  • Short Note: Spray drying skim milk, concentrated milk and full cream milk

    Spray dryers are used to transform a liquid, i.e. solutions, suspensions or emulsions into dried powders. It is a quick, gentle and single step drying process. A major application is the production of milk powder. In general, liquid milk is easily denaturized and difficult to store for a long time. To prolong its shelf life and to simplify transportation milk is spray dried to milk powder. Food ...

  • Biological hydrogen production: effects of inoculation and production media

    In this work inoculation media are selected as potato, glycerine and milk to investigate the best storage condition that is important to maintain microorganism activity and stable hydrogen production performance. Cheese whey, potato and enriched potato (with additional glucose and CaCO3) are used as the production media and their hydrogen production results are compared in ...

  • How to Make Horse Feed Pellets

    Why should you make feed pellets for your equines? In ancient times horses were the main driving force of agricultural production, transportation and military activities. With the invention of power machinery and its wide application, field operations were almost replaced by tractors. Horses are mainly used for equestrian sports and production of milk and meat. The modern horse owners ...


  • Effect of storage conditions on physico–chemical attributes and physiological responses of 'milk' (Musa spp., AAB group) banana during fruit ripening

    Knowledge of fruit physico–chemical properties and physiological responses is important for the design and development of appropriate postharvest handling and storage systems to reduce losses and maintain quality. The objective of this study was to investigate the changes in physico–chemical attributes and physiology of 'milk' banana cultivar at three ripening stages (unripe, fully ...

  • Mono nov pumps cuts paper mill costs

    The mill was facing production losses as high as 5% because the existing pumps were fitted with flushing shaft seals. The flushing water was diluting the coating mixture and upsetting the viscosity of the clay (500cP to 2,000cP), resulting in a marked reduction in the quality of the finished product. The coating clay contains 55-75% solids, including kaolin, marble, carbonates and titanium oxide, ...

  • Cove Mt. Farm - stream crossing, Pennsylvania - Case Study

    Cove Mt. Farm, located in South Central, Pennsylvania had three stream crossings used to move livestock and farm equipment across Little Cove Creek. The 40-foot wide main crossing, located about 100 yards east of the milking center, received the most traffic. While the streambed was fairly firm at this site, an improved crossing with level footing would provide a safer crossing for the animals ...

  • Compost science journal of advocacy and foresight

    SEVERAL months ago, I started on a journey through the pages of Compost Science, beginning with the Spring, 1960 inaugural issue. I was confident that I could whip through the articles and news items in the several hundred issues of the magazine between 1960 and 2009, and be prepared to write this article for BioCycle’s 50th Anniversary Commemorative Edition. Granted, there were interruptions, ...

  • Rice Milk

    A container of commercially available rice milk was obtained and diluted with water to make a 10% v/v solution. A series of jar tests were run to determine the most appropriate FloccinAgentTM to utilize in the removal of the Suspended Solids and reduction in BOD, which was Floccin D. A further larger scale evaluation was made to determine the quantification of Floccin required to obtain optimal ...

  • Differential transcriptional response of bifidobacterium longum to human milk, formula milk, and galactooligosaccharide

    In order to gain insight into the effects of human breast milk on the development of the intestinal bifidobacteria and associated health effects, the transcriptome of Bifidobacterium longum LMG 13197 grown in breast milk and formula milk containing galactooligosaccharides (GOS) and long-chain fructooligosaccharides was compared to that obtained ...

  • Research note: Why a social impact study in Tanzania?

    Farmers in Korogwe in northeast Tanzania mostly have very limited smallholdings on which they grow maize, the staple food in this area, and have one or two cows with a few having up to eight cows. The farmers wanted to pool their resources to allow them to raise some revenue by selling their surplus milk. This research note outlines involvement with a scheme to assist the farmers, and confirms ...

  • Got Milk? Got Wastewater Too! Treatment of Dairy Processing Wastewater

    ABSTRACTA major dairy processing operation owned and operated by the Michigan Milk Producers Association (MMPA) located in central lower Michigan was required to design and construct a process wastewater treatment plant within a 14 month period. The system is sized to treat up to 0.5 MGD of dairy processing wastewater at a biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) concentration up to 1,846 mg/L. Effluent ...

  • Composting Food Residuals on Campus

    Two professors at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls (UW-RF) have used their knowledge of organics recycling projects to implement a food residuals composting program on campus. “It just makes sense in the long run to divert these materials now and lay the groundwork for the future,” says Bob Butler of the Agricultural Engineering Department, who is working closely with Jerry Nolte, an ...
