    Source: Penn State - Dairy and Animal Science Publications

    "Information gathered for dairy enterprise analysis may not be inadequate to provide sufficient detail on the various functions involved in raising the forages. Managerial accounting can provide the information needed to examine the efficiency of different functions within a business. One example is determining the cost of harvesting a ton of forage. "

    Source: Penn State - Dairy and Animal Science Publications

    "If producers employed the managerial cost accounting practices utilized in corporate America, the milking center would be considered a cost center. In a dairy business the milking herd is the main, and sometimes the only, profit center. "

  4. 40% Agronomy Facts 30: Forage Quality in Perspective [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Fluctuations in milk prices, feed costs, and government programs are forcing dairy farmers to become more efficient with their farm operation. Since feed accounts for approximately one-half of the total cost of producing milk, and high quality forage optimizes the productivity of the animals, increasing the quality of forage available is one of the best methods of improving overall feeding efficiency. To effectively produce high quality forage, it is necessary to understand what forage quality is and to keep the factors influencing forage quality in perspective."

  5. 40% Recycling Turfgrass Clippings
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Grass clippings and other yard debris represent a large percentage of solid waste deposited in landfills. An analysis of the composition of residential waste in Cincinnati, Ohio showed that yard debris (leaves, prunings, and grass clippings) accounted for nearly 20% of the total. A study in Plano, Texas (population 80,000) revealed that over 700 tons of grass clippings were collected and disposed of in landfills each week. In addition to the demand for landfill space, collection and disposal of this waste material is expensive."

  6. 39% Dairy Feed Industry Seminar 1999
    Source: Penn State - Dairy and Animal Science Publications

    "A difficulty that can arise in formulating rations is that the nutrient content of ration ingredients can vary quite widely, particularly when forages, such as hay and silage, or by-products, such as bakery waste, are included. The variation in nutrient content can have a negative impact on the productivity of the animals concerned, whetherthey are lactating cows or growing heifers. This negative impact is particularly critical if the producer considers the ration has sufficient nutrient content based on mean values.As a result the variation in nutrient should be taken into account when formulating therations."

  7. 39% Environmental Standards of Production for Larger Pork Producers in Pennsylvania [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Penn State - Dairy and Animal Science Publications

    "Pork production facilities have increased in size in recent years, and large operations now account for the majority of the pigs raised in the United States. This 28-page manual provides planning agencies, township supervisors, regulatory agencies, and hog farmers with a tool to gauge plans for developing a new swine farm or improving an existing site."

  8. 38% Agronomy Series #145: Pennsylvania State University Soil Characterization Laboratory Database System Documentation [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Soils have been sampled and analyzed in Pennsylvania for characterization since 1954. The initial sampling was done by the USDA Soil Conservation Service (SCS) now known as the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). Subsequent samplings have been done by the Penn State Soil Characterization Laboratory, US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the NRCS. Presently, 949 pedons (profiles) have been collected and analyzed. An account of the history of the sampling is given in Ciolkosz (1998). Initially the data (site, horizon, and laboratory) was available in hard copy printed form. Since the development of the computer, particularly the PC with large data capacities, the Pennsylvania analysis system and data have been computerized (see Ciolkosz, 2000; Ciolkosz and Thurman, 1992, 1994; Thurman et al., 1994). In order for a computer system to have longevity as it is modified and updated by computer programmers, the data system must be documented. Thus, the objective of this publication is to document the Penn State University Soil Characterization Laboratory Database System."
