DTR ARIZONA DAIRY:
ARIZONA ALFALFA HAY IS BEING SHIPPED TO CALIFORNIA AS THE STATE BATTLES ANOTHER YEAR OF DROUGHT. ONE DAIRYMAN, BILL KERR OF BUCKEYE, ARIZONA SAYS SOME OF THE FEED THE STATE GROWS IS BEING SHIPPED TO THE STATE BECAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE THE WATER TO IRRIGATE THE FARM GROUND IN STATES LIKE CALIFORNIA.KERR SAYS A SIMILIAR SITUATION HAPPENED YEARS AGO WHEN TEXAS WAS IN A SEVERE DROUGHT. KERR SAYS UNLIKE SOME OTHER MIDWESTERN STATES, ARIZONA CAN PRODUCE UP TO 8 TO 9 CUTTINGS OF ALFALFA A YEAR- AN EXCESS AMOUNT WHICH HELPS SINCE SO MUCH IS BEING SHIPPED AWAY.

THE PHENOMENON OF MARCH MADNESS IS UPON US. BASKETBALL TEAMS AT HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE LEVEL ARE BATTLING IN POST-SEASON. THOSE MANY HOURS OF GRUELING PRACTICES ARE NOW PAYING-OFF WITH EACH VICTORY IN THE WINNERS BRACKET. PRACTICING FREE-THROW- AFTER FREE-THROW DOESN'T ALWAYS TAKE PLACE IN THE GYM. SOMETIMES IT'S AT HOME. AND AS CLIFF NAYLOR SHOWS US AN OLD DAIRY BARN ON THE PLAINS OF NORTH DAKOTA IS JUST THE PLACE TO "MILK" A FEW MORE PRACTICES.
