Don’t invite a FOG Clog to your home this Thanksgiving. When Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) are washed down the drain, it can cause blockages in your home and neighborhood sewer pipes. This results in messy and costly overflows. It’s bad for homes, the environment, and public health.

As the temperatures begin to drop, it’s important to be aware of the potential impact of prussic acid toxicity when grazing Sorghum or Johnsongrass. Plant stressors such as frost can increase prussic acid concentrations within the plants, making them toxic to ruminant animals (cattle, sheep, and goats). View the resources below to learn about signs of toxicity in cattle, and grazing considerations to reduce toxicity risk.
We are excited to kick off the Virginia Women in Agriculture Network! Our mission is to foster female farmers. The Women in Agriculture Network will hold once a month zoom session highlighting women farmers, offering opportunities for women to network, and educational opportunities. Our first meeting will take place on Tuesday, December 1st, at 7:30 pm. We will hear from Meredith Bernard who is known as “This Farm Wife” on YouTube. Meredith will share about her farming operation and experiences sharing about her farming life on YouTube.
