G95-1239 Managing To Prevent Equine Developmental Orthopedic Diseases, Kathleen P. Anderson Jan 1995

G95-1239 Managing To Prevent Equine Developmental Orthopedic Diseases, Kathleen P. Anderson

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide describes and discusses management techniques to prevent orthopedic disease in horses.

Equine Developmental Orthopedic Disease (DOD) is a significant problem facing today's horse breeders. A serious case of DOD can render a young horse essentially worthless due to crippling lameness. There is continuous debate as to the interplay of nutrition, management, genetics and exercise on the incidence of bone disease in young, growing horses. In the early stages, growing horses may appear unaffected by the disease, but may later develop lameness and eventually chronic arthritis. Recent research has identified many factors which will aid breeders to minimize ...


G95-1262 Feeding The Beef Cow Herd--Part Ii Managing The Feeding Program, Richard J. Rasby, Ivan G. Rush, Don C. Adams Jan 1995

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 ...

Ec95-1873 Cultural Practices That Influence Wheat Diseases, John E. Watkins, Robert N. Klein, Paul C. Hay, Lenis Alton Nelson Jan 1995

Ec95-1873 Cultural Practices That Influence Wheat Diseases, John E. Watkins, Robert N. Klein, Paul C. Hay, Lenis Alton Nelson

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

The health of a wheatcrop is determined well before the crop is planted. It is often the result of subtle factors in the management history of the field, including varieties, seed quality, seedbed, planting date, residue management and post harvest weed control. Wheat health management practices before the crop is planted must limit, as much as possible, the number of production hazards that must be dealt with after planting. Important diseases influenced by cultural practices include crown and root rot, wheat streak mosaic, soil-borne wheat mosaic, barley yellow dwarf, leaf rust, smut diseases, scab, Cephalosporium stripe and tan spot.

G95-1273 Radial Tractor Tires -- Performance That Counts!, Robert Grisso Jan 1995

G95-1273 Radial Tractor Tires -- Performance That Counts!, Robert Grisso

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Radial tractor tires offer advantages over bias-ply tires that usually result in increased productivity and reduced fuel consumption.

The axle power developed by a tractor is distributed four ways: overcoming rolling resistance, wheel slip losses, tire-soil action and useful drawbar work. The most efficient use of tractor power occurs when the drawbar power is maximized and the first three items are minimized.

Radial tractor tires can improve tractive efficiency and extend tire wear. There are benefits and disadvantages of radial tractor tires compared to bias-ply tires. Radial tractor tires should be considered as original equipment on new tractors and as ...
