By the time this paper is delivered the 2011 Webster and Nuckolls county fairs will be finished• Both fairs left lots of good memories. I don't know how many readers have seen a 4-H ice cream roll but it is something to watcli. It is so good to see the young people, parents and grand- parents talking, laughing and enjoying the looks upon the faces of the young- sters as they roll cans of ice and rock salt surrounding smaller cans filled with a plethora of different flavors of home-made ice cream back and forth with their partner. I didn' t get to sample any this year at the Webster County is done, the awards have been pre- sented and it is time to lel your hair down. You never want to turn your back to a young 4-H'er on the last day of the fair unless you are prepared to change clothes or at the very least cool down with an mpromptu shower. Blistering days, a good shot of rain and perhaps a storm or two are almost certain during fair week. The people I talked to during clean up hit it right on the nose. The fair is all about the youngsters. I like to see them prepare and show their animals, to watch them run, yes I said run from one building to another or perhaps to the 4-H food stand, or maybe to help chase a wayward lamb or calf that slipped its halter. I enjoy the parade of animals in front of the judge. I walk through the 4-H and FFA exhibit hall to smell of fresh baked goods and ab- sorb the beauty of photography, horti- cultural items, unique wood or metal projects, sewed goods, etc. I always stop to look at the welding boards and critique them. just as I did my former students in welding class. It is always good to talk to old friends and past 4-H and FFA mem- Fair as I lad to get the bugs out of the sound system, but by all reports the ice cream was delicious and by the noise that came from the event area every- one was having a good time. "It will take some good recipes to beat the strawberry cheesecake ice cream that I sampled two years ago! I unfor- tunately did not hear what the most unique flavor was this year but there have been some good ones! The fair is cacophony of sounds thatmake each and every fair what it is. The sounds of chickens, roosters and ducks, as well as the incessant bleating of sheep and goats, the grunts and squeals of pigs always wanting to eat, and of course the gentle mooing of the bovine species as they lay in their stalls or are walked to their tie outs or per- haps to the watering tank. What is especially music to my ears is tile ex- cited chatter of the youngsters as they catch up with their friends and discuss how much better their animal is than the one they had last year. When you see that water tank you know what the future will hold as the fair winds down and the last day ar- rives. That is when you know the work are you IN? Where do you go to get the complete story? The Superior Express bers who now come back with their youngsters to try to capture for them some of what they experienced when they were their children's age. Some even drive miles and miles each year, just to take in the fair. High-efficiency heating and cooling systems S D Fertilizer, LLC Doing business as Superior Deshler High.__ av 8 East ,Superior.

Crop Updates: last week was a blur of phone calls but it' s great to receive them and know so man5' of you are doing your best to wait for your soil to be depleted before scheduling your first irrigation! There are some of you in the Little Blue NRD who haven't received the rains the past few weeks and have hit the 90-100 trigger on your watermark sensors to schedule your first irrigation. Most of you reading this won't have to irrigate till after tassel (and then you can take into ac- count the 3  footin your average)! The 90-100 trigger relates to 35-40 percent soil moisture depletion and is proven by research via Dr. Suat Irmak at South Central Ag Lab for our silty clay soils. Waiting for the trigger;egardless if you're on load control or not, will still allow you at least a week to 10 days before you have to worry about getting behind, Please continue to call with questions. There' s also a discus- sion toDc on my blog for your com- ments and questions. Corn and beans are looking good overall, are closing canopies, and corn is rapidly growing. Wheat is being combined in the southern tier of coun- ties and there has been quite a range of yields due to the dry weather produc- mg small heads and disease issues such as scab, smut. and ergot. Scab (Fusarium Head Blight) is a concern when we receive rain and high humid- ity during and around flowering. We were recommending fungicides at that time. Some people escaped it, some put the fungicide on. and others didn' t- so there's a range of yields out there from that. Common bunt (stinking smut) is the smut that creates clouds of black spores when you're combining and the grain smells like fish.: Loose smut is loose in the head and doesn't form a kernel shape like common bunt does. Both can be prevented by not saving contaminated seed and using fungicide seed treatments at planting. Ergot is one I hadn't seen in wheat since I've been here but have in road- side grasses. Ergot is caused by a fungus that infects the wheat head dur- ing cool, wet conditions during flow- ering. Like the fungus that causes scab, it simply replaces the normal pollination process and instead, a black/ purple hard fruiting body (sclerotia) is eventually formed. Before this is formed, a sugary drop called honey- dew is formed which then turns into the sclerotia. It's a problem for our producers because I don't know that you can set your fans to blow it out like you can for light, scabby kernels since ergot sclerotia are denser. The prob- lem with ergot is that it contains toxic alkaloids (one is like LSD) fact, it's blamed that ergot-contaminated rain is what caused the Salem Witch Trials. These alkaloids are also toxic to livestock so contaminated grain should not be fed or even blended off for livestock. Federal grain standards clas- sify wheat as ergot infested When it contains more than 0.3 percent sclero- fla. If you are finding ergot-contami- nated gYain in your fields, do not save seed back next year; start over with disease free certified seed. The sclero- tia will live on top of the soil for a year (they will produce spores next grow- ing season so don't plant contaminated wheat fields back into wheat, barley, oats, or triticale). Mowing roadside ditches and keep- ing wheat fields free of other grasses can help prevent ergot infested grasses from spreading the ergot fungus to wheat via blowing spores and rain splash.
