  1. 100% Feeding the Newborn Dairy Calf [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Penn State - Dairy and Animal Science Publications

    "Calf health, growth, and productivity rely heavily on nutrition and management practices. Every heifer calf born on a dairy farm represents an opportunity to maintain or increase herd size, to improve the herd genetically, or to improve economic returns to the farm. The objectives of raising the newborn calf to weaning age are optimizing growth and minimizing health problems. To accomplish these goals, it is necessary to understand the calf?s digestive and immune systems, her nutrient needs, and the feed options available to meet those needs."

  3. 85% Pennsylvania Farm-A-Syst: Worksheet 3: Household Wastewater Treatment System [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Nearly one-third of Pennsylvania residents rely on private household waste treatment systems. Maintenance of these systems is the responsibility of the home owner. Up to 50% of the solids retained in a septic system decompose while the remainder accumulate in the tank. Septic tanks need to be pumped every 3 to 5 years to prevent the solids from escaping the tank and clogging drain-fields. The frequency of the pumping depends on the size of the septic tank and the number of people it serves."

  4. 83% Agronomy Facts 64: Weed Management in Organic Cropping Systems
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "When managing weeds in organic systems, producers use many of the same techniques used in conventional systems, but they rely much more on nonchemical control strategies. The primary weed control strategies for organic systems are cultural and mechanical, focusing on prevention, crop rotation, crop competition, and cultivation."

  5. 83% Conservation Tillage Series: Nutrient Management in Conservation Tillage Systems [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "To understand soil fertility and nutrient management in conservation tillage systems, we need to recognize the unique conditions in these systems that influence nutrient behavior and management. One of the most important functions of conservation tillage systems is the maintenance of crop residues on the soil surface to protect the soil from erosion."

  6. 82% Agronomy Facts 38B: A nutrient management approach for Pennsylvania: Plant nutrient stocks and flows
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Almost all decision-making in agriculture, in the boardrooms of industry or on the tractor seats of farms, affects the distribution of materials such as crops and manure within farms, and the movement of materials such as feeds and farm products to and from farms. Most common farm materials contain important plant nutrients, such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, and are moved as part of the everyday activities of farming and agriculture. As a result, the many factors considered in each management decision affect plant nutrient distribution and have implications for nutrient management to meet the many expectations."
