting is it is less stress on the cow with twins, as now the cow will only have to support one calf. In addition, the cow without a calf is now productive again with a calf.“We often give a cow a second chance, especially if the loss of the calf really isn’t her fault,” Smith said. “This could be like a bad breeding choice, resulting in a really big or small birth weight, or extreme weather.”Smith likes to run cows through the chute and not let the cow see or smell the calf for at least three days. She runs this twice a day to let the calf nurse, she said. The grafts have about a 90% success rate, and this is mostly due to high maternal qualities in their herd, Smith said.Berger said grafting a calf onto cows that have lost calves is a good option, if the producer has the time and labor.With the uncooperative Nebraska weather this spring, calving losses were fairly high, and in many cases, the state’s cattle producers didn’t have any extra calves from their own herds to graft onto cows that lost calves.In cases where a producer can find calves from other operations to be grafted, the option should be considered, he said.There is some additional biosecurity risks with utilizing this option compared to using a calf from within one’s own herd, Berger said. Bringing calves from outside the operation can lead to a new disease being introduced.“In some situations, people will keep some older cows that they know that this will be their last calf and then take that calf from the old cow and graft it onto a younger cow that loses a calf,” Berger said. “So grafting a calf can be a good option.”CONSIDER CULL PRICECow-calf producers examine several different factors affecting their decisions when it comes to cows that lost calves.Larry Olberding, Jr., a Connell, Washington state rancher, said his general rule is if she doesn’t have a live calf to raise, the cow is going to go to town to be sold. There are some considerations he mulls over, including the cow’s flesh condition as well as the current pricing for culled cows, he said.There are usually three times that cull cattle prices will spike higher during the course of the year, he said. In his southeastern Washington state area, he sees higher cull prices two weeks before Memorial Day, the July 4 holiday and Labor Day holiday weekend.“The primary reason I sell them, if conditions are right, is I just can’t see that cow recovering the money lost over a whole year with zero production,” Olberding told DTN. “I really want my grass being used to appreciate in value.”There are opportunities to sell these cows and purchase cow-calf pairs, he said.Take this spring, for example. At the local cattle auction the week before Memorial Day, Olberding sold five cows that lost calves averaging 1,282 lbs. and averaged $67/cwt. He got $859/cow, took his money and bought three cow-calf pairs for $1,425/cow.Olberding was willing to trade five cows for these three cow-calf pairs because he considered he will have three more calves to sell this fall. If he had kept the five cows without calves, he would have zero income, he explained.AGE, FEED COSTS MATTERFor cow-calf producers in the Midwest, extreme winter weather caused higher-than-usual death loss. Producers in this region had to make some hard decisions on keeping cows or not.Karl Jacobson, who farms and has a cow-calf herd near Concordia, Kansas, said he did have some calving losses this spring. Age is a big factor for him, and he sold the older cows.“I also had several open cows in my fall calving herd as a colder-than-normal winter was some of the problem,” Jacobson said. “I also sold those open ones.”A lack of enough feed was the main reason he sold these open cows, Jacobson said. It took a lot of feed to make it through the frigid winter and he — like many Midwest producers — did not get to utilize corn stalks last fall with the wet weather delaying the fall harvest into winter.Bob Birdell, who farms and has a cow-calf herd near Stanberry, Missouri, said he attempts to consider age, feed availability and cull prices when deciding what to do with his cows who lost their calves.Other factors affecting the decision include the temperament of the cow, as well as the reason for losing the calf in the first place, such as a hard birth, which might affect future breeding. All of these dynamics goes into the thought process, he said.“We had to buy hay for the first time ever, so we had to be a little less forgiving when it comes to cash flow,” Birdell said.Russ Quinn can be reached at russ.quinn@dtn.comFollow him on Twitter @RussQuinnDTN(ES/BAS)© Copyright 2019 DTN/The Progressive Farmer.

