Class III futures are averaging $14.69 through 2018. So this new year doesn’t look anything like 2009, or does it? Dave Swartz, Assistant Director of Programs, Animal Systems, at Penn State University, notes Class III prices in 2009 averaged a paltry $11.36/cwt. Adjusted for inflation over the last nine years, the 2009 Class III would be about $13.06 today.
With two, large hog processing plants coming on line last year and a third in construction, a lot more blood meal, and at cheaper prices, are coming onto the market. That’s the good news. The concern: The quality of this by-product feed, like other types of by-products, could vary by plant and by lot, says Ken Griswold, a senior dairy technical service manager for Kemin. Full disclosure: Kemin does produce a rumen-protected amino acid, USA Lysine.
Research at the W.H. Miner Agricultural Research Institute in New York shows planting corn into a growing stand of winter rye can reduce silage yield of the subsequent corn crop. Trial results from 2016 showed corn silage yields decreased by 4 tons per acre. Eric Young, an agronomist at the Miner Institute, suspects planting the corn into actively growing rye exacerbated a yield penalty associated with the rye.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
