  • Early Weaning Calves During Drought
    Wednesday, June 29, 2022 1:00 AM
    During normal precipitation years, calves in Northern Nevada are weaned at six to seven months of age. In typical spring calving herds, this is usually September through November. However, during drought, forages are generally limited, and early weaning should be considered as a management tool. Time of weaning will have impacts on cow and calf performance as well as health and productivity of the native range or pasture.

    Tuesday, June 21, 2022 1:00 AM
    High stakes chemicals are not of the usual concerns for first responders in their daily work, but have to be in a community that is home to booming industries that handle all sorts of serious materials. The first responders in Humboldt County participated in a safety drill with Cyanco—one of the leading mineral extraction chemical manufacturers in the nation— to improve the comprehensive skills and reaction capabilities of both Cyanco and the local first responders. According to Cyanco, the drill presented an opportunity for environmental, health, and safety professionals in Winnemucca to experience a real-life scenario with which they would be responsible for in a true emergency situation, if one were to occur.

    Wednesday, June 15, 2022 1:00 AM
    The Class of 2022 endured many unique obstacles throughout their time at Lowry High School (LHS), which made the graduation ceremony on June 9 an even more special celebration. The times of uncertainty, hard work, and the scramble at lunch hour—which was never actually an hour— make graduating so sweet, but as the harsh realization that one no longer gets to see their friends in second period or at football games anymore, or that there won’t be anymore assemblies or plays to attend sets in, “bittersweet” takes on a more significant meaning.
