After imposition of fees for disposal of cattle carcasses by the rendering industry, on-farm methods of mortality disposal are being investigated. Three open-air mortality compost windrows were constructed in January (JAN) and February (FEB) of 2004 in the cold, semiarid climate of southern...
- Humanure. Davy, Annie // Resurgence & Ecologist;May/Jun2012, Issue 272, p26
In this article, the author focuses on the ecological relevance of compost toilets. He says that most compost toilets use dry or hot box systems which separate urine from the solid matter and create the conditions that generate heat and kill harmful pathogens through the decomposition process....
- The impact of heat treatment methods on the physical properties and cooking yield of selected muscles from Limousine breed cattle. Wyrwisz, Jaroslaw; P�ltorak, Andrzej; Polawska, Ewa; Pierzchala, Mariusz; J�zzwik, Artur; Zalewska, Magdalena; Zaremba, Robert; Wierzbicka, Agnieszka // Animal Science Papers & Reports;2012, Vol. 30 Issue 4, p339
The aim of this study was to analyse the impact of heat treatment methods (frying - FR, grilling - GR, roasting - RO 180ï¿½C, roasting - RO ?T) on certain physical properties and the cooking yield of selected muscles of cattle. Used were samples of five muscles from 40 beef carcasses: m....
