Transportation. Such a simple
convenience when available, but is
often taken for granted in everyday
But when this convenience is not
available, who can one rely on for
assistance when needed? Haakon
County Prairie Transport is there
to help.
Whether it is a trip to Rapid
City or outlying communities such
as Murdo, Pierre, Philip, White
River or Wanblee for medical ap-
pointments or downtown Kadoka
for shopping, it is a comfort know-
ing that one can call upon the
Haakon County Prairie Transport
to help get you where you need to
In 2004, Kadoka received a
small passenger bus from Haakon
County when a new bus was pur-
chased. Drivers, Glenn Vande-
Garde and Bill Stratton, stepped in
to volunteer to drive, and now, nine
years later the service is still help-
ing Kadoka residents.
Several people have volunteered
to drive the bus over the years and
current drivers, Marsha Sumpter,
Carol Solon and Jerry Baldwin,
enjoy providing the service and
helping area residents.
Each driver completes safety
training and is randomly screened
through the South Dakota Depart-
ment of Transportation.
Many miles were driven with
the first bus and in 2006 a new
smaller van was purchased. Since
the new van arrived in Kadoka, it
has provided safe, dependable
transportaion for many people to-
taling well over 100,000 miles.
The miles not only include trips
for appointments, but also include
vacation trips for a day, such as
going to the SD Capital in Pierre to
see the Christmas trees, a shop-
ping trip to Rapid City, or a tour of
the Badlands. Many residents
would not have the opportunity to
go otherwise if this service was not
To help with expenses and main-
tenance of van, minimal fees are
charged. The fees do not completely
cover the expenses, and the major-
ity of the funding is provided by do-
nations, fundraisers and memorial
Fuel, regular vehicle mainte-
nance and repairs are all done lo-
cally. Investing the funds back into
Kadoka by using these services, is
one way the transportation com-
mittee can thank those who help
support their service.
The bus transportation is regu-
lated by the Haakon County Trans-
portation Board, which consists of
seven members and Ruby Sanftner
is the local representative. Rides
can be scheduled by calling 837-
2023 or 441-2449.
Living in a rural area may re-
quire a bit traveling, which some
may view as disadvantage. What
they may forget to notice is the ad-
vantage of neighbor helping neigh-
bor, and that is one the foundations
of rural America and loved by those
who live here.

Elmer Williams was born on February 23, 1950 in Miles City, Montana.
The son of George and Irene Williams. Elmer’s family includes one
brother, Al, who lives in Vermont and a sister, Ruth, who lives in Rapid
City, along with one niece and two nephews.
Elmer worked in Custer as a lumberjack at the sawmill and also did a
lot of landscaping. Growing up he worked at quite a few jobs.
Elmer enjoys being outdoors, which includes taking daily walks. He
likes looking at yards and gardens and enjoys gardening.
Playing Bingo is a favorite game of Elmer’s, but he will play almost
any card game. He always takes part in craft time and doing crafts is a
favorite pastime.
Christmas time is his favorite holiday and over the years he has col-
lected may Santa Claus figurines.
“We all love Elmer here at the Kadoka Nursing Home,” said the staff,
“he’s always helping someone out each day!”

Years ago, loans were given
based upon the word of the cus-
tomer. There were no credit re-
ports. Today, loans are based on the
customer’s credit report score and
require much more information be
disclosed by the customer in order
to be approved.
During the course of her years at
the bank, Marlene worked as a
teller, bookkeeping administrator,
and is currently a loan officer at
BankWest. When asked what her
favorite part of the job would be,
Marlene said, “I enjoy the personal
loans the best. With the personal
loans, I can see firsthand how I am
helping the customer.”
Marlene’s personal life has kept
her hard at work as well. While
working at the bank, Marlene has
raised all six of her children,
Melissa, Colleen, John, Laney, Lisa
and Bert. She, also, continues to
ranch with her husband, Mike, on
their ranch east of Belvidere.
Marlene feels like she has the
best job in town. She enjoys work-
ing with bank manager Gene
Christensen and all her coworkers
at the bank. “The bank feels like
part of my home,” shares Marlene.
While working at the bank, Mar-
lene has developed many strong re-
lationships within the community
as well.
Working at the bank has also
given Marlene the opportunity to
spend her weekends and evenings
with her family and continue to
take pleasure in her love of the
Here is hoping Marlene’s next 40
years are as great as her last 40.

