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

The object of this experiment is to determine whether it would pay to feed the stock steer while running in pasture. The experiment has been confined to one variety of dry feed (com meal finely ground.)

Fourteen steers were put in the experiment, six two-years-old and eight yearlings. Twelve were Holsteins and two were Short-homs. One Short-hom and six Holsteins constituted each lot. Two fields of seven acres each were provided for pasture. The cattle were turned to pasture on the 22d day of May, 1893. The pasture was seven inches high and consisted chiefly of clover with a good sprinkling of timothy and blue grass. The season had been very favorable for the growth of grass, hence the pasture was in ideal condition.
