The Meaning of
Gravestone Carvings
To walk through a cemetery is to
walk through history.
“A gravestone is something tan-
gible to remember that person by.
When I drive by a cemetery, the
first thing I look at is the older sec-
tion. I’m curious about the style
and design of the gravestones and
the names on the gravestones,”
said Virginia Hanson, archivist at
the State Archives of the South
Dakota State Historical Society, lo-
cated in the Cultural Heritage Cen-
ter in Pierre. She often lectures
about genealogy and the meaning
of gravestones.
Wood was a common material
used to mark graves from the
1840s to about 1910 in South
Dakota.
“People often ask me why we
have so many unmarked burial
sites. A reason is the markers pos-
sibly were made of wood. Wood only
lasts so long,” Hanson said.
Names cut in wood became less
visible as the wood weathered.
ized the open gateway from earth
to heaven. A broken ring meant the
family circle was severed. A lamb
was often seen on the gravestones
of those under 16 and meant inno-
cence or youth. An inverted torch
meant sudden death or the sudden
loss of an adult life.
Symbols often reflected member-
ship in an organization or military
service.
A Sears and Roebuck Catalog
from about 1912 offered different
tombstones and styles that people
could order.
“So if you see several stones with
the same pattern, there is a good
chance they were ordered through
the local market,” Hanson said.
The meaning of gravestone carv-
ings has changed over the years.
Wheat or corn stalks once symbol-
ized ripe old age, but now it can
mean the deceased was a farmer,
Hanson said.
“Since 1950, with modern etch-
ing, you see about anything as far
as tombstone markings -- rodeo
scenes, airplanes, farm machinery,
or a portrait of a person,” Hanson
said.
Motion sensors make it possible
for a recording to turn on when
people walk by the gravestone and
light sensitive lamps turn on when
the sun sets.
“Back 100 years ago you
wouldn’t think of putting a lamp at
a grave, but now, a light at the
gravesite is a modern symbol of re-
membering the spirit of that per-
son,” Hanson said.

tion, the nonprofit fundraising

Some wooden markers were con-
sumed in prairie fires.
Large rocks were also used to
mark the location of graves.
Some of the earliest gravestones
in South Dakota were made of local
stone, with the name of the de-
ceased and year of death carved by
hand into the stone. Symbols were
added if the family could afford it.
“Carvers charged by the letter,
so if there was a lot of carving in
the gravestone, that was quite an
investment,” Hanson said.
Many of the symbols carved on a
gravestone reflected the national-
ity of the deceased.
A Celtic cross might symbolize
someone who came from Ireland or
Scotland, and an iron cross might
denote the German-Russian peo-
ple.
Some of the common carvings on
tombstones in South Dakota were
flowers, gates, butterflies and bro-
ken rings. Flowers symbolized con-
dolences, grief or sorrow, while
closed roses meant brevity of
earthly existence. A gate symbol-

the activities to be undertaken to
meet the needs.
At 8:00 the commissioners will
hold a second hearing to discuss
the future of providing driver’s li-
censing service -- whether the
county should continue providing
the service. Input will be taken
from not only Jackson County, but
surrounding counties.
Since entering into the agree-
ment with the South Dakota Dept.
of Public Safety in 2004, many of
the state wide services have been
reduced or eliminated across the
state.
Jackson County receives $5.00
per license fee and the workload
has increased throughout the
years. The county is considering
hiring additional staff for the in-
creased workload.
People travel a long distance to
obtain their licenses in Jackson
County, which is available Monday
through Friday. The next nearest
place to renew or obtain a license is
Murdo, Mission or Martin; some of
these sites only offer the service on
limited days.
The State has denied Jackson
County’s request for allowing the
county to retain one-half of the li-
cense fee.
According to a legal notice, “If
funding is not found, the commis-
sioners are considering discontinu-
ing the services.”
For persons unable to attend this
meeting, written comments may be
sent to: Jackson County Commis-
sion, PO Box 280, Kadoka, SD

At a special Jackson County
Commissioner’s meeting on Friday,
June 29, the commissioners will be
seeking public opinion on two
items.
The first agenda item at 7:00
p.m. will be for public discussion on
submitting an application to the
State of South Dakota for a Com-
munity Development Block Grant
in order to assist with the financing
of a library project. The county ex-
pects to apply for up to $515,000
from the CDBG Community Proj-
ects Account to be used for the pro-
posed project which will cost
approximately $600,000.
The purpose of the hearing is to
receive comments regarding the
application from members of the
county and to assess the commu-
nity development needs of the
Jackson County seeking input
regarding fate of license service

June 27 through July 5 in South
Dakota. Fireworks may be dis-
charged in the state during that
same period, unless local ordi-
nances set tighter limits. Cities
may adopt more stringent limits on
use of fireworks. It’s best to check
local ordinances and regulations.
Fireworks are a traditional part
of the Independence Day celebra-
tion, but every year there are a few
injuries and some unintentional
fires. This year, conditions across
much of South Dakota are ex-
tremely dry, and everyone needs to
cooperate in using common sense
with their fireworks.
Don’t combine different types of
fireworks or try to explode home-
made ones. Keep a source of water
handy and never try to relight a
dud. While sparklers are popular
with younger children, they can
cause painful burns and should be
used with adult supervision.
Have a happy and safe holiday.
With retail sale of fireworks be-
ginning on Wednesday, June 27 in
South Dakota, State Fire Marshal
Paul Merriman is asking residents
to play it safe this July 4th.
Mayor Harry Weller has an-
nounced that it is illegal to set off
fireworks within the Kadoka city
limits. However, he said, fireworks
will be allowed at the baseball field
on July 3 and July 4, providing
there is no other activities going on.

Read Luke 5:1-11
Decisions we consider insignificant may actually be
important in God's eyes. Obedience in the small details
prepares the believer for obedience in all things.
Today's passage shows that Peter experienced a gentle
first lesson in following the Lord.
Peter's initial interaction with Christ seemed insignificant. We can assume Jesus asked Peter for the
use of his boat, which meant that the weary fisherman put aside his cleanup duties in order to steer the
craft for an itinerant preacher. It was a small decision, but the reward was noteworthy. Peter had a front-
row seat for the message Jesus proclaimed to the crowd on the beach.
The future disciple was convinced of Christ's authority because of what he heard. Therefore, he obeyed
Jesus' second request to let down the nets for a catch, even though doing so contradicted everything he
knew about fishing. The results were miraculous--a catch so great that a second boat had to come and
take part of the haul.
Jesus was gently easing Peter into a place of absolute obedience. The fisherman's brief but compelling
history of submitting to the Lord's will and experiencing His blessing convinced him that giving up every-
thing to follow Christ was the wisest choice. The rewards for that decision are both innumerable and im-
measurable.
Peter's experience of increasingly demanding calls to obedience and sacrifice isn't unique. That's how
the Father teaches His children to follow His will. So don't assume a decision is insignificant--God is set-
ting you on a course to fulfill His good purpose for your life. Choose to obey Him always.

