G94-1230 The Foaling Mare, Kathleen P. Anderson Jan 1994

G94-1230 The Foaling Mare, Kathleen P. Anderson

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide outlines the foaling process and appropriate actions to take during both normal and abnormal foaling.

The ultimate goal of any breeding operation should be both maximal foaling and a high survival rate of foals. Most mares will have a normal parturition if left unattended, however, the value of broodmares and their progeny can make leaving parturition to nature an expensive gamble. As the value of mares and foals rise, it becomes more desirable to have someone present during foaling, allowing for immediate assistance to both mare and foal if needed.

Being present when a mare foals can be ...

Nf94-206 Common Ground: The Case Of Seasonally Inundated Cropland, William Miller

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Increasing waterfowl migration habitat has been a goal of many groups and individuals for decades. Individuals have provided money for habitat by supporting private organizations such as Ducks Unlimited, and through the purchase of hunting licenses, duck stamps, and habitat stamps. All these activities have helped, but funds have been limited so it has not been possible to provide enough wetland space for the migrating waterfowl.

This NebFact discusses cost effective ways to provide more waterfowl migration habitat on seasonally inundated crops and a seasonal strategy that could provide habitat for geese and ducks during the spring and fall migration ...

Ec94-1766 Windbreaks For Livestock Operations, James R. Brandle, Vernon Quam, Ladon Johnson, Bruce Wight Jan 1994

Ec94-1766 Windbreaks For Livestock Operations, James R. Brandle, Vernon Quam, Ladon Johnson, Bruce Wight

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Windbreaks play an important role in the protection of livestock, particularly in young animals and in areas with cold northerly winds during the winter and early spring. Properly placed windbreaks can provide benefits to feedlots, livestock pastures, and calving areas. Reducing wind speed in winter lowers animal stress, improves animal health, and increases feeding efficiency. Livestock windbreaks provide significant amounts of wildlife habitat, protect the working environment in and around the livestock area, and screen noise and odors associated with livestock operations.

Specific needs of animals dictate that special attention be given to access, snow storage, and drainage when planning ...

G94-1196 Vegetables And Herbs As Ornamentals (Revised November 1996), Susan D. Schoneweis Jan 1994

G94-1196 Vegetables And Herbs As Ornamentals (Revised November 1996), Susan D. Schoneweis

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide discusses the use of vegetables as ornamental plants.

Many vegetables have ornamental, as well as food value. In fact, when tomatoes were first introduced to Europe, they were believed to be poisonous and were used only as ornamentals. Using vegetables as ornamentals is not just for those without space for a traditional vegetable garden. Incorporating vegetables into the landscape and using them as decorative container plants for porches and patios can make vegetable gardening more fun.

Rodent-proof materials should be installed to prevent access to buildings along these routes. Additional methods to consider in an integrated pest management (IPM) program include sanitation, toxicants, and trapping.

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This publication discusses structural characteristics to consider when selecting carpet, including fiber and yarn construction.

The Fibers

Both natural and manufactured fibers are used in carpeting. Naturals include wool and silk. Cotton tends to crush and soil easily so it is not used for carpeting. Manufactured fibers used in carpeting include nylon, polypropylene/olefin, and polyester.

As with all commodities, carpet fiber use changes. Times, availability and cost have an impact on the market. Ninety-nine percent of today's carpet fibers are manufactured. About 68 percent of the carpet market is nylon, 22 percent polypropylene/olefin, over 9 percent polyester ...

Full benefits will begin later for Americans born after 1959 when they reach age 67 in 2027. For most occupations, there is no mandatory age at which people have to quit working ...

G94-1185 Fertilizer And Pesticide Containment Guidelines, Larry D. Schulze, Gary Buttermore

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide summarizes Nebraska regulations on the proper storage of bulk liquid pesticides and fertilizers.

Significant quantities of agricultural chemicals -- both fertilizers and pesticides -- are used annually in Nebraska. Bulk supplies of these chemicals are stored for varying lengths of time by individual producers, chemical dealers, and custom applicators. Spills or potential leakage from storage tanks for liquid fertilizers and pesticides pose a major threat to the integrity of Nebraska's ground and surface water resources. Nebraska has a vital interest in protecting these resources and has made provisions to do so under the Nebraska Environmental Protection Act.
