Welcome to this week's newsletter Editorial: Farmers Receive Payments!

The window for EU countries to pay out the Single Payment Scheme payments opened on 1 December. Over 70 per cent of claimants in England, Scotland and Wales will have received payments by the end the week.

The US Department of Agriculture, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (USDA - APHIS) has proposed new rules for managing bovine tuberculosis (bTB). The proposals are aimed at reducing the introduction of bTB into the US herd and providing improved management of the disease for bTB affected herds.

The Food and Agriculture Organisation has declared that the virus rinderpest will be soon be declared eradicated.

One of the largest organic cattle producers in the US has been suspended for four years from selling organic dairy cows after failing to demonstrate that it was following federal organic standards.

We have 4 new features this week:

Dairy Cows On Pasture - Is It More Profitable?
Since early 2007, grazing-only dairies added 6,000 cows to Georgia’s herd. Another 8,000 cows will be added by the end of 2010. While the grazing dairy industry has expanded, the conventional dairy industry has shrunk, according to Nick Hill and Dennis Hancock, University of Georgia.
Variation In Costs For Animal Disease Prevention
A new report Cost of National Prevention Systems for Animal Diseases and Zoonoses in Developing and Transition Countries commissioned by the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) has been published recently. The main conclusions are summarised by Jackie Linden for TheCattleSite. These include that there is a strong relationship between current spending per animal unit and GDP, although this is unrelated to the level of spending required.
China´s Dairy Industry: A Contaminated Goldmine
Almost a year has passed since the eruption of the melamine-tainted milk scandal that still reverberates across the globe; China's dairy industry is recovering steadily, albeit under a large current of sweeping changes, according to Chris Teo, e-FeedLink.
The End Of The Road For Rinderpest
Sometime in the next 18 months, one of the most devastating animal diseases, rinderpest, will be officially declared eradicated.
