SDSU Extension and partners offer grazing planning opportunities
Compared with agronomy and
cropping sciences, grazing and
grassland production generally
require less economic input.
Because of this, there can be the
misconception that grazing man-
agement is an enterprise that
requires less forethought and
management, explained Pete Bau-
man, SDSU Extension Range
Field Specialist.
"This assumption was chal-
lenged over the past year as pro-
ducers managing grazing land
were required to respond to a
drought that still lingers in the
southwest portion of the state," he
He added that those producers
who were caught off guard were
forced to make adjustments they
may not have been prepared for,
such as drastic reductions in herd
"Those that had a sound man-
agement plan may also have had
to de-stock, but their decisions
were based on certain indicators
and triggers that were pre-deter-
mined by their management plan,"
Bauman said.
What producers learned
from Managing Drought Risk
on the Ranch webinars
SDSU Extension encourages
producers to incorporate improved
planning into grazing systems
management. To aid them in their
efforts, earlier this year SDSU
Extension, in cooperation with the
National Drought Mitigation Cen-
ter, hosted the Managing Drought
Risk on the Ranch webinar series
to South Dakota producers at our
SDSU Extension Regional Centers
throughout the state.
During these sessions, produc-
ers were exposed to several
drought tools and planning
resources that are still easily
accessible to all. Drought and
ranch planning resources are list-
ed below:
•National Drought Mitigation
Center: http://drought.unl.edu/

What’s Behind Our Moral Decline?
by Pastor Cornelius R. Stam
One does not have to be a prude to conclude that our country is suffering a serious moral decline. Our rulers and law enforcement agencies seem pow-
erless to cope with it. Campaigns to check it seem vain. J. Edgar Hoover of the FBI warned us again and again that the alarming rate of this downward trend
would spell ruin for America if not checked soon. But what most people fail to realize is that behind this moral decline there is a spiritual decline. America
has departed from God and His Word.
Paul’s letter to the Romans tells us how the heathen got that way. Rom. 1:21,22 says: “When they knew God they glorified Him not as God, neither were
thankful, but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise they became fools,” and the verses
that follow tell how God finally had to “give them up” to “uncleanness” and “vile affections”–all because “they did not like [wish] to retain God in their
knowledge” (Ver. 28).
St. Paul further describes them in Eph. 4:17-19, as walking “in the vanity of their mind, having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life
of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart; who being past feeling [conscience] have given themselves over to las-
civiousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.” This, sad to say, is an accurate description of increasing numbers in America today. They are throw-
ing off restraint and going after uncleanness “with greediness.”
But this is not liberty, it is enslavement. It is not a sign of strength, but of weakness. It does not indicate superior intelligence, but grossest ignorance, and
is the result of alienation from God.
How much better off are those who have come to know God through Christ! Of these the Apostle says:
“And you, who were once alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath He reconciled, in the body of His flesh, through death, to
present you holy and unblameable and unreprovable in His sight” (Col. 1:21,22).

Wilbert Jerry Lebeda
Lyn Peters
Wilbert Jerry Lebeda was born
the son of Thomas and Sophia
(Kroupa) Lebeda on Friday, April
27, 1923, in Murdo, South Dakota.
Wilbert grew up in Murdo,
South Dakota, and finished the
7th grade, when he had to quit
school and go to work during the
depression. He served with the
U.S. Navy as Fireman First Class
from 1946 to 1948 during World
War II. He married Eva Graves in
Mitchell, South Dakota, on Sep-
tember 5, 1950. Wilbert worked in
road construction driving heavy
trucks, and the job required the
family to move around to several
states. He then worked as a
mechanic for many years. During
this time he received his GED at a
college in Oklahoma, and he
attended college to further his
mechanic education. The family
moved to Newberg the day after
Christmas in 1967, and Wilbert
worked for General Chainbar in
Tigard for many years. He later
worked as a janitor for Service
Master cleaning service. In his
younger days, he enjoyed hunting
and fishing. Wilbert also enjoyed
working on cars, gardening, read-
ing the paper, and spending time
with his family.
