G95-1255 Shock Chlorination Of Domestic Water Supplies, William L. Kranz, Delynn Hay, Al Ackerman Jan 1995

G95-1255 Shock Chlorination Of Domestic Water Supplies, William L. Kranz, Delynn Hay, Al Ackerman

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide describes procedures for introducing chlorine to eliminate bacteria in private water systems. Unlike public water supplies that are regularly tested to ensure the water is safe to drink, individuals or families using private water supplies are responsible for testing for contamination. If test results indicate that bacterial contamination is occurring, shock chlorination is the most widely suggested method of treatment. Shock chlorination is the one-time introduction of a strong chlorine solution into the entire water distribution system (well, pump, distribution pipeline, hot water heater, etc.).


G95-1259 Wildlife And Disease--Public Health Concerns, Dallas Virchow, Scott E. Hygnstrom, Wayne L. Kramer Jan 1995

G95-1259 Wildlife And Disease--Public Health Concerns, Dallas Virchow, Scott E. Hygnstrom, Wayne L. Kramer

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide describes human health risks and symptoms associated with prominent diseases of Nebraska's wildlife. Listed are precautions for minimizing exposure and preventing infection.

Zoonoses (zoe-uh'-no-sez') are diseases that can be transmitted from animals to humans. Wild animals and domestic animals share some disease-causing organisms and either group can transmit diseases to people. Transmission can occur directly through contact with tissues or body fluids of animals. Indirect transmission can occur through insects, ticks and mites that feed on infected animals.


Nf95-219 Common Ground: State Conservation Reserve, William Miller Jan 1995

Nf95-219 Common Ground: State Conservation Reserve, William Miller

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

The Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) has been a popular part of the federal farm program for the past several years because it contributes to farm income, soil conservation, and wildlife habitat. Landowners have found the annual payments for enrolling land in the CRP to be a financially attractive alternative to producing crops. Higher commodity prices due to fewer crop acres has been an additional benefit to landowners. Environmentalists have been pleased with the lower soil losses from the land and the improved stream environment associated with the CRP. Wildlife advocates are strong supporters of the CRP. For example, the Wildlife ...


Nf95-218 Conjunctive Use Policy Options, William Miller Jan 1995

Nf95-218 Conjunctive Use Policy Options, William Miller

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Background

The hydrologic cycle controls water available for use. Rainfall, evaporation, runoff, percolation, and transpiration combine to influence the water available at a specific location at a particular point in time. The speed at which water moves among stages in the hydrologic cycle and the amount of time it spends in storage at any stage affects water availability to users. The conjunctive use issue refers to the portion of the hydrologic cycle where groundwater and surface water interface and influence each other.

Users who couldn't depend on an irregular flow of water over time developed systems that modify the ...


Ec95-273 Swine Nutrition Guide, Duane Reese, Robert C. Thaler, Mike Brumm, Austin J. Lewis, Philip S. Miller, George W. Libal Jan 1995

Ec95-273 Swine Nutrition Guide, Duane Reese, Robert C. Thaler, Mike Brumm, Austin J. Lewis, Philip S. Miller, George W. Libal

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This publication is a revision of the previous swine nutrition publication prepared by the Universityof Nebraska and South DakotaState University. The focus of the publication continues to be on nutrient recommendations for swine. Specific factors (nutritional, environmental and managerial) that affect nutrient recommendations have been considered and discussed. We believe that the identification and description of the factors provide the framework for the nutrient recommendations presented inTables 11 to 16. Industry advisors representing various facets of the pork industry were recruited to review and challenge the concepts incorporated in this publication. Also, in situations where “gray areas” existed, these industry ...


G95-1260 Fate Of Insecticides Used For Termite Control In Soil, Shripat T. Kamble Jan 1995

G95-1260 Fate Of Insecticides Used For Termite Control In Soil, Shripat T. Kamble

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide provides information on effects of soil and chemical properties affecting behavior of termiticides in soil.

Termites cause substantial damage to residential and commercial buildings in the United States. It has been estimated that the annual cost for controlling termites and repairing their damage in the United States exceeds $1.7 billion. Subterranean termites, the most destructive of all termites, account for 95 percent of this damage.


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 ...
