PoultryCast update for March 26, 2009, Looking to the Future with Lowell Catlett and Current Economic Morass

Update for March 26th, 2009

Legislation introduced in Congress could be detrimental to the health and well-being of pigs, increase pork producers’ production costs and the price consumers pay for pork and jeopardize public health. The bill, sponsored by Rep. Louise Slaughter, Democrat from New York, would ban the use in livestock of animal health products that prevent or control diseases.

Washington issues, phase feeding and bacterial rinse effectiveness are all part of the recent PoultryCast program lineup. Stay in touch with the front-burner issues.

"If you imagine in your mind, the irrigated agriculture of California you probably can see a large valve sticking out of the ground with a wheel on top situated in the middle of a massive field with deep furrows. As the valve is turned, water gushes out into the furrows, flooding them to provide water for the crops. Alternatively, you might see large water guns irrigating the fields with booming sprays similar to a lawn sprinkler on steriods. The way of the future will require a much more efficient approach if water use to produce crops in California is to be sustained." Read more.
