Farmers Lose Big Due to H-2A Workers

A genetic revolution in software is helping cattle produces obtain higher-accuracy expected progeny differences. BOLT is a new software adopted by International Genetic Solutions (IGS) to conduct its National Cattle Evaluation (NCE). IGS is the unique collaboration of 12 breed associations in the U.S. and Canada that conduct a common, multi-breed combined database representing almost 17 million animals. Many at the recent annual meeting of the Beef Improvement Federation heralded BOLT.“It’s a game-changer,” believes Wade Shafer, executive vice president of the American Simmental Association (ASA).

The first rules governing use of small unmanned aircraft systems took effect on Monday, and the Federal Aviation Administration is reminding farmers and Ag companies of the new requirements.

Huffington Post reports that U.S. farmers risk losing everything because of Absurd Immigration Procedures. Citing that a number of farmers in Georgia reported six-digit losses this year due to delays in visa processing. Another farmer, in California, watched as one-third of his Napa cabbage rotted in the field while he waited for the H-2A workers to arrive.
