Research Adds More Evidence to Role of Dairy in Weight Loss

Recent research findings add to the growing body of evidence showing the beneficial role of dairy foods in managing weight.

The new study, published by Australian research organisation CSIRO in the journal Nutrients, looked at the effects of consuming dairy in people who were on a calorie-restricted diet.

The study collated findings from 27 trials looking at the effect of dairy consumption on weight, body fat mass and lean muscle mass in adults. It found participants who consumed more dairy also retained 75 per cent more lean mass (or muscle) compared to those consuming diets lower in dairy, which has important implications for weight management.

The Australian Health Survey showed adults are consuming an average of 1.5 servings of dairy, which is well below what the Australian Dietary Guidelines recommend for most age and gender groups - click here to read more.

In other news, a recent study by Mintel showed that more than three in five consumers in Ireland and Northern Ireland believe farmers are not being fairly paid for their milk.

The Irish Farmers Association (IFA) National Liquid Milk Chairman John Finn commented: "This suggests a level of understanding among consumers of the economic difficulties encountered by milk producers.

“Dairies and retailers must now do what it takes to ensure liquid milk producers receive significantly increased premiums and payments over the next winter months to allow them cover their costs.” - Read more.

The Tractor Ploughing Manual

The Tractor Ploughing Manual

After a general introduction to the types of plough and how to set them up, the manual deals with the main classes of competitive tractor ploughing: vintage mounted and trailed; world-type conventional ploughing; and reversible ploughing. The handbook also includes the Society of Ploughmen rules, a glossary and a short history of ploughs. Among the 200 illustrations there are over 150 colour photographs specially commissioned to show in detail good practices as well as faults and how to correct them. Author Brian Bell, Britain’s leading farm machinery writer, has prepared the manual with the help of a number of ploughing experts including Ken Chappell, David Chappell and Peter Alderslade.
