Nf94-204 Computing The Dollar Value Of Concentrates And Byproduct Feeds For Dairy Cattle, Rick Grant

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Feed costs represent 50 to 60 percent of variable milk production costs. Consequently, feed costs play a major role in determining the profitability of a dairy enterprise. Specifically, a producer should focus on "income above feed costs" to assess total feeding system profitability.

Ec94-1772 Windbreaks In Sustainable Agricultural Systems, James R. Brandle, Teresa Boes, Vernon Quam, John Gardner Jan 1994

Ec94-1772 Windbreaks In Sustainable Agricultural Systems, James R. Brandle, Teresa Boes, Vernon Quam, John Gardner

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Sustainable agriculture is a system of whole-farm resource use balanced with whole-farm productivity. The overall level of productivity achieved is dependent upon the ability to coordinate and manage simultaneously the soil, water, plant, and animal resources within climatic and economic limits. Both the kind and amount of plants and animals supported by the system are important and play significant roles, both individually and collectively in maintaining a healthy farm environment. In the future, integrated systems will help reduce human impact on resources while providing sufficient supplies of high quality food and fiber.

Windbreaks provide protection for people, animals, buildings, crops ...

Ec94-738 Using Agricultural Anhydrous Ammonia Safely, Robert D. Grisso, David Morgan, Rollin D. Schnieder Jan 1994

Ec94-738 Using Agricultural Anhydrous Ammonia Safely, Robert D. Grisso, David Morgan, Rollin D. Schnieder

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Anhydrous ammonia is one of the most efficient and widely used sources of nitrogen for row-crop production. Because it is a cheap source of nitrogen and readily available, large quantities of anhydrous ammonia are used as nitrogen fertilizer.

Anhydrous ammonia has disadvantages, especially in handling. It must be stored and handled under high pressure, which requires specially designed and well-maintained equipment. In addition, to ensure operator safety, workers must be trained to handle this product and to follow strict work procedures.

Ec94-1766 Windbreaks For Livestock Operations, James R. Brandle, Vernon Quam, Ladon Johnson, Bruce Wight Jan 1994

Ec94-1766 Windbreaks For Livestock Operations, James R. Brandle, Vernon Quam, Ladon Johnson, Bruce Wight

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Windbreaks play an important role in the protection of livestock, particularly in young animals and in areas with cold northerly winds during the winter and early spring. Properly placed windbreaks can provide benefits to feedlots, livestock pastures, and calving areas. Reducing wind speed in winter lowers animal stress, improves animal health, and increases feeding efficiency. Livestock windbreaks provide significant amounts of wildlife habitat, protect the working environment in and around the livestock area, and screen noise and odors associated with livestock operations.

Specific needs of animals dictate that special attention be given to access, snow storage, and drainage when planning ...


G94-1196 Vegetables And Herbs As Ornamentals (Revised November 1996), Susan D. Schoneweis Jan 1994

G94-1196 Vegetables And Herbs As Ornamentals (Revised November 1996), Susan D. Schoneweis

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide discusses the use of vegetables as ornamental plants.

Many vegetables have ornamental, as well as food value. In fact, when tomatoes were first introduced to Europe, they were believed to be poisonous and were used only as ornamentals. Using vegetables as ornamentals is not just for those without space for a traditional vegetable garden. Incorporating vegetables into the landscape and using them as decorative container plants for porches and patios can make vegetable gardening more fun.
