Grazing Management : Infographic

Grazing is the method by which livestock consumes forage. When animals eat forage, they receive energy and nutrients. Grazing management is the way farmers, or ranchers, manipulate where their animals graze. If farmers use a quality grazing management system, they are able to promote rapid regrowth of forage in grazing season which helps reduce feed costs. When land is properly grazed, there is a balance between livestock demand and forage availability. Grazing management systems promote long-term pasture health. There are many ways to graze your land including controlled grazing, rotational grazing, strip grazing, and continuous grazing.

The Best Aquaponics Fish Species To Eat

There are a variety of freshwater fish that you can stock in your Aquaponics holding tanks. Before choosing the correct fish for your system, we suggest that you research which types of fish are best suited to the weather, temperature, and general conditions of your location. Some other things to consider: Fish do not develop or grow identically. Some fish grow faster than others, and some are better suited for living in a closed-tank environment. Some freshwater fish do not reproduce in holding tanks at all. If you select those fish, you will have to buy additional fingerlings after a harvest in order to begin the cycle again. Just as regions are zoned for gardening, different regions will be more successful in growing specific species. Choose fish that easily adapt to artificial feeding....

Survival Skill: How To Hot Wire A Car

Today, we’ve written an article for educational and legal purposes only. Perhaps you’ve lost your keys and you need to get your car going in an emergency situation. We don’t promote the use of anything we teach on Doomsday News for illegal purposes. Ok, so that’s enough of the formalities. Let’s get started. Before you remove the ignition cover, try using a screwdriver in the ignition. This may work really well depending on the car and prevent you from having to remove the ignition cover. However if this doesn’t work, you can use the screwdriver to hot wire the car. 1. Carefully remove the steering case &  ignition cover until the cylinder and wires are exposed.Be careful because you could shock yourself. Also, you will want to be able to close it so you can use it later. 2.Determine w...

Self Sufficiency In The Modern World

Off grid, offline or even off the net, call it what you will, complete self-sufficiency is difficult in today’s world. Some may even believe they are totally off grid right now but may not be. You may say you have a solar, hydro or wind turbine system in place, but these systems will require maintenance and unless you have stockpiled any replaceable parts and can service the systems yourself then you will need a qualified service technician. There will be things you need from manufacturers that supply materials and supplies to the local store, things you cannot produce or make yourself. If the country collapsed tomorrow, you would have to barter for items you need, so this notion of never needing or trying to reach the point where you never need anyone for anything is just not realistic. B...

The Ultimate Where To Start Prepping Guide

What would you do, right this very second, if a disaster struck? Let’s say it’s something that took the power out for a few days. Would you be able to keep your family safe and comfortable? If not, do you recognize the importance of increasing your preparations until you can meet a crisis head on? Many people like to turn up their noses at those “crazy preppers” but if they were to stop and really think about it, they’d realize that being prepared for those events that occur without warning is just good old-fashioned common sense. Unfortunately, media portrayals of preparedness like to show the most extreme examples of the lifestyle. Shows like Doomsday Preppers are populated with people who are, quite literally, preparing for the end of the world. (Keep in mind that the people on these sh...

Apple Varieties Around the World

How many types of apples are there? Experts suggest that more than 7,500 varieties of apple exist, with many of them being cultivars, or varieties created from selective breeding by humans. In the United States alone, there are 2,500 different types of apples. List off what you’ll usually see at the grocery store and you’ll notice how only a few apple varieties show up again and again, and many of these are often shipped from overseas. Granny Smith and Mutsu are your typical green apples. Types of red apples usually include the fairly bland Red Delicious. But the flavor profiles of ancient, ugly, and rare apples typically are the tartest, sweetest, and tastiest! Use our apple varieties list to discover what types of apples are tart, what kinds of apples are good for baking, what kinds of a...

Every detail that you can give them is important and could be the piece that leads to your rescue should you become lost, injured or incapacitated in the wild. 2. Carry a Handkerchief This simple...