Watch Out, Television: Pinterest Wants To Pin Down Your Ad Dollars

first_imgThe Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Tags:#“We’re Moving In#A&E Networks#DIY#e-commerce#FYI Network#online advertising#Pinterest#visual web Related Posts Pinterest is making the leap from the computer screen to the small screen—and television networks may not know what’s coming for them.The image-sharing site, which people use to search and discover objects of interest they can’t name or didn’t know they wanted, is revving up its advertising products at the same time it has struck its first notable placement in a TV show.It’s not the first social network to explore partnerships with television shows. But where Twitter and Facebook have sought a role in news and live events to cement their centrality in information sharing, Pinterest may be able to make serious bank on its TV placements. In the long run, if it’s successful, it may steal business from the TV networks it’s partnering with.Pinterest And TV—A Not-So-Odd CoupleFYI, a channel owned by A&E Networks—which you may recognize as the home of Storage Wars and Duck Dynasty—is creating a Pinterest TV series, “We’re Moving In.” While Pinterest is the inspiration for the project, it isn’t a formal partnership as much as a use of Pinterest to which the social network has given its blessing. (Say Media, which owns ReadWrite, operates Biography.com and LifetimeMoms in partnership with A&E.)On “We’re Moving In,” blended families, married couples, and roommates turn to Pinterest to plan and design new spaces together. They’ll take virtual inspiration to hardware and home-decor stores, and turn a collaborative Pinterest board into reality. “Pinterest is a visual discovery tool people use to find the things they love and go do those things in real life,” said Everett Katigbak, a brand manager at Pinterest, in FYI’s announcement. “‘We’re Moving In’ is a creative look at people taking that mission offline.”Let’s Take It Offline (And Go Shopping)That statement suggests that online activity on Pinterest—pinning images of objects to boards and sharing them—somehow stands apart from offline activities. Of course it doesn’t—if anything, Katigbak is being strategically modest.Pinterest just launched a new phase of its business, with a paid test of Promoted Pins. Gap, Lululemon, Kraft and other prominent brands are participating, paying Pinterest to expose relevant pins to a broader set of users.Big brands have traditionally advertised on television, a proven way of driving consumers into stores to buy things. But as Google showed, it’s far easier to establish a connection between someone searching for an object, seeing an ad online, and clicking to purchase it. That accountability is a big part of what has driven billions and billions of dollars of advertising Google’s way.Pinterest can now do something Google can’t: Connecting consumers who have some notion of what they’re looking for but can’t name it in a set of keywords with an advertiser’s product.Television executives have long dreamed of a click-to-buy button: See something on a popular TV show, click a button on your remote, and get it shipped to your home. Aside from home-shopping channels, that’s never really worked out.Imagine, though, if every show about home improvement, gardening, crafting and fashion had a corresponding pinboard on Pinterest. (This is not a stretch: Manyalready do.) Pinterest could be the place where consumers go to find all the items they see online—and it could take the lion’s share of advertising dollars associated with driving those purchases.Twitter and Facebook have stumbled trying to establish a similar link. Most social commerce efforts don’t work because people want to connect with friends or celebrities, not buy things. But as a leader in the Visual Web, Pinterest is a very different beast from most social networks.The Trojan HorseIt’s no surprise that people aren’t talking up this scenario. Pinterest has never stopped surprising the technology industry. It was the network nobody “got.” In 2012, it became the fastest-growing social network ever, simply because it appealed to an extremely underserved audience in social media: middle-aged, middle-American moms. Maybe app inventors don’t consider them to be early adopters, but they have a lot of purchasing power. See also: Mindboggling Facts That Will Make You Care About PinterestThe community has expanded significantly from that original audience, but Pinterest’s heartland remains the Midwest. Eighty percent of users are still women. Pinterest’s most popular topics are crafts and recipes. And those just happen to be the kind of people who A&E and other networks target