Fair season is well underway, but applications are still open for the Mendocino County Fair Outstanding Breeder Award, sponsored by McAsey Farm. One junior exhibitor will be named the 2014 Outstanding Breeder and awarded a silver buckle and $250 cash. All FFA, 4H and independent junior producers who have livestock breeding projects in beef, dairy, swine, sheep, goats, rabbits or poultry are eligible. The winner will be announced at the Exhibitor’s Dinner at the Mendocino County Fair in Boonville, CA. Applications for this award close on August 31, and can be downloaded on the Rainbow Livestock page. This award is dedicated to Chuck Ream, a prestigious livestock breeder in Mendocino County. Chuck is known for his continuous support of youth projects at the local, state and national levels. He has served as a 4H leader, FFA advisor and as Youth Advisor for the California Suffolk and Hampshire Sheep Association and the National Junior Suffolk Sheep Association. Through his mentoring, many young individuals have succeeded in the livestock field as breeders, ag instructors, livestock judges and 4H leaders. It is because of his vision of the importance of youth in agriculture that we choose to honor Mr. Ream.
The obesity epidemic besieging the U.S. populace extends to our pet populations, with an estimated 37 percent increase in overweight or obese dogs and a shocking 90 percent increase in overweight or obese cats in the past 6 to 7 years. With these increasing rates of obesity in the nation’s pets, researchers and veterinarians have noted corresponding increases in the incidences of diabetes and other associated diseases. Feline diabetes, for example, has experienced a fivefold increase in the last 30 years. As in humans, diabetes is very serious but a diagnosis of pet diabetes is not a death sentence. With proper treatment and a revised diet, pets can live comfortably for the remainder of their lives. For more information, read this article from PetsMatter (a publication from the American Animal Hospital Association).