Dear Editor:
I am grateful that a Kadoka city
council member stopped by and
straightened me out on some
things. Seems that some on the city
council are adamant that the Com-
prehensive Plan is “our plan”.
However, I understand that en-
vironmental engineers, Schu-
macher, Paul & Nohr, authored it
at substantial expense to the city
using statistics furnished by local
officials.
First, all those figures quoted in
the proposed Comprehensive Plan
amounting to millions of dollars
are very stale. The council has
known this for some time. Anyone
that has contracted knows there is
a great difference between what is
estimated cost and what is a bid
basis. Subsequent inflation has fur-
ther has increased costs. Six mil-
lion may not cover the expansive
dreams of city planners.
That is only a part of the vague
parts of the Plan, as follows:
Page 6, “A comprehensive plan
impacts not only persons living in
the study area, but also those resi-
dents residing and working
throughout the Kadoka area”.
On page 7 “zoning districts” are
mentioned without specifics.
Chapter 4, Page 17. “To sustain
an environmental strategy that
supports an interworking relation-
ship between the physical and built
environment and also protect the
air and water quality to ensure
public health and safety for the res-
idents of Kadoka”. Lawyers would
call this “boilerplate” and it sounds
eerily familiar from another com-
prehensive plan I have read by the
same authors.
Page 19. “For all new construc-
tion in Kadoka, planning and engi-
neering must be used as tools to
mitigate against hazards posed by
hilly topography, high degree of
slope and soil instability”.
Chapter 6, Page 28. “Land use
defines the physical landscape and
provides justification for zoning in
a community”.
Page 30. “A city is obligated to
assess its development constraints
when planning for future growth in
adjoining areas. They must coordi-
nate with the county on all matters
concerning annexation. Comment:
We need more information on an-
nexation.
Further down, same page. With
the current comprehensive plan
only focusing on land within the
City's incorporated limits the com-
mission felt that combining the in-
dustrial district with an
Agricultural designation would
simplify the future land use map.
See comment above.
Page 31. All lands being an-
nexed by the city shall be placed in
a No Use designation till the City's
Board of Adjustment is able to con-
duct an investigation and study of
the proposed land use of the exist-
ing area. For this reason, the Com-
mission felt the future land use
map should contain lands outside
the City's Limits to be classified
under this designation”.
Comment: Sort of like the
rancher who didn't want to own all
the land - just that joining his prop-
erty.
Page 46. “ - - - - extraterritorial
jurisdiction for the purposes of pro-
moting health, safety, morals and
general welfare of the community”.
Comment: Define “extraterritor-
ial”? Isn't it a stretch to have con-
trol of “morals” in a comprehensive
land use plan?
Nancy Pelosi's is famous for say-
ing, “We have to pass the bill to
find out what is in it”. In my opin-
ion the goal is a scheme to wrest
control of Kadoka from the elected
city officials. Later we will find
what the E.P.A. and other ap-
pointed government functionaries
in Washington D.C. and Pierre
think is good for us.
The plan is certainly compre-
hensively confusing.

Dear Editor,
I agree with Mr. Freeman 100%.
I am against zoning and Horizons.
When a person can go on another
person’s property and tell them
what to do and how to do it. It is my
opinion that this is communism.

John Robert Whitford______________
John Robert Whitford, 81, of Hot
Springs, SD, was born March 28,
1931, in Carter, SD, to Frank and
Clara (Craw) Whitford. John
passed away Thursday, June 14,
2012 at the Hot Springs VA Med-
ical Center after a very brief ill-
ness.
After John attended grade
school in Carter, he attended high
school in Winner, SD, and gradu-
ated in the class of 1949. John had
just begun attending Black Hills
Teachers College when he was
drafted into the U.S. Army for the
Korean War in 1950. John was sent
to both basic training, advanced
basic training and when he was
done was loaned to the French For-
eign Legion. He was stationed in
Fontainebleau France and was a
secretary for the head of NATO at
the time.
Upon John's discharge he re-
turned to college at Black Hills
Teachers College where he met his
future bride, Irene Cummings.
They were married May 29, 1955,
and made their home in Spearfish
Vets-ville while he finished his un-
dergraduate degrees in education,
history, and English. John taught
at Winner High School and at-
tended graduate school in the sum-
mers at the University of South
Dakota. During his tenure in Win-
ner, his daughter Mary was born.
He achieved a master's degree in
psychology in 1961.
John received a scholarship to
the University of North Dakota to
pursue his doctorate in psychology
and completed most of the program
before choosing to leave in fear of
not being employable in school sys-
tems at that time with such a de-
gree. John's daughter Margaret
was born during the family's resi-
dence in North Dakota.
In 1962 John accepted a position
with the Belvidere School where he
remained until 1965 when he ac-
cepted a job as superintendent of
the Oelrichs, SD, School District.
He remained at Oelrichs until 1980
as the superintendent as well as
teaching French. Their son Mark
was born while they lived in Oel-
richs. It was while living in Oel-
richs that John underwent
emergency medical technician
training and was a founding mem-
ber of the Oelrichs Ambulance As-
sociation.
In 1980 John accepted a position
as school guidance counselor and
psychological tester in Martin, SD.
He also became involved with the
Ambulance Association in Martin
which was much more active and
diverse and allowed him to expand
and develop his skills.
John and Irene moved back to
Oelrichs in 1989 and he accepted a
position as school counselor and
tester at Loneman Day School and
the Loneman branch of OLC. He
worked there until his retirement.
After his health began to decline,
John and Irene made their home in
Hot Springs. Irene passed away on
January 8, 2008. In 2009, John
moved to the South Dakota State
Veterans Home in Hot Springs
where he made his home until his
passing.
John was a voracious reader and
enjoyed creative writing and draw-
ing. He enjoyed growing flowers
and gardening. He greatly enjoyed
spending time with his grandchil-
dren and great-grandchildren.
John was also a member of the
American Legion and VFW over
the years.
Surviving John are his brother,
Jerry Whitford of Ashland, NE,
daughters, Mary (Russel) Bledsoe
and Margaret (Robert) Evans of
Hot Springs and his son, Mark of
Seattle, WA. He also leaves behind
five grandchildren and three great-
grandchildren. He was preceded in
death by his wife, Irene, and his
parents.
Visitation was held from 5 p.m.
to 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 19, at Mc-
Colley's Chapel of the Hills in Hot
Springs.
Funeral services were held at
11:00 a.m. Wednesday, June 20,
2012 at McColley's Chapel of the
Hills with Pastor Morris Nelson of-
ficiating. Interment will follow at
the Evergreen Cemetery in Hot
Springs.
A memorial has been estab-
lished at the Hot Springs Public Li-
brary. In lieu of flowers please
make a donation directly to the li-
brary in John's name.
Arrangements have been placed
in the care of McColley's Chapel of
the Hills in Hot Springs. Written
condolences may be made at