for advertiser-friendly shopping shows.Pinterest’s TV EdgeThere’s been lotsoftalk about partnerships between social media and TV, but not much in terms of concrete business results.In a time when the Internet allows for instant interactivity, TV producers have been looking to social media to add a sense of community to TV. But so far, with Facebook and Twitter, it’s all about joining a conversation. When TV shows share Twitter hashtags or Facebook fan pages, they’re not adding to the conversation—they’re simply moving it somewhere else. Unlike most social networks, though, Pinterest is about actual things, not nebulous socializing, which gives the producers physical objects to show on TV. This is an edge unique to the Visual Web. “We’re Moving In” has the potential to let viewers visit the show’s actual pinboards and follow along in a meaningful way. TV has never had a “click to buy” option as effortless and seamless as the Internet’s. Pinterest could be that missing link. Imagine this: viewers watch an episode of “We’re Moving In,” and follow the episode’s pinboard. From there they have a direct line to respond to it—or click to instantly acquire anything they just saw. Pinterest could be the missing link between TV advertisements and viewer purchases. And like Google, it could capture a large part of the advertising business connected with this commerce.The fact that Pinterest is about objects to begin with has made it attractive to brands, which drive an estimated 30 percent of the network’s total traffic is driven by brands, who generally consider the site to be the Internet’s gift to Web commerce.Let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Pinterest has just begun offering Promoted Pins, opening up paid advertising for a very small set of approved advertisers. And it has just recently started hiring salespeople—whom it delicately calls “partner managers.”Still, Pinterest has an intriguing opportunity ahead of it with television. It may need to come up with a clever way to split TV-driven revenues with the networks, or show that it can drive large audiences back to television. “We’re Moving In” is an experiment for a reason.And if TV-driven pins take off? It wouldn’t be the first time the social network has surprised us.   lauren orsinicenter_img Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verificationlast_img read more

FINALS SUMMARY- SENIORS NTL 2004

first_imgMens 30 years: By Rachel Moyle The Mens 30 years final was the mirror image of 2003, with the Sydney Scorpions and the Sydney Mets facing off again. Determined to reverse last year’s result, the Scorpion’s case was strengthened when Mets’ star and Australian Mixed Captain Tony El-Takchi was sidelined in their semi final with a knee injury. Within one minute both sides had scored once and excitement lifted about the speed and intensity already being shown. With beautiful passing, stepping and chasing from players like Garry Sonda and Jason Yee, who were part of the Mets winning Mens Open side earlier in the week, the Mets came back from a 3-1 deficit just before half time to take it to 3-3. John Moujali and Scott Danswan scored to give the Mets a 5-3 lead, with Danswan running the length of the field to cross the line. Jason Yee’s no-look pass was once again the catalyst allowing Michael Fahat to cross the line for a 6-3 lead. Yee’s passing was a game-long highlight. Coach Michael McDonald was certainly relieved when the siren sounded. The Sydney Mets were back-to-back Champions and also the Champion Permit for 2004 after claiming five titles between the 20 years, Open and Senior Divisions. “This is great”, said McDonald, “There’s been a lot of tough competition out here this week and it’s a relief to have won this, the guys have done really well this week, they were the best team, they deserve it.” Player of the Final: Garry Sonda- Sydney Mets Player of the Series: Tony El-Takshi – Sydney Mets Mens 35 years: By Rachel Moyle The Sydney Scorpions were favourites to take out the title in this division, having several past and present Australian representatives out on the field. Ex-Australian player and current coach of the 20 years Mens side, Sam Ayoub, started well for the Scorpions, combining with another World Cup representative in Jeff Cheung for the first score in just 2 minutes. Jeff Cheung then scored again off a great step to beat the defender to give the Scorpions a 2-0 lead and shock the Mets with a quick start. The Mets looked slow in attack and headed continually to the right, but after pushing forward and passing left, they crossed for their first touchdown and Kevin Thorsby brought the score to 2-1. After a clash of heads, Kevin Thorsby