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 bulk of the fat cattle marketed from Iowa is fed by men who are farmers first and then cattle feeders. They feed cattle primarily for the purpose of marketing the roughage, grass and grain they produce, with perhaps some additional purchased corn and protein supplement.

There is an old saying current among cattle feeders that they seldom make much money feeding cattle but that they have to feed cattle in order1 to make money farming. The cattle feeder is interested in his land and counts as part of his returns from feeding the maintenance of soil fertility and high crop yields secured by use of the manure from the feedlot. His idea is concisely put in the old feeder’s rem ark that in 40 years of cattle feeding he had never lost money but that at times he had to figure on some rather high-priced manure.