Reception from 2 to 5 p.m. CST
No gifts please
I’ve been being a humanitarian
today. Wait. Make that “bugitar-
ian.” I’ve been giving aid and succor
to bugs, not humans. As it hap-
pened, I was drinking some coffee
on the deck this morning and no-
ticed a little black beetle upside
down on a steel plate by the door. As
you have probably observed, beetles
have trouble righting themselves
once they land on their backs on a
flat surface.
There he was ineffectually paw-
ing the air trying to find something
to grab so he could turn himself
over. There was nothing available.
Eventually I tired of watching this
hopeless situation and held a little
stick next to him that he could
grasp, which he had the sense to do.
I then placed him on the deck
where he promptly fell over onto his
back again and started boxing the
air. “Enough of this,” I said, and
booted the fellow off into the grass
where at least there were more
things for him to clutch in case he
flipped over again.
What puzzles me somewhat with
beetles is that, as far as I know,
they have wings. Why can’t they lift
themselves enough with one wing
to flip over. Maybe their wings only
move in tandem so one can’t be
moved by itself. The other possibil-
ity, of course, is that beetles are so
extremely stupid that it never oc-
curs to them to use their wings for
anything other than flying. It’s a
poser, but there you are.
Normally speaking, I have no
real concern for bugs. If they insist
on smashing themselves against
my windshield, I don’t really care
except for grumbling that I can’t see
out the window very well after they
smear themselves all over it. I par-
ticularly have no concern for
grasshoppers and often purposely
step on them. Crickets are similar.
I especially despise having crickets
in the house since they will sooner
or later start chirping and driving
me crazy. They are also frustrating
in that they seem able to jump
every time just as you try to step on
them so you look fairly silly stomp-
ing around the room in pursuit.
In this regard, I tend to think of
a neighbor we had near our house
in town when I was going to school
there. We called her Aunt Ellen al-
though she was not a relative, and
she was a fairly thin, elderly Nor-
wegian lady. She hated crickets and
always tried to step on them when
she noticed them. That, as we said,
is tricky, so seeing a little white-
haired lady stomping across the
room tended to be somewhat hu-
morous. She would be sputtering at
the same time which made it even
funnier. Now, when I go high-step-
ping across the room after a cricket,
I almost always think of Aunt Ellen
who was actually a very sweet lady
when she wasn’t fussed up about
black hopping insects.
Wife Corinne will also be a bugi-
tarian from time to time but mostly
when it comes to ladybugs. She
likes them a lot and has even been
known to order a bag of them to
help get rid of harmful insects on
her fruit trees and other plants. If a
ladybug gets in the house, Corinne
will usually move it to a safe spot
where it won’t be accidentally
stepped on or otherwise harmed.
Flies and millers she doesn’t care
for and swats them every chance
she gets, but ladybugs are her
friends.
Bees, generally speaking, have
me in a muddle. I don’t like them
buzzing around my head because
they are capable of delivering a
nasty sting. On the other hand, I re-
spect the fact that they are useful
in pollination and making honey. I
just try to stay out of their way and
let them get on with life. I do grum-
ble when beekeepers plant a bunch
of hives by the road because you’re
going to get a smeary windshield
every time you drive by, even if you
reduce your speed quite a bit. The
silly critters always fly right at
windshield level and seem unable
to alter their flight plan for vehi-
cles.
Well, as you can see, helping
bugs can be unrewarding due in
part to their lack of sense or their
inability to alter the way they do
things. You will find humanitarian-
ism to be similar in that some peo-
ple simply lack the ability to do well
in life, either through lack of sense,
poor upbringing, or maybe an ad-
diction. If you help them once, you
may have to help them again and
again. That’s the way I thought it
probably was with my black beetle.
Later in the day, though, either the
one I’d helped or a close relative
was in the same place on the steel
plate and ineffectually pawing the
air as in the morning. Before I could
rush to his aid, however, he some-
how finally managed to right him-
self. Maybe there is hope for beetles
and possibly for people as well. I
like to think so.

Capsule Sermons
Last Monday, Jesse Ferguson
went to Rapid City on business. Ed
Ferguson was in Kadoka and Di-
mock Friday on business. Those
helping Ed celebrate Father’s Day
Sunday were Pete and Marla Fer-
guson, Irene Kaufman, Gene and
Margie Popkes and Jes Ferguson.
He received calls also from son Cole
Ferguson and daughter, Cora
Brickman, from Rapid City, who
were unable to attend.
Jim and Marjorie Letellier were
in Philip and Kadoka on business
Monday of last week. Tuesday Gary
and Alice White of Ebart, Michi-
gan, arrived with their two foster
sons, Damian and Jeremiah, and
that began a number of days of vis-
iting and activities while they were
here. Sue Larson of Rapid City and
Julie Letellier of Kilgore came to
visit with them, as did Maxine Al-
lard, JoAnn Letellier and Ray and
Gail Berry. Damian and Jeremiah
wanted to sleep outside in a tent
while here, but the weather drove
them inside all but one night. The
same was true about the picnic
planned by the creek, the third
time it was planned it finally hap-
pened. Gary and Alice were im-
pressed with how clean and neat
the town of Norris was. Friday they
headed for Pierre to visit with the
Beckwith family.
Saturday the Hershey State
Races were held in Pierre. Beaver,
Jade and Jakki Burma had all
qualified in regions, enabling them
to run in the state races. There to
cheer them on were the Burmas,
the Beckwiths, the Whites, Sue
Larson, Jim, Marjorie and Julie
Letellier, and some of Don and
Anna Mae Letellier’s children and
grandchildren. After the races,
they all congregated at the Beck-
with’s for more family time.

buildings from the hail.
Bill and Kenda Huber drove to
Centerville for parts last week.
Nicole Huber and boys were in

Friday Braeden wanted to sleep in
a tent, and Nicole had it all set up
for him, and then went into the

headed out for the tent, it was no
longer there. Another campout
foiled by the weather!

