The transmission of disease-causing pathogens via feed ingredients has garnered a tremendous amount of study in recent years. With the specter of African Swine Fever in the minds of every U.S. pork producer, understanding the survivability of viral pathogens in a variety of vectors is critically important to adequate biosecurity on hog farms.Dr. Scott Dee is a veterinarian and research at Pipestone Applied Research. He and his colleagues have done as much or more study into the role feed ingredients play in virus transmission as anyone in the business. His most recent paper looked at a case study in which Senecavirus A was introduced into a historically-negative country via soybean meal imported from a positive country.In this episode we talk with Dr. Dee about the findings from this case study, how they apply to U.S. swine biosecurity efforts, and what veterinarians and producers need to do more generally to achieve what he describes as “next-generation biosecurity”.This episode of Feedstuffs in Focus is sponsored by Topigs Norsvin. Swine genetics company Topigs Norsvin is renowned for its innovative approach to implementing new technologies and its continuous focus on cost-efficient and sustainable pig production. Research, innovation, and dissemination of genetic improvements are the cornerstones of the company. Topigs Norsvin's approach of breeding pigs for enhanced, natural robustness to disease challenge is a viable solution for disease control.

This week Chrissy Wozniak discusses a new proposed rule by the SEC, with Mary-Thomas Hart, the Chief Counsel, Government Affairs at National Cattlemen's Beef Association.The National Cattlemen's Beef Association (NCBA) reiterated the need for a limited version of the Securities and Exchange Commission's (SEC) greenhouse gas disclosure rule following SEC Chairman Gary Gensler's testimony before the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking.  The SEC's greenhouse gas disclosure rule, proposed earlier this year, would require publicly traded companies to disclose their direct (scope 1), indirect/energy use (scope 2), and supply chain (scope 3) greenhouse gas emissions. The requirement to include scope 3 emissions would place a disproportionate burden on cattle producers whose beef is part of the supply chain for publicly traded restaurants and retailers. Additionally, the rule exposes individual producers to additional levels of legal liability.NCBA previously submitted technical comments on the rule and individual cattle producers sent over 7,406 emails to SEC commissioners and members of Congress expressing concern with rule. NCBA has encouraged the SEC to remove the requirement to disclose scope 3 emissions, which would lessen the burden on cattle producers.The National Cattlemen's Beef Association (NCBA) has represented America's cattle producers since 1898, preserving the heritage and strength of the industry through education and public policy.  As the largest association of cattle producers, NCBA works to create new markets and increase demand for beef.  Efforts are made possible through membership contributions.

Good afternoon, I'm _____ with today's episode of EZ News. **Tai-Ex opening ** The Tai-Ex opened down 68-points this morning from yesterday's close, at 14,602 on turnover of $2.6-billion N-T. The market closed marginally higher on Thursday, after Wall Street posted modest gains overnight. **Pig Carcass Found in Kinmen Tests Positive for African Swine Fever ** The Council of Agriculture has imposed a one-week ban on the transport of pork products from Kinmen to other parts of Taiwan. The move comes after a pig carcass that washed up on the outlying island tested positive for African Swine Fever. According to the Kinmen County government, a Coast Guard patrol found the carcass of a on the shoreline near Jinning Township's Housha Village. Disease control officials collected samples from the carcass, and then burned and buried it on site. Tests of those samples by the National Institute for Animal Health showed it had been infected with African Swine Fever. Animal health officials have been inspecting pig farms located within a 3-kilometer radius of where the carcass was found, but no trace of the disease has been found. The Kinmen County government says it's not unusual to find pig carcasses among garbage that occasionally washes ashore (上岸) in Kinmen, due to its close proximity to China. **US Judge Rejects DOJ Request to View MaraLago Material ** A federal Judge has rejected the US Justice Department's request to resume reviewing classified material it seized from former president Donald Trump's Mar a Lago home. The Florida court also appointed a neutral (中立) third party suggested by Trump's legal team to oversee the process. US correspondent Ira Spitzer has more. **Haiti Investigates Police Killings ** Haiti's National Police says it is investigating the recent slaying of three officers that it blames on gang members. The agency says a gang called ``Ti Makak,'', killed the officers Tuesday in Laboule, a largely gated community just south of Port-au-Prince. The area is also the site of recent turf wars (地盤爭奪) between gangs that have led to other killings in the area, including two journalists in January and a former senator who worked for the Ministry of Social Affairs and Labor in August. Police said Wednesday that they had opened an investigation into the killings of the officers. **Mexico Gov: Train Poses No Threat ot Skeleton ** Mexico's National Institute of Anthropology and History says a prehistoric human skeleton found recently in a flooded cave system along the country's Caribbean coast was actually registered by the institute in 2019 and will not be threatened by a nearby tourist train project. Earlier this week, archaeologist Octavio del Rio said he and fellow diver Peter Broger saw the shattered skull and skeleton partly covered by sediment (沉積物) in a cave. They reported it to the institute, which had not publicly spoken of the find until its statement Thursday. The institute says that scientific analysis has still not been carried out on the remains, but that it is 400 meters from the path of the government's Maya Train project and not threatened.

