Nutrigenomics – The game changer for animal agriculture

first_imgWhen it comes to “game changers,” the dairy industry has seen its fair share.The science behind creating a gallon of milk continues to change rapidly, thanks to new technologies, and with the push for efficient and profitable operations in the current marketplace, nutrigenomics is today’s game changer producers need to consider.advertisementadvertisement Kate Jacques, director of nutrition at animal health and nutrition company Alltech , spoke to more than 500 progressive beef and dairy producers at Alltech’s Global 500 event in December.Nutrigenomics, the study of how diet affects the gene expression, is something Jacques said will change how the agricultural world thinks about nutrition.Jacques held up a small gene chip for the audience. “There are a very large number of genes that can be measured at once in this small chip, allowing biologists to measure animal responses to diet at the gene level,” Jacques explained. “We need to know a lot more about how all of this works if we expect to get more meat and more milk out of our animals.”All cells have a complete set of chromosomes with identical genes, but only a fraction of these genes are expressed resulting in protein production. The gene chip gives scientists a way to measure which genes are activated to produce proteins in response to specific nutrient regimens.advertisementJacques said this newfound ability to observe which genes are affected by nutrition has the potential to revolutionize our approach to managing animal nutrition.It marks a shift in industry mindset from simply getting more nutrients into the animal to understanding the degree nutrients affect animal production at the cell and tissue level.Scientists have found nutrients are “gene switches” that regulate bio-functions in animals. With this precise science, researchers can now find solutions that will improve animal performance and product quality.“It’s not the genetics, health, environment or nutrition alone that is limiting, it’s how they interact and how we develop solutions based on those interactions,” Jacques said.Gene chip technology will also have a large effect on traditional animal testing. This new technology offers economic efficiency for producers since the chip acts as a library that can be used to answer numerous difficult questions more quickly than ongoing, expensive field tests.Jacques said more scientists are also realizing it’s not only which nutrients are fed to animals that make a difference, but also the timing as to when animals receive those nutrients.advertisementFetal programming is nothing new to the human or animal sciences, but taking the epigenetic data – transferable and heritable changes on gene expression from outside the DNA sequence – and learning how to use nutrition to the producers’ advantage provides a new opportunity for improving feed efficiency and growth rates.“Genetic advances have given us better animals, but it is gene expression that drives performance and profits,” Jacques said. “Nutrigenomics research is key to narrowing genetics and nutritional gaps, and in turn, will redefine our understanding of nutritional requirements.” PDAmy Schutte is Alltech Idaho’s territory marketing coordinator.

Harley-Davidson and Indian Motorcycles Slapped with Huge Import Tariffs

first_imgImage source: Brian J. Nelson In the latest trade wars with the U.S., the European Union (EU) has just retaliated against American President Donald Trump’s decision to levy new import taxes on steel and aluminium from Europe. A hefty 25% tariff will be put in place for the American-made bikes, including a whole list of other American-made products.The EU had threatened reprisals against the U.S., who adopted the new tariffs earlier this month by adding a 25% tariff on imported steel and 10% on imported aluminium.The European nations unanimously supported the plan last week. The European Commission is due to meet later today. They have so far listed 10 pages full of American products. As for motorcycles, the tariff is worded as:Motorcycles and cycles fitted with an auxiliary motor, with or without sidecar. With reciprocating internal combustion piston engine of a cylinder capacity exceeding 500cc but not exceeding 800cc.Motorcycles and cycles fitted with an auxiliary motor, with or without sidecar. With reciprocating internal combustion engine of a cylinder capacity exceeding 800cc.Which means any bike from the US that’s bigger than 500cc will be subject to the new tax.This does not bode well especially for Harley-Davidson who are being hit hard by low sales in America and has been depending on international sales. Indian Motorcycles, on the other hand, had been performing well on all counts but this ruling will no doubt hit them hard, also.But it isn’t only bad news from Europe, as India had also slammed US motorcycles above 800cc with a 50% duty, as a retaliation against the U.S. who had also levied a 25% tariff on Indian steelThe U.S. tariffs are part of President Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” campaign which seeks to protect the country’s industries.Yes, you can say it in Trump’s voice: “This YUGE!”–Ads– The victims include Harley-Davidson and Indian Motorcycles. The EU will levy heavy tariffs against U.S.-made products. The tariffs are a retaliation against the U.S. adding tariffs on imported steel by 25%.last_img read more

Fifth Inning Fallout Leads to Royals Dominating Indians 12-5; Three Takeaways from the Loss

first_img Matt Loede The Indians and Royals did battle on a beautiful Saturday afternoon in Kansas City, and it looked for awhile like the Tribe would be back on track after a one-day hiccup.Then the Royals came to bat in the bottom of the fifth.In one half inning all the good feeling the Indians and starter Carlos Carrasco built went away quickly, as KC put up a six spot enroute to a 12-5 win over the Indians for their second straight loss.It’s also third loss in four games for the Indians, sending them back to 28-26 on the season, and for now 1.5 back of the Twins for the top spot in the AL Central.As best as we can here’s three takeaways from this latest awful setback, as the team will hopefully put the last two days aside and get ready to salvage the finale of the three-game set Sunday in KC.

