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

This test was planned to determine the advisability of adding a protein supplement to a basal ration of shelled com, corn silage, alfalfa hay and block salt for fattening range lambs; to compare the relative value of linseed oil meal, velvet bean feed meal and peanut meal as protein supplements added to the same basal ration; and to note the practicability of replacing the shelled corn in the basal ration with corn gluten feed, a corn by-product.

Linseed oil meal is a well established and popular supplement to corn widely used for lamb feeding. Velvet bean feed meal and peanut meal are comparatively new supplements, neither being fed to any great extent to live stock in the corn belt. However, both velvet beans and peanuts have been used in the southern states with fairly good results.
