Cultivation of plants and animals to provide useful products
Does the average citizen actually need to care about how their food is produced? This is the central question Australian author and journalist, Gabrielle Chan, set out to answer. Her latest book, “Why you should give a f*ck about farming” details her firm conclusion that, yes, if you eat food, you should in fact care about agriculture. While the old days of agriculture as the top contributor to GDP are over for most Western countries, Gabrielle argues the future of food and farming is becoming increasingly important for a raft of other reasons such as climate change and food security.In this episode, she talks about:Her own introduction to farming, including what shocked her when she first moved from the city to marry a farmer.The emergence of ‘food tribes', where people view what they eat as part of their identity.How politics is failing agriculture by not having a “backyard plan,” a strategy to value natural capital and make considered decisions about land use.The role of agtech in bringing outsiders into agriculture, reinvigorating rural communities, and re-establishing connections between consumers and farmers.For more information and resources, visit our website

Guests: Dr. Mark Hanigan, Virginia TechDr. Jeff Firkins, The Ohio StateDr. Hélène Lapierre, Agriculture and Agri-Food CanadaOur Dairy NRC series of Real Science webinars was very well received and tonight we are talking about the chapter on protein and amino acids.Dr. Mark Hanigan discussed the sections his team worked on in the new NRC. First thing was updating the feed library. After the feed library was updated they identified other updates like the microbial equations and RUP equations, adjustability data for the RUP and for microbes as well as composition of the microbes. (6:49)Dr. Jeff Firkens discussed the difference with the amino acid profile by accounting for protozoa flow which is important for lysine, because protozoa have a lot more lysine than bacteria. So they are attributing microbial protein sources as better sources of lysine. (22:02)Dr. Hélène Lapierre discussed their updates to metabolic fecal output and urinary endogenous output since the previous data dated back to 1977. The updated data showed a large change. Endogenous urine output was twice as much as it was previously, and fecal output was much lower than it was previously. (36:36)Dr. Mark Hanigan discussed the new milk protein yield equation and used the analogy of an assembly line. Each nutrient is a separate contributor to the assembly line and without a certain nutrient that assembly line will slow down. Once a little more of that nutrient is provided the assembly line speeds back up. (47:33)Dr. Hélène Lapierre discussed efficiency and working with cows of the past, and their published data, to provide the specifications for cows of the future that are producing more. So the scaling factor should be based on current herd averages. (58:33)As a reminder, we will continue breaking down the new 2021 8th Revised Edition of the Nutrient Requirements of Animals in podcasts releasing over the coming weeks.

If you've got a friend in a ‘health' multi-level marketing company then it is likely you've heard that the amount of nutrition in a single apple is no longer what it used to be 50 years ago… to get the same amount of nutrition as you did back then, it's likely you need closer to a kilo of mainstream supermarket apples. However supplements too have to come from somewhere and so instead of using the narrow-minded western thinking of solving everything with more, bigger, better, capitalist thinking, a new though it… how about we go back to the source and get the food right, get the food healthy and the way to do that is to level up the Soil - like functional nutrition and medical thinking, find the cause and fix that!In This Episode We Cover:What exactly is regenerative farming and why is it importantHow diverse ecosystems affect the nutritional status of our body'sHow you can ask questions to change your behaviour and vote with your dollar for a better world that equates to better health for you***Join the Busy Mum's Facebook Group here: https://mattylansdown.com/BusyMothersFBgroup ***--SOCIAL MEDIA--RAY ‘REGEN RAY' MILIDONI Website: www.farmingsecrets.comSecrets of the Soil Podcast: https://open.spotify.com/show/0AZx7EoUdRMXgceWI8Se12?si=hLnHKr10QZCf1Iwh1J7Mrw&dl_branch=1Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/regen.ray/--MATTY LANSDOWNJoin the Busy Mum's Facebook Group: https://mattylansdown.com/BusyMothersFBgroupInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/mattylansdown/--Thanks for checking out the show.