Mino Raiola ‘already knows’ what Paul Pogba wants to do, trouble…

first_imgWhen Henrikh Mkhitaryan was trying to convince Borussia Dortmund to let him leave for Manchester United, there was talk in the German media of Raiola upturning furniture as he made clear to BVB that the transfer had to happen.Then, after the Armenian failed to show his best form often enough at Old Trafford, Raiola making sure the player got the most out of his exit only served to hold up the Alexis Sanchez swap.With talk around the future of Paul Pogba, and a potential desire for a Real Madrid move, Marca have obviously picked up on the case.Jose Felix Diaz, their editor in chief, has published a column this weekend which is likely to be better informed than most… at least when it comes to the Spanish end of the story.He claims that Raiola ‘already knows’ what Pogba wants to do… and that’s leave Manchester United and sign for Real Madrid.Raiola himself has held a similar opinion for a while and has been trying to find a new destination.The problem for Madrid interest is that Manchester United aren’t so keen and it would therefore take a huge amount of money, perhaps bigger than Real Madrid would be prepared to pay for the player.Should Raiola choose to attack the furniture at Manchester United’s offices, it’s probably not going to go down too well.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

‘Contacts intensifying’ for Tottenham defender – Club could contact player’s father…

first_imgOn Thursday, it was believed the Serie A side could reach out once more ‘in the next few days’ to see if Spurs would be willing to do a deal, and now, Il Tempo reckon it could be ‘in the coming hours’.Of course, both those things are interchangeable, since the next 48 hours could be seen as either coming days or hours, but the choice of words suggests a bit more urgency.However, instead of directly contacting Daniel Levy and co., Roma would instead get in touch with the Belgian’s father, who is described as the one ‘dealing with the negotiations in person, alongside the family’s lawyer and an Italian agent’.Embed from Getty ImagesThere’s a brief mention that Alderweireld could end up ‘in a swap’ for either Nicolo Zaniolo or Alessandro Florenzi, but a move for either seems rather difficult right now.It’s said ‘contacts are intensifying’ regarding the centre-back, and that suggests we could get a bit more news over the weekend.In the meantime, Alderweireld is currently with Tottenham on their pre-season tour in Singapore, where they will face Juventus on Sunday.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a Beautiful City and Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoKeto减肥1個簡單的妙招一夜「融化」腹部贅肉(今晚試試)Keto减肥UndoSmart Tech TrendSelf Adjusting Glasses Take Hong Kong by StormSmart Tech TrendUndoSingles50Hong Kong: A 40+ Dating Site That Actually Works!Singles50UndoLoans | Search AdsNeed a loan?

Kurucs productive in the fight under the baskets, “Nets” fifth victory…

first_imgRodions Kurucs today for the eighth time of the season and the third game in a row went to the starting five, spending 24:44 minutes on the field. During that time, he scored two points (0/0 free throws, 1/2 two-point throws, 0/2 long throws), nine rebounds (one attack), one intercepted ball, one blocked throw, two personal notes and a positive +/- score. +2. This time Cesis was in the center position in the starting five.Both Nets and Magic lacked many regular players today. Brooklyn, like in the match against the league’s best team Milwaukee “Bucks”, when they won an amazing 119: 116 victory, the team’s best scorers in the NBA bubble Cariss Leverts, Jeret Allen and Joe Harris were not put on the field. Gareth Temple was also rested, but 40-year-old Jamal Croford is still unable to play due to a “hamstring” injury. Orlando’s Magic, meanwhile, played without Michael Carter-Williams (left foot), Evan Fourier (illness), Terens Rosa (quarantined) and Aaron Gordon (“hamstring”). The two teams met each other in the first official game after the resumption of the regular season, when the Magic basketball players won (128: 118), but the Nets team, which had won four of the last five games, while Orlando lost the last in four matches in a row.Steve Clifford’s “Magic” game started with two long shots by Nikola Vuchevich and Ves Ivand, but the six-point lead was also Orlando’s biggest advantage in the game. The Nets won the first quarter with 34:22, and half of the team’s points were scored by the Frenchman Timothy Luvavu-Cabaro, but in the second quarter they managed to increase the leadership to 17 points – 60:43. Kurucs scored only two points in the first half with a difficult throw-in, throwing away both three-point throws.Starting in the second half, Orlando “Magic” managed to change the course of the game and make a 9: 0 breakthrough, however, after a minute break requested by Jacques Von, the “Nets” basketball players quite quickly quelled the outbreak of the opponents’ attack. They held the lead in the first half without any reservations until the end of the game and thus won the fifth victory in the last six games – 108: 96. It should be mentioned that at the end of the third quarter, Chris Chios, the head of the Brooklyn match, left the game due to a minor injury, but the seriousness of the injury is not yet known.The best game of his career was played tonight by Bosnian striker Janan Musa, who broke his career record both in the points scored (17 points) and in the assists (six assists). The record of career points was also beated by freshman Jeremy Martin, who together with Luvava-Cabaro with 24 points was the most productive player in the ranks of “Nets”. Meanwhile, Vess Ivandu and Markel Fulz scored 18 points in the Magic team, while James Ennis III, Nikola Vučevičs and Kems Birčs added 12 points.The last regular season game before the playoffs in Brooklyn “Nets” will be played on August 14 at 04:00 Latvian time, meeting with the Portland “Trail Blazers” (33-39), currently in the ninth place of the Western Conference, for whom this game could be very important or even crucial in the fight for entry into the “play-off”.last_img read more
