Christens host field tour near Albany July 25 By Dan Martens, U of M Extension John and Joe Christen will host a O of M Extension nutrient man- agement .field" tour on their farm on Monday July 25 about 2.5 miles south and west of Albany at 33001 Co. Rd. 10. Watch for signs. Sharpening nutrient manage- ment practices is good for the pock- etbook and for care of water and soil resources. It can be a factor in livestock'rations. This tour is part of a series of field days being held at several locations to show and discuss on- farm field trials being done to look at nutrient management in alfalfa/ corn rotations in Minnesota. The field trials are designed to take a closer look at potassium manage- ment, nitrogen credits from alfalfa for first and second year corn fol- lowing alfalfa, manure manage- menL and tillage systems for tran- sition from alfalfa to corn. Discussion on these topics will be offered by LI of M Exten- sion corn agronomist Jeff Coulter, manure and nutrient specialist Jose Hernandez, research assistant Matt Yost, Stearns SWCD/NRCS staff, and a farmer panel. Yost will guide a tour of the field plots and steps taken to evaluate these trials. Registration will start at 9:45 a.m. with the tour program from 10 to noon. The event is free and open to the public. Refresh- ments will be provided by AgStar Financial Services. In case of inclement weather, call U of M Farm Information Line at (800) 232-9077 or listen to KASM radio at 1150 AM for possible post- ponement of the tour. The field trials are sponsored by Minnesota Corn Growers Asso- ciation, Minnesota Ag Fertilizer Research and Evaluation Council, USDA Ag Research Service; NOrth Central Sustainable Ag Research and Education, and Southern MN Nutrient Efficiency Coalition.

Pigs are especially, challenged because they do not have functional sweat glands to assist them in efficiently reducing body heat. Although most pigs today are raised in modern facilities that provide some climate control, we are still limited in most facilities with our ability to cool pigs during extreme heat. Pigs naturally remove body heat during periods of heat stress through acombination of: Accelerated respiration. Decreased feed intake. Increased water consumption. Adjustments in physical activ- ity and movement .According to University of Min- nesota Extension, here's how pork producers can minimize heat stress for their pigs: Prepare and maintain cool- ing systems. Check cooling sys- tems to ensure proper function. Ensure thermostats, fans, air inlets, drip coolers, sprinklers, cooling cells and any other related equip- ment are set for summer usage. Use of sprinklers along with fans can reduce the temperature in barns as long as the sprinklers are set cor- rectly. Avoid sprinklers that pro- duce a very fine mist because they will increase humidity levels in the barn. Similarly, cooling cells will be mu( humidil systems from bu Adju Since intake ( peraturq tional d ing pig may in( include Check dail00 (obituaries are www.tri( h more effective at lower y levels. Adjust ventilation to remove excess moisture ildings. t the feeding program. igs will reduce their feed uring periods of high tem- ;s, increase the nutri- ensity of the diet for grow- ; and lactating sows. You rease the caloric density by g increased fat levels in the diet; however, if other nutrient lev- els are not also increased accord: ingly, animal performance will still  suffer. Modify procedures during load- out and transportation of pigs. Per- haps the most stressful time for pigs in periods of heat is during transportation. Remove feed from pigs for 12-18.hours prior to moving them for market (remove feed, but not water). Load fewer pigs in order to allow maximum air movement. Keep vehicles in constant motion and open all vents and slats. Try to avoid moving pigs during the heat of the day, and allow more time for loading of pigs. Pigs are more apt to become fatigued during hot weather. Additional time and patience is required to effectively load pigs while minimizing stress on the pig as well as on the handler.