On Monday, June 24, 2013,
Wilbert Jerry Lebeda died at a
local healthcare facility when he
was ninety years, one month and
twenty-eight days of age.
Wilbert is survived by his wife
of 62 years, Eva Lebeda of New-
berg; his son Steve of Newberg;
three brothers, James of Wyoming,
Fred of Michigan, and Tom of
South Dakota; four sisters, Julia
Broecher of South Dakota,
Annebelle McDaniel of South
Dakota, Betty Beck of South Dako-
ta, and Leone Kreager of Nebras-
ka; ten grandchildren; fifteen
great-grandchildren; and those
who have come to know and appre-
ciate him where he has lived and
worked. His parents, Thomas and
Sophia; two sons Tom and
Dwayne; five brothers Daniel,
Kenneth, Leonard, Antone, and
Bernard; and his sister, Helen
Andrews, preceded him in death.
A Recitation of the Rosary was
held at St. Peter Catholic Church
in Newberg on Monday, July 1,
2013 and his funeral mass fol-
lowed. Following a luncheon, a
committal service was held at Val-
ley View Memorial Cemetery in
Newberg with military honors.
Attrell’s Newberg Funeral Chapel,
a Golden Rule funeral home, was
in charge of arrangements. Online
condolences may be made at
Lyn Peters, formerly of Murdo,
passed away July 21, 2013, in
Killdeer, N.D., following an ATV
accident. Services in Killdeer will

11:00 a.m. (MT) at St. John
Lutheran Church.
Memorial services will also be
held in Murdo on August 3, 2013,
at 2:00 p.m. at the Community
Bible Church.

Low test weight wheat
Although many wheat fields
appear to be a week or more away
from harvest maturity, those in
particularly dry areas are pro-
gressing quickly. A few fields in
south-central South Dakota have
already reached maturity, but as
they began to harvest the crop,
some producers have learned that
the test weight was very low. One
field produced wheat that weighed
47 lbs. /Bu. As test weights drop
below 60 lbs. /Bu, discounts begin
to mount. The lowest test weight
that wheat can be marketed at
grain elevators is 50 lbs. /Bu., with
discounts in the neighborhood of
$0.70/Bu at that level.
There are several potential rea-
sons for wheat being low in test
weight, including drought, root
and crown rots, viral diseases, fun-
gal or bacterial foliar diseases,
scab, etc. It is difficult to deter-
mine the test weight of a wheat
crop until it is mature and har-
vested, but the presence of a sub-
stantial percentage of shriveled
kernels should raise a red flag.
If wheat is low in test weight,
one strategy may be to open the
sieves on the combine and turn up
the wind in hopes of blowing some
of the lighter, shriveled kernels
out the back. Wheat that is
already harvested and found to be
light might also be cleaned aggres-
sively in an attempt to gain test
weight. If the majority of the ker-
nels are lighter and shriveled, the
potential of gaining much test
weight by is likely to be limited. If
using either of these strategies,
producers would need to compare
the benefit of gaining test weight
against the yield loss due to blow-
ing the light seeds out the back of
the combine or aggressive clean-
The remaining options are to
harvest the wheat to sell as feed
wheat at a significant discount, or
harvest as hay. Unfortunately,
crop insurance may not offer sub-
stantial coverage for wheat that is
low in test weight. The adjustment
for light wheat doesn’t reach sig-
nificant levels until the bushel
weight drops into the low 40 lb.
