the effect of alternative bedding materials on sheep behaviour and welfare

The effect of alternative bedding materials on sheep behaviour and welfare Dr Ruth Wonfor: IBERS, Aberystwyth University  Bedding is important for keeping animals clean and dry but also for environmental enrichment in housed sheep systems to improve animal welfare.  Straw encourages natural sheep behaviour but is increasingly expensive and increases the environmental footprint of the Welsh sheep industry through haulage of cereal straw across the UK.  Recent studies have investigated viable options for sheep bedding. In Wales, woodchip has been demonstrated as an option, as long as the farm is set up to properly manage the bedding.  Further work is needed to investigate other viable sources of bedding at different stages of the sheep’s life. Choice of bedding is important in animal housing

duchy college wins niab agronomy cup

Four agriculture students from Cornwall’s Duchy College are the winners of the NIAB Agronomy Cup and the title ‘the best student wheat growers in the country’.Rosie Dodd, Reuben Ridout, Holly Yelland and Lauren Hill are all studying for a foundation degree in agriculture. They achieved the highest gross margin in the 2016 competition at £1,531.95/ha, based on a yield of 11.70 t/ha and an input cost of £82.65/ha. They beat 18 other university and college teams, and a team of NIAB TAG farmer members, to lift the Cup and win a day out with a NIAB TAG agronomist and free entry to a NIAB TAG members’ technical conference. The winners all come from family farming backgrounds, with a strong bias towards livestock. The only Cornishman in the team Reuben’s family has an organic poultry, beef and sh

rotational grazing to enhance flowers and insects and maintain productivity

A biodiversity-friendly rotational grazing system enhancing flower-visiting insect assemblages while maintaining animal and grassland productivity.Grazing management is an important tool to preserve insect biodiversity. Although literature has discussed the importance of grazing pressure adjustment to support grassland insect communities for the ecosystem services they provide, little has been published on the economic sustainability of such management adjustments to date. This study compared continuous grazing (CG) to an innovative rotational grazing system (the biodiversity-friendly rotation – BR), where a subplot was excluded from grazing for two months during the main flowering period. The effects of grazing two different species (cattle and sheep) within both systems were also evaluat

presstv-iran, new zealand agree to resume trade

Iran has signed a new agreement to resume sheep and beef imports from New Zealand and discussed possible kiwifruit and shrimp exports to that country.New Zealand Primary Industries Minister Nathan Guy and Iranian Agriculture Minister Mahmoud Hojjati witnessed the signing of the agreement which provides for chilled and frozen sheep and beef exports to resume with Iran, a statement said.  Hojjati touched on capacities existing between the two countries for cage fish farming and marketing cooperation on exports to other countries.“The determination of the two countries for development of constructive relationships is serious and Iran is ready to cooperate with New Zealand in such fields as research, exchange of germplasm, pasture pest management and hybrid seed production,” he said on Sunday.

breakforcist is the most important meal of the day

#breakforcist ($2.99) by Kevin John of Lucid Sheep Games is a delightful and purely chaotic brick-breaker arcade game that combines the awesomeness of breakfast with wacky exorcisms. If you enjoyed other quirky takes on traditional games, such as Stagehand and RunGunJumpGun, then you will love what #breakforcist has to offer.Now that I’ve been back from the Game Developer’s Conference in San Francisco last week (and checked out a ton of awesome upcoming games), I’m in the mood for some indie games more than ever before. As I was away, I did notice a ton of new games that hit the App Store, so I have a bit of catching up to do in terms of releases. One that particularly caught my eye was #breakforcist because of the graphics (screenshots matter). While I’m not the biggest fan of brick-break

“What are the lessons people most often learn too late in life?” — a question that hits thousands of people on Quora. Guess what’s topped the list?

It leads you to nowhere but mediocrity.The old rules only yield mediocrity.The cruel reality is that only very few of us would enjoy the taste of success.

samsung commits to monthly security updates for unlocked us smartphones

Enlarge/ The Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, Samsung's most recent (non-exploding) flagship smartphones. Ron AmadeoShare this storyAccording to a report from ZDNet, Samsung is finally bringing monthly Android security updates to one of its most neglected flagship smartphone variants: unlocked US devices. An e-mail from the company says it has "resolved the challenges" with releasing monthly updates, and it is now "committed" to releasing updates every month for "unlocked Galaxy devices" in the US.Unlocked devices are usually safe bets as the best models for updates because they are free from carrier interference. This means there is one less stumbling block in the usual "Google ⇒ OEM ⇒ Carrier" software handoff. In Samsung's case, though, there are two major versions of the Galaxy S7 (and m

presstv-americans rush for new zealand citizenship

The number of US applications to obtain the citizenship of New Zealand has seen a dramatic increase following the election of President Donald Trump.Compared to a year earlier, the number grew by 70 percent in the 12 weeks following Trump’s November 8 election victory against former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, the Associated Press reported Tuesday, citing immigration records obtained through a freedom of information request. Applications by people with a New Zealand parent rose by 11 percent in the same period.   In January, the number of Americans who applied for a work visa to the Oceanian country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean was up by 18 percent. New Zealand's Department of Internal Affairs said during the two weekdays after Trump’s victory, its website saw a tenfold increa

