Cover crops for grazing

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Producers who want to use the cover crops they planted last fall as supplemental feed for their livestock may want to harvest these crops quickly before the plants get too mature and the feed quality declines, says a forage expert from the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences at The Ohio State University.Although cover crops are typically planted to control erosion and improve soil structure and health, they can also be a good option as supplemental forage for livestock, said Rory Lewandowski, agriculture and natural resources educator for Ohio State University Extension.“There are a number of dairy farmers who take a cutting off of cover crops that are planted in the fall, like cereal rye and winter wheat, harvest it and use it as a wet forage, and then plant corn for silage,” Lewandowski said. “And warm-season cover crops including clovers, sudangrass, sorghum-sudangrass hybrids or spring-planted radishes used to promote soil health can also be grazed by livestock or mechanically harvested and used as stored forage”However, while cover crops such as cereal rye, triticale and winter wheat can also be used as supplemental forage for livestock, they need to be harvested in a timely fashion for optimal use, he said.“Cereal rye quality declines the most rapidly as the plant enters the reproductive growth stage, and it advances most rapidly from vegetative to reproductive growth compared to the other two forages,” Lewandowski said. “So producers should harvest these crops at boot to very early head stage of maturity.”Producers should harvest these crops as silage or as wrapped forage as the best option for supplemental feed because there typically aren’t many good drying days during spring in the region, he said.“Also, producers who choose to graze cattle on these cover crops should make sure they have enough animals to graze across the field before the crops get too mature and lose quality,” Lewandowski said. “It is also important to give livestock no more than one or two days’ worth of grazing at a time before moving the fence to provide access to another portion of the crops when using strip grazing.”Producers also need to be aware that grazing on spring growth of winter wheat or cereal rye can increase the potential for grass tetany in livestock, particularly in cows still nursing calves less than four months old, he said.“Grass tetany is a potentially fatal nutritional disorder in livestock caused by low blood magnesium levels,” Lewandowski said. “Grass tetany can be prevented by feeding animals that graze in lush, rapidly growing grass pastures a high-magnesium mineral mix starting at least a week or two before spring grazing and continuing throughout the spring grazing period.”A free-choice high-magnesium mix should contain 12-15% magnesium from magnesium oxide and can be mixed with a grain or flavoring agent such as molasses to encourage cattle to eat it, he said. The mixture should be fed to cattle daily in 4-ounce portions throughout late spring until forages are more mature and temperatures are warmer, Lewandowski said.Tetany is most likely to be seen in early spring grazing as cool-season grasses and small grains such as wheat and rye are most often low in magnesium and calcium and high in potassium, he said.Signs of grass tetany include muscle twitching in the flank, muscular incoordination, grazing away from the herd, irritability, wide eyes, staring, staggering, collapse, thrashing and coma. It can quickly result in death.last_img read more

