Cotton Plowdown Dates Set

Cotton Plowdown Dates Set

It’s that time of year again!

All cotton stalks must be shredded, uprooted, and plowed by December 20, 2013. Starting on the 20th, the staff of the County Agricultural Commissioner/Sealer’s Office will be citing fields that are not in compliance with the regulations. Fines for non-compliance are set at $500 plus $5.00 per acre.

Cotton growers are required to comply with the Cotton Plowdown Regulations.The regulations were established in 1967 to combat the threat of spreading populations of Pink Bollworm, a worldwide pest of cotton.

This means anyone planting cotton in the San Joaquin Valley must shred and uproot cotton stalks, and then mix the debris with the soil. Doing this was shown to kill overwintering Pink Bollworm larvae.

Which Table Scraps Can Hurt or Kill Your Pet

Thanksgiving is a special time to share with family and friends. We gather to share gratitude for all we are so fortunate to have. Cooks create delicious holiday aromas that fill the air. Celebration time with family and food can lead pet parents to become overly generous to their pets.

The Central California Animal Disaster Team offers these important tips to keep your pets healthy, safe and the entire family happy for Thanksgiving:

§                     Diet and Exercise - Maintain your pet’s regular meal and exercise schedule and avoid feeding them any holiday leftovers. A disruption in his dietary routine can cause stomach upset, diarrhea and/or vomiting.
