* This Week's Feature Articles

We have 5 new features this week:

The Trials and Errors of Monitor Farms
Monitor Farms are designed to encourage farmers, veterinary surgeons and scientists to share best practise knowledge within local communities. So far, they have received encouraging results, but just how far does the scope of these projects fall? asks Adam Anson, reporting for TheCattleSite.
U.S. Beef Demand Drivers and Enhancement Opportunities
Large shifts in domestic beef demand have had substantial impacts on the beef industry. Before the late 1970s, growth in the U.S. economy and rising consumer incomes contributed to beef demand increasing for a sustained period, reports the K-STATE Department of Agricultural Economics.
Short Cut Corn Silage Works
You can make better silage by chopping your corn into finer particle sizes. Your cows can thrive on it, too, writes Barry Potter - Livestock Specialist/OMAFRA.
Calendar for Pastures in 2009
Many of us make resolutions or use a calendar for planning the coming year when January rolls around, writes Dennis Johnson, University of Minnesota Dairy Extension.
Monthly Market Profile: 7 Isn't Always Lucky
The beef complex will never receive mainstream media attention compared to the likes of the financial, auto, or airline industries, writes Nevil Speer, Professor, Animal Science, Western Kentucky University. This article was published in the Ohio State University Extension Beef Team Newsletter.