⚡ We can't limit ourselves to only humans and animals to fight diseases and cure illnesses. To cure diseases and illnesses, we need to understand how the environment, humans, and animals intersect. Professor Akebe explains, "We get that whole cycle that starts again. It [waste] leaves from our homes. It leaves from our hospitals. It gets into the treatment plants, gets into the river. It is used to irrigate our crops, goes back to the animals, and you see the whole vicious cycle continue. So that is where we now say that to solve that issue, we can't just limit ourselves to humans. We can't limit ourselves to animals. We can't limit ourselves to the environment. We need to have those three compartments coming together."⚡ The challenges of working as a microbiologist in a rural community. Having traveled to many of Africa's remote places, Professor Akebe believes that the continent's environment can expect a positive change in the future. He talks about what it's like working as a microbiologist in these rural communities: "The major challenge of working in a rural community is it limits, first of all, the quality; it doesn't compromise, but it limits based on the objective. It limits the quality of work you can do because you want to go cheaper. You have everything that you want, you know that you can get it, but it becomes a little expensive now because you can surround the facility, and so, you have to outsource."⚡ Giving back to the community by educating them. According to Professor Akebe, we need to help our communities understand our research. He says, "One of the things I'm doing now is that I'm working with one of my mentors in the US…and we are trying to see how to translate this whole concept of One Health and antimicrobial research and antimicrobial resistance into cartoons. We will translate them into cartoons so that even our kids who are watching TV can learn from that. So any form in which such messages can go out to the community, for me, is the best because I feel like it's unfair for the communities where we do research to not understand what we are doing."

Guests: Dr. Bill Weiss, The Ohio State UniversityCo-host: Dr. Clay Zimmerman and Dr. Glen AinesDiving into two recent Journal of Dairy Science publications, Dr. Bill Weiss, Emeritus Professor at Ohio State University is back again to discuss the latest ideas and trends in animal nutrition. Dr. Weiss highlights two papers published in the Journal of Dairy Science earlier this year, adding one is focused on production while the other highlights fermentation digestibility. One key point Dr. Weiss highlighted was the controversial discussion around supplementing molasses or sugar. 3:02Dr. Clay Zimmerman with Balchem also joined the evening discussion, adding that currently it is common to add a liquid sugar source for a certain level of sugar to optimize microbial protein synthesis. 6:02Diving into the first paper, Dr. Weiss suggested the positive response to molasses would be affected by the RDP (Ratio Degradable Protein), adding he believes this was a valid hypothesis. He went on to highlight fiber differences, digestibility measures and the impact of inputting the data into the NRC (National Research Council) old database. 9:09Analyzing a few key conclusions and surprises from the first production study, Dr. Weiss pointed out his thoughts on the milk efficiency components and intake digestibility results. 16:04On the 10-week intake study, Dr. Zimmerman noted the results showed cows were on a two-week covariate diet and then eight weeks on the treatment diet, plus adding in high moisture corn as a grain source. Additionally, he added the only key parameter that wasn't negatively affected by the increasing molasses was fat. 24:26In fact, Dr. Glen Aines with Balchem, who also joined in on the conversation, was surprised the journal cited about 42% of VFA's coming out of the molasses due to the belief it will produce less acidosis. 29:16In the second paper, Dr. Weiss mentioned the results of no impact to RDP (Ratio Degradable Protein) from the models. Dr. Weiss added if he expects the diets to be deficient in RDP, he would also expect increased intake and digestibility. 31:16No models are ever perfect, so analyzing the results from any study is essential. Dr. Aines reflected on key takeaways from the second paper, highlighting the different fermentation battens between the various treatments and microbial population shifts. 49:54Rounding out the conversation, Dr. Weiss closed suggesting the understanding that nothing works all the time and that's why replicating experiments is so important. 53:41If you want one of our new Real Science Exchange t-shirts, screenshot your rating, review, or subscription, and email a picture to anh.marketing@balchem.com.

