Keeping udders clean and calves on dry ground greatly reduces the incidence of scours. ( • Manure is more evenly distributed on the pasture. The value of animal manures and their distribution over a farm cannot be overlooked. Over a year, a 1,100 pound cow will produce over 13 tons of manure. The nutrient analysis of cow manure per ton is 12-5-13. * If a cow is fed for 4.5 months during the winter, she will produce approximately 5 tons of manure. The analysis of 5 tons of manure would be 60- 25-65. Although some of the nitrogen will be lost as ammonia, all of the phosphorus .and potassium will be plant available. If this analysis was purchased at today's commercial prices, the manure from one cow is worth well over $75.00. Getting the manure evenly distributed on a farm will greatly improve productivity during the 40,000 SF Warehouse near Natural Bridge.

That is, they live more than one hour's travel time from the person receiving their help (National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP, 2004). Long-distance caregivers tend to be college- educated, between the ages of 35 and 64, and in excellent health. Most consider themselves secondary care providers who support a primary caregiver. Long-distance care may begin slowly with simple tasks a family meeting to discuss the care needed and identify the:type of help and resources each per- son is willing to provide.

However, the average caregiver still travels over 700 miles a trip each month to nowledge when their circum- stances change so responsibili- ties can be shifted and shared. Maintain a Care-giving Notebook: The fourth step to effective care-giving is to create and maintain a earegiyer note- book.
