I dal&apos;II pointoffloodcontrolandgroundwater but.the cost of employee time and protein certainly affects the value of dsll'laged by val[ldals recharge. An added benefit to the area drained for repair The Bruning Dam has become a popular spot lot sportsman over the years, particularly for duck hunters who enjoy the large water body and a good transient goose and duck migra- tion during the fall. But this fall. duck hunters have witnessed a shrinking reserw)ir and Fewer duck hunting op- portuniues. Sometime this fall. vandals threw three large chunks of concrete rubble down the riser of the dam and smashed the alfalfa valve which is used by the district in case repairs are needed on the structure. As a result, water has gushed through broken valve fer the several weeks and repairs were impos- sible because of the pressure on the valve from the volume of water in the reservom "It is senseless." said Mike Onnen. general manger of the NRD. "simple senseless that tblks get their kicks from damaging public property. This project has served the area well from the stand- is the 240 acres owned by the district that are open for public hunting and fishing• But such recreation opportu- nities will be limited because of the irresponsible actions of vandals." Little Blue NRD staff worked an entire day removing the concrete to expose tbe broken valve, then opened the valve the rest of the way to start drawing water out of the reservoir for repairs. Because there is no way to shu! the water off with a broken valve, the reservoir will have to be completely drained before the valve can be re- placed. The county was also impacted by the vandalism. Thayer County Road Superintendent Dick Heinrichs had planned to replace a damaged Mis- soun crossing across Dry Sandy Creek near the county line. but with water flowing down the creek, construction was not feasible. The crossing work will probably not be completed until spring• "It is not so much the cost of the valve." said Onnen. "Valves,are inex- pensive m the big scheme of things, @ The Lawrence-Nelson Raiders boys won their openithg game of the season Friday eveing. picks up a defensive rebound with Jared Reiman (53) ready to assist. eqmpment, lost groundwater recliarge opportunities, lost construction options and lost hunting and fishing opportu- nities do have a negative impact on the whole community '" The district is asking that anyone with information relating to the van- dalism should contact the NRD office at 402-364-2145 immediately. DTN more important than RFV when evaluating grass hay By Darei McGhee Extension Educator Livestock producers often think their prairie or cane hay or other grass hay looks really good bu! when a lab tested it the relative feed value, also called RFV. was surprisingly low. Pro- tein was good, TDN was okax, and the animals did just fine. So whai's wrong with relative feed value? Well actually, nothing is wrong. But we must understand bow RFV is calculated and how it should be used. First, relative feed value is calculated using only fiber values. Even though hay, il has absolutely no affect on the calculation• of relative feed value. Relative feed value was initially developed for the dairy industry. It was designed to help rank the potential energy intake of different hays by lac- tating dairy cows. And it does this quite well. especially for legumeg like alfalfa. Grass hay, though, is a bit more difficult. Grass has more fiber than alfalfa, which lowers its RFW. But, that Fiber often is more digestible than al- falfa fiber. So grass hay is frequently ranked lower than it should be using relative feed value. Also RFV doesn't predict perfor- mance b 3 other types of animals like beef cows. as well because potential energy intake does not have as much influence on their performance. What this,basically means is that when you teed grass hay to animals other than dairy cows, focus on crude protein and TDN. The RFV is much less important and could cause you to worry more th-an its worth.