Today's Ag Spotlight is on real American Heroes who help transition veterans from active service to agriculture. Tod Bunting is a retired Air Force major General – with over 30 years of service. He has devoted his post military life to veteran care. Also with us is Virgil Williams who is also a veteran and runs operations at Save Farm. SAVE Farms is a training farm for veterans of all eras and their families. A pathway to farming and healing. Americans celebrate Veterans Day on November 11 to honor our veterans' patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. While this day is a wonderful tribute, there are organizations who honor veterans every single day of the year. The SAVE Farm in Manhattan, KS., is one of them. The concept for the SAVE Farm  began nearly a decade ago, when retired Colonel Gary Lagrange and his daughter saw results from training beekeeping and providing therapy to soldiers at nearby Ft Riley. A non profit was formed by a diverse group of veterans, farm and ranch experts and educators.  With the help of organizations like The Nature Conservancy, and the Conservation Fund, the SAVE Farm is now a reality. It provides therapy as needed and hands-on teaching to veterans and transitioning service members through experienced professionals. They learn how to successfully and sustainably manage cropland, livestock animals, orchards, horticulture, and beekeeping. In 2020, SAVE celebrated a significant milestone - the purchase of 308-acres of farmland for future hands-on training. In 2021, the critical and life-changing work of the SAVE Farm received further support from John Deere through a donation of $200,000 to continue its collaboration with The Nature Conservancy and assist in the completion of training facilities.

An outbreak of zoonotic disease can have devastating economic and social consequences, as evidenced by the COVID-19 pandemic and increasing concern over monkeypox. Defined as a disease that has transitioned from a vertebrate animal to humans, zoonoses account for about 60% of known infectious diseases and 75% of new or emerging infectious diseases.   So, what can be done to limit the spread of these diseases and prevent the next pandemic?    In the latest episode in the CPHI Podcast Series, we hear from two companies – Chipsafer and SoundTalks - whose products use data analytics and AI to identify diseases in animals at the earliest indication. Chipsafer is a patented platform that detects and tracks anomalies in livestock behaviour, giving farmers earlier warning when disease breaks out in the herd. Joining us to break down how the platform works is Chipsafer's founder and CEO, Victoria Alonsoperez. Similarly, SoundTalks is a company that provides real-time health monitoring in pig herds, using microphones and sound analytics to detect possible outbreaks of respiratory disease.

Today's episode was recorded live at the American Dairy Science Association Annual Meeting in Kansas City, MO. Joining us are the ADSA research winners to discuss their projects. Lautaro Rostoll Cangiano joins us first.  Lautaro is the president of ADSA's Grad Student Division (GSD) program, which provides networking opportunities at the ADSA meetings in addition to professional development opportunities. Lautaro is wrapping up his time as president. Our next guests are Dr. Corwin Nelson from the University of Florida and Kari Estes with Balchem giving us the judge's perspective on the contest. Each student is judged on four major categories including presentation, design, how they interpret results and the data itself. Kari said the enthusiasm of the students was the highlight for her. Third, we have Alisson Da Mota Santos from Michigan State University who presented on the effectiveness of GnRH as a resynchronization tool in lactating dairy cows. The main findings of the study were that treatments were effective in synchronizing cows. Next up is Jackson Seminara from Cornell University, winner of the PhD poster contest, discussing calcium dynamics and associated patterns of milk constituents in early lactation multiparous Holsteins. Cows with different calcium dynamics have different milk profiles, and the healthy cows had higher levels of proteins. Ursula Abou-Rjeileh and Dr. Andres Contreras from Michigan State joined us as the winner of the masters oral presentation. The study topic was oleic acid limits lipolysis and improves mitochondrial function in adipose tissue from periparturient dairy cows. The focus on oleic acid was to determine how it minimizes body condition score loss. The results showed oleic acid increased insulin sensitivity, minimized lipid mobilization and improved mitochondrial function.Thaina Minela, also from Michigan State, spoke about her project. Her results showed that lactating cows inseminated following estrus have greater early pregnancy losses compared to the fertility program Double-Ovsynch. Thaina won the PhD oral competition. Our final guest is Conor McCabe from the University of California Davis. Conor just finished a term as Dairy Production Manager and is continuing on as the ADSA GSD Vice President in 2022. Looking forward, ADSA will be in Ottawa in 2023 and wants to look at ADSA as more than just a place for students to present their research.

