Early Spring Pasture Management
Having a blue moon is a rare sight that we were blessed with in January this year, but now as we creep slowly into spring, day length will lengthen, grass will start to take on a greener colour and temperatures will rise. This is a good time to prepare pastures for the year ahead. Grass that was closed off early last autumn should be the most advanced on farms at this stage. Pasture management: Apply nitrogen to kick start grass for the year ahead (E.g. 30-50 units/acre). Apply slurry at levels dictated...
New Manure Sidedress Method Lowers Fertilizer Costs, Increases Yields
With corn needing nitrogen, and pigs and cattle producing a lot of it, anything that offers a better way to use their waste to fortify crops should intrigue farmers. Two agriculture experts at The Ohio State University have redesigned a metal tractor attachment so that it allows farmers to put manure on a field while crops are emerging. Applying manure to growing crops, which is not widely done in Ohio or nationwide, can boost yields, reduce nutrient losses, and give livestock producers and commercial manure...
Using Liquid Manure to Fertilize Wheat? Consider Timing, Nitrogen Content
Liquid livestock manure can be a great option as a spring top-dress fertilizer for wheat fields if applied during the appropriate window of time and if it has the right amount of nitrogen, according to research conducted by the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences at The Ohio State University. In a report published in the latest issue of the college’s Crop Observation and Recommendation Network (C.O.R.N) newsletter, experts said there is a window of time, usually around the last week...
LWR manure treatment system goes solar
Solar energy is now making it easier for farms to implement the manure treatment technology that is revolutionizing the livestock industry. Livestock Water Recycling`s Innovation Centre has just released the latest advancement in manure treatment technology which allows farmers the ability to power their LWR Manure Treatment System by solar energy."Farmers inherently want to leave the world better than they found it" says Gareth Jenkins, LWR design engineer who oversaw the solar power project; "Environmentalism...
Collaborative Effort Yields Manure Fact Sheet
Thanks to a long-term, collaborative effort, a new fact sheet detailing Beneficial Uses of Manure and Environmental Protection has been released. NCBA and other livestock groups, in partnership with the Environmental Protection Agency recently released the document which details the importance of manure and demonstrates to the public the ways in which it can benefit the economy while also being managed in ways which protect the environment. The publication of this fact sheet marks the first time that NCBA and EPA...
