* This Week's Feature Articles

We have 4 new features this week:

Impact of Biofuels on Meat Production

Understanding the Loss of Cattle Fertility and Reversing the Trend

In order to combat this pattern producers can make changes to their feeding schedules which can have a dramatic impact on cyclicity and fertility in dairy and beef cows, writes Adam Anson, reporting for TheCattleSite.
Using Liquid Feed Supplements for Beef Production
Liquid feed supplements, formulated to be used by grazing cattle, are now readily available throughout New South Wales, writes Ian Blackwood, Livestock Officer (Beef Products), Extensive Industries Development.
