Abstract

During past periods of cheap fossil fuels and abundant agricultural production, farmers and society in general displayed limited interest in energy costs and in crop and livestock production residuals. The events of the 1970's, including rising energy prices, restricted energy supplies, and growing awareness of the Impact of confined livestock feeding on world food supplies, have given rise to interest in new and old technologies that con serve energy use in agriculture and to the need for adjustments in current agricultural production practices.
