North Dakota State University and the North Dakota Department of Agriculture can help connect those who need feed with those who have it. Farmers and ranchers who have feedstuffs such as hay or corn for sale can list it on NDSU’s FeedList website, which is designed to con- nect feed sellers and buyers. Produc- ers also may list pasture they have for rent. The FeedList, at https://www.ag.ndsu.edu/feedlist, shows what each seller has for sale, how the feed is stored (large round bales, small bales, etc.) and the seller’s contact information. Prospec- tive buyers can select what they want to buy and contact the sellers. Using :the FeedList is free of charge. , This site also may be used to do- nate or receive donations. : Anyone who wants to buy feed or has feed to sell or donate can com- plete an online form at the site. Those iwho need entry help can contact their county office of NDSU Extension. ‘ All entries will be deleted auto- matically after 90 days. Buyers and North Dakota State University and the North Dakota Depart- ment of Agriculture are helping connect those who need live- stock feed with those who have it. (NDSU photo) sellers who no longer need the FeedList’s services before that should contact the Feedlist coordina- tor, Elizabeth Cronin, at elizabeth.cronin@ndsu.edu to have the entry removed. North Dakota Agriculture Com- missioner Doug Goehring has reac— tivated the Hay Hotline and interactive map. The Hay Hotline and interactive map list those who need hay, those with hay or feed to sell, those with pasture or hay land to rent, those with Conservation Re- serve Program (CRP) land for graz- ing and haying once it becomes available, and those available to move hay. The map is available at https://www.nd.gov/ndda. Users may click on the icons to retrieve infor- mation about available hay, pasture, hay land and CRP land in their area. To be listed on the map, users should contact the Hay Hotline by calling 701-425-8454 weekdays from 8 am. to 5 pm. Callers may leave a message on evenings and weekends. The service is free of charge. Individuals who contact the hotline are asked to provide their name, contact information and what they need or can provide. Some humor might help gardeners through the rest of the growing season Gardening is not like playing golf or basketball. Gardeners play only one game a year. It’s a game where the opponents Mother Nature, insects and animals try their best to stopus from winning a beautiful landscape and pantry full of vegetables to eat during the win- ter. This has been a difficult year for many of us in the plant world: wors— ening drought conditions throughout the state, early warmth followed by frost and now heat that just won’t stop. > So, in light of all the struggles we face as gardeners, I thought it was time for some humor to help us through the rest of the growing sea- son.

Applying and reap— plying sunscreen, avoiding the out- doors during certain times of the day and drinking plenty of water while outside are just a few of the ways people can safely soak up summer sun. But what about dogs? Should dog owners be equally pro- tective of their four—legged friends before letting them run around in the backyard or fraternize with fel- low canines at the nearest dog park? According to the American Kennel Club, dogs can get sun— burned just like their human coun— terparts. In addition, the AKC notes that sunburn can make dogs more vulnerable to certain types of skin cancer, including squamous cell carcinoma, malignant melanomas and hemangiomas. Sunburn also can exacerbate pre- existing conditions like autoim— mune disorders and dermatitis. Some dogs may be especially vulnerable ‘ While no dog is immune to sun— burn, some are more vulnerable than others. The AKC notes that hairless breeds like the American Hairless Terrier need sun protec- tion whenever they will be outside for extended periods of time. In addition, dogs with white or thin coats and those with light-pig- mented noses and eyelids also are especially vulnerable to sunburn. The AKC also says that dogs with thick coats of hair are not immune to sunburn, as many such dogs shed their coats during especially warm weather, thereby making them more vulnerable to the sun’s ultraviolet rays.

How- ever, dog owners must only apply dog-specific sunscreens to their furry friends. The AKC advises dog owners to avoid applying sun- screens that contain zinc oxide'or para—aminobenzoic acid, or PABA, to their dogs, as these can be toxic when ingested. Ingestion is likely as dogs typi- cally try to lick their skin after sun- screen has been applied, so dog owners must. take this warning very seriously. The AKC also recommends using waterproof sunscreens with a minimum sun protection factor, or SPF, of 30. Don’t just go all in Before applying sunscreen to a WHY SHOULD YOU SHOP LOCALLY? Compared to chain stores, locally owned businesses recycle a much larger share of their revenue back into the local economy, enriching the whole community. dog’s entire body, pick an area of its body to apply a small amount. Then wait a little while to see if the sunscreen causes an allergic reac- tion. If it does, wash the product off with water and do not allow the dog to spend ample time outdoors until you find a product that works and does not cause an allergic re- action. If the dog is not allergic, apply the sunscreen about 20 minutes be- fore going outside, keeping a watchful eye on your pooch to be sure he or she does not lick it off. Apply the product anywhere pig- ment is light, and also make sure to get vulnerable areas like the bridge of the nose, ear tips and the skin around the lips, groin and inner thighs. Reapply after the dog goes swimming, and also every four to six hours whether the doghas gone swimming or not.
