Dairy margin program pays out for May losses
The Dairy Margin Coverage (DMC) program margin for May was $5.37/cwt., the lowest since July 2013 and 65 cents/cwt. lower than the margin for April. Still, projections show that June’s margin may see the highest jump since 2000, with a strong recovery in prices that should buoy margins through the rest of the year.
USDA proposes strengthened organic enforcement rule
The Organic Trade Assn. (OTA) welcomed the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s efforts to boost the integrity of the global organic market through its Strengthening Organic Enforcement proposed rule, which is soon to be published in the Federal Register.

Journal of Dairy Science ® Impact Factor increases to 3.333
JDS® ranks fifth by Impact Factor Among Agriculture, Dairy, and Animal Science journals   
                                                                      
According to new statistics released in Clarivate Analytics’ Journal Citation Reports ®, the Impact Factor for the Journal of Dairy Science (JDS) increased eight percent compared with last year. As a measure that quantifies the average number of citations over a specific period, the Impact Factor gives authors one tool to assess the quality of scientific journals. As such, the increase in JDS’s Impact Factor from 3.082 to 3.333 is significant for the journal.

“It gives me great satisfaction to see JDS continuing to grow and improve,” said Editor in Chief Paul Kononoff, PhD, of the University of Nebraska. “The volume of material published in the journal is remarkable, but it is even more gratifying to know that our increasing Impact Factor is a testament to the quality of our content. Our reviewers and section editors put in considerable effort to shaping that content to ensure JDS is an indispensable tool for all dairy scientists. This content not only has tremendous scientific impact but much of our content also contributes to the growth, improvement, and sustainability of the world’s dairy industries.”

An Impact Factor of 3.333 places JDS fifth out of 63 journals in the Agriculture, Dairy, and Animal Science category, where the median Impact Factor is 1.333. The journal published 20 percent of all articles in the category and had more than 53,000 citations in 2019 to content published in 2017 and 2018. The journal also received its highest 5-year Impact Factor (3.432), indicating that articles in JDS continue to be cited well beyond the immediate 2-year period following publication. In the Food Science and Technology category, where the median Impact Factor is 2.095, JDS is ranked 37th out of 139 journals.

The new rankings validate the journal’s claim as the leading peer-reviewed general dairy research journal in the world. For 18 consecutive years, JDS has been ranked in the top five by Impact Factor in the Agriculture, Dairy, and Animal Science category, demonstrating the journal’s consistent commitment to excellence in publishing peer-reviewed dairy science.

“We consider the Impact Factor to be a validation of the contributions JDS makes to the global community of dairy scientists,” Kononoff added. “And we are pleased that JDS continues to be the best resource for this material and are committed to continued growth and improvement of our publication.”

Eaglewood Resort & Spa

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM, previously known as NRC) anticipates the 2021 release the 8th revised edition of the “Nutrient Requirements of Dairy Cattle”, the world’s most highly cited reference on dairy cattle feeding.

This  40 th  Discover Conference  will focus on the scientific advancements in dairy cattle feeding used in revising the 2001 edition. NASEM subcommittee members will address the substantive changes in the nutrient requirements and the conceptual approaches used to make those changes.
