...1. Is feed an opportunity? Based on this case, I think feed is an opportunity. First of all, when Shane worked in Laurence Candle Company, he found out that “ new brand of customer was willing to pay a premium for environmentally friendly products” (Bygrave & Zacharakis, 2010). Secondly, clean technologies, especially around combating global warming became an explosive upward investment trend. One reason is large price increases in gas and other fossil fuels. The other one is the raised awareness of global warming by prominent figures. Furthermore, this crisis of global warming also bring new opportunities for new jobs and new profits, building clean engines, harness the sun and the wind, stopping wasting energy, and using our planet’s plentiful coal resources without heating the planet. More precious thing is “ the climate crisis also offer us the chance to experience what very few generations in history have had the privilege of knowing a lot of things according to Bygrave & Zacharakis (2010). More and more customers and public are expecting companies to be more eco-friendly which makes it a big opportunity. On the other hand, “ with the wealth of interest by angel inventors and venture capitalists alike, many new companies have hit the ground running and have found success” (Bygrave & Zacharakis, 2010). Except those environment reasons, here hits the FEED in details. FEED combine composting technology and waste conversion technology together, which raw......

Concentrate Feed Stuffs

...CONCENTRATE FEED STUFFS Concentrate feeds are feed that are high in nutrients but low in fibre. a. CARBONATIOUS CONCENTRATES: These are high energy feeds, mostly grains and its by-products. According to Natural Research Council (NRC), these are feed products containing less than 18% fibre. Below are some of their examples: i. MAIZE (CORN): this is the most popular and widely fed grain in the world.it is high in enegy about 18% Total Digestible Nitrogen (TDN), high in phosphorus and calcium, high in thymine, high in lysine but in bound form in pigs, low in protein (white maize 8-9%, yellow maize 11-12%), low in Vitamin D, Riboflavin and pantothenic acid. ii. SORGHUM GRAIN: For maximum digestibility, it should be ground into particles (not powder). It contains high amount of energy, about (75-80% TDN), high protein, about (8-12%), low in carotene, low in calcium and fair in phosphorus. iii. WHEAT GRAINS: this contain high energy about (80% TDN), and (12-14%) crude protein. b. PROTEINATIOUS CONCENTRATES: This could be of plant or animal origin, and the quality and content is highly determined by its processing. Supplements of plant origin are mainly oil seed meals. The manufacturing process of oil seed meal could be ‘’expeller’’ or ‘’hydrolic’’.

...n the past several years, Jones Electrical Distribution is profitable, but it is in the condition of cash shortage. With its 2007’s sales go up, Jones need borrow more money to help its rapid development. Then he got a maximum line of credit $350,000. With our analysis report, we help Jones to choose whether to take advantage of 2% trade discount, we can observe that Jones’credit line will be $318,000 without discount, not $387,000 with this 2% discount. Problems Statement Jones Electrical Distribution’s current condition is not only cash shortage but also under rapid sales grows’ effect. Why this profitable firm needs to increase its borrowing, what kinds of strategies Jones Electrical Distribution will choose, and what his estimate of the loan needs is. These are the problems we will talk about bellows. Data Analysis 1. According to the balance sheet and sources and uses statements (appendix 1), we can see that the line of credit payable increases every year, because Jones needs more and more funds to support the needs of working capital and invest to long-lived assets such as plant, property and equipment to support higher sales levels. We can see that Jones used its profits (changed in Net Worth), cash and short-term debt to support the needs of working capital and the increase of inventory (probably to support higher sales levels). The reduction in long-term debt is a use of funds because Jones is repaying a loan. The decrease of cash is a source of funds to......