Filmmaker Roundtable: The Connection Between Music and Creativity

first_imgDamien Chazelle on the Ups and Downs of CreatingImage via LionsgateChazelle’s path to filmmaking success isn’t uncommon, with a well-received short film eventually leading to feature film opportunities. He wears his love of movies on his sleeve and is quick to express appreciation for the romanticism and nostalgic warmth that accompanies that love. Here he discusses staying focused while experiencing the ups and downs of making your way in Hollywood.It was like, years of trying to get La La Land made in Hollywood. Everyone saying not just no, but, like, “Please go away. We don’t want to hear about original musicals.” I did Whiplash out of necessity a little bit. Whiplash was a much smaller movie that I was able to actually put the money together for. But the whole time I was making Whiplash, I was hoping, if this doesn’t entirely suck, it will give me some kind of calling card to make La La Land.On how the quality of contemporary television and online content pushes filmmakers to work harder in order to get people out of their homes and into theaters:We [read] a lot of doom and gloom about how movies are dying and TV is to blame or the internet is to blame or whatever. There’s a lot of “woe is me” think pieces, as opposed to just welcoming that there’s good content that’s raising the bar. And that, okay, maybe that just means we have to try harder to get people. That led to some interesting things in the ’50s when TV first came around. It’s always those shifts that have ultimately pushed things forward.Donald Glover on Successfully Navigating New MediaImage via FXGlover’s acclaimed FX series, Atlanta, offers a surreal, comedic take on the life of an up-and-coming musician and manager. In the Hollywood Reporter panel, the multitalented, Golden Globe-winning auteur discusses music, growing up online, and producing original content in the early days of YouTube. Glover explains the dynamics of releasing content in today’s world and how to face the reactions you will inevitably receive, for better or for worse.We were like, “Maybe this will get us on television,” not knowing that is television now. How you get to the product is almost more important than the product, nowadays. Because it changes the lens a little bit. If thirty percent of people are like, “This is amazing,” there’s going to be twenty percent that are like, “Well, I have to agree with my friends a little bit.” We release a lot of our stuff on Sundays, because I know bloggers are asleep and people don’t want to talk. People have to think about it for themselves, which doesn’t happen a lot.Issa Rae on Confidence in the Face of CriticismImage via HBOAs was the case with Glover, YouTube played a part in Issa Rae’s early career; she first appeared on the cultural radar with her acclaimed web series, The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl, back in 2011. Now she creates the Golden Globe-nominated Insecure for HBO. When asked about taking criticism at face value, Rae responds:There’s an initial rush, like, “Wow, people really like this. This is crazy. This is great.” And then, “Oh sh*t, now I have to live up to this.” You get really scared and then you feel like the light is on you. And then, when you get your first piece of criticism, that’s kind of a big deal. But for me, it’s actually only helped me creatively, because it makes me uncomfortable, and that’s where I thrive and that’s where I live in the first place.Rae has an excellent sense of what she wants her audience to feel. Her confidence shines through in her work, allowing an audience connection stronger than most contemporary cable series.I like making people relate to people of color and black people specifically. Especially in these times, that’s a cool trait. “I’m from this specific background, and I identify with what you’re going through.” That’s such a powerful tool, to bring people into your world and to bring a sense of understanding. With this show, I wanted to just make black people relatable.Lin-Manuel Miranda on Balancing Passion and OpportunityAbove image via Hamilton: An American MusicalThe genius behind the Broadway mega-hit Hamilton: An American Musical sheds light on the process of putting your work out and hoping it’s received well. The playwright also discusses the importance of taking jobs that initially sound unappealing and his experience moving on to projects like Moana, Marry Poppins and Star Wars after Hamilton’s success.It’s the same as before. The way I think about what I do is, you toe this line between the things that are in you, that you’re burning to make, the idea that won’t leave you alone in the shower or when you’re walking your dog, and the opportunities that come along that I would do anything to be a part of and I’d kick myself if I didn’t do it. We all struggle with that balance. Robert Rodriguez was my big hero when I was in high school. That was my dude. I read [his book] Rebel Without A Crew…Favreau responds with his own story of using Rebel Without A Crew as a guidebook while making Swingers. Miranda then dives into the mentality that comes with live performance and the immediacy of it all.I work in the art form where you’re in the room with the people who are performing, and that’s something you can’t replace. Especially talking about online stuff, I think we curate our reality so much. We block that friend on Facebook who is talking about politics constantly or putting up videos you’re not ready to see at nine in the morning. But in the theater, you’re all watching the same thing.This group of artists is well-acquainted with the immediate online critical reactions that are such a part of creating publicly in today’s world. Their stories and advice are crucial for anybody looking to take a chance on putting their work out there for all to see. They’re also wildly in tune with the importance of music in the creative process.If you’re looking for musical inspiration or a soundtrack for your next project, PremiumBeat’s got you covered. From hip-hop and rap as heard in Glover’s Atlanta to the classical influences of Hamilton, to the stellar R&B running through Insecure and the swinging jazz of La La Land, PremiumBeat’s deep library of songs and genres is an excellent resource for film and video creators. Some of the industry’s top creators weigh in on creativity, music, confidence, dealing with criticism, and finding your voice in a noisy world.Top image via LionsgateBilled as a conversation on creativity, this roundtable from The Hollywood Reporter — featuring Lin-Manuel Miranda, Donald Glover, Issa Rae, and Damien Chazelle — explores how the featured artists find inspiration in music and how music inevitably finds its way into their work. Additionally, and of note to burgeoning content creators, the discussion touches on how resources like YouTube and Vimeo played an important part in launching their careers.Moderated by Jon Favreau, the panel features a diverse selection of artists in different stages of their careers. It’s pretty inspiring stuff, for sure. The entire discussion plays out in the video below, and some standout moments are featured after the clip. Enjoy — and maybe take some notes!last_img read more

J Dey murder case: Mumbai Police question oil mafia kingpin

first_imgThe police, probing the killing of senior crime reporter J Dey, on Thursday questioned an alleged oil mafia kingpin after interrogating and letting off three suspects apparently finding no evidence against them. Police questioned alleged oil kingpin Mohammed Ali in connection with the murder case at a hospital where he was taken from Arthur Road jail. Ali was interrogated by police after the MCOCA court’s permission. Ali and his four aides had been arrested from here while two sharp-shooters from Mughalsarai railway station in Uttar Pradesh in connection with the murder of Sayyed Chand Madar (56), owner of a private firm in south Mumbai, in September last year. Ali and Madar were rivals as both were allegedly involved in smuggling diesel from the high seas. Earlier, the police let off three persons, believed to be associated with Chhota Shakeel, a key aide of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, who were detained on Wednesday in connection with the killing of the scribe. “The suspects, whom we questioned, appeared to have played no role in the crime, as of now,” Joint Police Commissioner (Crime) Himanshu Roy said. Three suspects Anwar, Mateen Iqbal Hatela and Shaikh were picked up for questioning on Wednesday to ascertain their possible role in Dey’s killing. However, they were let off late on Wednesday night after no evidence was found against them, police said.  The police said that during interrogation Mateen had said that Dey might have been killed as he could be working on a story which would have caused trouble to some people. They also told us several other things but that is not matching with the fact after verification. “We questioned Anwar and Mateen to ascertain as to why they were telling us those stories and whether they were trying to mislead us in the probe and if so, why they were doing this,” a police officer said adding that they did not appear to have played any role in the murder and were allowed to go. 56-year-old Jyotirmoy Dey, Editor (Special Investigation), with Mid-Day, who extensively covered the underworld and crime for over two decades, was shot dead by four assailants last Saturday. Meanwhile, police have found three more witnesses in the case and are trying to figure out the sequence of events that led to the killing.advertisement- With PTI inputs For more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.last_img read more