Rev. Denke took his Jeep to have
the air conditioning serviced one
day last week. Meanwhile the air
conditioning unit at the parsonage
blew up, which fouled up the fur-
nace and had it blowing air into the
rest of the house that was over 100
degrees. He was more than ready
to leave the house on Saturday to
head for Wall for a family reunion.
It was hosted by his Uncle Henry’s
family. He was happy to see so
many cousins, some of whom he
hadn’t seen for 25 years.
Last Tuesday’s supper guests at
the Jan Rasmussen home were
Dan, Dawn and Kate Rasmussen,

Milou to meet Chuk and Brita in
Wall. The Tesars headed back to
Rapid City and flew back to their
home in California.
Janice Ring’s sons, Keith and
Mike, both spent some time with

granddaughters spending some
time with them.
The Krogmans have been get-
ting some haying done, too.
Visitors at the home of Alberta,
Cliff and Pam Allard Thursday
evening were June, Michael and
Mathew Ring. While Alberta
showed the many quilts she had
just had machine quilted and vis-

and Cliff was kind enough to wash
and shine Alberta’s car, so it was
ready for her to drive home to

Friday, June 15, Bruce Ring was
installing a new battery backup for
June’s computer at her home, and
discovered that the voltage was too
high. Monday Lacreek Electric
came out to check and agreed with
his report. Later that afternoon, a
new transformer was installed at
June’s. Since the washing machine
had conked out earlier (apparently
from the too high voltage), June
and the twins went over to Bruce
and Jessie’s Tuesday evening to do
some laundry, and had supper with
the family between loads.
Saturday Matthew, Michael and
June Ring took dill soup over to
Maxine’s for the Saturday lunch-
eon, and visited afterward. The

The South Dakota 9-1-1 Coordi-
nation Board is reminding tele-
phone users of the 9-1-1 surcharge
increase that takes effect on July 1,
2012.
The 2012 Legislature approved
an increase in the traditional sur-
charge from the current 75 cents per
month to $1.25 per month. That fee
is collected by all monthly billed
telephone and wireless service
providers, such as CenturyLink,
Verizon, Midcontinent Communica-
tions, AT&T, Golden West Telecom-
munications, Knology, Vonage and
others.
In addition, the Legislature also
assessed the 2 percent 9-1-1 sur-
charge on all prepaid wireless serv-
ices collected at the retail point of
sale. That rapidly growing segment
of wireless users includes such com-
panies as TracFone, Wal-Mart’s
Straight Talk service and others.
The surcharge, a fee imposed in
virtually every state, pays the cost
of operating 9-1-1 public safety dis-
patch centers. In South Dakota, the
Legislature first authorized a sur-
charge in 1989. The fee has been
limited to no more than 75 cents per
phone line per month since then.
“That’s 23 years without a fund-
ing increase in an industry that has
changed almost beyond recognition
in that time,’’ said Ted Rufledt Jr.,
chair of the State 9-1-1 Coordination
Board. “Revenue from the surcharge
simply hasn’t kept up with changes
and rising costs of providing 9-1-1
service. Some of the additional rev-
enue will be used to provide addi-
tional funding for the 9-1-1 centers,
and some will be used to make the
changes necessary to modernize 9-1-
1 in our state.’’
As of 2011, the 9-1-1 surcharge
covered about half the cost of oper-
ating the system in South Dakota.
Besides the need for additional
revenue to support the existing sys-
tem, funding was needed for South
Dakota to update the 9-1-1 system
to what is commonly called Next
Generation 9-1-1. Most of the exist-
ing system is based on 1970s tele-
phone technology. With the
explosive development of wireless
smart phones, 9-1-1 as it exists
today isn’t able to capitalize on the
technology that wireless customers
use every day.
For example, citizens can’t send a
text message to a 9-1-1 dispatch cen-
ter. They aren’t able to send photos
or video of crimes or suspects di-
rectly to a 9-1-1 dispatcher. Those
services would be possible in the
Next Generation 9-1-1 system.
The surcharge increase passed
nearly unanimously (SB174) during
the last legislative session. A portion
of the increase, 25 cents per line per
month is earmarked for Next Gen-
eration 9-1-1 and is scheduled to
sunset in 2018. The State 9-1-1 Co-
ordination Board plans to start up-
dating parts of the 9-1-1 system in
the next one to two years and to
have all 9-1-1 centers on the up-
dated system by 2018.

the Pearl Hotel and some of the
class get-togethers. A few of the
residents attended the Belvidere
class reunion as well. No one at the
nursing home was awakened by
the late night music under the big
tent, but the thunder and lighten-
ing during Friday night's storms
disrupted the slumber of a few. The
moisture is greatly appreciated and
our garden has grown leaps due to
the nourishing rain.

daughter, Sharon Vaughan of New-
port, NC, spent Saturday and Sun-
day in Kadoka, visiting friends and
relatives, mostly at the Pearl Hotel
on Saturday afternoon and again
after they attended the alumni
potluck dinner at the auditorium
Sunday. They said they couldn’t
talk Pam (Rock) Fairchild of Stur-
gis into coming to her 50th class re-
union, but both ladies really
enjoyed the weekend here. Ella
also stated that she graduated
from Interior High School 75 years
ago; can’t bowl any more because
Sturgis closed their bowling alley,
but plays lots of cards.
A few members of the Class of
1948 met at the Gateway Apart-
ments Community Room on Friday
evening. Out-of-town classmate,

