        My name is John Taylor and I am the new UT 4-H, agriculture and natural resources extension agent here in Morgan County.
        Since Aug. 1, I have been working hard to improve our 4-H Youth Development Program. By now I have met with nearly all 4-H clubs in 4th-8th grades throughout the county.

        As we move into the cooler seasons, it’s a good idea to take notice of the grasses that we have in our fields. Some of the grasses that we see in our area that are great for warm season grazing, like our sorghum grasses, can cause some big troubles when they get stressed, as happens when the first big frost hits. Sorghum type grasses, including Johnson grass, will cause a condition called prussic acid poisoning.
