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). 
  • 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.

    A new tool that could help defeat the coronavirus arrived in Pershing County last week. The Health Incident Trailer will mobilize COVID-19 testing and vaccination clinics and could serve the entire county now and after the pandemic according to County Commissioner Carol Shank.
    “As you are aware, Pershing County has several populated areas: Lovelock, Rye Patch/Oreana, Imlay/Unionville and Grass Valley,” she told a reporter last week. “Utilizing the CARES funds to purchase the medical trailer allowed the county to not only have it available for use during the COVID Pandemic but also for medical clinic outreach throughout the entire county.”

  • Titanium and ultraviolet light powerful combination against SARS-CoV-2 virus
    Thursday, February 18, 2021 1:00 AM
    Research to control and mitigate SARS-CoV-2 particles that linger on surfaces has shown that titanium oxide coated materials subjected to ultraviolent light can be highly effective in killing the virus, according to a study at the University of Nevada, Reno.
    “Our work indicates that surfaces protected with a well-known photoresponsive oxide coating serve as effective deterrent to the proliferation of COVID-19 surrogates,” Ravi Subramanian, a chemical and material science engineering associate professor developing the new technology at the University, said. “We use a relatively common material called titanium dioxide (found in some toothpastes for example), but prepared in the form of nanotubes, along with UV light as the key agents to destroy the viral particles.”
  • State Immunization Program explains vaccine allocation

  • First atomic blast in 1951 shook, shaped Nevada
    Thursday, February 18, 2021 1:00 AM
    Seventy years ago, an atomic blast detonated in a remote, sprawling swath of desert known as Frenchman Flat was seen and felt in Las Vegas, 65 miles to the southeast.
    ``VEGANS `ATOM-IZED,''' a Las Vegas Review-Journal headline read the next day, Jan. 28, 1951, in big, bold, all-capital letters across the front page.
    Coverage featured reports from people awakened by the shockwave, or who witnessed a blinding, white flash, or described a ``borealis effect'' spread over the whole sky to the northwest.
  • Winter landscape care
    Wednesday, February 17, 2021 1:00 AM
    The recent winter storms has provided some needed precipitation, but last week it has been dry with above average temperatures.
    So, how does this winter weather affect your landscape plants? And what can you do to prevent any winter injury?
    Winter injury to plants is a common problem throughout Nevada. Damaged plant parts dry out, die or become diseased; ultimately, the whole plant may die.