then had to leave the field for treatment with blood pouring from a cut under his eye. The defense picked up just before half time, with the Scorpions looking like they would hold the Mets away from their line. John Schembri somehow managed to make it across though and it looked like the Scorpions would take just a 3-2 lead into half time. A brilliant pass from David Cheung put his other brother Michael across the line right on the stroke of half time though and the Scorpions took a 4-2 lead. When the Mets scored immediately after half time, the match lifted in intensity and the crowd sensed the match tightening. The Sydney Scorpions had other ideas though and kicked into another gear, piling on four touchdowns in the last ten minutes. David Cheung led the way with his Player of the Final performance and a great touchdown stepping his way past three players before diving over the line to seal the match 8-3. Player of the Final: David Cheung- Sydney Scorpions Player of the Series: John Samin- ADF Warriors Mens 40 years: By Rachel Moyle: In the Mens 40 years final the local Northern Eagles were out to claim the title for the first time in NTL history. Standing in their way however, were the ACT, the defending Champions and team that had beaten the then-undefeated Sydney Scorpions in the semi final. The Northern Eagles started well but beautiful passing from Captain and experienced Australian representative, Gary Lawless, kept the ACT in the game. Player of the Final and also Player of the Series, Mark Jansson, put the Eagles in front right on half time with an incredibly quick run past three ACT defenders to put the ball down. Jansson continued his good form in the second half with another touchdown and several more good runs and passing. With just five minutes to go and the score at 4-3, the ACT dropped an almost certain touchdown, with the Northern Eagles capitalising to take a 5-3 lead. Tony Cox sealed the win for the local team, intercepting a loose pass and running the length of the field for his touchdown. For the ACT and retiring Captain Gary Lawless, the loss was disappointing, but for the Northern Eagles it was the culmination of many long and hard years of work. “A lot of us have been playing together for years”, said Captain/Coach Paul Seward. “We’ve been contenders in the past, but we have never won it. This is the first time we’ve done it and it’s great, I’m just so proud of the boys.” Player of the Final: Mark Jansson- Northern Eagles Player of the Series: Mark Jansson- Northern Eagles Mens 45 years: By Lisa Plummer The Mens 45 years final saw the Sydney Mets come from second in their pool to defeat first placed Northern Eagles. The Mets nearly went through on their first set of six touches and the Eagles answered back just as strongly, indicating the crowd should be prepared for an exciting match. The Mets scored early on, just five minutes into the first half. Wasted opportunities and careless penalties frustrated players on both sides throughout the first half, and the Mets went into half time leading 1-0. Whatever coach John Delpech said to his players at half time worked, and Lindsay Delpech made a great run from dummy half, putting Ray McIlhoney over the line. While John Delpech nervously paced the sideline, his team continued to dominate the try line with Wayne Brennan crossing the line to take the Mets to a 3-0 lead. With just five minutes remaining the Mets’ Bob Behnke crossed the line to seal victory for his side. The Eagles finally put two touchdowns on the board after Bram Carey and Tony Webb scored to leave the score at 4-2 at fulltime. Mets coach, John Delpech praised the strength and performance of the Eagles but “this time we were way too good on the day”. Player of the Final: Lindsay Delpech- Sydney Mets Player of the Series: Mick McAll- Southern Suns Mens 50 years: by Rachel Moyle The Mens 50 years final saw the Gold Coast Sharks come from fourth in their pool to face the defending Champions, the Hunter-Western Hornets. Dave Bull set the game alight for the Hornets and within the first few minutes had scored two touchdowns. The Hornets started the second half with a 3-0 and continued to build on that as the match went on. The defending Champions had a 7-0 lead before the Gold Coast Sharks managed to register a score, but when they did it was a good one, with Ted Bryant bringing the Sharks fans alive with a brilliant effort. In the end it was the Hornets with a 8-1 victory, coach Kim Miller wanting to congratulate the Sharks. “They did a great job to make the grand final from fourth position, but we really lifted in the final, everyone played well and it was just a real team effort.” Player of the Final: