Thursday, March 2, 2023

This week on SUNUP: 

  • With the recent tornadoes and extreme wind events, Mark Johnson, OSU Extension beef cattle breeding specialist, says producers need to be aware of the danger of debris to their herds.
  • Wes Lee, OSU Extension Mesonet agricultural coordinator, discusses the maximum air temperature maps and says plants are waking up earlier than usual. State climatologist Gary McManus says although drought is improving, the situation could change for the better or worse as spring approaches.
  • Ryan Desantis, OSU Extension forestry specialist, has chainsaw safety tips for those who are cleaning up brush and tree damage after the recent storms.
  • Derrell Peel, OSU Extension livestock marketing specialist, says cattle markets are continuing to remain strong overall.
