Rates of colonization with livestock-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) sequence type 398 have been high for pigs and pig farmers in Canada, but prevalence rates for the general human population are unknown. In this study, 5 LA-MRSA isolates, 4 of which were obtained from skin and soft tissue infections, were identified from 3,687 tested MRSA isolates from persons in Manitoba and Saskatchewan, Canada. Further molecular characterization determined that these isolates all contained staphylococcal cassette chromosome (SCC) mecV, were negative for Panton-Valentine leukocidin, and were closely related by macrorestriction analysis with the restriction enzyme Cfr91. The complete DNA sequence of the SCCmec region from the isolate showed a novel subtype of SCCmecV harboring clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats and associated genes. Although prevalence of livestock-associated MRSA seems to be low for the general population in Canada, recent emergence of infections
In the past decade, livestock-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (LA-MRSA) strains in particular of the clonal complex (CC) 398 have emerged in many parts of the world especially in areas with a high density of pig farming. In those regions, farmworkers and other individuals with professional contact to livestock are very frequently colonized with LA-MRSA. These persons are the presumably source for LA-MRSA transmission to household members and other parts of the human population. Altogether, colonization and/or infection of these individuals lead to the introduction of LA-MRSA into hospitals and other healthcare facilities. Since LA-MRSA CC398 have been found to be specifically adapted to their animal hosts in terms of the equipment with virulence factors, their pathogenicity to human patients is a matter of debate with first reports about clinical cases. Meanwhile, case reports, case series and few studies have demonstrated the capability of LA-MRSA to cause all types of ...
Recent publications have raised concerns of reduced susceptibilities of clinical bacterial isolates towards biocides. This study presents a comparative investigation of the susceptibility of livestock-associated Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (LA-MRSA), hospital-acquired MRSA (HA-MRSA) and community-aquired MRSA (CA-MRSA) to the commonly used antiseptics chlorhexidine (CHX), octenidine (OCT), polyhexanide (PHMB), PVP-iodine (PVP-I) and triclosan (TCX) based on internationally accepted standards. In total, 28 (18 LA-, 5 HA- and 5 CA) genetically characterized MRSA strains representing a broad spectrum of hosts, clonal complexes and spa-types, as well as the reference methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA) strain ATCC 6538, were selected. Minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) and minimal microbicidal concentration (MBC) were determined in accordance with DIN 58940-7, 58940-8 and DIN EN ISO 20776-1. The microbicidal efficacy was determined in accordance with DIN EN 1040. Results

[Open access]In recent years, livestock-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (LA-MRSA) multi locus sequence type CC398 has spread widely in the livestock production in Europe. The rates of LA-MRSA in hospitals have been found to be largely determined by contact to and density of livestock in the area
The farming community can be a vehicle for introduction of livestock-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (LA-MRSA) in hospitals. During 2011-2013, an 18-month longitudinal study aimed at reducing the prevalence of LA-MRSA was conducted on 36 pig farms in the Netherlands. Evaluations every 6 months showed a slight decrease in MRSA prevalence in animals and a stable prevalence in farmers and family members. Antimicrobial use, expressed as defined daily dosages per animal per year, decreased 44% during the study period and was associated with declining MRSA prevalence in pigs. MRSA carriage in animals was substantially higher at farms using cephalosporins. Antimicrobial use remained strongly associated with LA-MRSA in humans regardless of the level of animal contact. A risk factor analysis outlined potential future interventions for LA-MRSA control. These results should encourage animal and public health authorities to maintain their efforts in reducing antimicrobial use in ...

Originally published by CIDRAP News May 31. Livestock-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (LA-MRSA) appears to be spreading further into the community and healthcare settings in Denmark, researchers reported yesterday in Clinical Infectious Diseases.. In the study, researchers evaluated data on all Danish patients who were registered as having had an episode of MRSA bloodstream infection (BSI) or skin and soft tissue infection (SSTI) from 2010 through 2015. Using molecular sequencing tests, they set out to determine how many were caused by LA-MRSA clonal complex 398 (CC398), which has been causing an increasing number of human infections in Denmark and other European countries with industrial pig production. While SSTIs caused by LA-MRSA CC398 have been studied and are mainly associated with livestock workers, less is known about the strains impact on BSIs.. The researchers also wanted to compare LA-MRSA CC398 BSI cases to SSTI cases caused by the strain and to BSI cases ...
Pastoralists living in the rural study villages near Ruaha National Park face challenges common to pastoralists in other regions of sub-Saharan Africa, including lack of livestock health services, pasture and water scarcity, and limited access to livestock markets (e.g. Lybbert et al. 2004; Mosalagae and Magotsi 2013). Livestock disease was identified as a limiting factor to pastoralist livestock production and herd sustainability at multiple stakeholder levels, but some disease priorities differ among pastoralists, government extension officers, and veterinary officials responsible for disease surveillance and services at broader geographic levels. The combination of disease and decreased access to pasture and water resources represents a significant threat to the pastoralist system in the Ruaha landscape. In the face of climate variability and landscape change, targeted livestock health education for pastoralists and extension officers was identified as a common pathway for improving herd ...

