Extension agents circulating erroneous hemp information

UW extension agents are circulating bad info on hemp, because they have no hemp knowledge themselves. I would be absolutely delighted to talk to your "hemp expert", because the actions of the UW Extension office are harming my business and I'm considering a Cease and Desist.

Pasture Fungus I.D. & Treatment

I have a black fungus in my lawn/pasture that I need to have identified and given non chemical, preferable element treatment options. I hope the photos can help identify the problem.I have horses grazing on the area in the evenings along with pet dogs so an elemental treatment program is a must rather than chemicals. I live north of Etna.

Create Buffalo Grass Plugs

I'm in Cheyenne, and my south-side lawn gets full sun all summer, and the current grass is ill-equipped to survive. I'm thinking about putting in buffalo grass. The ease of using plugs appeals to me, but it's pricey. Seed is cheaper, but it would require me to till my existing space. My question is this: can I buy seed and some trays and create my own plugs? If so, do you have any advice on doing this? How long before the plugs may be planted? I assume I'd need to plant about an inch down, and it would be best to keep the trays outside to avoid shock when they are planted. I appreciate any guidance you can offer.

bobcats

We have purchased a bobcat from Montana. Now I have been researching and found the only way to own a bobcat in Wy. is when it is for educational reasons. We are in the process of building an outside place for it with a large sized shed and 6 ft. fencing. It will be an indoor cat. What can we do to get a license for this cat and make it legal to own it. We have already purchased and the kitten will be ready for pick up at the end of this month or the first week of August. It is coming Montana. I also need to know the law about crossing the state line with this cat. Please answer soon, we realize we are making at least a 25 year commitment with this cat and know it eats about pound of meat a day and all its dietary needs. Thank you. and our phone number is 347-3124

And d o you have any ideas on where I could purchase a large quantity of weevil weapons.

Best water to COOK with?

I use well water (east of Cheyenne) to cook with. My "Joy of Cooking" says soft water is best for most cooking processes, although very soft water will make yeast doughs soggy and sticky. Hard water & some soft waters affect flavor..may toughen legumes and fruits and shrivel pickles..they alter the color of some veggies and turn white veggies yellow...and on it goes. What's a cook to do? I am having trouble making yeast breads. What water would you suggest I purchase to help improve my breads??

Lilac curling leaf

Is the typical leaf curling from wind drift due to 2-4-D also possible if too much nitrogen based fertilizer is used on lilacs? I'm worried that it might have "burned" the lilac. But my father has assured me that the spray he used did not contain 24-D although I am skeptical.
