We have 4 new features this week:

GM Restrictions: A Boon to the European Livestock Sector?
Several feed organisations in the EU have warned of the dangers posed by a lack of soya supplies, writes Rachel Ralte reporting for TheCattleSite.
Unmasking the Canadian Cattle Crisis
1989 was a pivotal year for the Canadian beef and cattle sectors. A new market structure held aloft a promise of modernisation, globalisation and sector efficiency. Only now are the full effects coming to light and with them the realisation of what this promise really delivered, writes Adam Anson, reporting for TheCattleSite.
Russia: The Sleeping Bear Awakes
Russia is the largest country in the world, covering 17,075,400 square kilometers, from the Bering Sea twenty kilometers from Alaska, to the Baltic Sea in Europe. This emerging economy has an insatiable appetite for western meat, as well as meat technology and equipment, says the Argentine Beefpackers Association, SA.
Slurry Application Management for Optimum Fertilizer Value
Volatile fertilizer prices experienced in the last year have contributed to a large increase in the value of cattle slurry to the farmer, writes Stan Lalor in a Teagasc publication.
