  • A New Era of Farm Employees: Farm Technicians vs. Farm Hands?

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published 9 months ago

    Traditional agricultural skills that made civilization possible are still alive and in use today. At the same time, hundreds of farm technician job listings across the US, and the rise of precision agriculture and software, clearly evidence the need for technologically-savvy farm technicians in the 21st century agricultural industry. It’s no surprise that tech-friendly millennials interested in farming are encouraged by these developments, which may make farming less labor intensive than in generations past. Technology may even be the antidote to a number of ills plaguing modern agriculture, which have led to a drastic decrease in the number of farms across the United States... Human application of herbicide is less preciseJohn, whose family operates a 400,000 acre sheep and cattle station in Northern South Australia, has seen an evolution of applied technology and farm employee labor...

    Soil Farmers of the Year 2018

    By Direct Driller Magazine

    Published 4 weeks ago

    FARM WALKS WITH THE SOIL FARMERS OF THE YEAR 2018The winners of the FCCT Soil Farmer of the Year competition opened their gates over four days and provided a veritable masterclass in managing soils. Spanning a range of soil types, management systems and enterprises, attending farmers gained insights into their award winning management and a better understanding as to why these farms had been picked as the top three in this year’s competition. The Soil Farmer of the Year Competition, now in its third year, is run by the Farm Carbon Cutting Toolkit and Innovation for Agriculture. The competition aims to find farmers and growers who are engaged with, and passionate about managing their soils in a way which supports productive agriculture, reduces greenhouse gas emissions and builds soil health, organic matter and ultimately, carbon... This cover crop was grazed by sheep and the benefits of grazing cover crops including the addition of beneficial biology through manure deposits to turbo charge the soil was discussed...

    Surviving a sick day as a small farmer

    By John Moody

    Published 8 months ago

    Sick days. Most occupations come with a set of them. Call in to get the day off. Get caught up later... For instance, set up two 300 gallon IBC totes instead of one tote or a few 50 gallon barrels to offer water to pigs, sheep, or similar animals...

    The Rise of The Organic Farm Market.

    By Robert Morgan

    Published 8 months ago

    It for centuries was known that cattle which grazed where volcanic dust had settled would become ill and lame:: The reason was their high fluoride intake... In milk samples of different cattle (cows, camels, sheep, and goats), free and bound fluoride forms and its total (free (F) + bound (Fs)) contents were measured by ion-selective electrode... The concentration of total fluoride in the milk samples of sheep, goats, cows, and camels were observed in the range of 1... The resulted data indicated that the concentration of fluoride was higher in the milk samples of smaller cattle (sheep and goat), as compared to cow and camel... The percentage values of bound fluoride in the milk samples of sheep, goats, and cows were found to be 6...

    EU Call for Proposals: Agri-Aqua Labs

    For the purpose of sub-topic A, the terms 'animal' and 'farm' apply to both terrestrial and aquatic animals. Research activities should generate experimental data to map out what part of farmed animal genomes are active (whether coding or regulatory), and under which circumstances, characterise the resulting phenotypes and assess how phenotypes are affected by genetic and epigenetic changes. Bioinformatic analyses should support identification of these functional and structural elements in genomes, and enable the development of tools for genotype to phenotype prediction. Work should also help to develop or extend terminologies (ontologies) to describe, represent and standardize annotation. Proposed projects should target one or more farmed animal species with high-quality genome assemblies (in particular cows, chicken, pigs, sheep, salmon and other relevant species), focussing on specific tissue panels, and address correlations between normal and abnormal situations.

    Dateline for submission: 11 September 2018 2018 17:00:00 (Brussels time)
