One way to judge the cost/benefit is to estimate drying costs and dividing that cost into the local price of corn to give you an idea of the percent corn loss you could withstand by waiting and harvesting later
Genomic editing technology such as CRISPR/Cas9 offers tremendous potential for accelerating genetic progress, but a new ruling from the European Court of Justice (ECJ) appears likely to stifle research and development.
The amount and composition of milk produced by dairy cows appears to be more regulated by internal, annual biological rhythms than by environmental factors such as heat and humidity, according to Penn State researchers.
Michigan State University researchers Lorraine Sordillo and Ángel Abuelo, both in the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine, have been awarded a four-year, $500,000 grant for their work with dairy calves.
