  • Evaluation of maize inbred lines for resistance to aspergillus and fusarium ear rot and mycotoxin accumulation

    Mycotoxin contamination in corn (Zea mays L.) grain is a worldwide threat to safety of both human food and animal feed. A select group of inbred corn lines was evaluated in field trials for ear rot caused by Aspergillus flavus and Fusarium verticillioides and mycotoxin accumulation in grain. Our goal was to identify lines resistant to both fungi. In separate tests, 20 inbred lines were inoculated ...

  • Multi-residue mycotoxin analysis of dry distillers grains

    Distillers grains (DG) are the still residues after the ethanol has been collected. Approximately 90% of US production is used in domestic animal feed. Any Mycotoxins present in the fresh corn can be concentrated by a factor of three. Contamination can also occur during storage. This raises concern about the potential animal and human health hazards from the use of Mycotoxincontaminated ...

  • Fate of indicator microorganisms under nutrient management plan conditions

    Nutrient management plans (NMPs) for application of wastewater from concentrated animal feeding operations are designed to meet crop water and nutrient requirements, but implicitly assume that pathogenic microorganisms in the wastewater will be retained and die-off in the root zone. A NMP was implemented on a field plot to test this assumption by monitoring the fate of several fecal indicator ...

  • Biomagnification and tissue distribution of perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) in market‐size rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)

    The biomagnification potential as well as the substance and tissue specific distribution of perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) in market‐size rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) was investigated. Rainbow trout with an average body weight of 314 ± 21 g were exposed to perfluorobutane sulfonate (PFBS), perfluorohexane sulfonate (PFHxS), perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS), perfluorooctanoic acid ...

  • The KAHL Crown Expander - a Way out of the Feed Structure Dilemma

    Introduction: For some time now, more and more have turned away worldwide, particularly in Germany, from the hitherto customary fine grinding of pig and poultry feed. For a time, fine grinding was seen as key to achieve high feed conversion rates and good pellet quality with low fines. But today, it is recognised more and more that the vulnerability of our livestock is growing with the ...

  • JM Farm Pond Water Case Study

    JM Farms, located in Kentucky, had been experiencing significant buildup of biofilm and slime in the water system. The biofilm and slime buildup led to water with a poor taste and odor, decreased water and feed consumption, longer flock cycles and fewer-than-expected head sold, which resulted lower revenue for the farm. Understanding the impact that better treated water can have on the key ...

  • Spent grain dewatering

  • Iceland: New poultry house for broiler production - Case Study

    There is a good reason why Iceland’s agriculture is dominated by animal husbandry: the island country in Northern Europe has a very unique nature, which is, however, also characterised by lava fields and a harsh climate. Only 1 % of the country’s area is suitable for cultivation, another 19.5 % can be used as pasture.  Poultry production is one branch of Iceland’s ...

  • Phosphorus And Compost Use Dynamics

    Organic forms of phosphorus, such as biosolids and compost products, contain low to very low levels of water extractable phosphorus, but increasingly are regulated like inorganic P sources. Phosphorus is one of the 16 essential plant nutrients, and is considered one of the three major plant nutrients (along with nitrogen and potassium). Phosphorus is not only important in root development, but ...

  • Redefining ag-wastes as coproducts

    Alan Doering doesn’t have the word “waste” in his vocabulary. As the scientist heading up the Agricultural Utilization Research Institute’s (AURI) coproduct utilization program, Doering sees crop residue, agricultural processing leftovers and biomass as products with value worth exploring. “Every leftover or coproduct has a value,” Doering says. “Our goal is to find the best use with the highest ...

  • How green was my Vertical Farm?

    By 2050, 80% of the earth’s population will live in cities and 3 billion more people will need to be fed. The simple fact is we are running out of available land to grow enough food to feed them. If we can’t grow our cities outward to find more arable land, the only solution is to grow them upwards. This may change the way we design cities forever.The problem is real and immediate. Even by most ...

  • Let the kids go wild outdoors

    A number of international studies have shown that children in developed nations spend an average of 55 hours a week indoors using electronics. Even though this means that the youth in these countries are techno-savvy, it often results in them spending less and less time outdoors. How do we change this, and get our kids to experience the wonders of nature, develop creativity and learn to ...