For the past 40 years Marlene
Perault’s smiling face has greeted
countless customers who have
walked through the doors of Bank
West. Throughout those 40 years
there have been many changes to
the bank and banking industry.
The one thing that has not changed
over those years is Marlene’s com-
mitment to her career at the bank.
Before beginning at the bank,
Marlene was working at the
Kadoka Nursing Home. Nona
Prang approached her and asked
her if she would be interested in a
job at the bank. Keith Prang,
Nona’s husband, worked at the
bank and felt Marlene would be an
asset to the bank.
Marlene Perault began working
as a teller for the bank in February
1973. At that time, the bank was
still the Kadoka branch of the
Belvidere State Bank. In 1978, the
Belvidere State Bank was pur-
chased by a Pierre banker, and the
bank’s name was changed to Bad-
lands State Bank. In 1980, as Mar-
lene continued her work at the
bank, changes continued to take
place. The Pierre National Bank
aquired the Badlands State Bank
of Kadoka and Belvidere as
branches and changed the name,
thus becoming BankWest, N.A.
Marlene not only experienced
changes in name, but also changes
in how the bank was operated over
the years. Before all the technology
of today’s banks, checks and cash
were the the main source of pay-
ment for everything. Checks were
sorted and alphabetized by hand
everyday, and that information was
posted in a ledger by the teller.
She remembers when every
business had a set of counter
checks available. Customers could
write a counter check to the busi-
ness and tell the business what
bank to draw the check off of.
There were not any account num-
bers used just the word of the cus-
tomer. Today, debit cards are
predominantly used by everyone
which has eliminated much of the
time and paperwork for the bank

The Interior Volunteer Fire De-
partment will host a grand opening
of their new fire hall, Saturday,
April 13, starting at 6:00 p.m.
Firemen and other volunteers
will be serving burgers and brats,
beans, salads and chips. Guests
can dance to Phatt Daddy, a coun-
try western/rock band.
For the past ten years, members
of the IVFD have been planning a
new fire hall. In October, 2012,
they broke ground on a 60’x100’
building, with six 12’x12’ doors, a
meeting room, a kitchen and two
The building was built by the
IVFD members and area residents.
No grants or loans were taken out
on the building and the entire proj-
ect was paid for by contracting fire
trucks and personnel to help fight
fires in South Dakota, and through
community donations. The old fire
hall was 30’x30’ with one overhead
door. It contained five of the trucks.
The new fire hall is complete,
and equipment is moved in. Area
residents are being asked to please
come and enjoy a great evening of
food, music and beverage to help
celebrate a great accomplishment

Church Calendar
Read 1 Peter 5:5-7
Jesus’ life exemplified humility. He did not assert
His divine rights while on earth but instead left behind
the glory and authority to which He was entitled.
Cloaking himself with humanness, Jesus chose to be an
obedient servant of His Father (Phil. 2:5-8).
Our Savior’s example was and still is countercultural. This world does not value an attitude or lifestyle
of humility; rather, it applauds high achievement, outward beauty, elevated positions, or exceptional
skills. But God assures us that if we choose meekness—living in submission to Jesus as Master of our
lives—He will reward us in both this life and the life to come. (Matt. 5:5 niv).
In today’s verses, Peter outlines our options. Spiritual blessings are promised if we choose God’s way
of humility. But if we pridefully forsake His path, the Lord will oppose us because we are essentially
working against Him in arrogant self-sufficiency. However, when we humble ourselves by yielding to His
authority and desiring to obey Him, He will be our source of strength and confidence.
There’s something else to consider: Since we sometimes buy into the significance society places on in-
stant gratification, we tend to want recognition now. But God honors us according to His perfect way and
The decision is yours to make: Will you humble yourself and live for God’s glory rather than yours? Or
will you plot your own course and invite His opposition? If you’re wise, it’s not really much of a decision
after all. So take a look at your priorities and ask God to reveal any areas driven by pride.

