We’ll look over feed tags and forage analysis and then work with some easily accessible computer software programs to calculate a feed diet using typical New York winter feeds for pregnant or lactating goats and sheep. tatiana will have some paper worksheets for those with no access to computers to use to figure out if the diet you are feeding your animals is adequate. She will also provide written copies of some of the diets developed by Dr. Mike Thonney at Cornell for feeding pregnant and lactating does and ewes. Participants can take these diets to local mills to see if they can formulate similar diets.

The Newark Cross Country Booster Club will host its annual Turkey Day Race in Newark on Thursday, November 22 at 9:00 AM. Registration and check-in are at the Alex Eligh Community Center, 303 East Ave in Newark.

The booster club has designed new t-shirts and awards for this year’s race; the first 100 registrants will receive a shirt. The race will again feature electronic timing provided by Yen Timing, something that allows a quicker wrap-up of the race and a faster route to the Thanksgiving table!

Many local businesses and individuals have donated prizes for the post-race raffle, which this year will be opened-up to spectators who wish to purchase tickets as well.

The Newark Turkey Day Race is a major fundraiser for the Newark Cross Country Boosters, providing funding for travel, equipment and team warm-ups. The XC Boosters typically fund a trip to a meet in Virginia each year, allowing the Varsity runners to compete in an early-season meet with different competition than they would normally face. While in Virginia, the team also visits Jamestown and Colonial Williamsburg and other historic sites, led by Head Coach Joe Contario.
“I think it’s very important for our Newark kids to get out and see the world, to get a chance to compete against the best and see the world while they do it,” said Contario.
In 2018, the trip was cancelled due to Hurricane Florence hitting the weekend of the planned trip; this cancellation allowed the booster club to contribute significantly to the purchase of warm-ups for members of both the Varsity and Modified teams, something the teams have wanted for years.
“The team is grateful for our warm-ups. They kept us warm in the late season and we looked great as a team, ”said Lindsay Wells a member of the Modified Cross Country team.
Registration and packet pick-up begin at 8:00AM on race day, registration fee is $20 for students and $25 for non-students for pre-registration, $30 for race-day sign-up. Pre-registration is encouraged online at: https://runsignup.com/Race/NY/Newark/NewarkTurkeyDayRace There is a $2.50 fee for online registration.
