  1. Integrated System for Surface Pasteurization of Food

    SBC: Alkar-RapidPak, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Ready-to-eat meat or poultry products that undergo further handling after cooking (e.g. peeling or slicing) show the highest prevalence of Listeria monocytogenes (one to ten percent). Though rare, listeriosis is responsible for 20 to 30 percent of foodborne disease-related deaths. Therefore, the industry has adopted, among other methods, post-packaging pasteurization to control Listeria monocytoge ...

  3. Interactive CD Guide for Food-Borne Fungal Identification

    SBC: BCN Research Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Filamentous microfungi (often colloquially known as "molds") are a major cause of food wastage throughout the world, accounting for the loss of about 10% of all food production. Although good textbooks on food mycology are available, a clear need exists for simpler and more visual identification systems. Because of ease of manufacture and use, interactive potential and ability to display color pic ...

  4. Testing the Efficacy of a Novel Lameness Detection System in Commercial Dairy Herds

    SBC: Bou-Matic            Topic: N/A

    Lameness is the third most costly problem to the US dairy industry with annual losses of at least $500 million, affecting over 15% of US dairy cattle. In addition, lameness is a critical animal well-being issue. The inability to routinely and objectively diagnose lameness, results in ineffective interventions and has become a compelling reason for developing a novel device that automatically detec ...

  5. Commercially Viable Out-of-Season Spawning Technologies to Improve Yellow Perch Fingerling Production

    SBC: Coolwater Aquaculture, LLC            Topic: N/A

    An important aquaculture industry is developing in the Great Lakes region for yellow perch (Perca flavescens). The primary problem constraining the expansion of this industry is the high cost of fingerlings, which represents 35% of total operating costs for growout producers. Yellow perch normally spawn only once each year and fingerling ponds are only used for 6-8 weeks in the spring to produce o ...

  6. Detection of Termites Using Distributed Wireless Monitoring

    SBC: Hatchpoint, LLC            Topic: N/A

    While termites inflict almost $4 Billion dollars in damage per year in the United States, termite control still depends upon labor intensive and expensive manual monitoring techniques. This project will determine the feasibility of deploying acoustic sensor arrays that will alert a Pest Management Professional (PMP) of termite activity.

  7. Cost Effective and Reliable Anaerobic Digestion for Agricultural By-products

    SBC: HANSEN ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The current problem with on farm anaerobic digesters is the high failure rate. Some failures are do to plugging because of the viscous and heterogeneous nature of agricultural animal waste. Other digesters have been abandoned because the management of the digester was too difficult or required to much time. The purpose of this project is to develop a novel method along with the machinery capable f ...

  8. Broadband Telecommunications for Rural America

    SBC: Hiercomm Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Many rural areas and related small communities are on the lower side of a digital divide that separates areas with and without the telecommunications infrastructure necessary to compete in today's global economy. This project will deploy a partial broadband wireless network in Rusk County, Wisconsin to demonstrate the efficacy of such a system in a low density, low income county in Northern Wiscon ...

  9. Advanced Telemedical Rural Health Care Delivery System

    SBC: Hiercomm Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Hospitals and health care services in rural counties experience difficulties providing the same level of health care as those located in metropolitan areas. This project develops a telemedical management system for pre-hospital emergency medical services and home health care in rural areas.

  10. Dietary L-Thyroxine to Induce Molt Without Feed Withdrawal in Laying Chicken, Broiler Breeder, and Turkey Breeder Hens to Extend Production

    SBC: Hooge Consulting Service            Topic: N/A

    Molting (reproductive rejuvenation) of poultry to extend table or fertile egg production is a well accepted commercial practice in the U.S. However, the conventional method of ~10-day feed withdrawal to induce molt is increasingly viewed as unacceptable by McDonald's, Wendy's, AVMA, and the egg consuming public. The use of dietary L-thyroxine (T4; the natural molting hormone) for poultry can provi ...
