What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

DOL prepares EA on proposed bison vaccinations The Montana Department of Livestock has prepared an envi­ ronmental assessment to analyze the effects of incorporating vac­ cination of bison against brucel- losis into the management frame­ work of the Interagency Bison Management Plan. Comments for the purpose of clarifying specific issues and identifying additional pertinent issues to develop the EA were received prior to July 15 and have been incorporated into the EA. “The decision of whether to incorporate bison vaccination into the IBMP will be based primarily on the determination that the RB51 vaccine is safe for use in bison and safe to non-target spe­ cies,\ said Dr. Tom Linfield, state veterinarian. The Department expects to make a decision by January 31, 2005. The EA also analyzes the effi­ cacy of RB51 for reducing bru­ cellosis infections in bison, de­ fines eligible bison, and deter­ mines the most appropriate way to coordinate bison vaccination with other bison management and research activities. The Department of Livestock invites public comment on the EA and meetings will be held in Bozeman on Tuesday, Dec. 14, at the Holiday Inn, 5 Baxter Lane; and in Helena on Wednesday, Dec. 15, at the Red Lion Colonial Inn, 2301 Colonial Drive. Both meet­ ings will begin at 7 p.m. Written comments are due by January 5, 2005. Comments may be mailed, faxed or emailed to Karen Coo­ per, Information Officer, Mon­ tana Department of Livestock, PO Box 202001, Helena, MT 59620- 2001, fax number 406-444-4316, email address Fund created for Cole infant Shortly after the arrival of little Joseph Cole, born June 24,2004, it was discovered that he had a heart murmur.

Tanner, County Extensioa Agent Stress of winter on beef cattle To compensate for cold stress in your beef herd you can imple­ ment one of the following two management strategies. One method is to provide shelter for your beef cattle, which helps the cows maintain on the same amount of energy. The second method is to increase your cattleis intake of energy to help them withstand cold temperatures, in some cases a combination of both management techniques maybe needed. The factors that create stress during the winter months are cold, wind, snow, rain, and mud. However, in Southwestern Montana cold temperatures are the obvious stress factor. Healthy cattle with aver­ age condition and hair coat optimize weight gain in the thermo neutral zone of 20-30 degrees F. Most research shows that protein, mineral, and vitamin needs are not altered during cold weather. With this being said, adjusting your feed rations for the cold is a matter of increasing energy to compen­ sate for increased maintenance needs due to heat loss A few suggestions for dealing with winter stress are First, provide shelter to reduce wind, moisture, and mm! Second, construct I'eedlots on south facing slopes where moisture conditions are lower. Third, adjust energy in rations to match expected perfor­ mance. Fourth provide animals dry bedding during •severe cold weather. In conclusion cattle will have reduced performance if action is not taken to compensate for winter cold stress The programs of MSI’ Extension Service are available to all people regardless of race, creed, sex, disability, or national origin The information for tins article was taken fi o m the l attic I ’ m idueer's Library.
