Pooled milk may be used for FMD surveillance

A case study undertaken by scientists at The Pirbright Institute in the U.K. is the first to confirm that milk obtained from in-line milk samplers on a large-scale dairy farm can be used to detect circulating foot and mouth disease virus (FMDV) in cattle.

New patent-pending process called FMD vaccine 'breakthrough'

When it comes to livestock, foot and mouth disease virus (FMDV) is one of the most devastating picornavirus on the planet, according to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security  Science & Technology Directorate  (S&T), which recently filed a patent application titled “Modified Picornavirus 3C Proteases and Methods Thereof” with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).

U.S. food inflation rate registers 4% increase

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported this week that the U.S. food inflation rate rose another 0.7% in May, marking a 4% increase in the rate over the past year.

The effects of COVID-19 continued to show in the data, with the index of food consumed at home rising another 1% during the month of May. Unlike the broad increase seen in April, BLS said the May increase was driven mostly by a 3.7% rise in the index for meats, poultry, fish and eggs. The beef index, in particular, increased 10.8% in May -- its largest ever monthly increase.


ADSA News and Happenings
Special Message from ADSA President
I am deeply saddened and disturbed by recent events in the United States. My heart breaks for the family of George Floyd and the many others who have suffered as a result of racial injustice. As an organization, we oppose all forms of racial discrimination and social injustice. Together, we stand united with colleagues and friends who are hurt, harmed, or grieving during this very difficult time in our communities.

As dairy scientists, we are committed to applying our talents and knowledge to fulfill the economic, nutritive, and health requirements of all people, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, or ability. ADSA's core values of integrity, objectivity, open-mindedness, inclusiveness, and commitment have never been more important than they are today.

This deeply painful moment compels us to recommit to enhancing diversity among our ranks and ensuring an inclusive community. We are in a unique position to lead by example as the wider scientific community strives to expand its racial, ethnic, gender, and generational diversity. We must work to ensure equitable opportunities for our Black and underrepresented minority colleagues in our association and within the wider dairy science profession.

Though humbled by the recognition that any actions that we take are small steps in this long journey, I am committed to the challenge. I welcome your participation and feedback on what we can do better to reinforce ADSA's core values of open-mindedness, integrity, and inclusiveness.

Sincerely,
Rafael Jimenez-Flores
ADSA President, 2019-2020