Seed Germination

...Introduction Seed germination is a process in which the plant’s embryo developed from the seed and forms seedling (Bello, Hatterman-Valenti & Owen, 2000). The process of germination starts with imbibition which is the uptake of water by the dry, followed by the activation of enzyme and ends with the elongation of the radicle. The imbibition stage is a crucial process as it is the first event that moves the seed from a dry, quiescent, dormant organism to the resumption of embryo growth (Bewley, 1997).The breaking of the quiescent and subsequent germination depends on the sufficiency of oxygen, proper amount of water and suitable temperature (Parker, 2000). The penetration of water to the seed coat causes the hard and dry tissues inside to soften. This speeds up the seed metabolism, allowing the water to move quicker as the seed coat splits open. Once the seed are imbibed, the action of enzyme (amylase) takes place (Fenner & Thompson, 2005). It begins during the lag phase of water uptake. The role of enzyme in seed germination is to mobilize nutrients to the growing region of the embryo. Germination of seed is considered complete upon the emergence of radicles from the seed (Copeland, 1999). Germination only occurs when the seed plant is exposed to a favorable condition. The factors affecting the germination of seeds include oxygen, water availability and temperature. Other factors include hormones, the depth at which the seed was planted and light. In this......

Tristar Feed

...1. Why is the plant’s production load imbalanced? What countermeasures can be taken? The plant’s imbalance is mainly due to the demand of the market of Tri Star Feeds products. The sudden change of product mix and volume forecasts at the beginning and middle of the month, plus the fact that the dealers always give the bulk of their orders in the second half of the month gives a lot of challenge to the Plant’s Production/Capacity Planning. Since the nature of their ingredients, animal feeds have a limited shelf life, which is estimated to be a maximum of four weeks after production. Maintaining large inventories of finished goods is risky. There are lots of countermeasure strategies that can be done in Tri Star Feeds; one of them is to increase productivity of the plant in order to meet peak demand. However, increasing the productivity level would incur a large amount of investment for the company, wherein most cases, companies tend to avoid incurring a huge investment cost if there are still other methods which are more cost efficient. Also investing in an additional plant might not be the best option since the Plant Capacity Utilization is only peak during the third and fourth of the month. During the first and second half of the month, Plant Capacity utilization can’t even reach half of its potential capacity. Another countermeasure that they can do is to build up a finished goods inventory in the first half of the month in preparation for the large demand in the......

Feed - Essay

...‘Feed’ by M.T. Anderson depicts a modernised future, where basic social value and attitudes seem to be crumbling under the changes that technology brings about. The text challenges out social perception of a trans-humanistic utopia, as it explores ideas such as isolation, over-dependance of technology and deterioration of humane common sense, maturity and intelligence. ‘Feed’ illustrates a satirical representation of modern youth, delves into the reality of evolving technology and darkens the lines that separate Isolation is a theme that the text subtly presents through the use of first person point of view. The author conveys the protagonist’s views on his friends and the world around him as disconnected and disinteresting, *QUOTE*, he is often left questioning many aspects of his social relationships. “I get lonely at party’s, but its worse when I leave. The feed tells me this is the music you heard, this is the music you missed”. This highlights the ‘mental invasion’ of technology as it examines and probes his insecurities. The use of 1st POV helps to add a degree of psychological depth to the story’s robotic atmosphere, which helps to reinforce the ideas of isolation and disconnection as well as Titus’s mental anguish. ‘Feed’ also explores ‘trans-humanism’ and the over-reliance that society has on modern technology. These ideas illustrate the negative affects of evolving technologically on a societal level.The author conveys over-dependence on technology leads to......

Seed in Bangladesh

... Seed is an important vehicle for technological innovations. And good seed is one of the first and foremost prerequisites for a healthy and vigorous crop. However, seed is more than an agricultural input and a source of new technologies. A range of developmental, socio-economic, environmental and political issues are also covered by seed: food security, natural resource management, agro biodiversity, intellectual property rights, social dynamics, gender, cultural and religious dimensions, policies and regulations. And seed technology is the total of all the systematic activities necessary for production and supply of quality seeds in the crop culture of a country. These systematic activities are: multiplication, processing and preservation, quality assurance, marketing and finally ensuring the use of seed by farmers. The sequential approach in ensuring the use of quality seed has been undertaken in mid seventies and the quantity of seeds supplied by following the seed technological activities is only 6% of the total requirement. Rest of the seed used in the country is almost of unknown quality. Researches undertaken in these areas are inadequate and fragmentary. History of Seed System Development Traditionally, farmers keep a part of their produce as seed and use it for subsequent crop production. They also collect seed from their neighbors’ when necessary. Seeds were also sold in village markets. Seed traders were......
