The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in collaboration with USDA and the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention (CDC), plans to hold a jointly sponsored public meeting to obtain input on possible ap
proaches for collecting additional on-farm antimicrobial drug use and resistance data, according to a notice in the Federal Register.
The agencies seek the data to better evaluate the effect of measures being implemented to foster the judi
cious use of medically important antimicrobial drugs in food-producing animals.
The meeting will be held September 30, 2015, in the USDA Jefferson Auditorium in Washington, D.C. Registration is required. To provide oral comments, register by September 18. Public comments will be accepted until November 30.
Maybe it's because of some of the morons that they have on their BOD. Look at some of them, and their terrible history of running companies into the ground that they run or ran...
A Canadian team of researchers has received $9.8 million to improve disease resilience and sustainability in pork production.
Genome Canada awarded the project in the national Genomics and Feeding the Future competition to innovative agri-food research led by University of Saskatchewan scientists.
In addition, a professor of swine production medicine at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine will co-lead a project with Alberta colleagues that will create genomics tools to select pigs that are more tolerant of, or resistant to, multiple diseases. Those tools will also allow producers to manage the nutritional content of feed to optimize pig’s health, resulting in reduced use of antibiotics.
The tools will also permit producers to manage the nutritional content of pig feed to ensure that pigs stay healthier, grow more efficiently, have more successful litters and reduce the need for antibiotic use in pig production.
$3.00 diesel is making it much harder to justify the increased spend on NATGAS alternative powered engines. Patience is the key.
Activist investor Thomas Sandell, is finding out that BOBE Food Products is the "Golden Goose"!!! Old Thomas, is finding out what all of us "former Bobsters" have known for decades, Food Products has produced the best ROIC since the company was founded!!! They are probably working on a plan to take the division private, and do a IPO in a year or two, or they may be trying to figure out how much of a premium they should demand from a suitor wanting to acquire the Food Product division. M / A activity is heating back up, and the food companies are some of the most attractive candidates. As for the restaurant division, well that's another story. Much work to be done, especially not to repeat the disaster of the Davis regime. Money spent on remodels producing minimal ROIC. Food quality issues, and people quality issues. Davis B.E.S.T. practices if implemented from the top down, should have had the CEO on all Red, by the fourth year of the regime.
Looking for a decent place to hide? I use POT. Share price appreciation possibilities way better than average and a better than 4% yield presently. As to BOBE, their food is in serious need of upgrading. To much food is brought in already cooked and just warmed up at the restaurant. If I want that type of food, I can go to a Gordon's Food Service Marketplace, and buy the same type of menu items and warm it up at home myself. The BOBE classic menu items like their sausage gravy, and chicken & noodles are not even close in quality to what they use to be. Brown & serve sausage used in place of cooking from fresh, eggs only cracked when a fried or poached egg is ordered, otherwise its a egg poured from a carton. The food has a long way to go to get back to where it was during their heyday, and the portions are meager at best. BOBE is beginning to remind me of Bill Knapp's on steroids, and that ended badly!
wastewater at drilling sites
Saturday, March 21, 2015 by Katie Woods
Shale drilling requires large volumes of wastewater. At first, companies used large wastewater pits to hold the water until tank systems were introduced. Now, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection is working to makes sure that temporary waste pits are banned, according to Pittsburgh Post-Gazette PowerSource.
The DEP also plans to enforce stricter standards to impoundments — centralized wastewater ponds — which have been linked to some cases of soil and water contamination.
Instead of wastewater pits and impoundments, companies can purchase above-ground storage tanks, which can be moved to new drilling sites once wells are completed.
Made my big score on NEOG, which prompted my interest in
VBI. I was a early investor, and hold shares till this day. I agree that this is money that if it goes to zero, doesn't impact me in the least.
The clear liquid flowing from a collection of pipes and wires in a Hayward industrial park smells just like gasoline, and for all practical purposes, it is.
But it wasn't made from crude oil. Instead, it came from natural gas, the fuel whose sudden abundance in America is reshaping the country's energy landscape.
Siluria Technologies says it can produce large quantities of gasoline, diesel, jet fuel and chemicals at a lower cost than traditional refineries and chemical plants. At today's natural gas prices, Siluria's technology could make gasoline at roughly $1 per gallon, according to the company.

Neogen Corporation has developed a quick and easy test to definitively detect Listeria monocytogenes.
ANSR for Listeria monocytogenes is the third test available for Neogen’s innovative ANSR pathogen detection system, and will provide results after only 10 minutes of reaction time following enrichment. The new test joins Neogen’s line of ANSR products, which also includes AOAC Research Institute-validated ANSR for Listeria and ANSR for Salmonella.
Hasn't construction on the pipeline slowed to a crawl, and the mileage to be built this year been curtailed substantially?
All suit and no substance. It looks like Ariel Capital knew what they were doing when they headed for the exit and sold off almost their entire position much earlier in the Davis regime. 9,200 share of Bob Evans now held in their small cap value fund. At one time, this fund held almost 20% of the outstanding shares of BOBE. What did they know, and when did they know it????
