Milk Coagulation Test

Hi, what is the reason for coagulating the milk produced by my cows? I and the factory that buy my produced milk test the milk with 68 and 72 percent ethanol and unfortunately almost always it coagulates. Sometimes it is so intense that coagulation occurs with the milk that I directly milked from the cow's udder. And sometimes this coagulation occurs so severely that the sample divided to 3 or 4 large pieces. Please send me your guidance and I'm very thankful.

Gumming on stone fruit trees

Last year this appeared in our home orchard on the cherry trees, and is now affecting peach/nectarines as well. Only the plums look unaffected. The trees are fairly young, 3-4 years, so still pruning quite a bit. We live 10 miles east of Sutherlin at 800 feet and trees are on a northeast downslope. We sliced off what we could, disinfecting the knife in between cuts, and sprayed today with a copper fungicide. What else can we do to save them? Thanks!

Encourage Tree Roots to Grow Down

Interested in creating a wind break in an established trailer park (Buffalo). Can you recommend the best way to encourage roots to grow down, to minimize the chance of water/waste pipe and leech field damage? Easements are between 20' and 30'. I was told to use 6' of 1" EMT conduit or steel pipe, hammered deep along side each tree. And water each tree, via the pipe, each day, for the first couple years. Thank you for any assistance you can give.

Austrian pine turning brown at the top

I have seen several dead Austrian pine trees in our neighborhood (Highlands ranch), these seem to be very young trees.

We have a couple of Austrian pines in our back yard that were planted 5 years ago. One now appears to be turning brown at the top.

Is the tree sick? What can I do to stop it from dying?

using irrigation water for 1/4 acre vegatable garden

i am planning a 1/4 acre vegetable garden, with a variety of vegetables. i am going to use the irrigation water i have for this. planning on flood irrigating once a week. however i am unsure how to use this watering technique for seedlings, as well as seed germination. i will be starting a great deal of my plants indoors or in a green house. however some varieties i will be planting directly in the ground - string beans, beets, carrots, broccoli. i need help in establishing a way to use my flood irrigation to get those particular seeds to germintate. is this possible? or will i need to set up some type of drip system, or flood irrigate more often? thank you so much!!

Monterey Oak Tree

Good morning, We live in a new housing development in Cedar Park. Our home is 1-1/2 years old. The developer planted two very nice Monterey Oaks in the front yard. Once we moved in, we watered, watered and mulched the trees. They were flourishing. This past summer, one of the trees was attacked by a persistent Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker! We wrapped the tree, hung Christmas ornaments on the limbs, etc. Attached is a picture of the tree. Do you think it can be saved? Thanks so much,
