Practical Use and Application of the Poultry Carbon Footprint Calculation Tool
The cumulative greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from any human activity are commonly referred to as the carbon footprint. The Poultry Carbon Footprint Calculation Tool was developed and designed specifically for poultry production farms. The tool can be used to estimate the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from pullet, breeder, and broiler grow-out farms. This publication provides an overview for poultry producers on how to use the tool and gives recommended applications. The tool can be downloaded at: http://www.poultry.uga.edu/extension/documents/GHGCalculationTool.xlsm Published on Jun 30, 2015.
Vegetable Fumigant Systemsfor Plasticulture in Georgia
Effective alternatives to methyl bromide exist, but selecting the ideal fumigant, mulch, and herbicide program is challenging. Growers must better understand how soil texture, moisture, bed compaction, and cultural practices influence fumigant activity, planting intervals, and off-gassing concerns. This circular is provided to assist growers with developing the most effective fumigant system for their farm in 2015. Published on Jun 30, 2013.
Cow Behavior: A Critical Factor to Consider Under Heat Stress
Cow behavior is critical for animal well-being and performance and influenced by many factors, such as heat stress. Under thermo-neutral conditions, cows spend half a day lying down and the rest of the time is distributed into standing, feeding and milking. However, when cows are exposed to heat stress, they spend less time lying down but more time standing up. The altered cattle behavior by heat stress may be associated with impaired productive and reproductive performance and an increase in disease incidence. This publication focuses on the impacts of environmental heat stress on cattle behavior and the possibly related consequences. Published on Jun 30, 2015.
