Grace plans to join her brother, Callum, in the fall, attending John Brown University in Siloam Springs, Ark. Rainy weather has slowed the demo- lition progress at the farm home of Edith Ayres. A beautiful Sunday morning brought worshippers to Northbranch Friends Church where Pastor Jon Harkness welcomed everyone and gave announcements.

For the offertory, Judy Pierce, accompa- nied by Liz Jeffery, sang a rendition of a medley, "We Will Understand it Better By and By-Higher Ground." Grace McNichols shared her signing talent signing the song, "Screen Door." As a gift from the church, Pastor Jon presented Grace with a Bible with sig- natures of the congregation in the fly- leaf covers. "The Bible and the Spirit" was Pas- tor Jon's message title, with text taken from John 14:6 - "I am the Way, the Truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." Some of his thoughts included the idea of think- ing as the Bible as a road map, likened to today's GPS, with the Holy Spirit being the leader. Some folk pay no attention to the Bible, which when studied will lead to the Holy Spirit giving guidance. While the Bible is truth, our interpretation may not al- ways be correct. Our path ahead may be rough at times but we can trust the B ible as our"GPS" to lead us in correct paths. A time of Open Worship (Quaker Communion) followed with Pastor Jon dismissing the service. Visitors in the service were Ardean Jeffery; Judy Pierce; Paul and Kathy Chapman and Claire; Jo Abel; Mim Johnson; Evan and Jaci Firner and Maddox. Jean Davis and Ione Shipley had dinner together at a cafe in Red Cloud.

Edamarlene Leslie Stone Suchsland Post Rock Answers By Neil Cates, Post Rock Extension With historic high cattle markets and less than impressive grain mar- kets, I have noticed more acres of farm ground being planted into feedstuffs for cattle. One of the more popular feedstuffs is forage sorghum. Forage sorghum offers a variety of benefits as a feedstuff for livestock. What are the benefits offorage sor- ghum ? Forage sorghums are versatile. They use less water than some of our other traditional forage crops and when man- aged correctly contain high quality nutrients for cattle. Depending on your goals forage sorghums can be grazed, hayed or put into silage. Once your goals are established, you can select the sorghum type and variety to match your needs. Sorghum types have a better heat and drought tolerance than corn or alfalfa, and require less water than corn silage. This makes it a great op- tion for our area with the unpredictability of precipitation. What type of sorghum should I tlant ? There are many sorghum types and each one possesses their own benefits. Brown midrib, or BMR, forage sor- ghum has been around for many years and is becoming increasingly popular. The brown midrib trait has between 20 to 50 percent less lignin content. Lig- nin is indigestible by the animal and protects plant fiber from being digested. With reduced lignin, there is better fiber digestibility and increased en- ergy content in the forage. On the down side, BMRs as a whole, yield about 10 percent less than non BMRs and tend to be less drought Darcy Williams tolerant than non BMRs. With the de- creased lignin content, BMR can have problems with standability as well. Photoperiod-sensitive (PPS) forage sorghum is another type of sorghum available. It remains vegetative until day length decreases to less than 12.5 hours a day. It remains vegetative long into the growing season. PPS forage sorghum does not produce seeds in Kansas, which extends the harvest win- dow for hay production. The advan- tage of this is it can produce high tonnage and provides a long window of opportunity for haying in the fail, because it will not be maturing. PPS forage sorghum is best suited for those interested in haying the crop, not for silage production. For those interested in grazing, sor, ghum-sudan grass is a good option. It possesses great regrowth potential. Sorghum-sudan grasses tend to be a more drought tolerant and more toler- ant of high pH soils than forage sor- ghum. On the down side, its feed qual- ity is reduced later in the season. To successfully raise forage sor- ghums for feed, a good nutrient man- agement program is important. Over- fertilizing with nitrogen can lead to high nitrate levels in the plant,,possibly leaving it unsuitable for livestock. Forage sorghums are a great option for a livestock feed source. However, they can accumulate nitrates and pro- duce prussic acid, both of which are toxic to livestock. Therefore, forage testing for those compounds is a must before feeding, which is a service pro- vided by Extension. This year K-State will have five variety testing sites across the state evaluating corn and sorghum silages, as well as sorghum and millet hay types. I am excited about this as it will help us better serve you in your variety selection for these feedstuffs. f In observance of Memorial Day, we will be closed SHELLITO ROOFING Seamless Guttering and Residential Roofing 2015 Free Estimates Located in Smith Center, Kan.
