It appears that during times of high rainfall and/or very dry conditions, the spores are uncovered and cattle are at risk of infection.”Anthrax is a disease in cattle caused by a bacteria known as Bacillus anthracis. This bacteria has a special survival mechanism called spore formation. This characteristic allows the bacteria to produce very hardy spores with a high survival rate.of anthrax infection are finding dead cattle. Cattle can die without signs of illness for a number of reasons, including lightning strikes, clostridial infections and toxicities, but anthrax always should be considered, according to Stokka.The spores can survive for years under the right conditions. When these spores come into contact with susceptible cattle, they can “hatch” and infect the animals, resulting in disease and death.“If the diagnosis of anthrax is suspected and confirmed by your veterinarian, then vaccination needs to be implemented as quickly as possible,” he says.Often the only initial signsThe commercial vaccine available is a live attenuated (nondisease-causing) spore vaccine. The dose is 1 cc administered subcutaneously in the neck region. All adult cattle and calvesshould be administered the vaccine, and treatment with antibiotics should be withheld because it may interfere with the immune response. However, when faced with an outbreak situation, administering an antibiotic and a vaccine concurrently has been effective, Stokka says. Consult your local veterinarian for a recommendation. “Consider removing all cattle from the pasture where anthrax deaths are suspected because spores present can infect the remaining animals,” Stokka advises.risk to humans, so take care to not disturb the carcass. The recommended method of disposal is to burn the carcass and soil on which the carcass was found after placing them in a trench dug in the immediate area of the death.

As children head back to school, they and their parents have lots to do to be ready for the first days of school. Clothing and supplies may be top priorities, but families also should focus on safety as the first day of school draws close. The following are somekey tips families can keep in mind to ensure a healthy and happy upcoming school year. School bus safety The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that school buses are the safest way for children to travel to and from school. The majority of school bus-related injuries occur while students are boarding and gettingAGRICULTUREoff the bus. Over the last 10 years, the NHTSA says nearly two-thirds of school-age pedestrians who were fatally injured by school buses or other vehicles were hurt after being struck while entering or exiting the bus. While at the bus stop, children must remember to stay at least five large steps away from the road and wait to board until the driver says so.

While on the bus, observe the rules and stay seated at all times. Keep the center aisle clear of backpacks. Walking/biking safety Students may walk or bike to school if the school permits. School tends to begin during the morning rush hour, so students must30 Years Experienceexercise extreme caution when walking or biking to school. Stick to sidewalks whenever possible when walking. Cyclists should follow the rules of the road, including riding in the same direction as traffic. Choose the safest route as a family and practice it before the first day of school, advises the security company ADT. Backpack safety Choose an ergonomically designed backpackto enhance safety and comfort. Backpacks should weigh no more than 5 to 10 percent of the child's body weight, advises the National Safety Council. Rolling backpacks should be avoided since they are a tripping hazard. With a new school year on the horizon, students and their parents can discuss school safety so the year starts off on the right foot.Commercial | Residential• Garage Slabs • Driveways • Footing Walls for New Additions • Straighten/Reinforce Walls (I-Beams) • Tear Down / Haul Out Old Garages • Snow RemovalProfessional Personal Service from Start to Finish Free Estimates Licensed/Bonded/InsuredTODDNICKLAUS CONCRETE CONSTRUCTION 1910 First Avenue South • Fargo, North Dakota 701.237.6620 • Cell: 701.799.6871# Exhibition * Conference ^ Division % Post SeasonPRAIRIE SKY NEWS5ADVERTISE WITH US - CALL DENNIS DING: 701.793.0813VITALSCEO - DENNIS DING GRAPHIC DESIGN - KIM ROBERTS EDITOR - JESSI VANDYKE GM - SHAWN ZAHNIn every issue...PUBLISHED BY EMPIRE MEDIA LLC PO BOX 575 | FARGO, ND 58107 SEPTEMBER 2019 | VOLUME 8 | ISSUE 9 PRAIRIE SKY NEWS A DIVISION OF EMPIRE MEDIA LLCUpcoming Deadlines PRAIRIE SKY NEWS OCTOBER 2019 ISSUE Reserve space by September 18, 2019 Ads camera ready by September 25, 2019 NO EXCEPTIONS!

Buyers may come across certain terms they don't understand. Among the more common terms that firsttime buyers may not fully understand are "short sale" and "foreclosure." According to Realtor. com, short sales and foreclosure auctions aresituations that occur when homeowners fall behind on payments and can no longer afford to live in a home. A short sale happens when a homeowner owes more on the mortgage balance than the market value of the property when the owner needs to sell. The homeowner can ask the mortgage lender to accept a lesser amount than the total mortgage owed -making the homeowner/ seller "short" on paying the lender back. A foreclosure is a legal process that occurs when a borrower cannot make mortgage loan payments for a significant period of time. If the debt is not recouped, lenders will step in and take ownership of the property, putting it up for sale in a foreclosure auction. While these situationscan be troublesome for the homeowner facing financial peril, distressed properties can be advantageous for buyers who oftentimes can buy homes at steep discounts. However, short sales and foreclosures are not without challenges. The real estate experts at Zillow say that foreclosures and short sales involve more layers than traditional transactions.

As a result, buyers may miss out on other opportunities while waiting for short sales tomove along. Foreclosures carry their own hurdles. Buyers may not get a chance to even see a foreclosure property, nor be eligible to have it inspected, as foreclosed homes are typically sold "as-is" and at auction. The real estate agency Re/Max says buy-30Members of the F-M Association of Realtors®3522 HIDDEN COURT WEST FARGO, ND 58078HOMEing a foreclosure typically is faster than buying a short sale, and an investor can buy a foreclosed home for below market value. But foreclosures cannot be contingent on the sale of another home, so a buyer must have funds in place and be ready to move quickly. Short sales are often initiated by homeowners looking to avoid foreclosure. As a result, short sale properties may be in decent condition. This may not bethe case with a foreclosure. The American Society of Home Inspectors says foreclosed homes may have been neglected by having utilities turned off and no maintenance done on the home. Other homes may have been purposefully vandalized by the former owner or by squatters. Short sales and foreclosure properties are options for buyers who want to get the best price possible on a home and are willing to take some risks in their pursuits.MAKE YOUR HOME STAND OUTOne way to improve curb appeal and set a property apart from others is to add decorative effects to walkways, patios and driveways. Although many homeowners turn to materials such as pavers, flagstone or brick for these purposes, a versatile and often cost-effective idea is to rely on stamped concrete. Stamped concrete, often called textured or imprinted concrete, is textured, patterned or embossed to mimic the look of other materials, notably brick, slate
