G89-940 Financial Planning Form: Net Worth Statement, Kathleen Prochaska-Cue

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide gives step-by-step instructions for filling out the included net worth statement, sometimes called a balance sheet.

A net worth statement, or balance sheet, is like a snapshot that shows a financial situation at a certain point in time. In simple terms, the net worth sheet shows how much money would be left if everything owned was converted into cash and used to pay off all debts.

The net worth statement includes what is owned (assets) on the left side of the sheet, what is owed to creditors (liabilities) on the right side of the sheet, and the net ...


G89-949 Safety During Snow Removal, Robert Grisso, Rollin Schnieder Jan 1989

G89-949 Safety During Snow Removal, Robert Grisso, Rollin Schnieder

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Safe tips for snow removal using snow shovels, snowblowers and powered blades or sweepers are covered in this NebGuide.

As the temperature drops and the grounds maintenance equipment is stored for the winter, position the snow removal equipment for quick access, and start thinking about snow removal safety.

About half the accidents involving snow removal equipment happen to first-time users or those using the equipment for the first time each winter.

Snow removal equipment falls in one of three groups: 1) the snow shovel, 2) the snow thrower or blower, and 3) the powered blade or sweeper.


G89-941 Financial Planning Form: Income Statement, Kathleen Prochaska-Cue Jan 1989

G89-941 Financial Planning Form: Income Statement, Kathleen Prochaska-Cue

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide provides step-by-step directions for completing the included income statement.

What Is an Income Statement?

An income statement shows income and expenses over a period of time, usually a year. Like a motion picture, it also can show the movement of income expenses between net worth statements.

This income statement includes five categories of income (salaries, wages, bonuses; investment income; gifts; borrowed money; and other income), and three categories of expenses (taxes; fixed obligations and financing expense; and living expenses). A space to calculate net income (the amount left after all expenses) concludes this form.

The Russian wheat aphid is a serious insect threat to small grains. Its description, damage and control are discussed here.

The Russian wheat aphid (RWA) is a serious insect threat to wheat and other small grains. Growers should examine small grain fields regularly for this pest throughout the fall. In the spring, weekly examinations are needed from the time wheat resumes growth through the late heading stages.

Farmers are encouraged to collect samples of unknown aphids on small grains and have them identified by the Cooperative Extension Service. Proper identification of the aphid is critical in determining the need for ...


G89-926 Swine Reproductive Problems: Infectious Causes, Alex Hogg, Donald G. Levis Jan 1989

G89-926 Swine Reproductive Problems: Infectious Causes, Alex Hogg, Donald G. Levis

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide describes causes, clinical signs, control, prevention and treatment of swine reproductive problems due to infectious diseases. The reproductive potential for the ideal sow has been calculated as 31.2 pigs weaned per year. The United States average is 14 pigs per sow per year--less than one-half the reproductive potential of the ideal sow. A major part of this low reproductive efficiency is due to either infectious or non-infectious causes. The infectious causes of swine reproductive problems are addressed here.


Ec89-1871 Wheat Streak Mosaic Disease, John E. Watkins, Roy C. French, John B. Campbell, Eric D. Kerr, Robert N. Klein Jan 1989

Ec89-1871 Wheat Streak Mosaic Disease, John E. Watkins, Roy C. French, John B. Campbell, Eric D. Kerr, Robert N. Klein

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Wheat streak mosaic was first recognized in Nebraska in the early 1920's as "yellow mosaic." This virus disease has the potential to cause serious crop losses in winter and spring wheats and in spring oats. It is most prevalent in the central and northern Great Plains. In Nebraska wheat streak mosaic commonly occurs in the west central and Panhandle, but also occurs in south central and eastern Nebraska. During some years the spring oat crop in northeast Nebraska is devastated by the combination of wheat streak mosaic and barley yellow dwarf diseases occurring in the same field.

G89-950 Horse Insect Control Guide, John B. Campbell

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Insects that bother horses, and ways to treat them, are covered here.

People keep horses in Nebraska for a number of different reasons. Some are for 4-H projects and urban users (recreational), ranch and farm (work), breeding farms, and racing.

Some of the insect pests of horses are also pests of other livestock species. Other insects are specific to horses, but may be pests only on farm and ranch horses.

The best methods of pest control vary depending upon the type of horse production.