About 25% of European livestock intake is based on permanent and sown grasslands. To fulfill rising demand for animal products, an intensification of livestock production may lead to an increased consumption of crop and compound feeds. In order to preserve an economically and environmentally sustainable agriculture, a more forage based livestock alimentation may be an advantage. However, besides management, grassland productivity is highly vulnerable to climate (i.e., temperature, precipitation, CO2 concentration), and spatial information about European grassland productivity in response to climate change is scarce. The process-based vegetation model ORCHIDEE-GM, containing an explicit representation of grassland management (i.e., herbage mowing and grazing), is used here to estimate changes in potential productivity and potential grass-fed ruminant livestock density across European grasslands over the period 19612010. Here potential grass-fed ruminant livestock density denotes the maximum ...
AbeBooks.com: Livestock Diseases: Prevention, Control and Compensation Schemes: 204 pages. Dimensions: 10.9in. x 8.0in. x 0.5in.This report is an overview of the management of risk due to livestock diseases, a potentially catastrophic type of risk that can have strong external effects given its links to the food chain and to human health. Animal disease, primarily in farmed livestock, has long been a policy concern for food safety reasons and the high economic losses it can engender. The globalisation of trade and human movement, and sensitivities to food safety, enhance the relevance and complexity of disease control for terrestrial livestock. Outbreaks or even rumours of an outbreak can result in widespread consumer alarm, disruption of trade, and severe effects on incomes, not to mention the human cost of illnesses and deaths arising from animal disease.

Sixty percent of all meat consumed in the UK is imported from European countries where there have been increasing reports of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) identified in food-producing animals, but rarely from such animals in the UK. Thirty samples each of raw chicken, pork and beef, sourced in England, were collected from retail outlets in Greater Manchester. MRSA was recovered from three chicken samples and one each of pork and beef, all from prepackaged supermarket meat. Four isolates were identified as representatives of the most common human healthcare-associated MRSA clone in the UK [EMRSA-15, spa type t032, belonging to multilocus sequence type clonal complex 22 (MLST-CC22)], suggesting contamination from human source(s) during meat processing. The fifth isolate (from chicken) was multiply-resistant (including oxacillin, ciprofloxacin, erythromycin, clindamycin and tetracycline), identified as ST9-SCCmecIV, spa type t1939 and lacked the immune evasion cluster, a ...
This report looks at the contribution of models to identify the characteristics of livestock systems which are likely to lead to the emergence of zoonoses hotspots, with emphasis on developing countries. It focuses on mathematical and economic models, and includes a short review of the current usage of models - and particularly network and agent-based methods - in studying zoonotic disease outbreaks. The report concludes that most models capture outbreaks over a relatively short time and largely ignore socioeconomic and climate change drivers. It suggests that a new modelling framework is needed, along with improved data collection and uncertainty analysis and communication.. {{LINK_LABEL_GO_TO_DOCUMENT}} ...

