Extension and Experiment Station Publications
It can be very challenging to locate information about individual ISU Extension publications via the library website. Quick Search will list the name of the series, but it will not list individual publications within each series. The Parks Library Reference Collection has a List of Current Series, Serial Publications (Series Publications of Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service), published as of March 2004. It lists each publication from 1888-2004 (by title and publication number - and in some cases it will show an author name).

Abstract

Not long since, the prevailing system of raising calves in Iowa and other agricultural states of similar conditions consisted in allowing the calf to follow the dam and take all of the milk. With the advent of the creamery and the separator came new methods. Now the former system is the exception on a majority of farms even where beef production is a prime object. Whole milk is too expensive for calf feeding and the better utilization of butter fat for dairy purposes necessitates the use of separator or skim milk for feeding. This necessity has appeared to be a serious obstacle, and calf raising in many sections devoted to dairying has been largely abandoned until the recent advance in prices of young stock set in.
