The farming which is performed on a large scale, with the help of machines like threshers, harvesters, tractors etc. is called commercial farming.
Extensive commercial farming started with the advent of green revolution. With the use of this farming pattern the world cereal production rose by 50 percent between 1970 to 1990.
Most dairy farms operate in the same manner. In other words they have similar methods of management to many other dairy farms. However most management types depends on where each dairy farm is located, and what country they reside in. But basically, here are the BASIC methods that every dairy farm should be carring through: Dairy cows need high quality forage, so fields of corn, wheat, barley and/or legumes are grown and harvested for silage. Silage is often stored in tall towers for easier access and minimal spoilage. Any grain that is harvested is sometimes sold as an alternative cash crop for extra income, but most is used in the cows' diets. Straw is baled up for bedding. Some dairy farmers prefer woodchips to straw because of the ability of woodchips to soak up moisture better than straw. Cows are milked twice a day, morning and evening. Types of milking parlours differ from farm to farm but all serve the same function. Dairy cows are left in the barn during their lactating periods to decrease incidence of injury to udders and hence mastitis. Dry and calving cows are separated into different groups and housed in different areas on the farm; dry cows are allowed to be in the corral in winter or on pasture in the summer; calving cows are restricted to the calving area for better ability to keep watch on them. Calves are separated from their dams after the fist two days after birth and bottlefed. Bull calves are castrated and are sent to one of two places; the butcher shop as veal, or to a farm that grows them for beef. Some heifers are kept as replacements, and others are sold to the meat market, to feeder operations or to individual buyers wishing to raise some bottle calves. Very few bulls are kept back and are kept for very long as they get very dangerous as they get older. Bulls are primarily put with heifers for a few months before being sold off to be turned into beef. Older cows are artificially inseminated. And so the cycle continues.
Answer A US bushel is a measure of dry volume and equals approximately 31 litres, or 8 dry gallons. An Imperial bushel equals approximately 36 litres, or 8 Imperial gallons. A peck is also a measure of dry volume and equals 8 dry quarts in both the US and Imperial systems. There are 4 pecks in a bushel.