Consumers are increasingly demanding higher standards for how their meat is sourced, with animal welfare and the impact on the environment factoring in many purchases. Unfortunately, many widely-used livestock production methods are currently unsustainable. However, new research out today from the University of Cambridge has identified what may be the future of sustainable livestock production: silvopastoral systems which include shrubs and trees with edible leaves or fruits as well as herbage.
The veterinarian in Africa has two rather different functions with regard to livestock health and development. The first is to provide health services to existing livestock populations in existing production systems. The second centres on the premise that a major need in Africa is the develop ment of livestock production; this implies changing existing production systems, and it is a function of the veterinarian to help bring about such changes. Introducing changes in any livestock production system involves interfering in a very complex process. Livestock production systems, like all other systems, consist of an assembly of related components which combine for some common purpose. It is simply not possible to change one component in isolation without affecting the other components of the system. For example, when building a dip the aspects that need to be taken into consideration are inputs, dipping and outputs. These aspects are closely interrelated and must be considered from a holistic point ...
Speaking on the occasion, Shri Singh expressed that by eradicating the dreaded Rinderpest disease India has proved its ability to face the challenges with successful outcome. He stressed that similar efforts are needed to control and eradicate the diseases like FMD, PPR, Brucellosis, CSF, BT, HS etc., which cause huge economic loss annually to the livestock rearers and livestock industry as whole.. He also mentioned that ICAR-NIVEDI has identified 13 priority diseases based on their past incidence patterns and has built a strong database of these diseases and has been providing monthly livestock disease alerts to the state and central animal husbandry departments. He said the complex statistical algorithm also considers both climatic and non-climatic factors and categorizes districts into Very High Risk, High Risk, Moderate Risk, Low Risk, Very Low Risk and No Risk for a particular disease, so that stake holders can effectively plan and utilize the available resources.

Helping Dairy, Beef and Other Producers Protect Working Grasslands in 43 States. WASHINGTON, Jan. 13, 2017 - U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) Administrator Val Dolcini today announced that USDA will accept over 300,000 acres in 43 states that were offered by producers during the recent ranking period for the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) Grasslands enrollment with emphasis placed on small-scale livestock operations. Through the voluntary CRP Grasslands program, grasslands threatened by development or conversion to row crops are maintained as livestock grazing areas, while providing important conservation benefits. Approximately 200,000 of the accepted acres were offered by small-scale livestock operations.. "Producers of all sizes are interested in USDAs Conservation Reserve Program," said Dolcini. "This latest round of CRP Grasslands enrollment, where much of the acreage comes from small-scale livestock operations, shows that our nations family farmers and ...
DENMARK - There is a need for further investigations to clarify if glyphosate (the active compound in Roundup and similar pesticides) residues in feed may affect the health of livestock; particularly in animals in sensitive physiological and productive phases, say scientists from Aarhus University, Denmark.
Nomadic livestock production is the backbone of the economy of pastoral communities in the Karamoja cluster. However, widespread and uncontrolled livestock raiding is currently threatening the success of this enterprise. In fact, raiding has been named as the single most important impediment to the development of the cluster generally and particularly in the delivery of animal health services. Efforts are being made by national and international agencies to remedy the situation. One of these agencies is the CAPE Unit of OAU-IBARs PACE Programme whose mandate in the area includes the control animal diseases through community-based initiatives. Following the realisation of the negative impact of livestock raiding on animal health service delivery, the PACE with the assistance of the donor community, particularly REDSO, DFID and CDTF, initiated a Pastoral Community Harmonisation (PCH) project to find solutions to this problem in order to enable it fulfil its mandate. One of the steps taken in this ...

Livestock is a major sector in agriculture. Livestock accounts for 52.2 % of agricultural value added. It contributes 11% to Gross Domestic Products (GDP). About 30-35 million rural people depends directly or indirectly on livestock sector for their livelihoods. It has potential to absorb more rural workforce to alleviate rural poverty if proper attention is given to this sector. Pakistan is proud to be worlds fifth largest milk producer. In addition to food products, livestock sector also provide draught power, milk, meat, eggs, manure which is used as fuel or fertilizer, feathers, fiber, hides, and horns. In todays world, it role in food security can not be overstated. In order to achieve sustained development in agriculture, it is extremely important for the government to give more attention to livestock and dairy sector. Realizing its significance to poverty alleviation, the government has started giving some attention to this sector but no big national or international investment have ...
A dynamic model of livestock disease and decentralised economic behaviour is constructed as a jointly determined system. By accounting for feedbacks between behavioural choices and disease outcomes, the model captures the endogenous nature of infection risks. Government mandated testing of livestock herds and how private biosecurity incentives are affected by the structure of disease eradication polices are considered. How well disease control policies are targeted affects their effectiveness and may result in farmers substituting government testing and disease surveillance for private biosecurity. Numerical simulation results demonstrate that failing to account for feedbacks between the disease ecology and economic systems may overestimate the effectiveness of government disease control policies.

