    What should you do with fall alfalfa? Leave it? Cut it? Graze it? Each of these options can be correct under appropriate conditions. Making the best decision requires balancing the associated rewards and risks with each option. In the past, producers have been advised to cut hay 4-6 weeks prior to a killing frost (The average first frost date for most of Northern Nevada is October 1st- 10th). This advice is based on the fact that alfalfa plants need time to store carbohydrates in their root system prior to a killing frost in order to prevent winter kill. About 50 percent of the stored carbohydrates are used during the winter for plant survival. The remaining carbohydrates are available in the spring for initial herbage growth.

    I mentioned cognitive a few weeks ago. Since then, I have thought, researched, reflected, and decided to expand this idea further. Dr. Artz at our Dementia Friendly Summit suggested that doctors check our blood pressure, weight, and height, so why don’t they also pay attention to our cognitive health? “How is your brain doing today?” might be an opening question. Key elements of cognitive health include the regular diet, exercise, social participation, and plenty of sleep routine you well know, but how to prioritize and why? I’m guessing each person will describe a unique order, as in “Which came first? The chicken or the egg?” This brings me back to beginning teachers. I’d remind them that our #1 job is education.
