The Relationship Between Physical Activity And Flexibility, Tanya Marie Schramm Oct 1998

The Relationship Between Physical Activity And Flexibility, Tanya Marie Schramm

Student Work

The purpose of this study was to determine if a relationship existed between flexibility and physical activity levels. Subjects included 128 male (n=64) and female (n=64) volunteers, 19 to 55 years of age. All subjects completed a physical activity questionnaire (which differentiated between work, sport, leisure and total physical activity) and a series of five flexibility tests. Four of the five flexibility tests were completed with the use of a goniometer which measured shoulder flexion, hip flexion, knee flexion and ankle dorsiflexion. The sit and reach test was used to assess hamstring­ lumbar flexibility. After analyzing the data ...

Rural Industry Scholarship In Agriculture : Final Report Of The Grains Research & Development Corporation For The Grain Research Committee Of Wa, John Allan

Research Reports

In 1986 the Western Australian Government established an undergraduate scholarship in agricultural science. The scholarship was introduced to attract high calibre students into agricultural science as an alternative to highly rewarded professions such as medicine, law and commerce. The State Wheat Industry Research Committee and Barley Industry Research Committee subsequently provided funding to support the scholarship. In 1992 the Grains Research and Development Corporation agreed to ongoing funding on behalf of the Grains Industry.

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

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

Children Grow at Their Own Rate

Children move though growth spurts throughout childhood. Usually, a child will grow about 2 1/2 inches and gain about four or five pounds each year between the ages of 2 and 5. By 15 months old, most children have developed enough fine motor skills to feed themselves without help, if allowed to do so. Appetites vary with young children as well as adults. Parents and caregivers need to help promote a healthy pattern of eating rather than using ...

G98-1777 Windbreak Renovation, James R. Brandle, Jon Wilson, Craig Stange, Mike Kuhns Jan 1998

G98-1777 Windbreak Renovation, James R. Brandle, Jon Wilson, Craig Stange, Mike Kuhns

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Windbreaks are an integral part of many farms and ranches and provide critical protection for farmsteads, livestock and crops. Unfortunately, many windbreaks planted in the 1930s and 1940s are losing their effectiveness due to age, poor health or neglect. In some cases, the windbreak no longer has the necessary density to provide winter protection. In other cases, overcrowding may have reduced the health and vigor of the windbreak, or the windbreak may have been invaded by aggressive sod-forming grasses such as smooth brome, reducing tree growth. Whatever the reason, many older windbreaks need renovation.

G98-1350 Basics Of Feeding Horses: What To Feed And Why, Kathleen P. Anderson Jan 1998

G98-1350 Basics Of Feeding Horses: What To Feed And Why, Kathleen P. Anderson

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide discusses the horse's digestive system and appropriate feeding procedures.

Because of the horse's eating habits and digestive system, feeding practices common to other species of livestock often result in severe digestive dysfunction or even death for the horse. In fact, several anatomical peculiarities of the horse's digestive tract predispose horses to digestive disorders such as colic and laminitis even under the best management. Under poor feeding management, the onset of these disorders is almost assured. The objective of feeding management is to provide a ration with balanced nutrition that both maximizes nutrient utilization while minimizing ...


G98-1343 Fall Vegetable Gardening, Dale T. Lindgren, Susan D. Schoneweis Jan 1998

G98-1343 Fall Vegetable Gardening, Dale T. Lindgren, Susan D. Schoneweis

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide discusses the possibilities for and needs of a fall garden.

Though often overlooked by the gardener, planting vegetables in July and August for fall production is an excellent practice. Late plantings of cool- and warm-season vegetables can extend the harvest long after spring-planted crops have ceased production. Most cool-season vegetables grow as well as or better than those planted in the spring as they mature during shorter, cooler days. Flavors of vegetables maturing in the cool, crisp days of autumn are often sweeter and milder than those grown during hot summer weather. This is especially true for cole ...