The Livestock Mandatory Price Reporting (LMR) Program was created to expand pricing information available to the livestock industry. The data is collected and distributed by USDAs Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) through its USDA Market News division to provide market information for cattle, swine, lamb, and livestock products. LMR encourages competition in the marketplace by vastly improving price and supply data, bringing transparency, breadth and depth to market reporting. Through LMR, livestock producers and processors, retail food outlets, restaurants, exporters, and many other stakeholders receive critical market intelligence on a daily basis. Literally thousands of business transactions every day rest on the outcome of LMR data.
Livestock contributes directly to the livelihoods and food security of almost a billion people and affects the diet and health of many more. With estimated standing populations of 1.43 billion cattle, 1.87 billion sheep and goats, 0.98 billion pigs, and 19.60 billion chickens, reliable and accessible information on the distribution and abundance of livestock is needed for a many reasons. These include analyses of the social and economic aspects of the livestock sector; the environmental impacts of livestock such as the production and management of waste, greenhouse gas emissions and livestock-related land-use change; and large-scale public health and epidemiological investigations. The Gridded Livestock of the World (GLW) database, produced in 2007, provided modelled livestock densities of the world, adjusted to match official (FAOSTAT) national estimates for the reference year 2005, at a spatial resolution of 3 minutes of arc (about 5×5 km at the equator). Recent methodological improvements have

Livestock judging consists of carefully analyzing animals and measuring them against a standard that is commonly accepted as being ideal. Livestock judging also has been defined as a study of the relationship between an animals form and function.. There are numerous benefits to gain from competing on a livestock evaluation team. In the course of training and competition you are given the opportunity to interact with future leaders of the livestock industry. You develop a keen sense of judgment and confidence to make a decision that you defend in a set of oral reasons. Most prominent livestock people who are masters of judgment and selection have been affected by their involvement with livestock judging.. Participation in livestock judging builds your character and makes you a more complete person.. Judging instills the confidence in those people who may be timid and humbles those who tend to be conceited. - Harlan Ritchie. ...
The survey shows that livestock owners in Serere County were practicing a crop-livestock production system. Livestock formed a major input for the crop sector in provision of traction power. The mean number of cattle was 10 animals per household implying one animal per caput. The cattle kept were only indigenous local Zebu cattle. No graded or exotic cattle were encountered in the study area. The cattle were acquired through purchase from the market. Very few households (0.7%) acquired cattle through inheritance. This shows that farmers were still restocking, as this area suffered heavy cattle raids and insurgencies from 1986 through 1990. Facilities for cattle keeping were under developed, as exhibited by very few hand sprays, crushes, drench guns and dips possessed by farmers.. Water and pasture were not problems for livestock production. Animals were grazed and watered within the same area, in the radius of less than 5 km.. The herd structure of cattle was geared towards improving traction ...
Feed waste and losses, commonly referred to as feed shrink, result from various practices most of which can be reduced through improved facilities, equipment, or management. Providing adequate quantity, quality, and nutritionally balanced feedstuffs is important to the profitability of any livestock farm. Purchased feed is the largest source of imported P on almost all livestock farms. Forage production and purchased feed are the largest annual expense items for most livestock farms. Almost all feed shrink, other than gaseous fermentation losses, eventually end up in fields. Therefore, anything to reduce feed loss has the potential to reduce the P imports and feed expenses. It would be impossible to have zero feed shrink on a livestock facility.. Mismanagement of forages can contribute up to 30% shrink on some farms, however, some farmers are able to manage their forage shrink to as low as 5%1, 3. Keeping forage shrink to less than 10% is a good goal1, 3. Some commercial feed mills attain a 1% ...
Pests and disease have a huge impact on our livestock industries every year. Cattle tick, for example, was most recently estimated to cost the northern Australian beef industry $161 million and buffalo flies a further $99 million over a 12-month period," Dr James said.. "Areas with high temperatures and humidity offer the perfect climatic conditions for parasites to survive and spread. Based on current forecasts around climate change and rising temperatures, Australia will experience significantly increased impacts from buffalo fly and greater tick challenge in south east Queensland and northern NSW," he said.. In the non-dairy cattle industries, and sheep and goat industries, Meat & Livestock Australia recently estimated parasite-related illness or disease to cost $438 million, $718 million and $3 million, respectively.. "We now have strong evidence to suggest that rising temperatures will increase pest and disease related problems and add further pressure to our livestock industries," Dr James ...
Fertility is managed on the pastures and hayfields through the urine and manure that the animals leave behind in their grazing rotation and from feeding of round bales Determining where the animals will be out-wintered from December through April depends upon animal comfort, fertility needs, water availability and frozen ground. The cows have access to the woods and hedgerows to protect them from harsh weather, and placement of round bales directs most of the fertility where it is needed most . Livestock Health. The biggest, most positive shift to livestock health came with the conversion to spring seasonal production with no barns. When I got rid of the barn, I got rid of two things. I got rid of the vet and I got rid of the work.", says Rob.