Memorial services were held in
Philip on Saturday, June 23, at the
United Church.
The ranch rodeo held on Satur-
day had a large crowd attending
and was considered a huge success.
About 150 people ate homemade
ice cream and brownies while tour-
ing the Pearl Hotel and the fire-
men’s dinner was well attended. A
small group attended the alumni
potluck and meeting on Sunday,
which had several conflicts includ-
ing a large household sale and the
State High School Rodeo Finals
that day. Reports of activities were
given by Emil Williams, class of
1952 and by Jeanne (Allen) Toro,
class of 1962. She stated that 14 of
a class of 21 attended their reunion
celebration, with two classmates
deceased. She and John Solon rep-
resented their class at the potluck.
A letter was read to the group
from Bertha Olson Smith of Grants
Pass, OR, who paid her dues for
three years and stated that she
graduated in 1932, making this her
80th year since graduation. What a
positive attitude! Although the at-
tendance on Sunday was small, the
food and fellowship was wonderful.
Jeanne and her husband live in
Chandler, AZ, moving there from
Denver after she was a practicing

and families who signed the guest
book at the Pearl Hotel included
Barbara (Coller) Rokke and daugh-
ters of Maplewood, MN; Lynn
(Nielsen) and husband, Don Kelly,
of Sugarland, TX, and their daugh-
ter, Sue Calcagni of Salisburg, NC;
Tony Struble and his wife of Eliza-

hart of LaVista, NE, and her sister,
Michelle (Parke) Renning of Emer-
son, NE. Since this reporter
worked most of the day at the
hotel, I missed many other names.
Hopefully, the pictures of the
classes will tell who all came to
Kadoka for this event.
Bud Olney and Lyle Klundt have
both been hospitalized recently.
Bud has been discharged from
Rapid City Regional and is home,
but as of Monday, Lyle was still
being treated.
Thesa Ireland stated that the
Ireland Annual Wagon Train which
was held over the Father’s Day
weekend was a huge success. She
said that there was no charge for
the ride, but a donation jar was
available and all proceeds went to
the Sgt. Colton Derr Memorial
Fund. Colton was from New Un-
derwood and had attended the
wagon train ride since he was a
small boy. He died earlier this year
while serving overseas.
Jeff Willert had some success in
the Reno Rodeo last week. He and
Chad Ferley brought home some
money. In the first round Jeff got
an 81, tied for sixth place, winning
$452. The second round Jeff and
Chad both scored 82, tied for sec-
ond place, winning $1,262 each;
Chad got third place in average
and won $2,373. Jeff was to go to
Canada for three rodeos, but there
were no scores recorded there for
him in High River, Wainwright or
Sundre. He is to ride in Greeley,
CO, June 28; Ponoka, AB., July 1;
Cody, WY, July 3 and St. Paul, OR,
July 4. Jamie Willert took part in
the Kadoka Ranch Rodeo on Satur-
day, teaming with Cole Reinert,
Nichols Caspers and Luke Vander-
May. Those results are elsewhere
in the paper, but that team took
fourth place.

into their car for the purpose of ha-
rassing and interrogating him and
started driving back toward Wan-
blee. Law enforcement authorities
were dispatched to the area, lo-
cated the Jakeways, stopped their
vehicle, and freed the victim. The
victim suffered bruises and abra-
sions as a result of the kidnapping.
Jerett Jakeway pled guilty to
the kidnapping charge on June 15,
2012, and will be sentenced on Sep-
tember 11, 2012.
The investigation was conducted
by Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law En-
forcement Services. The case is
being prosecuted by Assistant
United States Attorney Tim Maher.
A presentence investigation was or-
dered, and a sentencing date was
set for September 11, 2012. Jake-
way was remanded to the custody

ing sentencing.
United States Attorney Brendan
V. Johnson has announced that
William Jakeway, age 52, of Wan-
blee, South Dakota, appeared be-
fore United States District Judge
Roberto A. Lange on June 20, 2012,
and pled guilty to kidnapping, aid-
ing and abetting. The maximum
penalty upon conviction is life im-
prisonment, a $250,000 fine, or
both.
The conviction stems from an in-
cident that took place on November
5, 2011, when Jakeway and his son
abducted the victim, an adult male.
Jakeway and his son, Jerett Jake-

Range monitoring and research
studies were discussed with atten-
dees at the Rangeland Days and
Soils Days west of Philip June 19
and 20.
South Dakota State University
and National Resources Conserva-
tion Service personnel presented
information and discussed the find-
ings and applications. The adult
program was held at the Cotton-
wood Range and Livestock Reseach
Station.
Mitch Faulkner, NRCS range-
land management specialist from
Belle Fourche, spoke about the use-
fulness of monitoring rangelands.
By monitoring rangeland the
producer can see how his/her man-
agement practices affect vegetation
and the soil. The first step is to de-
termine your objective, Faulkner
said. The objective could be in-
creasing ground cover, changing
plant species or their frequency,
wildlife habitat, riparian condi-
tions, or how livestock utilize the
area.
The sites should be recorded at
the same time each year to keep an
accurate record. The time of year
would be based on a producer’s ob-
jectives. Faulkner said if they are
monitoring for plant vigor, or
studying plants in general, early to
mid-July would be an ideal time.
But if looking for the amount of for-
age cover then September or Octo-
ber would be best.
Faulkner stressed the use of pho-
tos in recording the sites. He said
it is easy to forget exactly how a
site looked when the monitoring
first started. An overall landscape
picture of the site should be taken
and, if desired, a closeup of the
ground can be taken. He suggested
when doing the ground shots, take
several along a 100 foot length and
place an object in the picture for
scale.
Notes also need to be taken each
time the site is checked. In addi-
tion, data such as precipitation for
the year, infestations and temper-
atures should be included.
Janna Kincheloe and Ken Olson,
both based out of Rapid City’s West
River Ag Center, spoke about
rumen fistulated steers which
SDSU will use for grazing and nu-
trition research.
Kincheloe, a research technician,
explained that personnel will man-
ually empty the rumen and then
the steers will be sent out to graze.
She explained that this will allow
the researchers to remove the mat-
ter, see the availability of feeds and
what plants the steers are select-
ing. The grasses are then returned
to the rumen for digestion.
Also, by removing matter from
the rumen the researchers can
check the microbes – bacteria,
fungi, and protozoa. Kincheloe
noted that each type of microbe
helps break down the fibers, starch
and fats in the feed and they also
produce enzymes which further aid
in digestion.
Kincheloe said the steers will be
moved to McLaughlin and placed
in a pasture that has a heavy
prairie dog infestation. The study
will check to see if the steers will
graze the fresh sprouted grasses
around the prairie dog town or if
they totally leave that area alone
and find grazing elsewhere. At-
tached global positioning system
units will also help track where the
animals graze.
Olson, a range beef specialist,
and Kincheloe took the group
through the cannulating process.
The animals are not harmed by the
process in which a veterinarian
surgically installs the cannulas.
The animals are closely watched
until the area heals, at which time
they are placed on pastures.
Roger Gates, range specialist at
the WRAC, took the group south
into bordering pastures to review
grazing efficiency and profitability
of pastures.
Gates noted that an ongoing
stocking rate study has been con-
ducted since 1943. The study fo-
cuses on low to high stocking
levels, which then reflect excellent,
food and low-fair range conditions,
and how each level affects the prof-
its on each animal.
Gates said grasses in the range
conditions varied due to the graz-
ing intensity. The high intensity
areas tend to buffalo grass and blue
grama and other warm season
grasses. The lower stock rate pas-
tures tend toward western wheat
grass and other cool season
grasses.
Focusing on the study between
the years 1969 to 2002, the net in-
come on range in excellent condi-
tion, income averaged $9.31 per
acres, good condition at $11.86 and
low-fair at $11.18.
Gates said that the college has
always promoted the excellent
range conditions, but most produc-
ers utilize the good or low-fair, be-
cause they stock the area in high
quantities which are more prof-
itable to him.
In those same groups the aver-
age daily weight gain for the
groups reflected those animals on
the excellent range condition pas-
ture gained an average of 1.61
pounds per acre; good were at 1.69
and low-fair at 1.56.
The “Long-Term Production and
Profitability From Grazing Cattle
in the Northern Mixed Grass
Prairie” report of the study stated,
“Over the 34-year period of the
study, real profit ... steadily in-
creased ... for the low-fair and good
treatments while it remained basi-
cally level for the excellent treat-
ment. It is difficult to speculate as
to the cause of these differences,
but it is important to note that the
profitability of the low condition
pastures, which had the heaviest
stocking rate, did not decline over
time, it actually improved.
“In our 34-year study, rangeland
managed to maintain either low-
fair or good range condition was
equally profitable. Profit for both
steadily increased over time. Excel-
lent condition rangeland was the
least profitable to maintain and
profit remained stable over time.
These results are consistent with
generally observed rancher behav-
ior concerning range condition deci-
sions.”
Range scientist Pat Johnson in-
troduced a new study at the station
involving native bird habitat.
Johnson said the proactive study
is designed to be a jump ahead of
any possible bird threaten status
and also to see if the use of live-
stock grazing can help with their
habitat.
Steers were placed in eight
patches within the same pasture.
Water is supplied in the center of
the pasture so as not to be an issue.
Two animals in each patch have
been fitted with GPS units that
record their location every 65 sec-
onds.
Personnel at the Cottonwood sta-
tion monitor the height of the
grasses, record found nesting sites
and how they are in relation to
grazing and weight gain on the
steers. The study is still in its first
month, but Johnson is excited
about early data.
Johnson said this preliminary
study will be used to apply for
grants so further research can be
conducted.
Olson discussed the high sulfate
water trials that had been con-
ducted at Cottonwood. Producers
had contacted the college regarding
livestock health issues which led
the specialists to the problems of
high sulfate concentrations in
dams, especially during dry years.
He stated no solution has yet
been found for the problem. One
thing that was found is that there
seems to be a genetic disposition to
the level the animals are affected
by the sulfates.
He noted that after drinking
water with sulfates, the sulfates
turn into hydrogen sulfide, a gas,
in the rumen. The gas then affects
brain tissue, creating polio-like
symptoms and in some cases death.
The change to hydrogen sulfide is
caused by a bacteria, he said, so fo-
cusing on the bacteria may be an
avenue. As of now there are no
plans for further research regard-
ing sulfate water.

