Editorial: Market Outlook

It is expected that global dairy prices will face downwards pressure as supply builds and demand slows down.

However the effect of this will not be immediate, says a new report from Rabobank.

In the UK, the government has, perhaps controversially, abandoned plans to vaccinate badgers in all areas but one.

Originally a badger vaccination programme was to go ahead in five areas, however the new government has said that the project will only go ahead in Gloucestershire.

This move has been fully supported by farming unions, who believe a badger cull alongside the vaccination programme would be the most effective way of managing bovine tuberculosis.

Elsewhere in the UK, a research institute in Edinburgh has been awarded over nine million Euros (£7.5 million) to research new vaccines for parasitic diseases.

In Northern Ireland, a new animal welfare bill has been introduced.

The new bill will increase the penalties for serious animal welfare offences, extend the powers of seizure and extend the ability to licence any activity involving animals.

Japan is still suffering from outbreaks of foot and mouth disease.
