Editorial: No Deal For Glanbia Co-operative

Glanbia, an international nutritional ingredients and cheese group had agreed to dispose of its Irish dairy and agri-business to a Glanbia co-operative, however a vote in favour of the buy-out has been unsuccessful.

Despite much support for the €343m deal, 73 per cent of members voted in favour of the buy-out, two per cent of the 75 per cent required.

Research in the US has identified a new method to help prevent the outbreak of E.coli in cattle.

The researchers interfered with a genetic sensing mechanism that allows the E.coli strain to form colonies within cattle, causing the bacteria to die off before they could reach the animals’ recto-anal junction, the primary site of colonisation.

The study is still in early days, but the scientists are discussing the possibilities of including some sort of antagonist in cattle feed, which would result in less shedding of the bacteria in fecal matter with less contamination down the road in food products.

Following last week's election in the UK, which saw a new government come into power, there are hopes in the industry that a greater emphasis will be placed on tackling bovine tuberculosis in England.

Parish, Associate Extension/ Research Professor, Animal and Dairy Sciences; Dr. Jamie E. Larson, Assistant Professor, Animal and Dairy Sciences; and Dr. Rhonda C. Vann, Associate Research Professor, Brown Loam Branch Experiment Station.
World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates - May 2010
Tighter cattle supplies, as a result of a declining cattle inventory over recent years, and pressure on imports will likely lead to a fall in beef production in 2011. This may however push prices up, says the USDA World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates for May 2010.
