    I recently, received an email asking if I had ever heard of a new technique to revive nonresponsive calves?
    My answer was, no I had not. So, I did a little searching on the internet and found the following information.
    If you raise cattle or horses, you have probably seen it more than once — a beautiful, perfectly formed and apparently healthy calf or foal that just has no interest in engaging in life, or what is called neonatal maladjustment syndrome (NMS).

    Key House committees advanced parts of the Democrats' $1.9 trillion COVID-aid package, which included an estimated $4 billion for Nevada under a provision that would provide $350 billion to state and local governments.
    Rep. Steven Horsford (D-NV), who served as Nevada Senate majority leader during the 2009 economic recession, said the funding would help Nevada recover from the severe economic downturn caused by the pandemic. Last week’s work on the House COVID bill came as the state Legislature was working on the biennial budget.

  • Climate change and suppression tactics are critical factors increasing fires
    Thursday, February 25, 2021 1:00 AM
    The millions of people affected by 2020’s record-breaking and deadly fires can attest to the fact that wildfire hazards are increasing across western North America.
    Both climate change and forest management have been blamed, but the relative influence of these drivers is still heavily debated. The results of a recent study show that in some ecosystems, human-caused climate change is the predominant factor; in other places, the trend can also be attributed to a century of fire suppression that has produced dense, unhealthy forests.

Eureka County, a main proponent of the bill, has argued a change is needed to comply with both the federal agreements and state law.