/Bu range. If producers suspect
they may have wheat that is low in
test weight, they should contact
their crop insurance agent to eval-
uate their options before cutting
for hay or harvesting the crop as
Pesticide container recycling
Dakota Department of Agricul-
ture (SDDA) will again conduct
collections of pesticide containers
in a number of locations across the
state. The program collects and
recycles agricultural, home and
garden pesticide containers. The
planned dates for each location are
listed on igrow.org at:
2013.pdf (all times are local). The
containers collected must be made
from high density polyethylene
(HDPE) embossed with recycling
symbol #2. Containers must be
empty and triple-rinsed to be recy-
cled. Caps and other non-HDPE
parts such as metal handles and
rubber linings cannot be recycled
and can be disposed of as regular
waste. It is recommended to
remove labels from the containers
before recycling

on really nasty stuff for a few days
before turning into pupae and
then adults. The whole process is
apt to take less than two weeks. In
other words, if the eggs from one
female produce a hundred more
females in two weeks, and those
hundred each produce a hundred
more, you soon have a major sur-
plus. That’s about where we’re at
here in mid-July. Only frost or
cooler weather can probably save
This comes from someone who
has recently tried other control
measures. Fly swatters are effec-
tive in the short term, and it is
sort of like a computer game--see
how many bugs you can swat in
five minutes. Wife Corinne and I
were on the deck having a go at it
together a few days ago, and I bet
we killed over fifty flies in ten min-
utes—maybe a hundred. It was
rather fun.
In a search for less time-consum-
ing control measures, I then went
out and bought a fly trap. This is
a dome-shaped hard-plastic con-
traption which has a funnel-type
thing leading up into it from the
bottom. You pour some water and
smelly liquid bait into that funnel
and then turn it right side up. The
flies come to the bait, crawl up into
the dome through the funnel, and
are apparently way too stupid to
find their way back out. Eventual-
ly they drown in the water. This is
all well and good except for the
fact that the bait is so strong that
it attracts flies from quite a dis-
tance. In fact, it attracts way more
extra flies than it traps. If you
position it anywhere close to
where you want to be, you are
worse off than you were before. It
might help if you put it way out
somewhere so the flies go to it
from the area where you are. It
definitely does not work to put it
close to you.
There are poisons, of course, but
I’m not a big fan of insecticides
and such. They make me nervous.
I don’t like being around anything
that kills things that live and
breathe like I do. I’m not even
overly fond of herbicides even
though I’m not a plant. Anything
very toxic might not be good for me
either, or so it seems to me.
As a result, I guess it’s back to
flyswatters. It does give you a
small feeling of power and useful-
ness to be able to swat lots of flies
and hornets and rid the world of
their presence. I’m aware they do
have some purpose in nature
which is fine except that I prefer
them quite a ways over there
doing what they’re supposed to do
and not right next to me.
One good thing about flies is that
they seldom bite except, of course,
when they’re trying to tell you it’s
going to rain. My mother, anyway,
said that flies only bite when it’s
going to rain. There seems to be
some truth to that although I
wouldn’t care to try to prove it. Oh,
yes. Another good thing is that the
life span of adult flies is rather
short—only a week or two.
In the meanwhile, I guess I can
stay indoors more and wait for
frost. I can also sit on the deck
mostly after dark when the flies
are asleep. That’s a good time to be
out anyway since it’s cool and you
can watch the stars. As you can
see, I have no real answer to the
fly problem. If you have a good
one, be sure to let me know. I’m a
bit tired of flies.
There is no shortage of flies at
the moment. They are probably
not in any danger of being added
to the endangered-species list. On
the other hand, they tried to put
prairie dogs on that list a while
ago, and those troublesome
rodents are basically as endan-
gered as flies, so who knows.
Right now, though, sitting on the
deck during daylight hours is not
completely pleasant. Black flying
insects will see you sitting there
and decide to visit in droves. They
will land on any part of your
anatomy but are partial to skin.
You almost feel like they could
carry you away if they got really
well organized.
I am particularly displeased
when I’m trying to sip my coffee on
the deck and have to hold the cup
by its handle with one hand and
protect the rim with the other.
