PASSING OF DR. MARTIN ADJEI
On August 15, 2006, Dr. Martin Adjei, was killed in a tragic automobile accident on his
way home for work. Dr. Adjei was an Associate Professor and Forage Extension Specialist.
Many in the livestock industry knew Martin for his work in transferring research
information on pasture insect bio-controls to producers. This was most notably in the
area of mole cricket control on bahiagrass pastures. Martin is survived by his wife Gloria
(Elementary teacher at Nocatee) and two children, Daniel and Ohenewa, along with his mother
Mary Adjei and a number of extended family members. Dr. Adjei will be missed by his
colleagues and the Florida Cattle Industry.

CORN:

Corn had very good export announcements this week and weekly export figures were positive. Everyone is estimating
another bumper corn crop this year but exports have prices well above a year ago even with the huge carry over from
last year's colossal production. Corn supplies are not going to come up short anytime soon but ethanol plants are
sprouting up like weeds throughout the entire Mid-West. Agricultural exports have been a Godsend to our export-
import deficits. Sorghum out did corn and did not follow the usual price pattern. A large percentage of this commodity
is usually grown in the dry land, non-irrigated, areas of the southwest and drought conditions really hit this part of the
country hard this year. In many instances, especially livestock feed, sorghum is a good substitute for corn.

CANADA CONFIRMS NEW BSE CASE
Canadians confirmed an eighth case of BSE in that country last Wednesday, this one in a mature cow they believe was
either born just before the ban on feeding mammalian protein or during the program's early stages. A day later, the
Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) completed its investigation into the seventh BSE case there -- confirmed July
13 -- in a cow born after the ban. As to the completed investigation, CFIA officials say: "A particular incident was
documented in one commercial feed facility that may have permitted the contamination of a single batch of cattle feed
with prohibited material. The entire batch of feed was shipped to the BSE-positive animal's farm. While the
investigation looked at all possible routes of exposure, this particular batch of feed is the most probable source of
infection. The CFIA has launched an enforcement investigation." Source: Beef Stocker Trends, August 29, 2006.

Results from 2005 Beef Audit Identify Three Quality-Control Successes
Initial results from the National Beef Audit 2005, funded in part by beef checkoff investments in the Beef Quality
Assurance Program, provide U.S. beef and dairy producers as beef producers insight into beef quality successes and
future challenges. Identified in the audit were the top three quality successes since the 2000 audit: improved
microbiological safety, improved cattle genetics and beef of higher quality, and fewer injection-site lesions. Lack of
uniformity/consistency in quality was ranked by end-users as the No. 1 defect in the U.S. beef industry. That lack was
further defined by four things: (presence) of marbling; tenderness; palatability; and inconsistency among and within
quality grades. The rankings are from interviews with beef end-users including exporters, purveyors, foodservice and
retail channels. The beef audit is conducted every five years and is part of the Beef Quality Assurance Program.
Program training materials used to help certify trained producers in quality pre-harvest practices in 47 states are
funded by the beef checkoff. Source-Beef Briefs. Beef Checkoff News for Dairy Producers-August 29, 2006.
JOHANNS ASSURES CONFIDENTIALITY OF NAIS
U.S. Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns told those attending the National Animal ID Info Expo on Wednesday that
information collected through the National Animal Identification System will be kept confidential and used only in the
event of a disease outbreak. Johanns said private vendors would collect and maintain the data, making it off-limits to
federal open-records laws. "It is not data that is controlled and owned by USDA, so we can protect confidentiality," he
said. Source-Drovers Alert, Thursday, August 24, 2006, Vol. 7, Issue 34.
FCA FALL QUARTERLY MEETING
Due to Hurricane Ernesto, the FCA Fall Quarterly meeting will be held September 20-22, 2006 at the Sarasota Cay
Resort 7150 N. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota, Fl. The general session is a 1:00 PM with committee meetings at 1:45 PM. The

U. S. HOUSE BILL-HR 503
A bill in Congress would, in effect, forbid the sale of an animal for slaughter -- violating the owner's right of private
property -- based not on science, food safety or humane grounds but strictly on the emotional plea that some don't want
animals slaughtered for food. A precedent here could have catastrophic consequences for all animal food production.
This bill (H.R. 503) in the U.S. House has over 200 co-sponsors, very close to the number required for passage. Last
session's bill to pull federal funding for horse slaughter inspection did pass, despite the livestock industry's belief prior
to the vote that they had the votes to defeat it. This issue highlights something the livestock industries must come to
grips with. The public increasingly views production animal agriculture with the same attitude it views the critter sitting
next to them on the couch a dog or cat they consider "family." This blurring of the line between humans and animals -
silly and incomprehensible to cattlemen who handle production livestock every day poses a potentially fatal threat to
livestock production. Source-- AFF Sentinel Vol.3 #23-Battlefields-August 30, 2006.

Hard to Control Weeds


Are you battling tropical soda
apple? Dogfennel? Blackberry?
Cogongrass? Is there any herbicide
that controls soda apple and
dogfennel with one pass through the
pasture?

These are all questions we answer,
especially with the new herbicides
Milestone and Forefront. Simply
stated, what are the best options for
weed control in pastures?

That is a challenging question, and it
will depend on the particular weed
species, the environment, weed age
and size, as well as time of year.



Who Should Attend?
* Ranchers

* Herbicide Applicators

* Extension Educators

* Anyone who wants to learn more

GRAZING MANAGEMENT SCHOOL
This course is sponsored by The South Florida Beef-
Forage Program of the University of Florida,
Cooperative Extension Service. It is conducted with
the volunteer assistance of area livestock producers
and Allied Industries. It represents separation of the
original Forage and Pasture Management School
into subject components that can be taught in a
couple of days. It is part of a continuing multi-
County education effort to help South-Central
Florida producers raise and market high quality beef
cattle, per cow, per acre, profitably.

Grazing management is the manipulation of
livestock grazing to obtain defined outputs of
livestock products. It involves careful management
of both pasture and livestock resources to meet
desired objectives. This new course is offered in a
two day sessions. The theories of grazing
management concepts and methods are discussed in
a classroom setting during the first day, and
concepts taught are supported by practical
applications in the field during the second day tour
to selected ranches in the area and the Ona Range
Cattle Research and Education Center.

This is the first offering of a "Grazing
Management School" and we encourage you and
your personnel to attend. Registration fee for this
school is $ 60.00 if returned by Sept 15, 2006, and
$ 80.00 if returned after Sept. 15, 2006.
Registration forms can be obtained at one of the
Extension offices in The South Florida Beef-Forage
Program area, or by contacting one of the
participating Extension Agents listed on the back of
this brochure. Registrations should be returned to,
