G73-14 Grain Processing For Feedlot Cattle, Paul Q. Guyer Jan 1973

G73-14 Grain Processing For Feedlot Cattle, Paul Q. Guyer

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Several changes have occurred in the cattle feeding business which have focused attention on grain processing. The first of these was, the arrival of big feedlots provided an opportunity to use larger and more sophisticated processing equipment at reasonable cost per ton of feed produced. Also, the need to minimize feed separation and digestive disturbances encouraged the use of more sophisticated methods of processing.

A second development that is now focusing attention on grain processing is the rapidly increasing costs of equipment, fuel and labor involved in grain processing. In recent years, these have been increasing more rapidly than the ...


Rb160 Pink Rot Of Potatoes Caused By Phytophthora Erythroseptica Pethyb., R. W. Goss Jan 1949

Rb160 Pink Rot Of Potatoes Caused By Phytophthora Erythroseptica Pethyb., R. W. Goss

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

During the summer of 1943 reports were received of rotted tubers occurring in fields of early potatoes in central Nebraska. The fact that the tuber rot was present at harvest time and was associated with the early death of the plants rather than occurring as a postharvest disease indicated the presence of a disease factor previously unreported in Nebraska.


Influence Of Age Of Dairy Cattle And Season Of The Year On The Sex Ratio Of Calves And Services Required For Conception, R. F. Morgan, H. P. Davis Aug 1938

Influence Of Age Of Dairy Cattle And Season Of The Year On The Sex Ratio Of Calves And Services Required For Conception, R. F. Morgan, H. P. Davis

Historical Research Bulletins of the Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station

The present study was based on records of the dairy herd of the University of Nebraska for the period 1896 to 1934, and covers five breeds, Holsteins, Jerseys, Guernseys, Ayrshires, and milking Shorthorns. In all, 2,090 cows have been included. The purpose was to determine the influence of the age of the bull, the age of the cow, and the season of the year upon the number of services required for conception, and to determine also the influence of these factors upon the sex ratio of calves born, number of twins born, and the percentage of abortion.


These Fifty Years: A History Of The College Of Agriculture Of The University Of Nebraska, R. P. Crawford Jan 1925

These Fifty Years: A History Of The College Of Agriculture Of The University Of Nebraska, R. P. Crawford

Historical Circulars of the Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station

It seems especially appropriate at this time to publish a history of the College of Agriculture of the University of Nebraska. The year 1922 marked the fiftieth anniversary of the formal establishment of the college by the Board of Regents, while the year 1924 marked the fiftieth anniversary of the enrollment of the first students in agricultural subjects. It is hoped and intended that this little volume shall preserve for the future much valuable material that would otherwise soon be forgotten.


Strawberries In Nebraska, C. C. Wiggans Feb 1920

Strawberries In Nebraska, C. C. Wiggans

Historical Circulars of the Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station

The strawberry is probably the most important small fruit grown in Nebraska. It thrives well in all sections of the State where the moisture supply is not too limited, being found almost universally in home plantings. It is also produced commercially in certain favored localities but this acreage is limited.
