Grasshopper management

We live in the southern tip of Titus County. For the past 3 years we have had a phenomenal bloom of grasshoppers on our small farm (17 acres). They have wiped out our garden during late July and August and they are so abundant in our pasture that I cannot help but believe that they are damaging them. What do you suggest we can do to mitigate the grasshopper population for 2014?

cover crops for soil managment

I want to improve the soil quality and health on 70 acres of pasture land in Titus County.
I have spent some time lately viewing some u-tube presentations by the University of Missouri talking about cover crops. Some of the presenters were: Ray Archuleta, Jill Clapperton, Rick Henley, Howard Buffett, Rob Meyers, and Gabe Brown.
I want to start improving my soil quality, raise a cash crop, or livestock and perhaps even harvest seeds for cover crops as a business venture.
What steps should I begin toward these goals?
Sincerely
Fletcher Smith

Black srems

I purchased a Tropicana rose bush from Home Depot and the branches are turning black. It looked healthy at the time of purchase with new sprouts and leaves starting to appear. I kept it in its plastic bag and placed it where it would be getting the evening sun for about two weeks until I could get it planted. (We were getting alot of rain during the two week period). Well I planted it and one stem looks to be healthy and I've noticed new sprouts at the ball. These branches are covered in wax. What do I need to do?

Where can I purchase dung beetles?

I recently purchased my first few cattle, and I am reading about controlling flies by distributing the cows' manure. I see that dung beetles are good at doing that, but we don't seem to have any in this area. Can I buy dung beetles, and what kind should I buy?
