* This Week's Feature Articles

We have 5 new features this week:

Bovine TB: Tracking the Footprints from Deer to Cattle
It has been known for some time that many species of wild deer can carry and transmit Bovine Tuberculosis, but limited research has kept scientists in the dark on the prevalence of these incidents and how they can affect cattle populations, writes Adam Anson, reporting for TheCattleSite.
Developments in Biofuels; Implications for Livestock Production
As the manufacture of biofuels grows, questions are being asked as to whether such a strategy can be supported without putting unacceptable pressure on the food supply chain, writes John Pinkeye, Ensus Biofuels, in the proceedings from the 42nd University of Nottingham Feed Conference.
Preventing Early Lactation Mastitis
There is nothing more frustrating than having a good (or bad for that matter) cow calve and get clinical mastitis during her period of peak production. Not only is it frustrating, it is also very costly, Jim Salfer, Extension Educator-Dairy, University of Minnesota Dairy Extension.
Tame Pasture Grass and Legume Species and Grazing Guidelines
Jim Jacobs, NRCS Plant Materials Specialist, and Jon Siddoway, NRCS Rangeland Management Specialist, explain how to maximise the benfits of tame grass for grazing.
Cows Should Not Be Gift-wrapped
Cows should not be gift-wrapped. Very few questions are ever asked by those planning to purchase replacement cows, writes Kris Ringwall, Beef Specialist. This article was produced by the North Dakota State University Extension Service.
