Study shows fetal sex can influence milk production A new study, co-authored by a Harvard scientist, offers the first-ever evidence that fetal sex can affect the amount of milk cows produce, a finding that could have major economic implications for U.S. dairy farmers. The study, which examined 2.4 million lactations by nearly 1.5 million dairy cows in the U.S., found that cows which gestated back-to-back daughters produce as much as 1,000 pounds more milk than those that give birth to...

Hill farming
2013-09-20 13:07:03

Hill farming involves using is a particular piece of land for grazing sheep and cattle. This form of farming is used particularly by the farmers of the UK in the higher elevations. Farmers generally do not have access to winter fodder for their cattle, therefore, sheep farms are typical for such areas. Due to this restricted access, farmers move the herds to lower elevations for feeding. These specific farms are found in the North and South-Western areas of England, as well as the...
