Post Rock xtensio Blowing snow and frigid tempera- tures make it hard to believe it is time to start thinking about Hazardous Oc- cupations Training but farm safety is nothing to take lightly. According to the Kansas Farm Bureau, in 2013 there were 15 fatal and nine non-fatal agri- culture related accidents "eported in Kansas. On a positive note, working on a farm is one of the most rewarding jobs a youth can have. It teaches re- sponsibility and respect, instills a hard work ethic, and allows the young work- ers to be a part of the largest industry in Kansas. Who needs to complete Hazardous Occupations Training? All 14 to 15 year olds are required to complete H.O.T. before they are allowed to per- form "hazardous" farm work for any- one other than their parents or legal guardians. So what is the definition of hazardous? Operating a tractor with more than 20 horsepower. This law only applies to this age group, once the youngster is 16 years of age, it is no longer a requirement. Noteveryjobon a farm requires certification, but mow- ing with a small mower, cleaning chicken houses, and pulling weeds are probably not jobs youngsters have in mind when they consider working for a farmer. What used to be called Tractor Safety is now Hazardous Occupations Training (HOT). The purpose is to provide safety education to youth who will be working on farms. It is a safety course, not a tractor operation course, and is required by a federal law. Fines of up to $10,000 can be imposed on employers not complying with this law. This is an agricultural exemption to child labor laws because of the tradi- John Tyler D.C. Mankato, Kan. 785-648-0080 785-378-8047 This week's report from Mankato Livestock, Inc.

OSHA allows this age group to work in this "Hazardous Oc- cupation"but requires the safety course first. Even with training these workers cannot apply chemicals or anhydrous ammonia, use clfain saws, or work with breeding livestock. To get a certificate three require- ments must be met. First attend the formal training, second pass a written test arid third spend their first 14 hours on equipment under the Supervision of a parent or employer. Again this is a safety course, not an operat)on course. Students need superyised instruction on equipment they will be using. This year the class will meet twice, the eveningofTuesday, March 11. and all day Saturday, March 22. Atten- dance is required at both. Location for the training will be at Carrico Imple- ment, Beloit. The'first evening is the pre-test and a safety presentation by Kansas Farm Bureau. The all day session involves classroom lessons, guest speakers, and equipment demonstrations. The class is open to anyone 14 and older. The only cost is for the textbook which may be purchased at the extension office. Pre-registration and return of required forms are requested by Feb. 28. When returning forms let the office know if interested in carpo01ing. What nutritional adjustmehts should I make for my livestdck during the extreme cold? Falling temperatures, wet condi- tions and wind cause a tremendous demand on the bodies of livestock for heat production. A bOdily response to cold stress in cattle and other species of livestock is an increase in dry matter intake. Liv.estock perform optimally in the thermo-neutral zone where tem- peratures are neither too cold nor too hot. The amount.of natural insulation on the animal influences their lower critical temperature (temperature at which performance i s affected by en- vironment). Research at Kansas State University showed beef cattle with a dry winter coat have a lower critical temperature of 32F. Cattle with a dry heavy winter coat have a lower critical temperature of 18F. The general rule of thumb is to increase the winter ra- tions energy one percent for each de- gree below the lower critical tempera- ture. This includes the wind chill fac- tor. Provide the added energy through feeding more hay, not grains. The only adjustment in cow rations caused by weather is to increase maintenance energy. Protein, mineral and vitafiain requirements are not changed by weather stress. Horses are, no different. The esti- mated lower critical temperature for a horse in moderate body condition with a heavy hair coat is 30F.

For example a horse with a heavy hair coat (lower critical temperature 30F) in an environment where the wind chill is 20F would result in the horse having an increased energy requirement of 10 percent. Meaning a 1,000 pound horse nor- mally consuming approximately 15 pounds of hay per day should now consume around 17 pounds of hay to maintain body condition. It is important to make sure horses have access to warm drinking water. Why warm water? As temperatures drop, so does the water consumption of the horse. Despite the cold weather, horses still need to consume 8 tol2 gallons a day, It is recommended that the water source maintain a tempera- ture between 45 and 65 F. Water colder than 45F will reduce consumption even more. According to a news re- lease from Texas A&Ms Veterinary Medicine school, "Insufficient water intake can result in dehydration and decreased blood volume (resulting in fewer nutrients to cells and decreased efficiency of waste removal). When water intake is decreased, your horse has an increased chance that its intes- tines may become impacted andcolic." Bottom line, horses are eating more hay and drinking less water increasing the risk of colic, so make sure your horse is provided quality warm water, to ensure the constant intake of water, reducing this risk. Animals are able to adapt to a wide variety of environments. It is our duty as caretakers for these animals, live- stock and pets, to make this adaption process easier, ensuring optimum health and performance from the ani- mal. Be sure tO make to the proper nutritional adjustments when the next cold weather snap arrives. Jewell Co. Memories Continued from page 3 versity"finished his study on Jewell County.
