Commonly Asked Questions About BSE in Products Regulated by FDA's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN)
Mad Cow Disease is the commonly used name for Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE), a slowly progressive, degenerative, fatal disease affecting the central nervous system of adult cattle. Since 1990, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has conducted aggressive surveillance of the highest risk cattle going to slaughter in the United States, in which 10,000- 20,000 animals per year have been tested.

Pre-hearing Brief Submitted to the United States International Trade Commission
Conditions of Competition for Milk Protein Products in the U.S. Market The objective of this brief is to provide an assessment of the protein content of U.S. trade in dairy products and their potential impact on farm-gate milk prices. More specifically, this analysis will focus on:
1. An overview of U.S. trade in dairy products
2. A new method to track protein use throughout the U.S. dairy industry
3. Possible impacts of protein imports on farm-gate milk prices, and
4. The relationship between Milk Protein Concentrate imports and removals under the Dairy Price Support Program.


Changes in the U.S. Pork Industry 1990-1995
NAHMS first national study of the swine industry, the 1990 National Swine Survey, provided a snapshot of animal health and management that would serve as a baseline from which to measure industry changes in animal health and management. NAHMS conducted the National Swine Survey in 18 states with a target population of operations with at least one sow. The sample represented 95 percent of the U.S. hog population. National estimates generated from this study are reported in Morbidity/Mortality and Health Management of Swine in the United States (November 1991).

Biosecurity in the Beef Cattle Operation
Biosecurity is used to describe programs for preventing the introduction of pathogens considered potentially harmful to the health and well being of the herd. A pathogen is defined as any infectious agent that causes disease. Examples of various pathogens are viruses (foot and mouth disease; bovine viral diarrhea virus - BVDV), bacteria ( Brucella abortus brucellosis; Mycobacterium paratuberculosis - Johneís Disease), and prions (bovine spongiform encephalopathy - BSE; scrapie in sheep). Biosecurity on a

Many people start a meat goat operation with little financial planning. Goats are enjoyable animals. Itís often fun to go on expeditions to buy a few, and they multiply. When the realization hits that you are spending substantial time caring for a few goats and selling surplus kids, itís awfully tempting to try to justify it by expanding into a commercial operation.

Why Ventilate Animal Buildings?
Proper ventilation of buildings often is the most overlooked and misunderstood management practice of the livestock producer. You select genetically sound stock, purchase good quality feed, supply a well-balanced ration, and provide shelter. What else is there to raising livestock?

Using Agri-Food and Municipal Wastes for the Co-generation of Energy and Nutrients in Sustainable Close-Loop Systems
The intensive livestock, dairy and hog industries are very important to farmers, industry and provincial economies. Some factors restricting the growth of the animal industry relates to environmental and social issues. Animal waste disposal, GHG emission, nutrient management, and odor are the main environmental concerns.

Livestock, Dairy, and Poultry Outlook
Better Supply-Demand Balance Expected in 2004 Dairy Markets Overall, dairy markets are expected to be better balanced in 2004. Demand is projected to grow more than milk production, commercial stocks are expected to be smaller, and commercial exports of nonfat dry milk might substantially trim the recent surplus. However, this basic improvement might not generate higher farm milk prices.

The Effect on the United States Dairy Industry of Removing Current Federal Regulations
The objective of this work is to provide a layer-by-layer dissection of the effect that each current major federal dairy policies has on the dairy industry. This approach allows for the measurement of both the effect of one piece of current policy and the effect that combinations of current policy have on the dairy industry.

FAPRI 2003 U.S. Baseline Briefing Book
Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute (FAPRI) Each year, FAPRI prepares a set of baseline projections that provide information about the outlook for agricultural markets, farm program spending, farm income, and a variety of other indicators. This baseline then serves as the point of comparison for analyses of alternative policy options.

Bacterial Diseases of Poultry - Excluding Respiratory Diseases
Bacteria are microscope living organisms. All bacteria are not detrimental to animal health. In fact, many bacteria are beneficial and necessary for such processes, etc. Classification of bacteria into species is done so disease producting organisms may be separated from those that are harmless or beneficial.

Practical Ways of Alleviating Heat Stress in Swine and Poultry
Heat affects the health and the productive and reproductive performances of animals. Thus, any method to eliminate heat and lessen its negative effect should be implemented. Provision of cool, clear water is probably the most important thing livestock producers can do to help animals overcome heat stress.

Biological warfare, bioterrorism, biodefence and the biological and toxin weapons convention
Biological warfare is the intentional use of micro-organisms, and toxins, generally, of microbial, plant or animal origin to produce disease and/or death in humans, livestock and crops. The attraction for bioweapons in war, and for use in terroristic attacks is attributed to their low production costs, The easy access to a wide range of disease-producing biological agents, their non-detection by routine security systems, and their easy transportation from one location to another are other attractive features (Atlas, 1998).
