Washington Ag Today May 3, 2011 Oregon State University Extension Specialist Silvia Rondon and her team are gearing up to offer a fourth Insect Identification Train-the-Trainer short course. Rondon along with other University faculty from Oregon and Washington have already trained 3 groups of volunteers that learned to identify insects of the Pacific Northwest and then help others do the same.

This Train-the-Trainer short course will be held at the Washington State University Extension Office in Kennewick May 25th through the 27th. There is no charge for the course but signing up now is strongly recommended as class space is limited. For more information contact Steve Van Vleet at 509-397-6290.

Now the report from Stockland Livestock.

This is Jack McGuinness here at Stockland Livestock in Davenport. 13-hundred head of cattle on the market Monday. Fully steady on the cows. Lot of cows in the 80-dollar money again. Bulls same story there, $1.05 tops, limited test of bulls however. Feeder cattle, good run of feeder cattle and cow-calf pairs. Top of 16-hundred on the pairs. Lot of people. Lot of consignors here. Working on pretty much a steady market all the way around.

I want to remind folks that we are going to change our program here in June. In June we will sell small animals one day a month, that will be fourth or last Tuesday of every month.

All here at Stockland Livestock. Call us anytime at 509-535-2444.

Thanks Jack.
