We have 6 new features this week:

Searching to Support Falling US Beef Demand
Cattle producers hope for more signs of plentiful corn supplies and lower feed costs to help them deal with lower cattle prices, writes Roy Leidahl, reporting for TheCattleSite.
The Changing Face of Rural America
In almost all aspects, the average US farmer seems to have become a more complex character. According to the newly released Census of Agriculture, he is becoming increasingly feminine, has greater ethnic background, is more mature and yet has a greater grasp of modern technology. Adam Anson - reporting for TheCattleSite - summarises the statistics.
Economic Analysis of Pharmaceutical Technologies in Modern Beef Production
Cattle production is the largest single agricultural sector in the U.S. with cash receipts of $49.2 billion in 2005, writes John D. Lawrence and Maro A. Ibarburu, Iowa State University.
Frost Seed to Renovate Pastures
Frost seeding is one method that producers can use to renovate pastures and improve pasture quality and/or the species mix within the pasture, writes Rory Lewandowski, Extension Educator, Athens County. This feature was published in the Ohio State University Extension Beef Team Newsletter.
AFBI Evaluates Costs of Finishing Suckler Bred Bulls
UK - With current high costs and low returns from beef production, suckler producers and beef finishers need to re-evaluate their production systems and examine methods by which output and efficiency can be improved, while at the same time controlling or reducing production costs, reports Agri-Food and Biosciences Institute.
World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates - February 2009
Total U.S. meat production for 2009 is forecast lower this month based on reductions of both red meats and poultry, according to the latest World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) from the United States Department of Agriculture.
