Feeding Management to Reduce the Environmental Impact of Dairy Farms
By Robert E. James, Department of Dairy Science, and Beverly Cox, Virginia Cooperative Extension. Published in the University of Florida IFAS, 45th Dairy Conference Production proceedings. Probably no region of the U.S. has experienced greater attention to impact of agriculture on our environment than Florida.
Dairy: World Markets and Trade - July 2008

Updating Phosphorus Supplementation in Ruminants to Meet the Animal’s Requirement, Reduce Excess Cost, and Reduce Environmental Concerns
By Francis L. Fluharty, Ph.D., Department of Animal Sciences, Ohio State University. Phosphorus has been called the "master mineral" because it is involved in most metabolic pathways, is a key component of Adenosine 5'-triphosphate (ATP) which transports chemical energy within cells for energy metabolism, and it is a component of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA).