G89-932 Minimum Center Pivot Design Capacities In Nebraska, William L. Kranz, Derrel L. Martin, Greg Lackas Jan 1989

G89-932 Minimum Center Pivot Design Capacities In Nebraska, William L. Kranz, Derrel L. Martin, Greg Lackas

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Factors to consider in choosing an appropriate center pivot design are covered here. Irrigators investing in a center pivot irrigation system need to consider this important question: How much supplemental water is required by the crop? Irrigation system capacity needed to meet crop requirements is defined in units of gallons per minute (GPM) or gallons per minute per acre (GPM/AC). If the system capacity is too low, crop stress occurs during some portion of the growing season. If the capacity is too high, surface runoff may result, or capital investment for the pumping plant and center pivot may be ...


G89-915 Testing Livestock Feeds For Beef Cattle, Dairy Cattle, Sheep And Horses (Revised April 1997), Rick Grant, Bruce Anderson, Richard J. Rasby, Terry L. Mader Jan 1989

G89-915 Testing Livestock Feeds For Beef Cattle, Dairy Cattle, Sheep And Horses (Revised April 1997), Rick Grant, Bruce Anderson, Richard J. Rasby, Terry L. Mader

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide provides tips on how to determine feeds you should analyze and nutrients to measure. It tells how to interpret the results of feed analysis.

Why Test Feeds?

Nutrient concentration can vary considerably in feeds, especially forages. Protein in alfalfa hay can range from 10 to 25 percent or more of the dry matter; grass hay will contain between four and 18 percent protein.

Use feed tests to target specific feeds to different livestock. Feed high quality forage to the most productive livestock or when nutrient needs are highest. Feed lower quality forage to animals with lower nutrient needs.


G89-907 Drinking Water: Testing For Quality (Revised April 2005), Sharon Skipton, Bruce I. Dvorak, Wayne Woldt Jan 1989

G89-907 Drinking Water: Testing For Quality (Revised April 2005), Sharon Skipton, Bruce I. Dvorak, Wayne Woldt

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Why test water quality? Concern about water quality often leads consumers to ask questions such as "What is in my water?" or "Is my drinking water safe?" All water from natural sources contains dissolved substances. These substances are often called contaminants, especially when the amounts present are at possibly harmful or problematic levels. The substances in water can result from either natural processes or human activities. At low concentrations, many do not cause known harmful effects and may be beneficial. Research shows some substances may be harmful only when present at high enough concentrations. The only way to know if ...

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Tips for successful no-till weed control, weed control principles for no-till row crop production, and no-till row crops planted into legume or small grain residues are covered here. Soil erosion by wind and water is a strong societal concern in our state and nation. Current estimates are that more than 100 million tons of topsoil are eroded annually in Nebraska, with 75 percent of that coming from row crop areas. Nebraska farmers have been implementing changes in their crop production practices to reduce soil erosion.

G89-933 Supplemental Pastures For Sheep, Ted Doane, Bruce Anderson

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Efficient and effective ways to pasture sheep are covered here.

Feed costs account for approximately 80 percent of all costs in many dry lot feeding programs for sheep. These costs can be reduced to 50 percent in the total cost with effective pasture programs.

Sheep can be efficient at converting forage into meat and wool. The following pasture alternatives and combinations allow the development of a pasture program where sheep can be on pasture for approximately 10 months of the year, if weather permits.


G89-905 Weed Control On Crp Acres (Revised July 1997), Robert N. Klein, Gail A. Wicks, John E. Watkins, Jerry D. Volesky Jan 1989

G89-905 Weed Control On Crp Acres (Revised July 1997), Robert N. Klein, Gail A. Wicks, John E. Watkins, Jerry D. Volesky

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Establishing perennial grasses on former cropland presents a challenge. Weed control can be accomplished with herbicides, tillage, burning, mowing, and crop competition. The key to weed control is timeliness. Weeds should be controlled on CRP acres to reduce the risk of seeding failure and eliminate possible reseeding costs. Soil moisture must be available for seed germination, seedling emergence, and establishment to be successful in getting stands of grasses and/or legumes. Weeds can quickly and thoroughly consume soil water throughout the upper soil profile and must be controlled to allow grass and legume seedlings to germinate and emerge. In addition ...
