The restriction applies to all county fairs and the Indiana State Fair.Indiana joined at least 10 other states from Maryland to South Dakota that have taken similar action because of the spread of highly pathogenic avian influenza. BOAH said 16 states, primarily in the upper Midwest, have had diagnosed cases resulting in the deaths of more than 40 million birds. It said one “backyard” flock in Indiana was diagnosed with it in early May.BOAH said its action was taken to protect Indiana’s poultry, including backyard flocks. It said that while the influenza is deadly to domestic poultry, it does not present a threat to food safety. In addition, the Centers for Disease Control considers the virus to be of low risk to human health.BOAH said the restriction likely will stand through the end of this year.Fisher said 4-H’ers often learn how conditions such as diseases affect poultry owners and producers large and small – in this case a prohibition of poultry exhibits at Indiana fairs this year.“This, too, is a learning experience,” he said.Poultry shown at fairs primarily consists of chickens, ducks, pigeons and turkeys.Fisher said it will be up to each county to determine how 4-H’ers with poultry projects can still participate in its fair, perhaps such as by showing photos of their birds and talking to fairgoers about their projects.Source: Purdue Newslast_img read more

Farm Loan Delinquencies Increase, But Remain Historically Low

first_img Farm Loan Delinquencies Increase, But Remain Historically Low New research shows farm loan delinquencies remain historically low. Several years of persistently low net farm income, collapsing levels of working capital, and rising debt, has sparked concern regarding the overall health of the farm economy. However, Agricultural Economic Insights shows that at the end of 2018, delinquencies rates for non-real estate farm loans totaled 1.84 percent. After reaching a low of 0.7 percent in 2014, the measure has trended higher over the last five years, and current levels are at the highest levels since 2011. However, data compiled since 1987 shows the current level of 1.84 percent remains below the 32-year average of 2.26 percent, and current levels are well below the increase in delinquencies observed in 2009, which peaked at 3.15 percent.Further, the delinquencies rate on non-real estate farm loans remains lower than levels experienced during the 1990s and early 2000s. The research concludes that the increase seen over last several years came from historically low levels, attributing to the still below average rate.

