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

Excellent quality hay may be made with the windrow pick-up baler.

A windrow pick-up baler, operated at Iowa State College during the haymaking season of 1933, showed an average capacity of 1.59 tons of alfalfa per hour and a labor requirement of 2.52 man hours per ton. After the operators had developed some skill, the capacity of the machine in baling one crop from a field was increased to 3 tons per hour, and the labor expenditure lowered to 1.35 man hours per ton.
