West Bound Threat: The Journey of Bluetongue
Emerging in South Africa over 125 years ago, the bluetongue virus spilled into the Mediterranean basin and spread North beyond the tropic and subtropic regions until it reached European shores. Now, BTV6, the EU's third strain has been detected in Holland. Are these outbreaks a sign of things to come? asks Adam Anson, reporting for TheCattleSite.
Economic Impacts of Regulatory Responses to BSE

Market Cow and Bull Management and Marketing
Surveys of Mississippi cow-calf operations indicate that mature cows and bulls make up 85 per cent and 89 per cent of the cattle in breeding herds on operations with fewer than 100 head and greater than 250 head, respectively, says Jane A. Parish, Justin D. Rhinehart and John D. Anderson. This feature was published by the Mississippi State University Extension Service.

Beef: World Markets and Trade
For the first time in 9 years, global production is forecast to fall albeit less than 1 per cent (295,000 tons) as modest increases in Brazil, China and India were more than offset by declines in the EU-27, Argentina, Australia and Russia, reports the United States Department of Agriculture Foreign Agricultural Service.