Children from across Haakon
County are ‘Wild About Coopera-
tion’ after attending the annual
Haakon County Farmers Union
camp held Thursday, June 14, 2012
at Gettings Missile Inn, Philip, SD.
The United Nations declared
2012 as the International Year of
Cooperatives, and this year’s camp
celebrated the positive impact co-
operatives have had on the econ-
omy of rural South Dakota and
communities across the world. The
kids participated in activities and
games that taught them about co-
operative business, rural communi-
ties, and agriculture in a fun and
safe setting. They participated in
hands-on team building activities,
played cooperative tic-tac-toe to
test their knowledge of coopera-
tives, and watched a puppet show
telling the history of Farmers
Union.
“The positive impact coopera-
tives have had in rural South
Dakota is dramatic,” said Haakon
County Education Director Sandee
Gittings. “Young people need to
know what cooperation can do in
business and in their own personal
lives. The kids who attended camp
have a greater understanding of
teamwork and will take the skills
they learned and apply them to
their lives.”
Campers participated in 4-H ac-
tivities along with other interactive
activities, games, and singing.
Each child also created their own
garden stones as a craft and each
child also received a free T-shirt.
Participants at this year’s
Haakon County Farmers Union
camp were: Max, Molly, Ana and
Kate Mckeehan, Jessica, Saman-
tha, and Colby Enders from
Kadoka, SD; Abby Fortune from
Belvidere; Kelton Quinn from
Milesville; Jasmine Hiatt, Roma-
nee Andru, Taylor and Brice Han-
son all from Philip. The Camp was
led by South Dakota Farmers
Union Summer Staff Amelia
Thompson and Hannah Lily and
assisting were Marsha Sumpter,
Ashton Reedy, Sandee Gittings,
Tyana, Myrna, and Sandra
Gottsleben.

gram expose students to science
topics that are taught at Brown
University.
SPARK students learn science in
by first focusing on the basics, and
build their knowledge until they
reach a deep understanding of the
more advanced concepts.
In addition to spending three
hours per day in classes, students
will take part in extra-curricular
activities where they interact with
students from other courses. The
extra-curricular activities include
field trips, other more general sci-
ence experiments and lectures on
diverse topics.
All students who successfully
complete their course will receive a
certificate of completion.
The 2012 SPARK courses in-
clude:
•forces of nature: hurricanes,
global warming, and the science of
weather
•the laboratory detective
•from brain to sensation
•so you want to be a scientist?
•exploring the world of marine
science
•conservation of endangered
species
•astrobiology: the search for life
in the universe
•understanding the human
body: an exploration of anatomy
•nanotechnology: the small
wonder from atom to space
•can you dig it?! exploring ar-
chaeology
•liftoff: designing and building
for air and space
•Mercury, Mars and beyond: ex-
ploring the planets in our solar sys-
tem
•everyday mechanics and spe-
cial relativity: how did we get from
Newton to Einstein?
Tate Grimes, a 7th grade stu-
dent at Interior, has been accepted
into the summer SPARK program
through Brown University.
Students will be staying and
learning at the university campus
in Providence, RI.
The program is for students
with a passion for science; they
learn about the process of inquiry
and discovery and focus on the
process of asking questions.
In addition, they may find out
it’s cool to be interested in science.
Jennifer Van Pelt, the middle
school teacher at Interior said,
“This is an amazing accomplish-
ment and we are so proud of Tate.”
SPARK is a science program for
curious middle school students who
seek to spend one or two weeks at
Brown’s Ivy League campus and
immerse themselves in exciting sci-
ence subjects, and gain the founda-
tions necessary for further
scientific inquiry.
The courses of the SPARK pro-
Grimes to attend SPARK program
at Brown University in July
Students from ages eight to 18
from across South Dakota con-
verged on Philip June 19 and 20 to
take part in the annual Rangeland
Days and Soils Days.
Students were given a chance to
practice their skills Tuesday at a
pasture northeast of the contest
site. That evening some of the stu-
dents gave speeches and had their
range displays set up for judging.

