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 value of milk for young animals is well known to Iowa farmers; its value as part of a feeding ration for all animals has not been so well determined. Dairying is increasing so fast in the state, that this Station thought it wise to ascertain the value of milk, as a ration, or part of a ration, for cows giving milk. During the interval between college terms in 1891, we had surplus full milk, and skimmed milk, that we resolved to feed to cows on pasture to ascertain its effect on milk-giving.

We took two Holstein cows to experiment with, Nos. 155 and 151. The former had been giving milk fora month, the latter was fresh.
