New stools for the Milking Lab were ordered and need to be hauled to the lab. There is also a book shelf in Rm 125 that needs to go to the Milking Lab (located in the cubicle next to Jeff's office and is labeled). A truck with a lift gate and a pallet jack are needed. This is needed for the Spring Semester.

We are interested in having BSE produce 48 soil incubation chambers as previously discussed with Kody Habeck. The requested internal dimensions of these chambers is 20 cm wide, by 20 cm deep, by 30 cm tall. Each chamber would include 2 walls with removable side panels that may be swapped out with instrumented side panels as necessary. These panels will need to be secure and both gas and water tight through the use of a gasket system. The proposed dimensions for these panels is 15 cm wide by 20 cm tall, located in the center of 2 opposing walls in each box (thus 96 panels total).
These chambers need to be able to be sealed to water and gas tightness, transparent, and to resist multiple short (~20 min) exposures to autoclave temperatures (121°C). The top of these containers will need to be both gas-tight and removable, likely by employing a latch and gasket system (similar to the attached file) and contain 2, 1/8-inch diameter circular ports through which gas inlet and outlet lines may be run.
Each chamber would also contain a permeable steel false bottom located 5cm above the true bottom of each container, which would allow water to drain from the soil chamber. The bottom seal would then be accomplished by placing each chamber into a silicone mat with a small lip corresponding to the footprint of the chamber.
The lids of the box should be constructed to allow a gas-tight seal, containing a latch and gasket system (see attached image for example).
The preferred material for these chambers is ¼ inch thick polycarbonate – we are aware that over time polycarbonate may yellow with UV exposure and cannot be continuously autoclaved, but we are confident that this material will have a multi-year lifetime under the proposed operating condition (5-10 autoclavings).
Currently, there are no materials for this project on hand, anything needed would need to be ordered. We are open to suggestions on modifications to these chambers to make production as easy as possible.

Design and fabrication of this scale platform is needed.
6' x 4' platform able to weigh silage carts (like a wheelbarrow). At least one side would need a ramp. I have four load cells from a small feed mixer that would be used for this project. The scale head is not purchased, but it would only need to Zero, Tare, and change units if possible. This scale will be near outlets so a plug in scale head will be sufficient. The platform will need to be heavy duty for farm purposes.

Description: Using the hatch tray, divider, lid, and sectioned chicken wire lid to work from, devise a more sturdy separated lid or separated lid and tray combination. We need 3 of these. The chicks need to remain in separate sections of the hatching tray until they are banded. They want to jump and try to get into other sections. With the single lid, it is very difficult to keep the sections separate when trying to remove the chicks. With the chickenwire homemade solution, it is rather flimsy, very scratchy, and not quite perfect, as the chicks can still escape to other sections based on the flimsiness of the lid, but in combination with the structured lid, we have been able to make it work. We are looking for a more elegant solution.

3 X Automatic Static chamber for measure GHG soil flux
Basically an SS cube (12 x 12 x 8 inches) with opened bottom and top, bottom is inserted in the soil. When measuring a linear actuator pushes a HDPE lid to seal the chamber (magnetic gasket ). In addition to the SS chamber box a simple steel structure is needed to carry the linear actuator and the opening and closing mechanism. We build one already, see pictures and drawings for better understanding.

All materials will be provided, we have most of them already on hand.

Phase 1 - mount 4 vacuum controllers on Mi4
Phase 1.2 - program 4 channel vacuum control into Mi4 operations Labview program
Phase 2 - add second pulsator to pulsator vacuum line, mount new positive pressure pulsation air line, fit each of these airlines with vacuum controllers.
Phase 2.2 Modify Mi4 Labview operations to control pulsation vacuum and pressure lines. Note This will require additional analog output card as current card has 4 outputs and this will require and addition 2 outputs.
Phase 3: lab test/commissioning of device (water)
Phase 4: barn test/commissioning of device (cows)

This request is for the Department of Agronomy Field Corn Breeding and Genetics Program. The request is help design and manufacture seed plates for a preexisting corn planter that is able to plant corn seed at predetermined spacing within a 20' length. The seed disk would be required to fit two corn planter row units that we would provide. The seed disk material would be left to the designer for best use and need to be purchased. The seed disc would be approximately 1/2" in thickness and 12" in diameter and have holes or slots at predetermined intervals around the circumference. There also may need to be planter modifications to have the seed plates start at an indexed location at the front of each row.

Create work boards for lab handouts. In the Milking Lab there are 2 24x48 sheets of MDF (my name is on them). Cut the sheet in half on the 24" side and cut the 48" length into 9.5" pieces. Will make 10 boards 9.5" x 12". Round corners as needed. Place under the front tall table in the teaching area (there are some board there already- these will replenish the supply). This would be a good rainy-day project. Don't need until classes start this fall.

I am in the process of setting up a soil leaching experiment in our lab and Becky has requested that I ask you if you would be able to and willing to build a stand to hold all the columns.
The stand (or stands doesn’t have to be just one) needs to be able to sit on a table top and hold 36 columns. The columns are 1.5 inch PVC pipe cut to a length of 2 feet that are filled with soil and have a screen filter that is attached with a hose clamp at the bottom. The stand needs to be able to accommodate the placement of collection container underneath each columns. The containers are roughly a 5 inch diameter and are 5 inches tall. The stand needs to allow us to easily take individual columns out of the stand for other analysis. We do not care what the stand is made of, whatever is cheapest works for us.
I know it is fairly simple thing to build, but Becky wants me focusing on other things right now. I was originally thinking of building a stand built with 2x4’s that the columns can be placed through by using a hole saw, then using a bolt on each side of the 2x4 that can screw in tight to the column to hold it in place (kind of like a Christmas tree stand). But you may have much better ideas than I do. Let me know if this is something you can and what the time frame for building it might be, if it will take longer than a week or two we may decide to have our undergrads work on it instead of their other tasks.