Producers have been putting up
their first and second cutting al-
falfa and starting to cut their grass
hay. Although some hay will re-
main with the operation, there are
several growers who plan to mar-
ket their hay, says Tracey Renelt,
Extension Dairy Field Specialist.
If you're one of the producers
who are deliberating selling your
alfalfa or grass hay, Renelt says
there are a few things to consider
before marketing your product to
optimize the price you receive.
"First, have you taken an analy-
sis of forage to determine the qual-
ity? Sampling should be done as
close to the time of utilization of
the feedstuff or to the time sale,"
Renelt said. "This can be done by
coring the bales via a hay probe."
Hay probes should be placed on
the curved side at a 90 degree
angle for large round bales, coring
towards the center or when coring
square bales it should be placed on
the butt end of the bales. Care
needs to be taken as to not get net
wrap or twine included in the core
sample. Growers need to core sev-
eral random bales (20 minimum
cores total) in a lot of hay and com-
bine the sample and place the cores
into gallon size plastic bag or other
container and seal. A total of one-
half pound of dry hay from the 20
cores is adequate.
"Samples should represent a
cutting of hay from a particular
field that has been put up under
similar conditions, which is also re-
ferred to as a hay lot," Renelt said.
She reminds growers to label
their sample bag adequately with
their contact information, includ-
ing phone number and type of sam-
ple you are sending (alfalfa, grass
hay, mixed hay, etc) and the type of
analysis desired.
Growers have several choices
when it comes to selecting a lab
which can perform an analysis on
the sample to determine the feed
quality. For lab contact information
contact the local SDSU Regional
Extension Center or the National
Forage Testing Association website
http: / / www. foragetesting. org/
upon its quality at the time of uti-
lization," Renelt said.
When determining a fair price,
Renelt says growers should con-
sider the method they used to put
the hay up.
"Was the hay put up as a large
round bale or small or large square
bale or as balage? Was it net
wrapped, twine wrapped, or plastic
wrapped? Is it plastic twine or sisal
twine? Has it sat out and been
rained on since harvest or has it
been stored in the shed? All these
things should be considered when
pricing your commodity," she said.
The last item growers should
consider is the hay's appearance.
"Growers need to visually in-
spect the hay to see if there is nox-
ious weed seeds, mold or if there is
foreign material present in the
hay," Renelt said. "All of which can
change the price received and will
not show up on an NIRS analysis.
If state or locally noxious weed
seeds are present it will prevent
you from transporting or selling
the product according to state law."
which provides a list of certified
laboratories that perform hay
analysis tests.
Renelt explains that growers
can either perform a wet chemistry
analysis or a NIRS (Near Infrared
Reflectance Spectroscopy) analysis,
which is most commonly done and
typically is the quickest and cheap-
est method.
Thru the NIRS analysis growers
will obtain results for RFV (relative
feed value), RFQ (relative feed
quality), percent dry matter, crude
protein, ADF(acid detergent fiber,
NDF (neutral detergent fiber) di-
gestible NDF, lignin, crude fat, ash,
Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium,
Potassium, Total Digestible Nutri-
ents, Net Energy for gain, lactation
& maintenance, NDF digestibility,
and NFC (non-fiber carbohydrate).
"So why is this important? As we
know, alfalfa and grass quality will
vary greatly based on maturity at
the time of harvest, conditions it
was put up under, and storage
methods. Thus, it has given us a
way to value the product based