Flies love to land on the lip of your
coffee cup for some odd reason,
and this is not good. You don’t
know where those little feet have
been, but you strongly suspect it
wasn’t anywhere clean. Their
owners have a predilection for
manure and anything rotten so
there you are. I don’t want fly feet
on the rim of my coffee cup. Oddly
enough, you can drink diet pop
without worry since it has
absolutely no food value and is
scorned by the insect population.
They won’t give it a bit of atten-
It is no wonder we sometimes get
inundated with flies since they can
reproduce themselves so quickly. A
female can lay four to six-hundred
eggs within a short time, and they
can hatch within a day. Then the
larvae or maggots munch around

An update on Aspirin
Aspirin is probably the most
venerated and commonly used
medication in the history of phar-
macology. There are references
going back to the Egyptian civi-
lization 2,500 years ago. The
Egyptians obviously did not know
the word aspirin but they did
know that extract of willow bark,
which is a natural source of
aspirin, lowered fevers and eased
pain. In more modern times, the
beneficial affect of aspirin for the
treatment of fever and arthritis
dates at least as far back as 1820.
By 1899 the BAYER pharmaceuti-
cal company in Germany investi-
gated and patented the use of
acetylsalicylic acid and they gave
it the name aspirin. That name
has stuck to the present time
although the formal chemical
name is acetylsalicylic acid.
Initially the drug was used to
treat fever for which Tylenol is
now the drug of choice. It was also
used as an arthritic medication,
but there are now many medica-
tions more effective than aspirin
for most people. As early as 1932,
a doctor in Alabama noted that
patients that he cared for who took
aspirin for other reasons had
fewer heart attacks than those
who did not. He advocated starting
a person on aspirin as a preventive
for heart attacks. At that time, the
heart attack epidemic that we
have now was not as wide spread
and the practice and references
were lost.
Soon after aspirin came on the
market, it was noted that it does
cause gastric irritation in some
individuals. Indeed the protective
coating that the stomach uses to
prevent digesting itself is inhibit-
ed by aspirin and thereby allows
gastric ulcers to occur. Excessive
use of aspirin has caused mortali-
ties from bleeding ulcers. In 1950,
a family physician in California
had directed his patients who were
going to have a tonsillectomy to
chew Aspergum postoperatively to
help the pain problem. He found
that an usual number of patients
had to be hospitalized for severe
bleeding where upon he reversed
this suggestion for tonsillectomy
patients. But some good often
comes from mistakes; he then sug-
gested that the drug be used to
prevent thrombosis in people who
were having heart attacks. Again,
his studies were not taken serious-
ly and the idea was not again
revived until the 1960’s.
By 1971, Dr John Vane working
in England discovered the basic
mechanism of aspirin’s effect. To
put chemical names on the
process, there is an enzyme in
multiple tissues throughout the
body. This enzyme is called
cyclooxygenase and it is activated
to produce an internal chemical
called prostaglandin. Aspirin pre-
vents this reaction and thereby
prevents normal blood clotting.
Now the idea of using aspirin to
prevent heart attacks and strokes
had a scientific basis. Over the
past 40 years, aspirin has been
tested in a variety of clinical situa-
tions but claims of effectiveness
vary substantially.
In the last two months, there
have been two primary research
articles and a major review
regarding the use of aspirin: The
first consideration is whether
aspirin serves a purpose as a “pri-
mary preventive.” By this, we
mean, “Does aspirin prevent the
development of heart attacks and
strokes in people who have no evi-
dence of such to begin with?” The
best answer available at this time
is that daily aspirin use prevents
heart attacks in men even though
they have no evidence of heart
problems at the time the aspirin is
started. Surprisingly, in women
this effect is not seen, but aspirin
in women does prevent the devel-
opment of strokes. Why this differ-
ence between men and women is
In regard to what is called sec-
ondary prevention, the question
asked is, “Does aspirin prevent a
recurrence of heart attack or
stroke if the person has already
had one?” The answer in both sit-
uations is that aspirin started in a
person who has already had a
stroke or heart attack does
decrease the recurrence of same in
the future in both men and
Recently, the use of aspirin in
diabetes has been investigated
further. Surprisingly, it does tend
to lower blood sugars by an
unknown mechanism in diabetics.
