It is no longer sufficient to simply claim a low carbon footprint for your livestock production system or animal feed. This needs to be supported by repeatable, measurable and verifiable evidence. Alltech E-CO2 has developed the Feeds EA™ model to help feed manufacturers and producers globally measure and lower the carbon footprint of their feed.
Arla Foods will build a state-of-the-art commercial dairy farm in Northern Nigeria to support local milk production.
Nutritional strategies to preserve dairy performance under heat stress should focus on supporting nutrient utilization by optimizing diet digestion, while preserving rumen function. In this context, the rumen specific yeast S. cerevisiae CNCM I-1077 — demonstrated to improve both nutrient digestion and rumen efficiency — has been shown to effectively alleviate the toll of heat stress on dairy production and improve rumination behavior.
Heat stress impacts the performance and well-being of all ruminants. This was first clearly demonstrated with large epidemiological studies in dairy cows (Burgos and Collier, 2011), indicating short-term production losses and longer-term welfare issues.
Tyson Fresh Meats, the beef and pork subsidiary of Tyson Foods, joined U.S. CattleTrace program that focuses on animal disease traceability. Tyson Fresh Meats is the first U.S. meat company to become a beef processor member in the organization.
