The concept of the Nurturite product line revolves around using emulsified silicone to treat forages. The goal with First Response is to allow the user greater tolerance to moisture; it’s used at the baler and can be applied as a replacement for prop acid, allowing users to bale hay at higher moistures without dealing with the typical issues they would have with mold and heating (see photos in ad below). The treated cost per ton is lower than prop acid on high moisture hay and the product is not corrosive and will not negatively affect the flavor or smell of the hay. Read more

New Horizons Earth-Friendly Way to Heat

New Horizon Inc. announces a new extended line of Wood Gasification Boilers, providing a safe and environmentally friendly way to heat your home and domestic hot water with wood and other biomass byproducts. The boiler uses wood gasification combustion (with a secondary combustion process), giving you a high overall heating efficiency.

Attack DPX boilers utilize wood (biomass) in the burning process, which uses the energy contained in the wood at up to two times more efficient than traditional boilers or wood stoves. In layman’s terms, it releases wood gas, also known as syngas or producer gas, from biomass (25% hydrogen, 19 % carbon monoxide, and a mixture of hydrocarbons and alcohols) and re-burns it in a secondary combustion process. Smoke and other emissions are cut to a low level, due to high temperature of secondary combustion, making our boilers nature-friendly. Read more

Boondoggle: Fixing the 2012 Farm Bill

When Congress returns from its August recess, one of the first items it will take up is the 2012 farm bill, which proposes to spend almost $ 1 trillion over the next decade.

Today AEI is launching, a one-stop shop for AEI research on the farm bill. Bringing together research papers, interactive maps, and a new two-minute video, the site explains why reform is necessary and charts a comprehensive path forward. Read more