Zoo provides plan to control spring break traffic around zoo

first_imgElizabeth Campbellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/elizabeth-campbell/ Twitter Elizabeth Campbellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/elizabeth-campbell/ Linkedin Elizabeth Campbell is executive editor of TCU 360 and a senior journalism and political science double major. When not in the newsroom, she’s thinking about the news while probably watching TCU football or being a history nerd. Send her a tip if you have a story to share! With warmer weather and spring break for many Fort Worth schools, the Fort Worth Zoo is preparing for increased attendance with additional staff and parking lots and hiring Fort Worth Police officers.Fort Worth Zoo Communications Director Alexis Wilson said the zoo once again has an “extremely well-coordinated plan” that will get people into parking lots and the zoo “in an orderly fashion.”“Most people arrive at the front of the zoo to find short ticket lines and quick entry,” Wilson said.Fort Worth officer Mario Cabello said that there are 10 to 14 officers helping to control traffic and set up cones. The zoo is providing extra lots for parking around the zoo and across University.Fort Worth resident Jessica Lockhart went to the zoo this week because her sons were on spring break and wanted to see the giraffes and the new baby gorilla “Gus.” She said she had to wait about 10 minutes in traffic and park further away than she usually does.“Traffic was a little hectic but it was to be expected since it’s spring break,” Lockhart said. “They were definitely prepared for the crowd.”The City of Fort Worth also made an effort to prepare for the crowd releasing a statement warning people to “be prepared for long waits at intersections as you approach the zoo.”The statement also told people about the Fort Worth Transportation Authority Safari Shuttle. The shuttle stops at Bus Bay 5 A, adjacent to the Trinity Railway Express platform at the Intermodal Transportation Center on Jones Street, and the zoo’s main entrance on Colonial Parkway. Transportation Authority Communications Manager Laura Hanna said the shuttle is there to “help ease traffic during a very busy time.”“Our Safari Shuttle uses a back-door route that avoids much of the traffic congestion,” Hanna said. “Our passengers won’t need to pay for parking at the zoo – or spend time looking for a parking space.”The Safari Shuttle stops outside the zoo entrance.The shuttle cost $3.50 for adults and $1.75 for children under 18 and seniors who are 65 and older if they have their reduced ID card. It is free for children age five and younger. The first shuttle leaves the ITC at 9:30 a.m. and the last shuttle leaves the zoo at 6 p.m. They run every 30 minutes, Hanna said.The zoo also has plans to handle the increase in attendance inside the zoo. Wilson said the zoo added more food locations and restroom facilities in the zoo, as well as extra staff members stationed throughout the zoo to assist guests.Oklahoma resident Anna Hudson traveled down to Fort Worth because she said she wanted to see if “the zoo is as great as everyone says it is.” Hudson said she didn’t have any trouble parking, despite hearing from other people that it would be difficult. Although she was confused about where to park, she said that she was able to ask people to figure it out.“I maybe waited about five minutes,” Hudson said. “For this amount of people they are handling it really well.”The city warned that the traffic around the zoo could be the worst Wednesday when the zoo offers half-priced admission.[<a href=”//storify.com/CaitlinAndreen/fort-worth-zoo-spring-break-traffic” target=”_blank”>View the story “Fort Worth Zoo Spring Break” on Storify</a>] + posts Twitter Facebook Alumna joins ‘Survivor’ reality show in quest for a million dollars print ReddIt Elizabeth Campbellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/elizabeth-campbell/ Grains to grocery: One bread maker brings together farmers and artisans at locally-sourced store WATCH: Former Chief of Staff for Obama talks Trump administration, Democrats, liberal arts education Breakdown: Cambridge Analytica, information warfare Linkedin Facebook ReddIt Elizabeth Campbellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/elizabeth-campbell/ CRES negotiates move to interdisciplinary unit amid student resistance Previous articleFort Worth police officer shot; one suspect dead, second suspect in custodyNext articleFour fun ways to spend spring break in Cowtown Elizabeth Campbell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Elizabeth Campbell Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturdaylast_img read more

Ethical investment protests continue

first_imgOUSU Social Justice Committeeorganised a walk around Oxfordon Wednesday afternoon to raise awareness about investment issues. Organisersestimated that between 50 and 100 people joined the walk at various points.One of the organisers, RichardOllerhead, commented “There was a really good turnout… we got a really goodresponse from people in colleges, many genuinely shocked about where theircollege had its money.”Campaigners have already amasseda petition of 800 names calling for Oxfordto adopt a Socially Responsible Investment policy. A recent survey by theCampaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT) revealed that Oxford has 1,357,123 shares in the armstrade. St John’s Collegewas ranked as the second highest investor in the arms trade of all Oxbridgecolleges, one of seven Oxfordcolleges in the top ten. In a survey carried out at St John’s, 75% of College members were foundto be opposed to arms trade investment. Balliol Collegecame fifth in the survey, and is amongst several JCRs to have already passedmotions demanding ethical investment. Anna Wolmuth, Balliol’s MikeWoodin Rep responsible for ethical investment said “last term the GoverningBody voted overwhelmingly in favour of adopting a Socially ResponsibleInvestment policy, to be drawn up in consultation with the JCR, MCR and SCR.” The march coincides with theannouncement on Tuesday that Oxfordhas entered into a patnership with QinetiQ, who specialise in defence andsecurity. A University statement argues that “The University is concerned touphold the highest ethical standards when considering all new researchcollaborations, and the agreement with QinetiQ is no exception.” It adds that “Previouscollaborations between QinetiQ and Oxfordhave included developing better diagnostics for dyslexia and translating theability of a Namibian beetle to collect water droplets on its back into amarketable system for harvesting water in the desert.”Emma Norris, OUSU President, said the partnership: “It’sjust another example of the University’s deeply disappointing behaviour when itcomes to ethical investment. QinetiQ is heavily involved in defencetechnology… Where will this end?