Miriam Caroline (Hood) Rein-
hold went to be with the Lord on
Sunday morning, January 6, 2013,
in her home following an extended
illness. She was born August 13,
1925 to parents Carl and Pearl
(Norman) Hood in Pierre, South
Dakota. They later moved to
Kadoka, South Dakota where her
father became a rancher and her
mother a teacher.
Miriam married Earl Reinhold
on October 18, 1941 in Sundance,
Wyoming. From that union, three
daughters were born. While raising
a family, she continued her educa-
tion, earning a B.S. and a M.S.
from Phillips University in Enid,
After three years of teaching
high school English, speech and
drama, she accepted a position in
Waxahachie, teaching the same
courses at the college level at her
beloved SAGC, now Southwestern
Assemblies of God University. Dur-
ing this tenure, she took post grad-
uate studies at Baylor University.
She often reflected on how difficult
English had been for her and was
passionate about making it easy for
her students. This was typical of
her determination and compassion
for others.
Organizations which Miriam
greatly enjoyed were: DAR (40 year
membership), Delta Kappa
Gamma, AAUW, Texas Junior Col-
lege Speech and Theatre Associa-
tion and Roger Williams Family
Association (She was a proud de-
scendent of Roger Williams.)
She was a loving wife, mother,
grandma, aunt, cousin and friend.
She had a great sense of humor
and an incredible ability to see the
best in all people and circum-
stances. She was a faithful member
of University Church for 52 years.
Her church family was a very im-
portant part of her life. She was a
member of the Adult Sunday
School Class and greatly enjoyed
assisting with church banquets
and travelling with her husband on
Daystar tours. She was a mighty
prayer warrior who interceded on
behalf of her family through life’s
challenges. She will be greatly
missed by all who knew her.
Miriam is survived by daugh-
ters, Marilyn Thompson, and
Linda Edwards, and her husband,
Dean; son-in-law, Larry Wallace,
and wife, Michele, all of Waxa-
hachie; grandchildren, Cami Dodds
and husband, Bill, of Mansfield,

Rockett, Texas, Brandon Clement
of Waxahachie, and Brittanie
Thompson of Nashville, TN; great

abeth, Hadassah, and Eve Wallace.
She was preceded in death by
her husband of 61 years, Earl Rein-
hold, her daughter, Jeanette Wal-
lace, and son-in-law, Woody
Visitation was held Thursday,
Jan. 10 evening from 6-8 p.m. at

Edna Joy, age 94, of Midland,
S.D., died Friday, March 29, 2013,
at the Philip Nursing Home.
Edna M. Eckert was born on
July 10, 1918, to John and Marie
(Koerner) Eckert. She was raised
at the family farm nine miles south
of Midland. Edna was baptized and
confirmed at St. Peter’s Lutheran
Church. There were eight children
in the family, Edna being the oldest
girl was responsible for helping her
mother with the chores and
younger brothers and sisters. As a
young girl, she was not too excited
about playing with her doll as she
had real babies to tend to. She
walked or rode a horse to the coun-
try school two miles from her home
which she attended through the
eighth grade.
After the eighth grade, she
worked for other families babysit-
ting and other odd jobs. Edna went
to work for Fern and Archie Joy,
taking care of their children. There
she met her future husband,
Harold “Stub” Joy. They were mar-
ried about a year later. They hon-
eymooned in the Black Hills with a
new car Stub purchased for $600.
Together they worked long hours at
their service station and lived in an
apartment at the back of the
Their first child, Sharon Kay,

was 18 months old, they moved
into the house where Edna would
live for the next 63 years. In 1948,
a son, Larry Dale, joined the fam-
ily. As a family, they enjoyed vaca-
tioning in the Black Hills, fishing
and checking cows together. Their
home was a second home to many.
Edna moved to the Silverleaf As-
sisted Living in Philip in 2009. In
2012, she moved to the nursing
home in Philip. In both places she
was lovingly cared for by their out-
standing staff.