Disappointedly, aspirin used to
prevent heart attacks and strokes
in diabetes seems to have little
impact. It appears that the gener-
alized vascular disease that occurs
in diabetics is not significantly
treated by aspirin alone.
The question of the dose of
aspirin to use continues to rage. A
dose of 81 milligrams is the “baby
aspirin.” Many studies have dou-
bled that to 162 milligrams. The
standard five grain aspirin tablet
for adults is 325 milligrams. Most
of the large studies on aspirin use
advocate the 81 milligram or baby
aspirin dose. They cite an
increased risk of bleeding that
may occur with higher doses.
Speaking for myself, I am
impressed by the information
showing that 20 percent of our
general population is not effective-
ly treated by the 81 milligram dose
of aspirin. These are individuals
who metabolize the aspirin very
quickly and it is not around long
enough to have a beneficial effect.
Granting that there may be slight-
ly more bleeding risk using a five
grain aspirin tablet daily, I think
that a little gastric irrigation or
slight bleeding occasionally is a
fair trade for preventing a dreaded
stroke or fatal heart attack. I rec-
ommend using the five grain
aspirin tablet for those that can
tolerate it. For those that have
gastric irritation making it unac-
ceptable, the 81 milligram tablet
would be the appropriate choice.
Additional studies in other
areas have shown that aspirin is
an effective preventive for recur-
rent deep vein thrombosis in the
legs. Many individuals develop
blood clots in their legs and are
placed on Coumadin for six to 12
months. There is a 10-20 percent
likelihood of recurrence of the deep
vein thrombosis if the anticoagula-
tion program with Coumadin is
stopped. Aspirin substantially
reduces that risk at the standard
five grain dose.
Research on Aspirin continues
but I think that it is adequately
demonstrated at this point that it
is an effective treatment for pri-
mary prevention of heart attack in
men and prevention of stroke in
women. It is effective in both men
and women as a preventive for
recurrence of stroke or heart attack.

shown their beef heifer three con-
secutive years, first as a calf, the
second year as a yearling and last-
ly as a cow-calf pair. The 2013
Female Futurity was won by Jake
Dowling and was presented by
Lawrence Roghair.
One of the highlights of 4-H
Achievement Days each year is the
Overall Livestock Showmanship
Contest. The prize is a custom belt
buckle won by a Junior and a Sen-
ior 4-Her who shows a large ani-
mal exhibit and then competes in
the Round Robin Showmanship
Contest. The Round Robin contest
involves showing all of the large
animal species, which include:
horse, swine, sheep, goat, dairy
and beef. The Junior buckle was
sponsored by the Herman Brost
family and won by Austin Olson
who scored the highest of the 10
contestants. Helen Louder pre-
sented Wyatt Walker with the Sen-
ior Showmanship buckle.
The Overall Project High Point
Award goes to one 4-Her, regard-
less of their age, who accumulates
the most ribbon points while par-
ticipating in Jones county 4-H
events for the current 4-H year.
The Jones County 4-H Parents
and Leaders Association sponsors
a $50 certificate to the 4-H Source
Book. This years winner was
Matthew Birkeland who in addi-
tion was the 2013 recipient of the
Workhorse Award which is an
embroidered duffle bag sponsored
by Herman and Jewell Bork and
given to one 4-Her as determined
by attendance at 4-H activities, a
positive attitude, and their repre-
sentation of 4-H.
The Murdo Lions Club and
Murdo Area Chamber of Com-
merce served a delicious meal
which was followed by the 4-H
awards, then a decorated cake and
homemade goodie auction. Bill
Eckert of Eckert Auction kept the
crowd energized until all of the
items were sold and it was time to
head to the Murdo City swimming
pool for the 4-H sponsored pool
