Welcome to this week's newsletter

* This Week's Feature Articles

We have 6 new features this week:

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.
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.
Dairy: World Markets and Trade
Global dairy prices have been falling sharply in recent weeks as evidenced by the graph below tracking nonfat dry milk (NDM) prices, says a USDA Foreign Agricultural Service report.
Cold Weather Calf and Replacement Heifer Comfort
Cold weather is coming. Are you prepared to provide exceptional comfort to your calves and replacement heifers this winter? Asks Kevin A. Janni, Professor and Extension Engineer, University of Minnesota, Dairy Extension.
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.
US Feed Outlook
Meat production prospects are being reduced due to harsh economic conditions in several countries, thereby leading to lower forecast corn imports, according to the USDA's Economic Research Service (ERS) Feed Outlook report for February 2009.
