US Soy Is Helping Global Aquaculture Become More Sustainable
The US Soybean Export Council has just published an article on its International Soy in Aquaculture Program. The USSEC has been working to increase the use of soy products in farmed fish feed initially in China. The price of soy was proven to be a more affordable alternative to fishmeal and fish oil. As the aquaculture industry grew, the program's focus expanded to other global regions and farmed species.
In the past 15 years, soy has emerged as the most widely used alternative protein to fishmeal in farmed fish diets. Soy's complete nutritional and amino acid profile works well in aquaculture feeds.

Rebranded NAFTA now includes Canada, Mexico and the USA
U.S. President Donald Trump will sign a successor to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) that will make modest revisions to a previous deal which was killed. This new agreement will ease uncertainly for companies reliant on tariff-free commerce.
The 24-year-0ld NAFTA will now be superseded by the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or USMCA, covering a region that collectively trades more than $1 trillion annually.
The new deal is to have more cars and truck parts made in North America. Also, Canada was holding firm on charging high tariffs on US dairy products. Canada has a complex milk and dairy system. To ensure Canadian dairy farmers don't go bankrupt, the Canadian government restricts how much foreign dairy can enter to keep milk prices high. In the end, Canada is keeping most of its system in place, but is giving a greater market share to the US dairy farmers. That means US dairy farmers can probably send a lot more milk protein concentrate, skim milk powder and infant formula to Canada.Continue Reading

U.S. To Pay Farmers $4.7 Billion to Offset Trade Conflict Losses
US to spend $4.7B to aid farmers
Soybean farmers will be the primary beneficiaries of a $4.7 billion program to offset trade losses, The Wall Street Journal reports. The U.S. Department of Agriculture will make payments to the farmers under the program, which is intended to counter the impact of Trump administration tariffs and counter-tariffs by other countries, especially China. The USDA will:
- Make $3.6 billion in payments to soybean farmers
- Buy up to $1.2 billion of food from farmers
- Spend $200 million on trade promotion
Starting Sept. 4, the USDA’s Farm Service Agency will administer a program to provide payments to corn, cotton, diary, hog, sorghum, soybean and wheat farmers. Soybean farmers will get the bulk of the money, $3.7 billion. Pork producers will get $290 million, while cotton farmers will receive $277 million.
The Wall Street Journal reported this story on August 27th 2018. Story is available by subscription to the WSJ.

Cow Environmental Stress
Cornell University's College of Agriculture recently published an interesting article on cow environmental stress. It's the summer in many parts of the world. People are hot....and so are cows.
The article, authored by Curt Gooch, states:
"A visit on July 4th to a dairy farm that employs aggressive fan cooling for their dairy cows reminded me how much cows really need direct evaporative cooling (sprinklers) to mitigate heat stress when summertime heat waves hit. Cows lying in their sand beds were aggressively panting and drooling saliva with every breath. While sprinklers cannot be located to cool cows when resting in stalls, they can do a great job at the feed bunk, holding areas, and return alleys. "
Keys to successful sprinkler systems include:
- ample water supply, up to 50 gallons per cow per day
- adequately sized pipe to deliver required water to sprinkler manifold pipes
- low pressure within manifold pipes - about 20 psi
- nozzles located so that cows' backs and upper flanks are soaked to the skin in about two minutes of water application
- fans located over feedbunk to remove cow-evaporated moisture from immediately around the hair surface for the balance of a 10 to 15 minute wetting cycle
- an appropriate system controller with proper settings