her community. She was in several
clubs and a member of the Trinity
Lutheran Church, where she was a
Sunday school teacher, Mission
Band leader and a member of Ruth
Circle. She enjoyed walking,
sewing and had made many quilts
for her family, and baking rolls and

I killed three birds with one
stone, so to speak, on Friday. We
had Good Friday services sched-
uled at the church so I called
around and set it up to have a
township meeting at the church
hall before services and a church
board meeting there afterwards. It
worked a treat. We were able to get
all three get-togethers done in one
This sort of thing doesn’t hap-
pen very often it seems. Lives tend
to be busy, and getting five or six
people to agree on a time and place
for a meeting may take awhile. As
a result, it’s a nice surprise when
everyone can come at the same
time. It just happened to work out
on Friday because those needed for
the meetings were coming to Good-
Friday services anyway. Coming a
little earlier or leaving a little later
didn’t make much difference.
When mileage and time are a
concern in this far-flung area
where going to town involves at
least a half hour both going and
coming, combining tasks just
seems a sensible idea. In other
words, I saved two hours of travel-
ing time alone on Friday by sched-
uling three meetings on the same
day. Then too, besides the expendi-
tures of travel time and gas money,
it interrupts a day to put down
your tools and run off to town.
Sometimes it’s hard to get much
else done on those days.
Similar organizational high
jinks have been going on all my
life, it seems, just because we live
so far out in the sticks. If you’re
going to go to town, you might as
well do a bunch of stuff so you
don’t have to return right away.
Wife Corinne learned early on in
our marriage that my trips to town
were apt to involve a whole lot of
stops. I might visit the post office,
bank, hardware store, grocery,
court house, gas station and sev-
eral other places. I might even
drop off eggs here and there. Ten
to fifteen stops were not uncom-
mon. After awhile, Corinne would
inquire where all I was planning to
go before agreeing to ride along. If
the number of stops seemed exces-
sive in her view, she might decide
she had too much work to do at
home and couldn’t go along that
day. If she had someone she could
visit in town while I dashed here
and there, that was okay. Other-
wise, forget it.
By the way, doing one job right
after another is just fine with us
fellows. What we aren’t too good at
is multitasking. Gals have the
edge on us there. They seem able
to keep several plates spinning on
sticks at the same time whereas
we guys prefer one at a time. I
even get a little frustrated when I
prepare some meals. I find it diffi-
cult to get the meat, potatoes, veg-
etable, salad and gravy all ready
at the same time. Far easier are
one-pot meals such as when you
throw a roast in the oven and later
add potatoes and carrots to the
same pan. Even simpler is un-
wrapping a frozen pizza and stick-
ing it in the oven for a while or
heating a can of soup. Simplicity
often wins the day.
This week, though, was a tri-
umph of scheduling. On Thursday,
we had to visit the clinic since son
Chance had a sore on his lip that
needed attention. After that, I sug-
gested we stop by the hairdresser
to see if we could all get haircuts
since Chance and I were getting
pretty shaggy. To my great sur-
prise, both gals happened to have
openings just then so Chance and
Corinne could get their hair
clipped at the same time with
mine being done just after. If we’d
come a little earlier or a little later,
it wouldn’t have worked out. We
happened to time it just right,
though, so it did. I was pleased.
As you might imagine, I’ve
about run my course on combining
events. Luckily, there is nothing
much on the schedule that would
require it. In other words, I have
no plans to kill any birds with any
stones. As far as I know, there is
actually nothing specific scheduled
for the rest of the year although
something will no doubt come up.
I can happily plod from bill paying
to accounting to cooking to going to
church. None of this multiple-
meeting business or multitasking.
That’s fine with me. That’s actu-
ally the way I prefer it. There
might even be enough time to sit
on the deck occasionally and listen
to the meadowlarks sing. They
have recently returned so the time
to enjoy them has, of necessity,
been added to my “busy” schedule.
Now might be a good time to go do
that. Catch you later.