An expanding livestock production sector could add value to corn in coming months - welcome news for growers who saw corn and soybean prices fall in the wake of an EPA-proposed decrease in the Renewable Fuel Standard for 2014, Purdue Extension agricultural economist Chris Hurt says.
Livestock are animals kept under agricultural conditions for the production of meat, dairy, eggs, fibre or other products. This category contains sites about regulations covering the health of livestock and general livestock health issues.
Livestock sector plays a multi-faceted role in socio-economic development of rural households and contributes about 4.2 percent to the Gross Domestic Product and 25.6 percent to the Agricultural Gross Domestic Product in the country. Over the last three decades, livestock sector has grown at an annual rate of 7 percent, which is more than double the growth of the agricultural sector. Empirical evidences indicate that livestock is an important component of the agriculture system, providing an additional source of income and nutritional cover to a large section of the rural population, particularly the disadvantaged and poor households (Rao et al 2003; Birthal and Ali 2005; Ravikumar and Chander 2006, Singh et al 2007). The distribution of livestock, as a liquid asset to poor families, is more egalitarian as compared to land (Taneja and Birthal 2004; Ali 2007). However, the recent trend in livestock sector growth suggests that in order to meet the emerging demand for livestock based products, both ...

If you own a cattle ranch or raise them in any way, you will recognize the importance of ensuring that the cattle eat nutritiously. Whether you are raising them for beef, dairy or other purposes, you know that sickly cows or steers will not generate much cash flow on the market. Thus, it is crucial to feed the cattle the right mixture of products for healthy growing. A pet store in California that also provides Animal Cattle Service in El Dorado Hills CA understands the significance of these needs and provide products for ranchers and others to purchase.. When it comes to raising beef cattle, there is a difference in the grazing they do on the land, and the finishing in the feed, which is integral in raising quality livestock. The livestock market is calling for a grade of beef that is lighter. Ranchers have to take steps to ensure the cattle they are raising for beef is eating the proper, nutritious feed. In order to prepare the livestock to get a better price on the market, it becomes ...
Transport costs and market opportunities are the main determinants. First, the industrial system, especially for pigs and poultry, is characterised by a significant, and often exclusive, use of feeds of high energy content (mainly cereals, oilseeds and their byproducts). This high energy density allows movement of feeds over longer distances at substantially lower costs than perishable animal products, even though the quantities are larger. For example, sea transport costs of grains is one-tenth per unit weight that of frozen meat Cunningham (1992). Thus, with an average feed conversion of 3:1 for pigs and 2:1 for poultry it is less costly to transport feed than meat. In addition, over short to medium distances, live animal transport costs are similar to those of grains. These relative costs encourage production, slaughter and meat processing facilities to be located near urban centres. The large number of industrial units being established around Beijing, Shanghai, Mumbai and Calcutta ...

The increasing amount of meat-eaters in the developing and developed world contributes indirectly to the severe malnutrition of other human populations, as the land used for livestock feed detracts from the overall possible agricultural land used for human nutrition. That is, the crops used to feed animals for meat-consumption in Europe, for example, are taken from Brazil or Africa, whose own populations are suffering from malnutrition. In his book So Shall We Reap, Colin Tudge says of the increasing livestock market: "If present trends of meat-eating continue, then by 2050 the worlds livestock will be consuming as much as 4 billion people do." An estimated 3.6 million children could be saved from malnutrition by a 50% reduction in meat consumption in developed countries.. Livestock and Pollution. Besides the devastating land-use impact of raising livestock (30% of the worlds land surface is used for livestock grazing or agricultural feed for the animals)-which includes the massive clearing, ...

