    How to Create the Most Effective Soil Sampling Program

    By Laura Barrera

    Will we see automated drone sprayers in the future?

    By Pat Rogers

    Published Feb 24, 2021 

    What is the likelihood that we will see drones spraying commodity value crops like corn and soybeans in the near future? Will this ever be cost effective and efficient enough to replace airplane spraying or even in field sprayers?

    Milk production and Economic Assessment of Cassava Bagasse in the feed of Dairy Cows

    Authors: Leandro Pereira Lima, Cristina Mattos Veloso, Fabiano Ferreira da Silva, Aureliano José Vieira Pires, Fábio Andrade Teixeira, Paulo Valter Nunes Nascimento

    The addition of 0; 5; 10 and 15% cassava bagasse, based on the dry matter of the total diet of crossbred Holstein v. Zebu cows, was evaluated on milk production and composition and on the impacts of diet costs. The animals, weighing an average of 478.5 kg, were in the middle third lactation period. Diet with 15% cassava bagasse provided a 13.2% increase in production when compared to control. Feed conversion had a quadratic effect with minimum point at 4.2% of cassava bagasse inclusion. Crude protein, the only milk component that changed, increased linearly with the inclusion of cassava bagasse levels. Treatment with 15% cassava bagasse caused a more effective operational cost (42.8% higher when compared to control) and the highest leveling point for milk production and price. The lowest leveling points were treatments with 5 and 10% inclusion of cassava bagasse, which had the best economic results. Concentrates caused cost increase, particularly when roughage : concentrate ratio decreased due to higher cassava bagasse inclusion levels.
