Marketing and livestock han- dling specialist Bud Williams of Bowie, Tex says, "Love your land, not your animals." That motto should be the law of the land in this time of drought. Ranch managers have many options to consider with the eminent drought, and many have some tough decisions to make. As managers we must make the best decisions with the information we have to protect the health of the land now and into the future. Many of our ar- eas have received less than 40 per cent of their normal rainfall this year, which means we can expect less than 50 per cent of our normal grass growth in 2006. Does that mean we can run the same number of animals that we do in a normal year? Let's find out. Shamrock is a three-genera- tion ranch located in southwest Nebraska. The operation con- sists of 4900 deeded acres and 2500 acres of leased rangeland. The annual rainfall is 18" most of which arrives between April and June. Moore has operated ' the ranch since 1982 and was joined by her husband Dwight Maseberg, DVM, in 1996 when he sold his veterinary practice. Their philosophy is to let the " cow do the work which keeps their labor force down to just Maseberg and Moore, with oc- casional day help. Shamrock. faced a severe drought in 2002 and completely liquidated their cow-calf herd. It was a tough decision, but look- ing back Moore says there just wasn't any grass. The pictures tell the story. Shamrock was able to restock to 60 per cent of its normal cow herd in 2004 and added custom grazed yearlings to the opera- tion for flexibility. Moore indicated this drought is deepening, strengthening, and wider spread than 2002. She will share her story including what went well and what could have been better regarding her deci- sions in 2002. She will also up- date us on the options we have now.

I recently found this obscure bitof information tucked in the annalsofhistory, itis interesting--to say the least. In the winter of 1777-78 General George Washington sent this urgent appeal to the Governor of Pennsylvania. It read; "Unless aid comes, our affairs must soon become desperate beyond the possibility of recovery. The army must disband or starve." Jacob De Haen, who lived adjacent to Valley Forge, believed so strongly in freedom that he lent $50,000 in gold and around $400,000 in supplies. The army survived, independence triumphed. De Haen tded to collect the debt after the war. He was offered continental money, but he felt it was worthless and field out for gold - apparently without success he died penniless in 1812. But Jacob De Haen's loan saved the cause of freedom. If so, all of us are in debt to him -- a truly unpayable debt. As I read that story it reminded me of another unpayable debt and the story about the one who paid it. God's word plainly states it. "For. the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. "Romans 6:23 (NIV). The Bible, God's Word, plainly tells us that we have all sinned and need a Savior. Only through Him can our sins be forgiven and will we have eternal life. "If we confessor sins He will forgive our sins He will cleanse us from all the wrongs we have done." I John 1:9 (NCV) The words to this little chorus say it all, "He paid a debt He did not owe, I owed a debt I could not pay. I needed someone to wash my sins away. And now I sing a brand new song Amazing Grace. ' Christ Jesus paid a debt that I could never pay." The truth is -- To us it's an unpayable debt. Jesus paid it so you and I can be free from sins bondage, Just believe it and receive it. You are loved, Pastor Mike Blatchley God Cares And We Care!