rived from Rapid City on Friday to

p.m. Friday. Saturday’s balmy

Carol Ferguson was in White
River on business Monday morning

Ferguson, Cole Iyotte, Olivia Wood-
enKnife and Moya Brickman of

Bradley Huber spent the morning
at Bruce and Jessie’s; Nicole came
to pick him up after work and Risa
went along with them to spend the
afternoon. Bruce, Jessie and June
went in to Norris for the Head
Start Easter party. Wednesday was
Riley’s 5th birthday and he was
serenaded at the party. That
evening his birthday was cele-
brated again with supper at Bruce
and Jessie’s. Other guests attend-
ing were his parents, Reno and
Lisa, and June Ring.
Thursday was the Easter party
at the Long Valley School in the af-
ternoon. Ryan stayed overnight
after the party at his friend Daw-
son’s home. Friday Jessie took
Reno, Riley and Risa to Rosebud
for appointments, headed to Mar-
tin to run some errands there. They
then went on to pick up Ryan, have
lunch with the Rock’s, and then
come on home. Meanwhile Bruce
and Robert Ring went to Gordon,
NE, and traded combines. It took
longer than Bruce thought, plus
the fact that he was thinking that
Good Friday service didn’t start
until 8:00 p.m., and they barely
made it back in time for him to get
in on almost the tail end of the
service. They made it to church in
plenty of time on Sunday, as they
participated in the Easter potluck
breakfast before church. June Ring
was an Easter dinner guest after-
ward at their home. After a break
to let the bounteous meal settle,
egg hiding and hunting began. Hid-
ing over six dozen eggs took a
while, so it was done in teams of
two. Three rounds of that in the
rapidly chilling and windy weather
had everyone ready for a break and
snacks by 5 o’clock.
June went home and made some
more calls for news until time to go
to church in Parmelee, only to dis-
cover a sign on the door that it had
been held at noon that day! It
turned out okay, though, as that
way she was home when the
“Happy Easter” calls came from
Daniel and family in Washington
and Marcus and family in
May the joy and hope of Easter
continue in all your lives. He is
Risen! He is Risen Indeed!
Easter service was held at 7:30
a.m. on Sunday at the Belvidere
Church. Despite the early hour,
about 65 people came for services,
and many stayed for breakfast and
visiting at the church hall after-
wards. It was a pleasant day de-
spite the forecast. Good Friday
service with communion was held
on Friday evening. At the Friday
service, Bonnie Shoemaker of
Kadoka sang a song she had writ-
ten that was nicely done and ac-
companied by Ruth McCubbin.
Bonenbergers held their brand-
ing on Saturday with some 35 to 40
people showing up to help. They
calve earlier than many so their
branding is often the first of the
season. It was a good day for it, and
things went well. Keith and Pam’s
daughter, Alisha Summerville, of
Mitchell was here for the weekend
and could help some. Alisha lives in
Mitchell, and, although she isn’t as
involved with gymnastics now as
she was in high school, she still
helps direct cheerleading and in-
corporates some gymnastics into
that. Her daughter, Joslin, has also
been known to carry on the tradi-
tion with summersaults and other
moves being occasionally displayed
in the living room.
Kenny, Roxie and Wade Fox sold
some calves at Ft. Pierre on Friday.
These were some smaller ones that
had been kept back last fall. Sons
Jesse and Shawn often come to
help with cattle events, but they
couldn’t this time. Jesse had things
at work that kept him too busy. Ac-
cording to Roxie, Shawn was prob-
ably too busy playing with his new
baby. That evening, Kenny at-
tended church in Belvidere and
stayed for a board meeting after-
Mary Johnston attended Easter
service in Belvidere on Sunday.
Then she joined Larry, Jo, and
Jenny Johnston for a trip to Martin
where they had dinner with Mary’s
granddaughter, Linay Baker, and
family. Linay has three children.
The oldest is Alex, and the three-
year-old twins are Hallie and Hay-
den. Mary said she enjoys being
around her great grandchildren of
which there are now several and
with another on the way.
Michelle and Tyrel Mansfield
were in Rapid City from Thursday
and until Saturday, visiting
Michelle’s folks. Back at home, Al-
lison Davis came from Osage, WY,
to help out some since Aaron hadn’t