Fertility is influenced by many
factors, and one of the best methods
to look at factors that influence fer-
tility is with the 'Equation of Repro-
duction,' says George Perry, SDSU
Extension Beef Reproductive Man-
agement Specialist.
Perry explains that the 'Equation
of Reproduction' includes the follow-
ing four areas:
•Percentage of animals detected
in standing estrus and inseminated;
•Inseminator efficiency;
•Fertility level of the semen;
•Fertility level of the herd.
The first article focused on de-
tecting standing estrus, inseminator
efficiency was the focus of the sec-
ond article and fertility level of
semen was the topic discussed in the
third article of this four-part series
on managing for reproductive suc-
cess released by SDSU Extension.
This is the fourth and last article in
the series. It will discuss fertility
level of the herd.
Fertility level of the herd
Fertility of the herd may be the
most difficult factor to evaluate,
Perry says.
"Accurate detection of estrus, in-
seminator efficiency and fertility of
the semen (Parts l, ll, and lll) of this
discussion are all vital to the success
of any breeding program. However,
even when these three elements are
well managed, if the cow herd fertil-
ity level is compromised, pregnancy
rates may not meet cattlemen's ex-
pectations," Perry said.
When Perry discusses herd fertil-
ity he is referring to a herd's cy-
cling/puberty status, compliance
with protocols, embryonic mortality,
body condition score (nutrition level)
and disease control.
Cycling
Perry says non-cycling cows at
breeding time may result from a
number of factors including dysto-
cia, calving late, inadequate nutri-
tion levels (pre and post calving),
cow age or excessive milk produc-
tion in relationship to the feed re-
sources available or severe weather
conditions. In addition, heifers not
developed properly and failing to
reach 55 percent to 65 percent of
their mature weight by breeding
time may not cycle or conceive if
they do.
Synchronization protocols that
utilize a progestin can help
cows/heifers that have not initiated
normal estrous cycles if they are al-
most ready to begin having normal
estrous cycles.
"These protocols are the result of
time-consuming research and are a
valuable tool when incorporated ac-
curately into breeding programs in
conjunction with good herd manage-
ment," Perry said. "However, regi-
mented use of them is essential for
satisfactory results."
When implementing protocols,
Perry says advanced planning is im-
portant.
"Timing of prebreeding vaccina-
tions needs to be well in advance of
insemination," he said. "Cattle pro-
ducers need to plan when injections
or feeding need to occur; plan access
to facilities and line-up additional
labor. When insemination will occur
must be planned well in advance of
protocol use."
Embryonic mortality
Fertilization rates are usually be-
tween 89 percent and 100 percent
when semen is present at the time
of ovulation. However, Perry says
early embryonic mortality causes
that percentage to drop to about 60
percent to 70 percent.
"Several management decisions
can impact the percent of embryos
lost to early embryonic mortality,"
Perry said.
One factor he says is the timing
of transporting cows and heifers
after insemination.
"Research conducted at the
USDA research center in Miles City,
Mont., reported transporting
cows/heifers from day 5 and 42 after
insemination is a very sensitive
time for the embryo and can be a
major factor in embryo mortality,"
he said.
Another factor is changes in nu-
tritional status.
"This can also have a tremendous
influence on embryonic survival,"
Perry said.
He points to research conducted
at Oklahoma State University
showed that sever changes in intake
of energy and protein can result in
heifer stopping normal estrous cy-
cles.
"Furthermore, work done at
South Dakota State University
showed that moving heifers, who de-
veloped all winter in a feedlot, to
pasture immediately after AI can in-
crease early embryonic losses,"
Perry said.
Body condition score & disease
Body condition score (BCS) and dis-
ease are two additional causes of
marginal fertility rates says Perry.
"Research recommendations sug-
gest that cows be in a minimum
BCS of 5 and heifers 6 at calving
time in order for them to cycle and
re-breed on an annual basis," he
said. "This allows sufficient body re-
serves for lactation and to initiate
normal estrous cycles after calving."
However, Perry notes, if adequate
nutrition is not available after calv-
ing, body condition can be lost and
may delay the return to normal es-
trous cycles.
Overall health of the herd can im-
pact herd fertility says Perry.
"Cattle producers need to imple-
ment a proper pre-breeding vaccina-
tion program along with a
well-managed, internal and exter-
nal parasite application program.
This will help limit disease occur-
rences in the herd and promote herd
fertility," Perry said.
He adds that special care should
be taken with virgin heifers.
"Several studies have reported
negative impacts on pregnancy suc-
cess by vaccinating heifers that
have never been vaccinated before
with a modified live vaccine (MLV)
for BVD or IBR around time of
breeding," he said. "Therefore, gen-
eral recommendations for vaccina-
tion of replacement heifers include;
before and at weaning, with both
heifers and cows receiving a booster
vaccine at least 30 days before
breeding. If it is absolutely neces-
sary to give a modified live vaccine
less than 30 days prior to breeding,
the vaccine should be administered
as soon as possible and only to ani-
mals that were vaccinated both be-
fore and at weaning. Animals that
have not previously been vaccinated
(naïve animals) should not be vacci-
nated near the time of breeding."
The "Equation of Reproduction,"
which has been discussed in this
four-part series, highlights manage-
ment practices that are essential to
any successful beef breeding pro-
gram.
When we are "Managing for Re-
productive Success," it involves cat-
tle producers making management
decisions throughout the entire year
- not just prior to the breeding sea-
son. By doing this, producers can ex-
pect to generate successful
reproductive results.
"As we increase the reproductive
efficiency within a herd, we can in-
crease our management decisions on
genetic improvement and other fac-
tors to increase the profitability of
your herd," Perry said.

inseminator efficiency, contact Jim

SDSU Extension
Re-organization
As we progress into the first
summer of the new SDSU Exten-
sion system, the Regional Exten-
sion Centers are becoming busier
with telephone, e-mail and walk-in
traffic. As the SDSU Extension Re-
organization was unveiled in April,
2012, some of the criteria for the
location of the Regional Extension
Centers included geography of the
state, and location of major trade
centers.
While there can be no perfect
situation, the wisdom of locating
the Regional Centers in communi-
ties identified as trade centers is
becoming increasingly apparent.
There are certainly people who
don’t make frequent trips to the
communities where the Extension
Centers were chosen to be located,
but at least in Winner, a number of
people have stopped in the center
while they were in town for an-
other reason. This has provided
them an opportunity to bring in
crop samples, weeds or insects to
identify, or simply to request infor-
mation in person.
If they weren’t planning a trip
to Winner, or needed assistance on
shorter notice, technology has
served well, either by calling on
the telephone, sending an e-mail,
and sometimes including one or
more digital photographs. On one
recent occasion, I was in northern
South Dakota, participating in a
series of winter wheat tours and
received a digital photograph on
my cell phone of some wheat
plants. I was able to identify the
wheat disease affecting the plants,
call the client within a short time
and provided him with the infor-
mation he needed. E-mail is also
used extensively to receive re-
quests for assistance, and to pro-
vide information, often involving
digital photographs and the ex-
change of electronic documents.
Not everyone in South Dakota
is blessed with reliable cell phone
service and high-speed Internet
access, or even Internet access at
all. We at SDSU Extension are al-
ways available via telephone, and
may need to return phone calls,
but strive to do so in a timely man-
ner. We are also more than willing
to send factsheets and/or letters
for specific information by mail if
needed.
Not everyone in South Dakota
is probably pleased with the re-or-
ganization of the Extension Serv-
ice, particularly if they are located
a long distance from one of the re-
gional centers. The Extension
Field Specialists do feel that they
are able to concentrate more
closely on their specialty area and
better serve the people who come
to them for information.
If you would like information in
the specialty areas provided at the
Winner Regional Extension Center
(specifically Plant Pathology,
Human Nutrition, and soon, Beef
Cow-Calf), stop in at 325 S Monroe
St., or call 842-1267. For other spe-
cialty areas, if you have Internet
access, visit iGrow:
http://igrow.org/ or the SDSU Ex-
tension website: http://www.sd-
state.edu/sdces/ for a complete
listing of Regional Extension Cen-
ters, the Field Specialists, their
areas of expertise, addresses, tele-
phone numbers and e-mail ad-
dresses. If you don’t have Internet
access, you can also contact most
County Extension Offices and get
a list of the Regional Extension
Centers, the Fields Specialists lo-
cated at each one and their contact
information.

SDSU Extension recently re-
leases a new training video to help
producers correctly sample hay to
get a clear picture of its nutritional
value.
The video, "Forage Sampling
Method," is useful for livestock pro-
ducers who feed hay for those who
market the forage.
"Many producers would say
quality hay is green in color, free of
mold and weeds, has a high portion
of leaves and it was put up without
rain on it. Although these are all
good indicators of high quality hay,
they don't tell producers anything
about the nutritional content of the
forage," said Julie Walker, SDSU
Extension Beef Specialist. "Sam-
pling hay is essential to under-
standing its true quality."
The video is available on iGrow's
YouTube Channel
http://www.youtube.com/sdsuigrow.
It is hosted by Warren Rausche,
SDSU Extension Cow/Calf Field
Specialist and Tracey Renelt,
SDSU Extension Dairy Field Spe-
cialist.
