"Dirty Jobs" to Air 1 Hour Special on KER Products Nov. 30th!

Friday, November 26, 2010

"Dirty Jobs" Host; Mike Rowe

“Dirty Jobs” profiles the unsung American laborers who make their living in the most unthinkable—yet vital—ways. Host Mike Rowe introduces viewers to a hardworking group of men and women who overcome fear, danger and sometimes stench to accomplish their daily tasks.  While “Dirty Jobs” was initially interested in KER’s research (Advanced Equine Nutrition) because of feeding trials that involve the collection of fresh urine and feces from horses, the production staff soon realized that the science behind KER’s work was just as interesting as the dirty jobs they hoped to find there.  Set a reminder to watch November 30th!  Click Here!

Lexington Herald-Leader Visits DeGraff Stables in Midway

"The horse industry is vital to Central Kentucky, whether it's Warmbloods, Thoroughbreds, trotters, Morgans," Ted Kuster, long-time Thoroughbred Breeder, said. "We need to keep the industry going, and this is one way to help."  The Lexington Herald-Leader visited DeGraff, a Quarter Horse and Paint Breeder in Midway, who along with a host of people who feel the same way are working within the new group. The Kentucky Equine Networking Association, a joint venture with the Kentucky Horse Council and the UK Equine Initiative program, goals are to provide networking and resources to the many horse businesses around Kentucky that focus on different breeds and disciplines.  Click Here!