been feeling very well, and Jim had
been clipped in the head by some
equipment and wasn’t moving as
fast as usual. Everyone felt good
enough on Sunday, however, to at-
tend church services in Belvidere.
Betty Kusick visited Dolores
Obr on Monday. On Tuesday, one
side of her face started to hurt so
she consulted Dr. Webb in Kadoka
who diagnosed a case of shingles.
As a result, Betty said she has been
full of pills all week since she
needed to take five prednisone pills
the first day and decrease that
number during the rest of the
week. She went back to the clinic
on Friday where Dr. Klopper said
the pills were working and to keep
taking them. Betty’s kids, Kenny,
Kathy, and Loretta, were all con-
cerned enough that they showed up
at the clinic on Tuesday when
Betty was there. They have been
keeping in touch ever since. Betty
felt good enough on Friday to go to
church that evening. On Saturday,
she went to Kadoka for a birthday
party that Kenny and Chris put on
for Chris’ dad, Art Mednansky.
Betty also visited Bunny Green on
Friday at the nursing home in
Kadoka. Bunny is still very happy
with being at the nursing home,
but Ruby Sanftner said the home
was full at the moment and
couldn’t take any more residents.
Betty said that was okay since she
wasn’t quite ready to move in any-
Scot and Jodie O’Bryan had
their daughter, Faye, and her three
children home for the Easter week-
end. They came on Friday and
stayed until Monday. Jodie and the
kids were able to get in all the nor-
mal Easter stuff concerning color-
ing, hiding and finding eggs etc. All
the sons, though, instead of coming
here, gathered in Ft. Worth, Texas,
at Scotty’s. That included Taylor,
Wacey and Grady. All the boys cur-
rently live in Texas except Taylor
who drove there with his wife and
two kids. Scot said they are still
into calving at their place and are
even getting a few new colts. Alex
and Amy Smiley have been at
O’Bryans most days last week so
Alex could do some riding with
Jodie. She goes to college in Brook-
ings. Amy is still recovering from
an accident that gives her double
vision on one side so she was con-
tent to mostly sit, watch and enjoy
the fresh air. Jodie also said that
Faye’s baby girl wasn’t too sure
about horseback riding the first
day she was given a ride, but, in
true O’Bryan fashion, she took to it
on the second day. On Monday,
more riding was being considered
and maybe another go-round of
Easter egg hunting. Jodie wasn’t
sure how many times eggs could be
hidden and found, but obviously
several times or until the dog starts
finding them first.
Nancy Schofield went to Mid-
land on Sunday morning for serv-
ices at the Lutheran Church.
Afterwards, there was a Fosheim
family gathering and meal to at-
tend where Nancy got to visit with
a lot of relatives she doesn’t get to
see very often except perhaps at fu-
nerals. It was good to see everyone.
Meanwhile, Kirby Schofield stayed
home and helped John Dolezal
with chores. Jamie Dolezal took
her son, Travis, to Midland for an
Easter egg hunt on Sunday and
then had dinner with Betty Sinkey.
Kirby has recently completed a
course of cancer treatments and is
just now waiting and hoping they
did the job. A doctor appointment is
coming up soon to check on that.
Nancy said they had to go to Rapid
City so many times for treatments
that they decided to vary the rou-
tine by taking a different exit into
town every time just to see if they
could still get to the right place and
get a different view on the way. She
said that’s about as wild and crazy
as they get, but it was an interest-
ing diversion.
The fire season started a little
too early this year according to
Mike Perault. The top power line
down in their breaks broke loose
and sparked with the lower one to
start a fire. Mike said it burned
some of their ground and some of
Lyle O’Bryan’s. He estimated forty
acres burned altogether. On Easter,
Marlene and Bert Perault went to
Long Valley to have dinner with
their daughter/sister, Melissa Van-
derMay, and family. Bud and Va-
lene Perault went along. They also
stopped in Kadoka and picked up
Lillian Carlson and James Carl-
son’s daughter, Jaelyn. Laney Waln
and her family were there from
Martin as well. Since Laney has
four kids and Melissa has two,
there was plenty of activity and the
house was fairly full. Marlene said
they all had a good time.

