We have 5 new features this week:

The livestock sector is not only contributing to global warming, it is suffering from it as well, writes Chris Harris, Senior Editor, TheCattleSite.
Country of Origin: What's in a Label?
Country of Origin Labelling is the next step to an entirely open marketplace for the US. In an ideal supermarket, consumers can understand as well as see the product that they are purchasing and they can monitor the system of production which has brought it to their aisles, but what are the real issues that follow this dream, asks Adam Anson, reporting for TheCattleSite, and what implications does COOL bring back to the producer?
“No Bull” Discussion on Genetic Markers

Parish, Associate Extension/ Research Professor, and Dr. Justin D. Rhinehart, Assistant Extension Professor, Animal and Dairy Sciences. Published by the Mississippi State University.
