Title: The Carrington Irrigation Station's Livestock Unit-A "Cow Heaven"
Author: Lilja, B.K.
Description: The author cited how 'confinement' of cattle had garnered a bad name with some. The author sets out to prove otherwise with quotes from those involved by this practice and supplements it with his own facts. In confinement production systems, cattle are housed in pens, rather than inside barns or out on pastures. The confinement system allows for the close monitoring and control of the livestock's feed, breeding, health and weaning. Drylot is brought up as being an avenue to further fine tune the efficiency of this method of raising cattle. Drylot utilizes a farmer's available labor and his otherwise unmarketable crop residues. Fed for the confined livestock is harvested off cropland.
