We have 4 new features this week:

Emerging Animal Diseases and International Trade
Infectious animal and zoonotic diseases are becoming more and more important in the changing farming and trading systems of the industrialised and developing world, writes TheCattleSite Senior Editor, Chris Harris.

The automatic monitoring of health and performance in dairy herds has long been an idea assigned to the future, but Peter Løvendahl, a researcher in genetics and biotechnology at Aarhus Universitet, says that the technology has already arrived. The time to implement it is now upon us, writes Adam Anson, TheCattleSite reporter.
