* This Week's Feature Articles

We have 5 new features this week:

Iodine Supplement Shows Important Benefits
Clinical trials on the reproductive performance of cattle herds and research into deficiencies in trace elements in cattle, led vet John Cook to two important discoveries, writes TheCattleSite Senior Editor, Chris Harris.
Understanding the Loss of Cattle Fertility and Reversing the Trend
Recent studies have revealed that there is an overall decrease in the fertility of cows in Europe. 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.
Dairy Herd Health
Researchers at Moorepark Dairy Production Research Centre have recently started a new herd health programme, which aims to prepare Irish dairy farmers for the biosecurity challenges of herd expansion. This article, a product of the Irish Agriculture and Food Development Authority, was published in the T Research magazine Volume 3, Number 3, Autumn 2008.
Low-Profile Cross-Ventilated Freestall Facilities
A two year study into low-profile cross-ventilated freestall facilities reinforced the belief that these facilities provide a lot of potential benefits to dairy producers, but many design challenges still remain. J. P. Harner, Ph.D. and J. F. Smith, Ph.D., Kansas State University, explain the conclusions of their study. This feature was taken from the proceedings of the High Plains Dairy Conference. A full link to the proceedings is provided below.
UK Milk Statistics
This publication, published on 24 September 2008 according to the arrangements approved by the UK Statistics Authority, brings together various sources of statistics relating to the production and supply of milk and milk products.
