Global Positioning(GPS)

  • Video: What's next for GPS in farm machinery? | Precision guidance content from Farm Industry News

  • John Deere AMS Overview Video – YouTube

  • 9530 Ride Along with AMS Technician Ryan Thrushman.wmv - YouTube


GPS

  • Map fields to:

    • Improve product quality

    • Using chemicals more efficiently

    • Increase production efficiency

    • Conserve energy

    • Protect soil and groundwater


Genetic engineering
Genetic engineering

  • Inserting a specific gene into the chromosome of an organism to develop a desired trait in the recipient organism

  • Genetic Engineering in California Agriculture – YouTube

  • Genetically Modified Foods: Potentially Dangerous - YouTube


Genetic engineering1
Genetic engineering

  • Transform a single gene

    • Faster production of new varieties

  • Transfer to a totally unrelated plant

  • Make hybrids from plants that cannot be cross-pollinated

  • Produce disease-resistant plants

  • Produce plants that are toxic to insects

  • Produce crops that are tolerant of herbicides


Cloning
Cloning

  • Creating genetically identical plants

  • What Are the Advantages of Cloning in Agriculture? | eHow.com

  • Plant Biotech | Plant Cloning – YouTube

  • How they cloned Dolly the sheep. - YouTube

    Clone Farm | VICE News | VICE

  • Top 15 Famous Animal Clonings! - YouTube


Gender selection
Gender selection

  • Why?

    • Dairy farmers female for herd replacement

    • Beef farmers male for faster gain and better prices

    • Some fish female is better quality meat


Production hormones
Production hormones

  • rbST in American Dairies - Bovine Growth Hormone – YouTube

  • Beef-animal growth hormone for faster weight gain

    • In feed

    • Just under the skin

  • Porcine somatotropin(PST)-enhance muscle growth in young pigs


Integrated pest management

Integrated pest management1
Integrated Pest Management

  • Using an array of methods to keep pest damage below economic levels

    • Cultural

    • Mechanical

    • Biological

    • Pesticides


Animal research and human medicine
Animal research and human medicine

  • Swine

    • Steroids, anticoagulant, estrogen, insulin, heart valves, skin grafts

  • Xenotransplantation-organs between species

    • Mainly swine

  • Many others


Animals of the future
Animals of the future

  • Dairy

    • Higher production: genetic improvements

  • Beef

    • 50% increase in growth rate

    • Super Cow Creators - YouTube

    • Increase in twinning: selection and breeding

  • Swine

    • Bigger but leaner: hormones


Animals of the future1
Animals of the future

  • Poultry

    • Faster gains, better feed efficiency

  • Sheep

    • Faster gaining

  • Catfish

    • Sexing: produce all males(grow faster)

  • Bees

    • Use of specific species for pollination


Animals of the future2
Animals of the future

  • Transgenic-introduce genes of one species into another species

    • Cattle genes into pigs for less fat
