New publications available from Communication Services
Three new publications are now available from Communication Services.
· The Best Pet For You, AG-668, can help you select the pet best for your personality and lifestyle. It summarizes some of the positives and negatives of owning different companion animals based on the level of commitment required, time and space needs, behavior and health considerations, and budget. The animals discussed include dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, rats and mice, gerbils, guinea pigs, hamsters, reptiles, and fish. Kimberly Ange wrote the eight-page publication.
· Cow Herd Management Calendar, AG-655-1, offers timelines for both spring (January through March) and fall (October through December) calving. Profitability of your cow herd depends on good planning and appropriate timing of major herd activities, and planning activities based on the appropriate timeline will help prevent a prolonged calving season, decreased conception rates, and lowered profitability. Jim Turner and Matt Poore wrote this eight-page publication.
· Beef and Goat Forage Management Calendar for North Carolina Operations, AG-655-3, provides a timeline you can use in scheduling forage management procedures. The profitability of most beef and goat operations depends on proper forage management. Jim Turner and Jim Green wrote this six-page publication.
