* This Week's Feature Articles

We have 4 new features this week:

Dairying Vietnamese Style
Traditionally milk has never featured to any great degree in Asian diets but this is now changing as the health benefits of having milk in the diet are now being appreciated, writes Stuart Lumb.
TSE Surveillance
Sally Spence, Technical Specialist, Field Veterinary services and Product Integrity and Sarah Aitken, Veterinary Intern, at the New South Wales Department of Primary Industries looks at the Australian surveillance system for transmissible spongiform encephalopathies, including BSE.
Feedstuff Comparisons Offer Interesting Results
Replacing the starch in corn grain with equal amounts of other nonfiber carbohydrates (NFC) or digestible neutral detergent fiber (NDF) in byproduct feedstuffs does not change energy availability, despite differences in rumen degradation rates among carbohydrate fractions, writes J.W. Schroeder, Dairy Specialist from North Dakota State University Extension Service.
Designing Vaccination Programs