Unless otherwise noted, all Web addresses mentioned were functional as of 10-15-21. TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the week of October 18, 2021. SOUND – ~8 sec This week, those abrupt stops to the sounds of the Roanoke River, Gray Tree Frogs, and a household water faucet set the stage for an episode marking the observance of “Imagine a Day without Water,” to be held this year on October 21. We start with some music designed to help you do such imagining. Have a listen for about 40 seconds. MUSIC - ~42 sec – instrumental You've been listening to “Flow Stopper,” by Torrin Hallett, a graduate student at the Yale School of Music. Besides flowing rivers, calling frogs, and household faucets, almost any aspect of life could be affected by a lack of water, including the biological structures and functions that make life possible. Increasing the awareness of water uses and needs is a goal of the “Imagine a Day Without Water” campaign. According to the event's Web site, the effort is, quote, “a national education campaign that brings together diverse stakeholders to highlight how water is essential, invaluable, and in need of investment,” unquote. The event is part of the “Value of Water Campaign,” focused on water infrastructure needs. These campaigns are coordinated by the US Water Alliance, a non-profit organization made up of people from water utilities, government, business, other non-profits, communities, and research establishments. Worldwide, billions of people don't have to imagine lacking good water. According to the United Nations, as of 2019 over 2 billion people lacked access to safely managed drinking water, and over 4 billion people lacked access to safely managed sanitation. In the United States, the American Society of Civil Engineers' water infrastructure “Report Card” for 2021 estimated over $1 trillion needed through 2029 for drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater, with $434 billion of that not yet funded. And in Virginia, the Department of Environmental Quality's 2020 “Water Resources Report” identified several water challenges, including maintaining groundwater availability over the next 50 years; coordinating water planning among localities; gauging the impact of unpermitted water withdrawals; understanding stream water quality and ecology; and investing in water-resources personnel, science, and education. Water is fundamental for energy, commerce, industry, agriculture, aquatic and terrestrial life, and human biology. Imagining a day without water—and learning about where water's lacking—can help us envision and work toward well-watered future days. Thanks to Torrin Hallett for composing this week's music for Virginia Water Radio, and we close with another listen to the last 10 seconds of “Flow Stopper.” MUSIC - 10 sec – instrumental SHIP'S BELL Virginia Water Radio is produced by the Virginia Water Resources Research Center, part of Virginia Tech's College of Natural Resources and Environment.

Researchers analyzed spotted skunk DNA and found that rather than the four skunk species previously recognized by science, there are actually seven. Referred to as the “acrobats of the skunk world” these small carnivores use impressive handstands to warn predators that a noxious spray is coming their way. The plains spotted skunk (included among them) is in significant decline, but figuring out the different species lineages may inform and aid conservation efforts.

This week's interview is with Brian Hammons, CEO and President of Hammons Black Walnuts — the country's largest commercial producer of finished black walnuts. Black walnuts, of course, are a wild food very different from the English Walnuts most of us are familiar with, and sourced from nut trees native to North America. Each year Hammons buys millions of pounds of Black Walnuts from foragers all over the middle of the country, through an innovative network of buying and hulling stations they set up each harvest season. Brian is passionate about Black Walnuts, just like his father, and his father's father were. He and his company embody the noble, but not so common traits, of hard work and work ethic, good stewardship, family tradition, and transparent business practices. And all of that comes through in the way he talks about what they do at Hammons. We often quote the writer and foraging icon Sam Thayer here on the show. He talks about what he calls “Ecoculture” as a more ancient and sustainable alternative to Agriculture. He's quick to point out that with the right shifts in landscape management, viable wild food sheds are possible on a scale we can't really imagine at present. To us, Hammons represents a company that's been doing precisely that — creating a viable market for a wild food, sustainably, for decades. Not only that, but it's a win-win-win, because as the customer gets a healthy, sustainable wild food, Hammons prospers and so do the foragers who supply them with their raw materials. Supporting companies like theirs moves us towards a new — or perhaps old — way of engaging the landscape for our food needs. It's exciting to us, and it opens up a world of possibilities! Here's to happy foraging! View full show notes, including links to resources from this episode here: https://www.wild-fed.com/podcast/104

We hear reaction to the Government's solution to the current problems facing pig farmers: 6 month visas for foreign butchers. Farming unions had called for a 12 month 'Covid recovery visa' to allow more workers from abroad into jobs in the food supply chain, or for the Government to relax language rules for foreign butchers working here, but all that was rejected in favour of temporary visas. This week Radio 4 dedicated a day to the scientist. As part of that Anna Hill went to the Research Park in Norwich to hear about the latest in agri-science innovations. The National Trust and Forestry Commission say they are considering what to do with the bans on trail hunting on their land, following the conviction of the Director of the Master of Foxhounds Association for encouraging and assisting people to evade the ban on fox hunting.