An article in Tuesdays Los Angeles Times explores the regulatory hurdles standing in the way of genetically engineered (GE) livestock commercialization. The first GE animals--mice engineered for research purposes to express leukemia DNA sequences--were developed as long ago as 1974. And since the early 1980s, GE lab animals have become ubiquitous in medical research. In 2009, FDA even approved ATryn (recombinant antithrombin), a therapeutic protein purified from the milk of genetically engineered goats. But while millions of genetically engineered animals have been produced safely for close to four decades, no GE livestock animal has ever made it through the FDA approval process to commercialization. Thats not because theres no research being conducted in that field. Dozens of GE livestock animals expressing a broad range of new traits have been developed in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Asia. Nor is it due to any inherent safety concerns. As noted above, scientists have been engineering ...

must check the zero balance of the scale or reweigh a livestock draft when requested by such persons.. Registrants, packers, and the weighers they employ must comply with a request by any authorized P&SP agent to reweigh livestock or livestock carcasses, so P&SP can determine if the weights recorded by the scale are accurate. False weighing is a criminal offense. Legal action may be brought if incorrect weighing is found.. GIPSA (Grain Inspection and Packers and Stockyards Administration (sometimes referred to as P&S) requires Market Agencies (such as Superior Livestock Auction), Dealers (order buyers), Livestock Markets (stockyards, livestock auctions) and Packers to weigh livestock and/or grain on scales that have been tested and certified within six months prior to use. They also require that complete weighing records are maintained and on file. All video/internet auctions, dealers, order buyers, sale barns, packers, grain dealers, et al. are regulated by GIPSA (P&S) and all are required to ...

Site and farm suitability Our principles for sustainable livestock production places emphasis on livestock systems being land-based and integrated with farm cropping enterprises.
Feedlot or intensive finishing environments present significant animal health challenges due to a large number of livestock being confined to a relatively small area. The more pathogens that livestock can be exposed to before the feedlot or intensive finishing system entry, the more likely they are to mount a successful immune response to a challenge once on feed.. Backgrounding plays an important role in minimising health issues once in the feedlot or intensive finishing system by allowing livestock to interact, experience low levels of contagions and develop immunity.. Viral infections such as Pesti Virus and Infectious Bovine Rhiotracheitis are extremely contagious but generally cause only mild signs in young stock. However, they cause marked transient immuno-suppression during the viraemia and this allows more serious pathogens to establish. This is particularly important for conditions such as bovine respiratory disease which is caused by bacterial pathogens that are commonly found in the ...

Antibiotic use in livestock has been a source of controversy in the United States, but a Purdue University animal scientist said it can be an effective method of disease prevention and treatment when used correctly.
Fishmeal and crops such as soya are key protein sources for animal feeds, but they are not ecologically and economically sustainable. In West Africa, poultry farming is practised by almost all smallholder farmers. Poultry producers suffer from the increasing cost of feed (representing up to 70% of the total production costs), in particular protein sources. Smallholder farmers with scavenging poultry rarely provide the necessary quantity of protein feeds, which affects meat production and eggs, and reduces family income. Similarly, small-scale fish farmers often feed their fish on natural feed (plankton), green leaves and agricultural by-products. The nutritional value of these feeds is low, resulting in poor yields and less income for the household.

A trip down memory lane recently took Jacob Segers to Perry, Ga., the site of this weeks Georgia National Fair.. The University of Georgia beef cattle specialist reminisced about children from all over the state visiting Perry for the annual Livestock/Horse show. Segers showed cattle as a youngster in the late 90s and early 2000s so he can testify to the long road trips, hours of hard work caring for heifers and steers and riding in the back of the truck finishing homework on the way to a cattle show.. It was a way of life he came to enjoy as a child and many others are experiencing this week at the Georgia National Fair Livestock/Horse Show.. "This is a big deal. For livestock kids in Georgia, its the deal," Segers said.. Segers days of showing cattle are over, but he is still very much involved in the production of livestock shows, as are other UGA faculty members like Ronnie Silcox, Lawton Stewart, Jillian Fain and Robert Dove from the Animal and Dairy Science Department in Athens and ...

