* This Week's Feature Articles

We have 4 new features this week:

Zoonoses in the EU: Trends and Sources

Human Cow Interactions
This year I have spent many days at dairies in Minnesota and South Dakota collecting data for an observational study on dairy housing systems (including low profile cross-ventilated freestall barns) and well-being, writes Marcia Endres, Extension Dairy Scientist, University of Minnesota.
Managing Milk Composition: Evaluating Herd Potential
The major components of raw milk are water, fat, protein, lactose, and minerals. These components can be influenced by many factors, including genetics and nutrition, says an Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service report.
US Feed Outlook
US feed grain supplies are expected to be up slightly from last month, but they show a fall year on year, according to the USDA Economic Research Service Feed Outlook for January 2009. Corn and Sorghum production is up with more and more corn being used to produce ethanol, the report says.
