Cherry, plum, Apple trees

I live in Hayden,CO. What do I need to treat these trees with to minimize insect problems, and what time of year/ bloom ? Apples are very nice big well established trees. Others are 6 footers planted this fall. Also, with the unseasonably warm winter/spring, is there anything that can be sprayed on trees to retard budding until frosting subsides? Thank you

Are there people who will help trim sheep hooves?

I am a new sheep owner and when I got the sheep, their hooves were overgrown. Being new with sheep, I'm unsure exactly what they should look like and so am hesitant to do it myself. I've tried a couple times but always get scared I'm going to cut too much a hurt them. Is there someone a person can hire to do it once and then I'd have a baseline? Do shearers do it?

Different restrictions for grazing and haying?

I'm trying to figure out why some herbicides can be grazed right away, but have a wait period on haying. For example, I am reading that Picloram has no grazing withdrawal, but a 14 day restriction on haying. Unless I'm reading that wrong? Any thoughts on why this would be?

Follow Up Question "Gardener Alert! Beware of Herbicide- Contaminated Compost and Manure"

My understanding from reading the Milestone packaging is that it is illegal for the hay or manure to leave the property that Milestone was used on without being specifically labeled. Is this correct? Is there any attempt to punish those contaminating compost through illegal activity (i.e. pesticide applicators not following the label)?