scientists discover how animals measure time of year to reproduce

Credit: CC0 Public DomainAnimals need to measure the time of year so that they can anticipate and adapt to the arrival of a new season to align reproduction, as well as other vital functions critical for survival. A new study, conducted at the University of Bristol, has identified how animals measure annual time to control seasonal fertility.
In birds and mammals, this process of adaptation is mediated by the release of hormones from the pituitary gland that control multiple functions such as reproduction, the response to stress, and when the animals grow a new coat. The measurement of day length, however, and consequently time of year, is mediated by the hormone melatonin, which is released from the pineal gland during the night. Until now, how melatonin could signal to the pituitary wa

agricultural revolution sees six out of seven farms disappear since 1950

Photo: Depositphotos.comThe Dutch farming sector has been transformed since the war by massive consolidation that has seen six out of every seven farms disappear, new figures show.A study by the CBS confirmed that large-scale agribusinesses now dominate the sector. The average pig farm in 2017 had 1,600 animals, against a figure of seven in 1950. Similarly, cattle farmers now have an average herd of nearly 160 cows, compared to 13 in 1950.Overall the Netherlands has 55,000 farming businesses, cultivating a total area of 1.8 million hectares. Both the number of farms and the total land area have shrunk since 1950, when there were 410,000 farms working 2.3 million hectares overall.The number of sheep has declined sharply from a peak of 2 million in 1992 to around 780,000, slightly fewer than

milkweed defensive strategy drives away friends of enemies

In a mutually beneficial arrangement, ants consume aphid excrement, known as honeydew, while protecting the pests from other insects. Milkweed drives away ants by releasing a toxin that poisons the honeydew. Credit: Ellen Woods ’10/ProvideOver millions of years under attack from insects, milkweed plants have developed considerable defenses. These include incredible toxicity – sufficient to kill a horse or sheep – which emanates from a milkweed's leaves in a sticky liquid.
Yet one of the plant's main pests, the aphid, has evolved its own defenses to thwart the milkweed toxin. Increased toxicity would then seem to offer no direct advantage to the plant's survival, but a new study by Anurag Agrawal, professor of ecology and evolutionary biology in the College of Agriculture and Life Science

aussie and kiwi scientists use tech to fight livestock rustling

Cattle rustling is a huge and very expensive international problem that has actually been on the rise over the past decade. Now, a team of Australian and New Zealand scientists are hoping to put a dent in these crimes with a new theft-prevention system that uses GPS technology to keep track of livestock. (Modern Farmer)The researchers from Australia’s Central Queensland University, led by Associate Professor Mark Trotter with the help of Stuart Charters from Lincoln University, in New Zealand, have designed an animal sensing platform with GPS location that can detect any unusual livestock behavior patterns or movements and send the information to a smartphone to clue in ranchers and law enforcement officers that a theft is taking place. Trotter told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation

neanderthal tooth plaque sheds light on ancient diets, medication, and love

Tooth plaque recovered from the remains of five Neanderthals has shed light on ancient diets and self-medication attempts. The remains were recovered from the El Sidron Cave in Spain; their tooth plaque was compared to the tooth plaque recovered from Neanderthal remains previously found in Belgium. While the Neanderthals in Belgium apparently had meat-heavy diets, the Neanderthals in Spain consumed a lot of plants and mushrooms.The tooth plaque was studied via DNA analysis, which revealed that the El Sidron Neanderthals likely spent a lot of time foraging for and consuming plants and also eating mushrooms. This is in contrast to the Spy Cave Neanderthals who likewise consumed mushrooms, but also meat from wild sheep and woolly rhinos.That’s not to say that the Spain-based Neanderthals didn

livestock farmers urged to post-mortem suspected cases of schmallenberg disease

Livestock producers across the country are being urged to submit lambs with suspected Schmallenberg virus (SBV) for post-mortem examination as the number of confirmed cases continues to grow.Lambing flocks across the country have experienced higher than normal losses from deformed lambs with the disease so far confirmed in the South West, South East, Wales and the North East. Early calving herds have also experienced calves affected with congenital defects.SBV is transmitted by midges which infect sheep, cattle and goats when they bite. Infected cattle can sometimes demonstrate symptoms of acute disease; however, if infected in the earlier stages of pregnancy, lambs and calves can be born with severe malformations that can make delivery very difficult particularly in those with rigidly fix

farm incomes and profitability hit a new peak as production surges

Australian farmers are riding a wave of profitability and soaring production with the farm cash incomes of broad-acre Australian farms projected to rise to $216,000 in 2016-17, the highest figure recorded in the past two decades.The boom result, which is more than double the average for the 10 years to 2015-16 of $104,000, has been driven by record winter grain production, soaring prices for beef cattle and very good prices for lamb, wool and sheep.
