This bacteria-blocking activity makes cranberries effec- tive for helping to prevent UTIs and other bacterial related conditions, poten- tially including gum dis- ease and stomach ulcers. Note that cranberry prod- ucts are known as a pre- ventative measure and not a cure for UTIs. Unlike other fruits, cran- berries are usually consid- ered too tart to eat alone and are combined with other ingredients to make them palatable. Most cran- berry juices have sweeten- ers added and dried cran- berries are sweetened prior to drying. Fresh whole cranberries are available in markets through December. They will keep in the refrig- erator for about a month. Freezing the berries will make them last all year long. Sort out any bruised berries and store in an airtight freezer container. These berries do not need to be thawed, but should be washed just before use. They will maintain their quality for 9-12 months. Sweetened dried cran- berries will keep for up to 12 months in a cool dry place. Use whole berries to chop and put in salads, muffins, pancakes and cranberry sauce or relish. Put dried berries in salads, eat as snacks, or use like you would use raisins. Educational programs of the Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service serve all people regardless of race, color, age, sex, reli- gion, disability or national origin. Use manure to help reduce fertilizer bills With the high costs of fertilizer, you may want to consider animal manure from your own farm or one nearby to provide nu- trients to your crops and reduce your fertilizer bill at the same time. With the growth in the Kentucky poultry industry in in recent years, many areas of the state have ac- cess to poultry litter. Us- ing animal waste not only adds nutrients to the soil but also helps build up organic materials and can increase crop yields. To correctly apply ani- mal waste to the land re- quires you to know the manure's nutrient content, best application times and methods, availability of nutrients to crops and how to balance crop nutrient needs using manures, fer- tilizers and other nutrient sources. The first step is to take a soil test so you'll know what nutrients the crop field needs. Next, you need to have the manure tested for its nutrient con- tent. Nutrient content of manure varies depend- ing on the type of animal, type and amount of bed- ding used, manure's mois- ture content and time and method of storage. It is important to note that some manure nu- trients are not as read- ily available to crops as commercial fertilizer's nutrients are, especially nitrogen. Its availability depends on the crop be- ing grown, type of manure used and when and how the manure is applied. A general rule of thumb is half of the nitrogen in the poultry litter will be avail- able to the crop. Growing crops have the greatest ability to take up nitrogen, so manures ap- plied during crop growth will have the least risk of nitrogen loss. The availability of phos- phate from manure in the first year's crop after application is somewhat less than with commercial fertilizers while potash in manure is comparable in availability. The Cooperative Exten- sion Service can help pro- ducers navigate through the ins and outs of using manure as fertilizer. Soil and manure testing are both available through the Bath County Extension Office. Several publica- tions are also available to assist producers. Exten- sion publication, "Using Animal Manures as Nutri- ent Sources" (AGR-146) and a computer spread- sheet (http://soils.rs.uky. edu/manureprogram. htm) are available to help determine application rates and fertilizer credits.

Heading into days, cranberries are be- ginning to find their way into our pantries and freez- ers year round. Cranber- ries are high in fiber and vi- tamin C and contain just 25 calories per 1/2 cup of fresh berries. They are also low in sodium and are a source of Vitamins A and B, calci- um, phosphorus and iron. Packed full of anfioxidants and other natural com- pounds, cranberries pro- mote health and wellness. For many years, health professionals have recom- mended cranberries for prevention of urinary tract infections (UTIs). It was long thought that this was due to the acidity of the cranberries themselves and its impact on the acid- ity of the urine that caused the benefit. Researchers now know differently. Ac- cording to the. Cranberry Institute, cranberries have a bacterial blocking activity due to their flavonoid con- tent that actually prevents the adhesion of infection- They are a program on the rise, and I think they will eventually do well in Conference USA."