Today's episode is hosted live at the American Dairy Science Association Annual Meeting. It's the first in our three-part series from the ADSA meetings where we are featuring graduate and post-doc students and their research. We have confirmed the future of the dairy research industry is bright hands with the next generation of leaders we had the opportunity to interview.Effects of maternal dietary rumen-protected choline supplementation during late gestation on calf growth and metabolism.Joining us is Turner Swartz from Michigan State University discussing his poster on the effects of maternal dietary rumen-protected choline during late gestation. In general during the study, calves born to pre-natal treated cows showed lower amounts of oxidative stress and reduced inflammation. Studies on these calves ended at 21 days, but it is possible if the study had continued through weaning, that the choline supplementation could have resulted in better calf growth. Additionally, cows that received choline produced 80% more colostrum than the control group, without diluting the IGG's. For more details, view the abstract summary here: https://balchem.com/animal-nutrition-health/wp-content/uploads/sites/3/2022/06/5-Effects-of-maternal-dietary-rumen-protected-choline-supplementation-during-late-gestation-on-calf-growth-and-metabolism.pdfChanges in plasma and milk choline metabolite concentrations in response to the provision of various rumen-protected choline prototypes in lactating cows.Joining us is Tanya France and Dr. Joe McFadden from Cornell University discussing her research on the effects of choline. The goal of the study was to define the best rumen-protected choline technologies that enhance choline bioavailability. The study included two different experiments featuring mid and late-lactation cows. Varying doses of choline chloride were given as a ruminal bolus to the cow and measured the plasma in milk over the course of 36 hours. For more details, view the abstract summary here: https://balchem.com/animal-nutrition-health/wp-content/uploads/sites/3/2022/06/3-Changes-in-plasma-and-milk-choline-metabolite-concentrations-in-response-to-the-provision-of-various-rumen-protected-choline-prototypes-in-lactating-cows.pdfRumen-protected choline (RPC) reduces hepatic triacylglycerol content by increasing hepatic triglyceride-rich lipoprotein secretion.Joining us is Usman Arshad from the University of Florida discussing his research on choline reducing hepatic triacylglycerol content. The study analyzes the effects of choline on reducing fatty liver at the cellular level, much more granular than studies done in the past. In the study the effect of choline was isolated, which proved that choline is a lipotropic agent that should be fed with other agents such as methionine. In the experiment, feeding choline resulted in fewer cows with fatty liver, which means better health and milk production. For more details, view the abstract summary here: https://balchem.com/animal-nutrition-health/wp-content/uploads/sites/3/2022/06/1-Rumen-protected-choline-RPC-influences-hepatic-metabolism-during-induction-of-fatty-liver.pdfhttps://balchem.com/animal-nutrition-health/wp-content/uploads/sites/3/2022/06/2-Rumen-protected-choline-RPC-reduces-hepatic-triacylglycerol-content-by-increasing-hepatic-triglyceride-rich-lipoprotein-secretion.pdfRumen protected choline (RPC) influences hepatic metabolism during induction of fatty liver.Joining us is Usman Arshad from the University of Florida discussing his research on how rumen-protected choline influences metabolism. For the study, cows were induced with fatty liver via caloric restriction, then fed them a diet high in fatty acids. Then they looked at triacylglycerides in the blood and collected lymphatic fluid. The study found that triacylglycerol levels were increased in both the blood and lymphatic system which suggests that choline increases digestibility of nutrients concurrent with enhanced absorption of triacylglycerols. The study also found that choline reduces inflammation in cows, which could result in less mastitis or matritus. Choline could actually impact the immune function of the cows. For more details, view the abstract summary here: https://balchem.com/animal-nutrition-health/wp-content/uploads/sites/3/2022/06/1-Rumen-protected-choline-RPC-influences-hepatic-metabolism-during-induction-of-fatty-liver.pdfIncreasing dose of prepartum rumen protected choline: Effects on milk production in Holstein dairy cows and Increasing dose of prepartum rumen protected choline: Effects on energy and nitrogen metabolism in Holstein dairy cowsJoining us is Dr. Henry Holdorf from the University of Wisconsin-Madison discussing his research on postpartum and prepartum