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

Good growth of poultry and heavy egg production depend to a large extent upon the proper housing of the stock. This bulletin sets forth the essentials of a good house for Iowa in brief form and then offers working plans of three houses that embody these essentials.

The first consideration in building a poultry house is its location. It is of greatest importance to select a site having well-drained soil as will be explained later. It is next important to have a convenient location. The poultry house may be nearer the residence than the live stock barns and as women have a large share in the management of the flock on the average farm, it should be so located. It is undesirable to build the poultry house near granaries, cribs, or barns which may furnish a harbor for rats and other vermin which prey on poultry. A sunny location well sheltered from the north winds is highly desirable whenever it is possible to obtain it without sacrificing good ground drainage.
