Page 4 THE JEWELL COUNTY POST Thursday, November28, 1996 FROM DEANNA'S DESK By DEA A SWEAT Fun, Not Frantic Turkey With Just a few days until families will sit down to Thanksgiving droners, here are a few last minute reminders to insure your meal preparations are fun, not frantic. Be sure that the roasting pan is large enough for your turkey or consider roasting two smaller birds versus one large bird. Allow an adequate number of days (I day per 5 pounds) to refrlgerator-defrost your frozen bird and don't for- get to find your meat ther- mometer. Before beginning and after working with the bird, wash hands, sink& counters, uten- sils and platters thoroughly with soap and hot water. Remember to remove the bag of giblets from inside the bird. Wash the inside and outside of the turkey in cold water and dram well. Place the turkey breast-side up in a shallow roasting pan and you may want to brush with oil or meRed margarine. Insert the meat thermometer in the inner thigh. Cover loosely with aluminum foil and roast for 15-18 minutes per pound. Remove foil 20-30 minutes before roasting is fin- iahed to allow the bird to brown. Remove turkey when dark meat reaches 180 degrees and allow the cooked turkey to sit for 20 minutes before carving. After dinner, carve leftovers from bone and refrigerate promptly (remember, you have only two hours from the time you take the bird from the oven). And don't forget to smile and enjoy your family and the meal you e prepared. Life's Little Tip: Spend less time worrying who's right, and more time deciding what's right.

Replacement heifer management Heifer calf management de- cisions that are made now will impact the success of calving first calf heifers in the spring of 1998. The target weight for the heifers going into breeding sea- son in May or June is to weigh 65 percent of the mature cow size. Generally that means that your heifers need to gain about 1 1/2 pounds per day from now until breeding season. Are you providing an adequate nutrition program?