rumen protected choline. These studies focused on higher producing cows, as they were second or greater lactation cows. The results of feeding rumen-protected choline still created an increase in milk production. While the cows had high intakes, they were very typical in size for a midwest dairy cow. An area of interest that requires more study is if choline impacts mammary gland function or rumen health and supply of nutrients. Considering carry-over effects that happen after stopping choline supplementations makes it a subject requiring more study. For more details, view the abstract summaries here: https://balchem.com/animal-nutrition-health/wp-content/uploads/sites/3/2022/06/7-Increasing-dose-of-prepartum-rumen-protected-choline-Effects-on-milk-production-in-Holstein-dairy-cows.pdfhttps://balchem.com/animal-nutrition-health/wp-content/uploads/sites/3/2022/06/8-Increasing-dose-of-prepartum-rumen-protected-choline-Effects-on-energy-and-nitrogen-metabolism-in-Holstein-dairy-cows.pdfIncreasing dose of prepartum rumen-protected choline: Effects of in utero exposure on growth and feed efficiency in Holstein dairy calves.Joining us is Dr. Henry Holdorf from the University of Wisconsin-Madison discussing his research on increasing the dose of rumen-protected choline and its effect on growth and feed efficiency via in utero exposure. The results of the study showed that higher doses of rumen-protected choline in the first two weeks of life increased the average daily gains and feed efficiency than the control group. For this experiment the choline was mixed into the ration, so the intake of choline by the cow was dependent on her dry matter intake. An important takeaway is that there are additional benefits for postpartum cows and their calves than what is established with choline. It's a chance to help young, vulnerable animals. For more details, view the abstract summary here: https://balchem.com/animal-nutrition-health/wp-content/uploads/sites/3/2022/06/9-Increasing-dose-of-prepartum-rumen-protected-choline-Effects-of-in-utero-exposure-on-growth-and-feed-efficiency-in-Holstein-dairy-calves.pdfIncreasing dose of prepartum rumen-protected choline: Effects of in utero exposure on Angus x Holstein beef calves and Effects of in utero choline exposure on growth and metabolism in weaned Angus X Holstein calves.Joining us is Dr. Henry Holdorf and Dr. Billy Brown from the University of Wisconsin-Madison discussing their research on in utero choline exposure in crossbred calves. The study by Dr. Holdorf fed choline mixed into the daily ration to prepartum cows and resulted in the male holstein/angus calves having improved rates of gain from three to eight weeks of age. It was linearly increasing with the increase of choline ingested by the cow. The results were not the same for female calves. Dr. Brown continued the study after weaning of the calves by weighing them monthly and discovered there was a tendency of increased body weight, hip and wither height. For producers, this allows them to gain value on calves right out of the gate, as the average difference in growth was approximately 30 pounds difference between the control group and the highest dosage of choline. For more details, view the abstract summaries here: https://balchem.com/animal-nutrition-health/wp-content/uploads/sites/3/2022/06/11-Effects-of-in-utero-choline-exposure-on-growth-and-metabolism-in-weaned-Angus-X-Holstein-calves.pdfhttps://balchem.com/animal-nutrition-health/wp-content/uploads/sites/3/2022/06/10-Increasing-dose-of-prepartum-rumen-protected-choline-Effects-of-in-utero-exposure-on-Angus-x-Holstein-beef-calves.pdfEffects of dietary rumen-protected choline supplementation during an intramammary lipopolysaccharide challenge in periparturient dairy cattle.Joining us is Turner Swartz from Michigan State University discussing the effects of choline supplementation. The hypothesis of the study is that choline supplementation increases milk yield due to a reduction in inflammation. To prove this, cows were put into inflammation with a lipopolysaccharide (LPS) challenge, which traditionally would decrease milk yield. The study found the choline response was greater than the LPS response. Choline increased milk production by 3kg per cow per day. The LPS was reducing production by 2kgs per cow per day.  For more details, view the abstract summary here: https://balchem.com/animal-nutrition-health/wp-content/uploads/sites/3/2022/06/4-Effects-of-dietary-rumen-protected-choline-supplementation-during-an-intramammary-lipopolysaccharide-challenge-in-periparturient-dairy-cattle.pdfIf you want one of our new Real Science Exchange t-shirts, screenshot your rating, review, or subscription, and email a picture to anh.marketing@balchem.com.