Readying for his return, Gennady Golovkin seeks path back to Canelo Alvarez

first_img“I don’t feel like I lost those fights and those decisions do not necessarily affect me because inside I do feel like I won those two fights,” Golovkin said through an interpreter. “So I don’t necessarily see myself as a contender, as a beginner again.”Golovkin (38-1-1, 34 KOs) may get his shot at being a real champion again soon, perhaps even against Alvarez.First, Golovkin will return to the ring against Steve Rolls, a little known Canadian who is unbeaten in 19 fights while fighting at both 160 and 168 pounds.They will split the difference for the June bout, which will be held at a maximum of 164 pounds. Rolls (19-0, 10 KOs) was selected in hopes he could put up a good enough performance to make Golovkin work, but not good enough to mess up any plans for a third fight with Alvarez.“Make no mistake. This isn’t a tuneup,” Rolls said. “I’m coming to fight.”ADVERTISEMENT DA eyes importing ‘galunggong’ anew LATEST STORIES MOST READ FILE – In this Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2018, file photo, Gennady Golovkin acknowledges the crowd during a boxing news conference in Las Vegas. Golovkin is set to return to the ring when he meets Steve Rolls on June 8, 2019, at Madison Square Garden. (AP Photo/John Locher, File)NEW YORK — The giant banner behind him revealed not only a new nickname, but a new reality in boxing for Gennady Golovkin.“The return of the people’s champion,” it read, touting Golovkin’s June 8 match at Madison Square Garden that will be his first fight since dropping his rematch against Canelo Alvarez.ADVERTISEMENT Cayetano: Senate, Drilon to be blamed for SEA Games mess Back to square one Hontiveros presses for security audit of national power grid SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte Golovkin came away from those fights with a loss and a draw, and the former holder of three belts has no more after a record 20 consecutive middleweight title defenses.“Everyone in the Triple G team thinks he won both of those fights, as does the majority of the fan base and the media, and that’s why we crowned him the ‘People’s Champion,’” promoter Tom Loeffler said Monday.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logisticsThe people may still consider Golovkin a champion, but the boxing rankings have said otherwise since the longtime 160-pound ruler’s loss to Alvarez last September in their second fight.Plenty has changed since that narrow defeat in Las Vegas, though not when it comes to Golovkin’s mindset. Some may wonder if he’s diminished at 37 after two hard fights with Alvarez, but not Golovkin. He won’t be carrying any belts into the ring but he still has a champion’s confidence.center_img PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games PLAY LIST 02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. The path back to Alvarez goes through DAZN, the sports streaming service that had signed the Mexican star to a contract worth what his promoters said was a minimum $365 million last year. So Golovkin eventually followed with a six-fight deal with DAZN, and already had begun talking about terms of a possible trilogy before signing.DAZN will have as much to do with the negotiations as the fight promoters, and the Golovkin side will be interested in taking it elsewhere after it was dissatisfied with the scoring in Las Vegas. That could open the door for Madison Square Garden or AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys, to make a big bid on the bout.“The first two fights with Canelo, there was no option for Gennady. They put it to us that Canelo would fight Triple G only in Las Vegas,” Loeffler said. “We love Las Vegas, we love the MGM, the T-Mobile Arena and the way he was treated, but when you arguably win two fights in a row and only one judge out of six judges scores it for him, there’s something wrong.”Alvarez is facing Daniel Jacobs in a May 4 middleweight unification fight in Las Vegas.If Alvarez wins, Golovkin could hope to win his belts back if they then move on to making the third fight. If it’s Jacobs, Golovkin may want to go ahead with a fight that would mean more to him even with no titles at stake.He’s already been a champion. He hasn’t beaten Alvarez.“I’m hoping to fight him,” Golovkin said, “title or not.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Panelo: Duterte ‘angry’ with SEA Games hosting hassles Ethel Booba twits Mocha over 2 toilets in one cubicle at SEA Games venue Philippine Arena Interchange inaugurated View commentslast_img read more
