FBLA members will compete at nationals Two Rock Hills FBLA members recently learned they have earned the right to compete at the National Lead- ership Conference this summer. Holden Mauerhan and Davis Schleifer were informed last week that their score in the virtual business management com- puter simulation that they competed in virtually throughout February placed them in the top eight in the category. This has earned them the opportunity to virtually manage a business in the national competition held June 27 through July 2 in Atlanta, Ga. According to Mauerhan, during the virtual simulation, they had to create a profitable bicycle business and handle a variety of situations throughout the months the simulation encompassed. For example, they had to make all decisions for the business, including factory layout, parts purchasing, mar- keting, and human resources. At the national competition, the duo will face opponents in a double elimination for- mat based on amount of profit made in a 20 minute period. Dr. Barbara Railsback, FBLA ad- viser, said, "this is not an easy business venture for students who have very little life experience in a production setting. Strategic planning, marketing, financial forecasting and management are all skills utilized in this virtual competition. Holden and Davis de- voted many hours to learning how the program ran and many more hours working through the competition cycle. They truly have to use a lot of vision thinking and utilize knowledge they have." ~i " ~ .~... - " Thursday, March 10, 2016 JEWELL COUNTY RECORD 4A Holden Mauerhan and Davis Schleifer compete in the FBLA Virtual Business Challenge this summer Ga.

Now is the time to make sure your bulls are ready to perform when the trailer gate opens and they're dumped out to pasture. What should I be doing to make sure my bulls are ready? There are several key components to making sure that your bulls are ready. First let's talk about breeding sound- ness exams. Breeding soundness ex- ams should be conducted 30 to 60 days before the start of breeding. The prac- tice of conducting a breeding sound- ness exam provides personal insur- ance that your bulls are fertile and capable of breeding. A breeding soundness exam in- cludes a semen evaluation for semen motility and semen morphology (the structure and form of the sperm cells), detailed examination of the reproduc- tive tract itself, and a physical exami- nation including structural soundness and scrotal shape and size. Remember, a breeding soundness exam does not observe the bull' s libido, only his abil- ity to breed. With the presence of Trichomonia- sis, otherwise known as Trich, across the state, it is important to make sure you Trich test non-virgin bulls at the time of the breeding soundness exam as well Trich is a venereal disease which causes fetal loss in cows. It can be catastrophic to cow herds. In order for the test to work, the bulls must be sexually rested for 14 days prior to testing. Another thing to focus on with bulls is their nutritional status. Just as we do in cows, it is important to body condi- tion score your bulls. On a scale of 1- 9, (1 emaciated-9 obese) the optimum body condition score for bulls is 6. Included in nutrition is making sure an adequate vitamin and mineral package is provided. Pay close attention to Vi- points and took down a rebound, tamin A.

Spencer Callaway, playing his final game for the Grizzlies, topped the scor- ing list with 10 points. He picked off two rebounds. Tycen Higer put up eight points and pulled down a rebound. Jacob Spiegel netted four points and grabbed three rebounds Grant Davis, making his final appearance as a Griz- zly, dropped through four points and nabbed two rebounds. Tucker Johanek, as a Lady Grizzly, led the scoring against Pike Valley with 12 points. Though the Lady Grizzlies failed to post a win for the season, they played their hardest each game. Injuries and a reduced roster size contributed to their woes. The team loses Railsback, who graduates, for the upcoming season, but the core of the team will return and take to the court a more experienced unit.

"16 Bulls are a critical part to every cow calf producer's operation. It is impor- tant that they are taken care of properly to ensure their best performance when it becomes "game time." The cost of breeding soundness exams and Trich tests are far cheaper than the cost of open cows. Remember, just because your bull performed last year, does not mean he will do the same this year. With proper nutrition and timely vac- cinations, you are setting your bulls up for success. Protection offered for uninsured crops In agriculture, opportunity is often created from overcoming challenges. So when I hear people say "work for the best and prepare for the worst," it is the American farmers and ranchers who come to mind because they char- acterize the optimism and resilience of the very concept, especially when it comes to overcoming severe weather. And although many farmers and ranchers carry insurance on their crops and livestock, insurance isn't always available for everything that can be grown or produced. For example, with many specialty crops, like vegetables and fruits, or floriculture, nursery, or livestock forage, private insurance for losses from weather damage may not be available. That's why the USDA's Farm Ser- vice Agency (FSA) offers help to pro- ducers through the Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP), which provides f'mancial assistance to producers of noninsurable crops when low yields, loss of inventory, or pre- vented plantings occur due to natural disasters. NAP has existed for 21 years; for the majority of that time, it provided only catastrophic coverage for losses of more than 50 percent of expected production. That catastrophic cover- age, still available, pays 55 percent of the average market price. Today, not only does NAP provide a safety-net for specialty crop produc- ers working to make healthy fruits and vegetables available to more consum- ers, the program also covers aquacul- ture, turf grass, ginseng, honey, syrup, and even organic and energy crops. Higher levels of coverage are avail- able for losses up to 65 percent of production and 100 percent of the av- erage market price. Basic coverage fees are $250 per crop or $750 per producer per admin- istrative county, whichever is less. No producer pays more than $1,875. In fact, for beginning, traditionally underserved, or limited resource pro- ducers,' the catastrophic coverage is free, and premiums for higher levels of protection are discounted by 50 per- cent.