method of processing, amount and
type of protein, and presence of fat
and lactose. Some research has
shown that the addition of some
colostrum supplements may actu-
ally reduce IgG absorption from
natural colostrum," Kincheloe said.
In general, Kincheloe says the
three sources of IgG in colostrum
products are derived by lacteal se-
cretions, like milk, whey, or
colostrum; bovine serum extracts
or chicken eggs.
Kincheloe points to the results
from one study comparing the effi-
ciency of IgG absorption in a bovine
serum product (BSP), cow
colostrum (MC; control), and two
commercial milk-derived supple-
ments; the results indicate that the
initial concentration of IgG is an
important consideration when
choosing a powdered supplement.
"Feeding a greater amount of a
product containing low concentra-
tions of IgG can actually result in
decreases in absorption efficiency,
so it is best just to feed a higher
quality product initially," Kincheloe
"Be sure to carefully read and
follow the manufacturer's instruc-
tions since products may vary in
how they are mixed and the num-
ber of recommended feedings.
Plasma IgG tests may be recom-
mended in situations of high mor-
bidity/mortality to determine
prevalence of FTP and the efficacy
of colostrum management in the
herd," Kincheloe said.
To learn more, visit iGrow.org
and to read an iGrow article dis-
cussing the critical role of
colostrum in providing passive im-
munity to the calf visit,
Research indicates that the
ability of colostrum to provide
passive immunity to the calf is
often limited by low concentration
of colostral immunoglobulins, in-
sufficient methods of feeding
colostrum, and limited absorption
of immunoglobulins in the calf,
says Janna Kincheloe, SDSU Ex-
tension Research Associate.
"Good quality colostrum should
contain more than 50 grams per
liter of IgG, which is the primary
immunoglobulin in colostrum,"
Kincheloe said. "Quality may be
inadequate if dams are young, nu-
tritionally stressed, have a poor
immune status, or produce large
volumes of lower quality milk."
Colostrum-deprived calves are
50 to 75 times more likely to die
within the first three weeks of life,
most of them in the first week.
Kincheloe says producers can con-
firm the level of IgG found in
colostrum by testing it for anti-
body content. She adds that it is
important to know the quality of
colostrum being produced by the
cow to be able to determine which
type of product - supplement or re-
placer - is recommended for a
given situation.
Although commercially avail-
able colostrum supplements or re-
placers can play an important role
in calf health, Kincheloe says for
best results, producers need to un-
derstand the differences in these
products based on their formula-
tions and how to use them for op-
timum results.
"Failure of passive transfer
(FPT) can be determined by a test
evaluating plasma IgG concentra-
tion within 24 to 48 hours after
birth," Kincheloe said.
She explains that the critical
level used to indicate FPT in
calves is less than 10 grams per
liter. Products are classified by
their ability to raise plasma IgG
concentrations. Colostrum supple-
ments do not raise the plasma
concentration above the species
standard of 10 grams per liter,
while replacement products do.
The USDA Center for Veteri-
nary Biologics regulates
colostrum products containing
IgG. In general, products that con-
tain less than 100 grams IgG/dose
are categorized as colostrum sup-
plements, and are designed to be
used when feeding low or medium
quality colostrum.
Kincheloe says replacer prod-
ucts can be used to completely re-
place colostrum, as they contain
greater than 100 grams IgG/dose
and also supply additional nutri-
ents required by the calf (carbohy-
drates, protein, fat, vitamins and
minerals). Research results indi-
cate that calves fed replacer prod-
ucts perform similarly to those fed
maternal colostrum in terms of
IgG levels, health, and growth
"However, the quantity of IgG
provided by each product does not
accurately predict how much is ac-
tually available to the calf,"
Kincheloe said.
Kincheloe explains that the
amount of IgG that can be meas-
ured in the plasma 24 hours after
birth is known as the apparent ef-
ficiency of absorption (AEA).
Research data suggests that
absorption efficiencies typically
range from 20 to 35 percent in ma-
ternal colostrum and many sup-
plements. Most veterinarians
recommend that calves receive
100 grams of IgG within the first
24 hours of birth; however, effi-
ciency of absorption must be con-
sidered when determining type
and amount of supplement to be
provided.Considering average
AEA's of most products, the actual
amount of IgG consumed should
be between 103 and 180 grams in
order to reach the critical plasma
level of 10 grams per liter.
"Factors that can affect AEA
may include source of IgG,
Colostrum supplements and replacers:

