  • Oral Health Important To Seniors

    Jodi Berry|Jul 10, 2024

    There are a lot of things we can let slide as we get older but one thing that becomes more important than ever is our oral health. Every time we eat or drink, bacteria and small food particles are left behind on the surface of our teeth and gumline; eventually forming plaque. When plaque builds up for too long without being addressed it can lead to gum disease, tooth decay and a host of other problems. Seniors can be especially susceptible to this because of decreased dexterity while brushing and flossing. This makes it more important than...

  • Montana State's Eastern Ag Research Center Blends High-Tech Analysis With Diverse On-Farm Explorations

    Reagan Cotton|Jul 3, 2024

    BOZEMAN – Eastern Montana may be typecast for its sparse population and rolling landscape, but its vast expanses make it an optimal region for the state’s largest industry.

Serving such a wide area can be a tall order for a facility with less than 200 acres for both dryland and irrigated r...
