  1. An Optical Sensor for Monitoring Odors at Agricultural Livestock Facilities

    SBC: AeroSurvey, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1998 Department of Agriculture
  2. Development of a Natural Multiporous Cellulose Fiber for Industrial Applications

    SBC: AgResearch International, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

  3. Sorting Feedlot Cattle for Metabolism and Growth by Infrared Thermal Imaging

    SBC: Katalyst, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Variation in growth performance and health of feedlot cattle leads to large differences in weigh or degree of finish at the point of harvest. Carcass quality losses alone cost the industry $3.5 billion annually. Traditional management practices of sorting cattle by weight and physical characteristics to minimize variation fail to take into consideration individual feed intake and metabolic rate as ...

  4. Non-Corrosive Propionate Based Road Deicer

    SBC: Katalyst, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A novel fermentation process and extraction system are proposed to produce a biodegradable, non- corrosive deicer from biomass wastes and crops containing sugars and starches. Sodium and calcium chlorides now extensively used in road deicing cause corrosion damage to automobiles, bridges, and highway infrastructure. Further, significant environmental damage occurs from accumulation of these salts ...

  5. GPS-Based Animal Control System

    SBC: AgriTech Electronics, L.C.            Topic: N/A

    This is a Phase II proposal to continue the work begun by AgriTech Electronics, LC (AgriTech) on a GPS-based livestock control system. This system will exclude animals from areas, or contain them within defined boundaries, where it is impractical or inefficient to build fence to achieve this objective. These needs arise in a variety of contexts, including the exclusion of livestock from riparian a ...

  6. Plastics Recycling: Using Agricultural Residues to Improve Performance

    SBC: Agro-Plastics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Agro-Plastics, Inc. has successfully developed and is commercializing a process that uses agricultural fibers as fillers in virgin plastics. The Agro-Plastic manufacturing plants are designed for small communities, providing employment and non-farm revenues at a time when small rural communities are struggling with depressed crop prices and loss of manufacturing jobs. As a natural extension of thi ...

  7. Method for Control of Biting Midges Using Odor-Baited Traps

    SBC: American Biophysics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a method of trapping biting midges including Culicoides. Biting midges are economically important insect pests. Their presence in large numbers can have a detrimental impact on land development and tourism. In addition, these insects are the vector of bluetongue, an arbovirus which is transmitted in cattle and sheep during repeated blood-feeding by biting flies. Our approach ...

  9. Novel Cost-effective Production of High Quality Papers

    SBC: BIOPULPING INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Mechanical pulping accounts for about 25% of the wood pulp production in the world today. This volume is expected to increase in the future. Mechanical pulping, with its high yield, is viewed as a way to extend these resources. However, mechanical pulping is electrical energy-intensive (a mill processing 300 tons of pulp/day spends about $10 million in electricity cost) and yields paper with less ...
