    Source: Penn State - Dairy and Animal Science Publications

    "The major factor limiting optimumreproductive performance on many farms is failureto detect estrus in a timely and accurate manner.Several prostaglandin (PG) products are availablefor use in synchronizing estrus in heifers andlactating dairy cattle. These products wereoriginally used to treat individual cows that hadnot exhibited heat by the time of desired firstservice. Several controlled or programmedbreeding programs have been developed forsynchronizing groups of lactating cattle.PG to all open cows within a breeding groupwithout palpation. The potential advantages ofcontrolled breeding are listed below.Potential advantages ofcontrolled breeding1. Improve the efficiency of heat detection.2. Achieve more timely first service. "

  3. 58% Agronomy Facts 38A: A nutrient management approach for Pennsylvania: Introduction to the concepts
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Nutrient management has taken on new meaning in recent times. Soil fertility traditionally dealt with supplying and managing nutrients to meet crop production requirements. The predictable response of a crop to the application of a deficient nutrient has been the focus. Ways of farming to optimize agronomic production and economic returns to crop production were developed to take advantage of these expected crop responses. Changes in the supply of plant nutrients for this purpose have been dramatic since the end of World War II."

  4. 58% Agronomy Facts 52: Potential of Narrow Row Corn Production in Pennsylvania [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Traditionally, corn produced in Pennsylvania and surrounding states is grown in rows that are 30 inches or wider. Now, producers and researchers are considering the potential of narrower rows such as 15 to 22 inches for corn production in Pennsylvania. The interest in narrow rows is sparked by several possible advantages of this production system: higher yields, better weed control, decreased potential for soil erosion, and increased nutrient uptake."

  5. 58% Agronomy Facts 56: Considerations for Double-cropping Corn Following Hay in Pennsylvania
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Double-cropping corn following the first cutting of hay can be an effective cropping strategy to maximize feed production on fields that are being rotated from hay to corn. Many crop producers in Pennsylvania routinely use this strategy with a good success rate, but it requires careful management. Without paying some attention to the details, you may obtain disappointing results. The objectives of this fact sheet are to review the advantages and disadvantages of double-cropping corn following hay and to provide some recommendations for improving the success rate of the practice."
