This publication has a companion movie. It shows you how to conduct a jar test. A jar test simulates what occurs in a tank mixture and will provide evidence of physical incompatibilities, such as separation, settling, inversions, and oil residue buildup. You should always conduct a jar test before mixing, especially if you are tank mixing products that you have not used before. You can find this move at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YSjMvO2Y7Y

A Purdue Pesticide Programs has released a new publication titled “Understanding the Horse Trailer Rig: Steps for Transporting Horses Safely on the Highway” (PPP-114).

It provides examples of maintenance issues you need address as part of “the rig.” While we emphasize safely transporting horses in trailers, the same principles hold true for transporting other livestock.
