Integrating Environmental Awareness And Sustainability Issues In A Beginning Agronomy Course, Richard E. Mullen, Robert B. Lindemeyer, David L. Graf Jan 1995

Integrating Environmental Awareness And Sustainability Issues In A Beginning Agronomy Course, Richard E. Mullen, Robert B. Lindemeyer, David L. Graf

Leopold Center Completed Grant Reports

Agriculture in the United States in a science- based, highly technical field that has signifi­ cant impact on society and the larger ecosys­ tem, both nationally and internationally. As new technologies and challenges continually emerge, educational and research efforts in agriculture have been and will continue to be key to the success of agronomic systems. At the same time, human labor in U.S. agriculture has decreased rapidly; less than 2% of the population is directly involved in agricultural production. Rapid technological change and declining farm populations suggest that we are becoming a nation largely illiterate in agricul­ tural and ...


G95-1237 Feeding And Care Of Orphaned Foals, Kathleen P. Anderson Jan 1995

G95-1237 Feeding And Care Of Orphaned Foals, Kathleen P. Anderson

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This publication stresses the importance of care and feeding when foals are orphaned.

Feeding and raising orphaned foals can be an extreme challenge particularly if the foal was orphaned at birth. Losing a mare is never expected and being left with a motherless orphan can turn into an unexpected nightmare. Intensive management will optimize the foal's survival chances.


Ec95-272 Nutrition Management Of Pregnant And Lactating Mares, Kathleen P. Anderson Jan 1995

Ec95-272 Nutrition Management Of Pregnant And Lactating Mares, Kathleen P. Anderson

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Serious horse producers are concerned about their mares' reproductive performance and ability to mother strong, healthy foals. Economic survival often hinges on mares foaling early in the year, rebreeding quickly and nursing a growing foal that develops soundly. While achieving these goals in a herd of brood mares is dependent upon many factors, nutritional well-being is one important part of an effective brood mare operation.

Brood mares have specific nutritional requirments that differ from other classes of horses. There are differences both in the amount of feed mares need and in the nutrient concentration needed in taht feed. Therefore, the ...

G95-1236 Developing Beef Quality Assurance, Dicky D. Griffin, Louis Perino, Don Hudson

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This Neb-Guide gives guidelines for developing a feedlot beef quality assurance program.

The displacement of people from agriculture into other areas of employment has broken the relationship between most consumers and producers. The consumer's lack of knowledge about agricultural production coupled with concern for misuse of technological advances in agriculture has created great concern for the safety of their food supply. Consumers are worried that their food will be contaminated by antibiotics, hormones, and agricultural chemicals. Recently, bacterial contamination of beef has been added to their fears. These concerns, combined with diet and health concerns for eating red meat ...

G95-1262 Feeding The Beef Cow Herd--Part Ii Managing The Feeding Program, Richard J. Rasby, Ivan G. Rush, Don C. Adams

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Feed costs are the cow/calf producer's greatest expense in producing a weaned calf. To remain competitive, cow/calf operators must use economical feeding programs. It is important to match the available feed resources with the nutrient requirements of the first-calf-heifer and cow. Both over- and underfeeding the cow herd can lead to high production costs.

Nutrient requirements for heifers calving as 2-year-olds and cows calving as 3-year-olds and older are shown in Table I. Beef cows are seldom fed complete rations where ingredients are weighed daily. Generally, most of a cow's ration is forages such as: 1 ...


Rp489 Impacting Private Sector Policy For Families, Georgia L. Stevens Jan 1995

Rp489 Impacting Private Sector Policy For Families, Georgia L. Stevens

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Who is caring for families(*) these days? Historically, we've had the notion that families needed to be self-sufficient. But, today, dramatic changes in family structure and family member's employment have shifted this thinking. As family policy educator and researcher Shirley Zimmerman (personal communication, April 26, 1993) states,

"increasingly it is recognized that the well-being of families is dependent on the functioning of other societal institutions, such as government and business. For this reason, government is taking an expanding interest in the role of the private sector, namely business and industry, for ensuring the health and economic security of ...
