Hurricane Sally took a toll on many families and many farms this year. Although many were able to prepare for the disaster, some struggled to harvest in time or their crops weren’t ready to be harvested and they lost their crops.

Since peanuts are grown underground, how do we know when they are ready for harvest? The answer is in the pod. The color of the pod (which is essentially a flower) changes colors as the peanut matures and when the inner hull turns black, it’s ready! (link in comments) #pauseforplants

With fires in both California and Australia earlier this year, many animals are suffering from burns. Luckily, veterinarians around the globe have created new ways to use skin grafting to try and help these animals to get them back on track. With all their hard work every day to save the animals we love; how will you thank a vet today? #MABM #VetPracticeManagement

How do you eliminate risks for farmers? Department head, Dr. Keith Coble, has been trying to answer this question for years.

As I was walking toward Dr. Coble’s office for our meeting, I knew that I would have to wait to speak with him when I got there. And, sure enough, when I arrived at his cluttered office space, full of ideas and projects he has been working on, there he was, talking on the phone. A normal day for Dr. Coble often consists of talking on the phone (like, a lot) and typing away at his keyboard like his life depends on it. Because, at the end of the day, he will spend countless hours to solve a problem. Today, we just happened to talk about how to eliminate risks for farmers.

Coble began talking about the different factors that farmers must face including weather and climate change. He explains how, when he worked with USDA, his goal was to figure out a way to quantify the risks farmers face. He wanted to look at the bigger picture and pay attention to all the risks ranging from price uncertainty to weather. He paused as I finished my notes. I then asked him about his role in fixing the problem.
He starred out of the window, taking a sip out of his signature Dr. Coble coffee mug as he contemplated the question. After a moment, he told me that the largest changes he has seen have been results from changing the production systems, production practices, and varieties that we grow. Dr. Coble continued to tell me that Mississippi State students have been using weather data, yield data and other forms of data to analyze the severity of the issues. With a lot of factors that can affect the risks farmers take every day, there was still a looming question. “So, what does success in this area actually look like to you?”

His face read “discouragement”. He answered me saying “I guess the reality is the risks are always changing.” There is never going to be a perfect answer to this issue, but I agree with Dr. Coble in saying that continuous efforts toward success must be made every day. The good news is that we have a program that gives students tools to think through this ever changing world we live in. Hopefully, students walk away from our department ready to tackle the same challenges and find answers where we couldn’t.

What advice would you give to current or potential students of the MABM program? Department Head, Dr. Keith Coble’s response: “I think what our master’s program really does is make you a more complete employee in terms of your skills… I think we don’t shy away from the fact that our program is rigorous, and our program is going to make students crunch numbers and that is only going to make our students more valuable at the next stage.”

Reducing transmission risk of livestock disease: New research identifies livestock husbandry practices that increase transmission risk of deadly livestock virus PPRV

Is this Covid-19 for animals? Researchers have discovered a virus among sheep and goats: Peste des Petits Ruminants Virus (PPRV). Since there is no clear answer to where the virus comes from or how it is transmitted, the search for answers continues. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/08/200824120042.htm

The risk of transmitting the livestock virus PPRV, which threatens 80% of the world's sheep and goats, increases with certain husbandry practices, including attendance at seasonal grazing camps and the introduction of livestock to the herd.

Microplastics in farm soils: A growing concern

Are there Microplastics in your salad? And should we be doing something about it? Most people assume that plastic waste only damages the aquatic life and forget that it is also found in our soils as well. #policy #MABM https://www.ehn.org/plastic-in-farm-soil-and-food-2647384684.html?rebelltitem=7#rebelltitem7

Researchers say that more microplastics pollution is getting into farm soil than oceans—and these tiny bits are showing up in our fruits, veggies, and bodies.
