May / June Newsletter

Brian Higby - Monday, May 20, 2019

The 411..

 

     The rain has finally stopped, thank goodness! I know we needed it but man was it wet and miserable around here for a few months. On top of that there was a brief shortage of shavings state wide. On top of the increased demand the manufacturers were not able to extract the raw materials out of the hills because of the weather. With the change in the weather production is back to normal and we are well stocked.

 

     With the nice weather comes the honey do lists and projects. If your list is short and you’re looking for something to add, you want to re-purpose an old trough or need an excuse to buy a new one, we’ve got you covered! With a little inspiration from our friends at Dawson’s Bar and Grill and some help from our friends at Dixon Ace Hardware we made this cool planter box. It can be home to all kinds of flowers, vines or even vegetables. Speaking of vegetables, its time to start getting those planted! Troughs make a great raised bed for them. In other news, we just received a load of new oat hay and by the middle of May we should have new rye, and new 3-way mix (oat, wheat, beardless barley). The new hay I have seen looks beautiful.

 

     It is almost Mayfair time again! We would like to thank all our loyal customers who have trusted us when it comes to feeding and caring for their animals. And wish all the exhibitors the best of luck on show day. FFA and 4-H teach our youth life skills in areas like science, health agriculture and civic engagement. It helps them to grow confidence, independence, resilience and compassion. It teaches good sportsmanship, strong worth ethics and community services. The hands-on approach these programs provide gives young people guidance and tools and empowers them to be true leaders in our community! Please consider supporting them with their projects in the future at the Jr. Livestock Auction by purchasing their animal or making a donation toward the purchase of their animal. Also consider donating to Bids for Kids, a local non-profit dedicated to supporting the FFA, 4-H and Independent Livestock Exhibitors. Bids for Kids is run by volunteers and raises money to buy animals at the Dixon May Fair Livestock Auction as well as the Solano County Jr. Livestock Auction.

-May was named for Maia the Greek-goddess of fertility. The rodents around here have taken this very seriously!

-May’s birthstone is an Emerald which is emblematic of love and success.

-May was once considered a bad luck month to get married. There was even a poem written that says “Marry in May and you’ll rue the day” Our verdict is still out on this...Scott will have been married for 22 years this month...stay tuned!

-On May 1, 1931, the Empire State Building was officially opened.

-June 19, 1845, the very first baseball game was played.

-In 2009, June was the 662 most popular girls name.

-June is the month with the longest daylight hours of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and the shortest daylight hours of the year in the Southern Hemisphere. June in the Northern Hemisphere is the seasonal equivalent to December in the Southern Hemisphere and vice versa.

 

Thank you for your business!