Early Season Wheat
Disease Update
While winter wheat producers
are anxiously waiting for warmer
temperatures to see if there is a
chance of a crop, and spring wheat
producers are waiting for the op-
portunity to plant, there are re-
ports of rust development in
several southern states in wheat
fields and nurseries. Leaf and
stripe rust have already been
found in Texas, even earlier than
2012, which was much earlier than
normal. Stripe rust has also been
observed in Mississippi, Arkansas
and Louisiana. Stripe rust was
seen in Arkansas back in the be-
ginning of December, which may
be the earliest it has ever been
seen it there.
South Dakota producers will
need to watch the progression up
from Texas this year because it
could be a concern if the conditions
are right. Reports of stripe rust
and leaf rust from Texas are im-
portant, because weather systems
often transport the rust spores
from these regions into Oklahoma,
Kansas and on up through Ne-
braska to South Dakota. If stripe
and/or leaf rust continues to de-
velop in the southern states, pro-
ducers may need to evaluate the
feasibility of fungicide applications
on susceptible varieties.
SDSU Extension Plant Pathol-
ogy Specialists and Field Special-
ists strive to keep producers
informed, but growers can also
monitor the situation on the USDA
Cereal Rust Laboratory website:
.htm?docid=9757. On that website,
visitors can access the current rust
situation, 2013 and past years’ ce-
real rust bulletins, rust observa-
tion maps, and a wealth of infor-
mation on cereal diseases. Univer-
sity and private individuals can
also submit rust and other cereal
disease observations for their area
to contribute to the reports.
New Fusarium Head Blight
Prediction Center
The Fusarium Head Blight
Prediction Center has been re-
designed and the new version is
now active. The growth stage in
which wheat is vulnerable to
Fusarium Head Blight (FHB or
scab) is certainly a ways off for
South Dakota, but it’s good to be
aware of the tool, which can be ac-
cessed at:
The website offers risk as-
sessment for roughly the eastern
half of the United States. Visitors
can choose a state to zoom in on
their area, choose the model of ei-
ther spring or winter wheat, the
susceptibility of the variety and
see an overview of the risk of scab
for their location.
The map is populated
with both FAA and AgNet weather
stations, which can be clicked for
up-to-date information at the site.
More detailed information can be
accessed by clicking “Query”, and
then the weather station of your
choice. Scab risk and probability,
temperature, precipitation and hu-
midity are shown for the previous
week at that site.
