DROUGHT SEASON...The remnants of hurricane Katrina brought some relief to drought stressed areas of Kentucky, but whether it was a enough to make a difference remains to be seen. This month we will see how the drought has affected one farmer and what UK Extension Specialists are recommending for the rest of this season.

  UK/EKU DAIRY MERGER…The merger of the University of Kentucky and Eastern Kentucky University’s dairy operations is one step closer with the approval of funds for the design phase. Eventually, UK’s dairy will be moved to EKU’s Meadowbrook Farm where the new jointly managed and operated dairy will be located.
 
FORESTRY SIGNING/GREEN PROGRAM…Two important agreements have taken place involving the University of Kentucky. UK President Lee Todd and Kentucky Governor Ernie Fletcher pledged their support to the Appalachian Regional Reforestation Initiative to get more trees planted on coal mined lands. UK has also joined with the Lexington Fayette Urban County Government and Fayette County Public Schools to promote a green community for a healthier environment which involves recycling and conserving resources.
 
TOBACCO PROGRAM…It’s called the Innovative Tobacco Growers Program and it is helping Kentucky’s tobacco farmers remain viable in today’s changing tobacco economy with the assistance of UK’s Cooperative Extension Service.
 

GRAPES AND WINE PRODUCTION…In the late 1800’s Kentucky was the third largest producer of grapes and wine until prohibition. Today that industry is making a strong comeback with more than 250 acres of grapes planted statewide.

 
  KY STATE FAIR…This month’s Extension Today on The Air is at this year’s Kentucky State Fair. People come to fair for many different reasons like the World Championship Horse Show, livestock competitions, the midway, live shows, music concerts and lots or other activities. We have some of the sights and sounds of this year’s 101st Kentucky State Fair.
