Nf04-606 Deep Fat Frying Turkeys, Carol J. Plate Jan 2004

Nf04-606 Deep Fat Frying Turkeys, Carol J. Plate

Deep fat frying results in a juicy product because the hot fat seals the outside and the skin becomes crisp.

This NebFact talks about the equipment, ingredients, preparation, frying, and safety of deep fat frying turkeys and other poultry.

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide defines nutritional needs and healthy eating patterns for children ages 2 to 5.

Parents and caregivers need to help promote a healthy pattern of eating rather than using ...

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

In July 1996, the U.S.D.A. published the Final Rule on Pathogen Reduction for meat and poultry processing facilities. Its goal is to reduce the occurrence of food-borne pathogens in meat and poultry products. The rule requires carcass sampling for "generic" E. coli in meat and poultry slaughter operations. The U.S.D.A. has developed guidelines for acceptable, marginal and unacceptable amounts of E. coli to be used by the processor to determine if their process is controlling microbial hazards. If E. coli testing indicates that the process is not in control of the microbial hazards, then ...


G98-1344 Basics Of Feeding Horses: Feeding Management, Kathleen P. Anderson Jan 1998

G98-1344 Basics Of Feeding Horses: Feeding Management, Kathleen P. Anderson

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide outlines appropriate practices for feeding horses.

Often, nutritional management of the equine is a misunderstood topic. Successful nutritional management depends upon combining information on the nutrient requirements of different horses and their eating behaviors with the knowledge of how to best meet those requirements. Proper nutritional management is extremely critical in the horse due to the unique arrangement and anatomy of its digestive tract. Often, it is the feeding method, not feed composition, which leads to digestive disorders in horses. This NebGuide includes information on the basic, daily feeding management for horses.
