Michigan State University researchers Lorraine Sordillo and Ángel Abuelo, both in the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine, have been awarded a four-year, $500,000 grant for their work with dairy calves.
Earlier this week a coalition of Nebraska citizens joined together to push against large livestock operations in the state. If the petition is followed, it would put a temporary stop to CAFOs in the state.
The amount and composition of milk produced by dairy cows appears to be more regulated by internal, annual biological rhythms than by environmental factors such as heat and humidity, according to Penn State researchers.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed a rule change that would make it clear air emissions reporting for animal waste is not required for livestock operations under current regulations.
