Types Of Manure Storage, John Harrison, Dallen Smith Apr 2004

Types Of Manure Storage, John Harrison, Dallen Smith

All Current Publications

The objective of this fact sheet is to help producers understand the characteristics of different types of manure storage facilities. Factors that might influence the selection of a particular type of manure storage facility are discussed. Manure storage facilities discussed include solid systems, slurry systems, and liquid (lagoon systems).


Manure Storage, Process Improvement For Animal Feeding Operations, John Harrison, Dallen Smith Apr 2004

Manure Storage, Process Improvement For Animal Feeding Operations, John Harrison, Dallen Smith

All Current Publications

The objective of this fact sheet is to help producers understand the need for manure storage facilities.


Animal Manure Removal Methods For Manure Storage Facilities, John Harrison, Dallen Smith Apr 2004

Animal Manure Removal Methods For Manure Storage Facilities, John Harrison, Dallen Smith

All Current Publications

A well-designed manure storage facility must also be well managed to prevent environmental concerns from developing. Probably the single most important requirement in operating and maintaining a manure storage facility is to ensure that the facility does not overflow or discharge.


Nutrient Concentrations In Manure Storage Facilities, John Harrison, Dallen Smith Apr 2004

Nutrient Concentrations In Manure Storage Facilities, John Harrison, Dallen Smith

All Current Publications

The objective of this fact sheet is to help producers understand the nutrient loss and retention characteristics of different types of manure storage. The concentration of nutrients in manure storage facilities is important for planning land application activities. Nutrient concentration is usually the critical factor in determining the amount of manure to be spread per acre of land. Manure systems similar in type and management may have characteristically similar concentrations of manure nutrients.


Manure Storage Selection, John Harrison, Dallen Smith Apr 2004

Manure Storage Selection, John Harrison, Dallen Smith

All Current Publications

The objective of this fact sheet is to help producers understand the factors that might influence the selection of a particular type of manure storage facility. Manure storage facilities covered include solid systems, slurry systems, and liquid (lagoon systems).


Safety In Manure Storage Facilities, John Harrison, Dallen Smith Apr 2004

Safety In Manure Storage Facilities, John Harrison, Dallen Smith

All Current Publications

As livestock operations become larger and numbers of employees more numerous, safety becomes a critical issue in manure storage.


Lagoon Monitoring And Condition Parameters, John Harrison, Dallen Smith Mar 2004

Lagoon Monitoring And Condition Parameters, John Harrison, Dallen Smith

All Current Publications

Lagoons combine storage and treatment functions and thus are more sensitive to management inputs than are solid or slurry facilities. The establishment and maintenance of desirable microbiological populations in lagoons requires more specific procedures in the way lagoons are loaded and monitored.

Ec04-834 Hedging And Basis Considerations For Fed Cattle Livestock Risk Protection Insurance, Darrell R. Mark Jan 2004

Ec04-834 Hedging And Basis Considerations For Fed Cattle Livestock Risk Protection Insurance, Darrell R. Mark

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Livestock Risk Protection (LRP) Insurance for fed cattle is a price-risk management tool initially offered in June 2003 to fed cattle producers in Nebraska, Iowa, and Illinois. LRP indemnifies against declines in cash fed cattle sales prices, as measured by a regional weekly weighted average cash slaughter steer price.

This 2004 extension circular examines historical LRP basis and demonstrates its use in hedging with LRP.


Ec04-833 Hedging And Basis Considerations For Swine Livestock Risk Protection Insurance, Darrell R. Mark Jan 2004

Ec04-833 Hedging And Basis Considerations For Swine Livestock Risk Protection Insurance, Darrell R. Mark

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Livestock Risk Protection (LRP) Insurance for swine is a price-risk management tool initially offered in July 2002 to Iowa swine producers. It was expanded to Nebraska, Indiana, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Nevada, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming in November 2003.

This 2004 extension circular examines historical LRP basis and demonstrates its use in hedging with LRP.


Ec04-704 Precision Agriculture: Listening To The Story Told By Yield Maps, Viacheslav I. Adamchuk, Achim Dobermann, Jianli Ping Jan 2004

Ec04-704 Precision Agriculture: Listening To The Story Told By Yield Maps, Viacheslav I. Adamchuk, Achim Dobermann, Jianli Ping

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

When discussing current issues in precision agriculture, the terms “yield mapping” or “yield monitoring” often are used to refer to one of the most crucial components of the entire system for site-specific crop management. In fact, yield monitoring equipment was introduced in the early 1990s and is increasingly considered a conventional practice in modern agriculture. The pioneers of precision agriculture already have generated several years of yield history and have examined different ways of interpreting and processing these data. The goal of this publication is to review several common methods of yield data analysis and to discuss potential applications for ...