Hunting goes beyond livestock farming practices. A lot of food that is more produced in big numbers most cases go to waste. Livestock farming has already needed the destruction of millions of acres of carbon-absorbing forests worldwide accounting for a lot of global carbon releases. Hunting is a sustainable option that can substitute all good traditional livestock. Wild meat tastes better just how nature intended it to be. Much of commercially-raised livestock actually does have added ingredients. Agricultural livestock animals are at times given small doses of antibiotics to enhance growth. This practice causes the emergence of antibiotic-resistance bacterial strains. The steroids hormones that are given to animals are at the end deposited out of the human body and get into water system causing endocrine interruption for fish and other wildlife, and this eventually gets back into the human body.. The sport keeps itself wild since the hunters are among the most active conservationists. For ...

April 13, 2001. FMD Market Risks. The European outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) raises serious concerns that an outbreak in the United States could produce dramatic market reactions.. Livestock markets are very sensitive to which countries have FMD. U.S. beef and pork exports have experienced rapid growth in recent years, setting new records each year. These exports have contributed to the strong meat demand and positive price outlook for the coming year. FMD in other countries potentially opens up additional export opportunities as long as the U.S. remains disease free. However, a U.S. FMD outbreak would immediately shut off these exports. In addition, while there is no human health risk with FMD, the perception of health concerns would likely negatively affect demand. The result could be sharp price declines, interruption of livestock movement and a devastating economic impact on the livestock industry.. Consideration should be given to strategies to reduce market risk. Government ...

KING, Donald P. et al. New technologies to diagnose and monitor infectious diseases of livestock: Challenges for sub-Saharan Africa. Onderstepoort j. vet. res. [online]. 2012, vol.79, n.2, pp.43-48. ISSN 2219-0635.. Using foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) as an example, this review describes new tools that can be used to detect and characterise livestock diseases. In recent years, molecular tests that can detect and characterise pathogens in a diverse range of sample types have revolutionised laboratory diagnostics. In addition to use in centralised laboratories, there are opportunities to locate diagnostic technologies close to the animals with suspected clinical signs. Work in this area has developed simple-to-use lateral-flow devices for the detection of FMD virus (FMDV), as well as new hardware platforms to allow molecular testing to be deployed into the field for use by non-specialists. Once FMDV has been detected, nucleotide sequencing is used to compare field strains with reference viruses. ...

First F10 Livestock Evaluation Standards Approved. Long before that roast pork, beef or chicken arrives on the dining room table, its economic value must be determined. The grocery store cost of the roast, or the side of meat it came from, or the entire animal, results from measurement evaluations made with the use of special devices and equipment.. With anticipated publication dates in February, the first two standards from ASTM Committee F10 on Livestock, Meat, and Poultry Evaluation Systems address these devices and systems used by the processing industry to measure and record composition or quality. The documents are F 2341, Practice for User Requirements for Livestock, Meat, and Poultry Evaluation Devices or Systems, and F 2342, Specification for Design and Construction of Composition or Quality Constituent Measuring Devices or Systems.. Sheldon Clark, co-chair of the task group that developed F 2341 and hog evaluation manager for John Morrell and Co., Sioux Falls, S.D., notes that the new ...

The multidisciplinary, collaborative response to this latest outbreak reflects the WCS One World-One Health approach to making informed, multidisciplinary decisions on global health crises that intersect human, wildlife, and livestock health. Wildlife and health experts, including F.A.O. and the World Organization for Animal Health, maintain that indiscriminate culling of wild migratory bird populations would be ineffective in preventing the spread of avian flu. Wild birds, some of which are critically threatened or endangered are also being impacted directly by the H5N1 strain of influenza virus. Focusing resources on the hubs and activities where humans, livestock, and wildlife come into close contact is the best hope for successfully preventing the spread of avian flu and protecting both people and animals. To contain this potential epidemic, prevention activities must include better management practices in farms, especially those that are small and open-air where domestic poultry and ...
Balancing a flat hoof on a round pipe is a difficult proposition for most animals. There are some exceptions: goats, sheep and other surefooted livestock can cross cattle guards fairly easily and your soft-footed barnyard friends such as dogs & cats will be able to walk right across.. Please note that cattle guards are not recommended for use with horses. Their smaller and slender legs can slide down between the rails and be expose to breakage at their weakest point. Being a flight animal means that they will struggle more fiercely out if panic to get out and unintentionally increase the risk of injury. The best barrier for these animals is a swing gate.. Simple and effective, cattle guards provide a swift and maintenance free method of ensuring your livestock stay on your ranch. You will never need to open and close gate again and youll have peace of mind knowing that a gate somewhere has been left open.. If you have any questions about installation or need and long-lasting heavy-duty cattle ...