Michael Gallagher- Hunter-Western Hornets Player of the Series: Colin Thomas- Sydney Mets Womens 30 years: By Lisa Plummer The Womens 30s final saw Sydney Scorpions taking victory over the Sunwest Razorbacks six touchdowns to four. Razorbacks Teena Jennings crossed the line in the first two mins of play, followed by a second try by Sue Ginns not long after. The Razorbacks drove the ball strong and hard while simple mistakes saw the Scorpions dominated early in the match. Dianne Pierce put the Razorbacks over the line again, stretching their lead to 3-0. A dive over the line by Maria Sonda half way through the first half put the Scorpions back into the game. Great defence lifted the spirits of the Scorpions and Cristy Hornery crossed the line. Within just a few minutes, great hands saw winger Christine Beynon cross the line, and the scores were tied at 3-3. Kim Melville was the next to cross the line for the Scorpions and tight defence saw them hold out the Razorbacks for the rest of the first half. The Scorpions came out firing, with Christine Beynon scoring her second try of the match in the first set of six of the second half. After a tough decision by the referees, the Scorpions scored again, making the score 6-3. Strong defence and attack saw the Scorpions clearly dominate the Razorbacks throughout the second half of the match, and a runaway try by Razorbacks Toni Brown saw the score rest at 6-4 at full-time. Scorpions Womens 30s manager and Tournament Leader Gary Croft was happy with the way his team performed. “It’s a great honour to be involved with such a great group of players, and to see players like these ladies play the game in such good spirit.” Player of the Final: Sue Hamill- Sydney Scorpions Player of the Series: Tracey Elliot- Sydney Scorpions Womens 35 years: By Lisa Plummer An outstanding hat trick of tries to the Southern Suns Annette Mounsey saw the Suns take out the title in the Womens 35s division over the Hunter Western Hornets. The Suns scored their first try of the match after just three minutes with the Hornets hitting back after a great dummy by Michelle Brown saw her put Gai Taylor over the line. Annette Mounsey’s first try came with under a minute left to go in the second half, and on the half time siren, Suns Captain and Coach, Allyson Fisher crossed the line to make the score 3-1 going into half time. The second half saw wasted opportunities for both teams, and Suns player Jill McGuiness put Annette Mounsey through for her second try early on. Strong, tireless defence by the Suns held the Hornets out and their fast driving of the ball saw them and Allyson Fisher once again put Suns player Annette Mounsey over the line, to secure the full time score at 5-1. Great sportsmanship was shown at the end of the game and Player of the Final and also Player of the Series, Allyson Fisher was relieved for her girls. “Thank god, finally!”. Player of the Final: Alison Fisher- Southern Suns Player of the Series: Alison Fisher- Southern Suns Womens 40 years: By Rachel Moyle The Womens 40 years final saw last year’s Champions, the local Northern Eagles out to defend their title against the undefeated Sydney Scorpions. The Scorpions opened the scoring quickly, with Carol Furlonge crossing in the first minute of the game, while the Northern Eagles took several minutes to put pace into their attack. Gabby Whelan took advantage of the Eagle’s slow start and dished off well to Mary Wachman for their second touchdown before the Northern Eagles hit back with a touchdown to Karen Mooney. After half time it was a complete Scorpions affair, after the constant fumbling by the Northern Eagles and the Scorpion’s good running allowed another three touchdowns. The Sydney Scorpions claimed the title with a 5-1 victory and Coach Paul Malcolm praised the effort of his team. “We were expecting a very tough game today, we were close in the minor rounds, but the girls just put in such a good team effort”, he said. For the players, it was a win for their captain, Judy Malcolm, who had been unable to take the field in the final.

High school graduation is considered essential for long-term success and independence. The Foundation believes that the best way to help these students is to provide them the support and encouragement necessary to empower them to take charge of their destiny, beginning with completion of high school. The Foundation was established by the Santee Lakeside Rotary Club to raise funds to provide incentives to students that will help them to graduate. The incentive is a two-year scholarship to a college or an accredited business/trade school of their choice if they graduate with their class.For more information, click here.
