  1. Small Ruminant Production: Are CIDRs Reusable?

    Jun 28, 2022

    Whether it's at the state fair or local livestock auction, a conversation that commonly occurs among producers revolves around the success rate of their breeding programs. In New Zealand during the late 1980s, a controlled internal drug release (CIDR) was developed and released for intravaginal release of progesterone (P4).
  2. Evaluating Body Composition of Horses

    Jun 27, 2022

    Nutrition and feeding management support all aspects of a horse’s health and welfare. Regular evaluation of the horses in your care can help you identify potential issues before they develop further, as well as monitor progress toward a healthy physique. This fact sheet details how to measure and evaluate equine body weight, fat storage (i.e., body condition scoring), and muscling.
  3. Moderate Electric Fields (MEFs): A Fact Sheet for Food Processors

    Jun 21, 2022

    Electric field applications to food at moderate voltages can inactivate bacteria, thereby ensuring food safety. Recent findings demonstrate that by combining electric fields and agitation, harmful food bacteria can be inactivated at a temperature of only 80 F after 10 minutes, while retaining the food’s nutrients. Electric fields also facilitate some food processing operations, such as tomato peeling, by making vegetable and fruit cells permeable.
