There’s an emerging risk to southern U.S. cattle from rabid vampire bats.

Dr. Joanne Maki, with Boehringer Ingelheim says they’re helping get the word out about the importance of rabies vaccination.

“Ecologists and wildlife biologists reported data at a meeting last year, it was mentioned, that there have been detections of vampire bats less than 50 miles from the U.S. border in the south of Texas.”

Maki tells Brownfield Ag News they want livestock producers to know the USDA Wildlife Services has a program in Mexico and now Texas to do surveillance of cattle at sales barns and farms, “With the changing environment, with the decrease in natural bat habitat [IAF: appeal to UN biodiversity SDG], there are a lot of interesting factors going on right now that are encouraging the northward spread of the vampire bat from Mexico towards the southern United States.”

Maki says damage estimates to cattle in that region if vampire bats take hold is $7 to 9 Million dollars a year. Rabies reduces milk production in dairy cows and stresses beef cattle, harming their ability to put on weight.

How quickly the energy crisis becomes a food crisis — greenhouses in the Netherlands (the 2nd biggest exporter of food worldwide) are being SHUT DOWN as they can’t afford the natural gas to heat them.

This is just latest perfect throttle on food production!


----------------------------------------------------------------------

Skyrocketing power prices are forcing the vast network of Dutch glasshouses -- the continent’s biggest -- to go dark or scale back, threatening to cut supplies at Europe’s fruit and vegetable stalls and flower shops. Although small, the Netherlands is the world’s second-largest exporter of food by value, thanks in part to its high-yielding glasshouses that span some 10,000 hectares (25,000 acres) -- about the size of Paris. They grow vegetables like tomatoes, cucumbers and bell peppers and flowers including orchids, tulips and chrysanthemums -- making the country one of Europe’s key suppliers of fresh produce and a huge hub for the floral trade.

“These are drastic measures that reduce production and yield and have major economic consequences for the companies,” … fruit and vegetable shortages could further stoke food inflation, with a United Nations index of world prices hovering near a decade high. Grain harvests were hit by bad weather, shipping costs are soaring and worker shortages abound from farms to restaurants. The energy crunch could exacerbate those problems -- rippling through not just greenhouses, but also costs for fertilizers spread to boost

At Lans, a Maasdijk-based tomato grower producing about 40 million kilograms (80 million pounds) of the vegetable per year, greenhouses are already turning darker. The bulk of its harvest is raised indoors, and normally all the lamps used to sun the vines are turned on as daylight fades in winter. This year, they’re only running at 50% to 80%. “Eventually, you will produce less,” said Erwin van der Lans, operational director. “That is starting now. Our production is now cut by about 10%, that may go to 20%. Eventually, the customers little by little will start paying more.”

I want everyone to notice how the media language is changing, because this presages a change in the way the system treats people. It is fully weaponizing against us all:

This week the US National Association of Schoolboards asked the FBI to step in and support them to be safe from these increasingly crazy, hostile, violent, extremist parents who don’t want their children to be abused and shot up with experimental injections. There were media reports, alternating very deliberately between “extremist” and “terrorist” when speaking about CARING PARENTS. This sets the tone.

Now we are seeing reports like this one, a Muslim doctor who says “antivaxxers come in and hate me because I have brown skin” — again reinforcing this idea that anyone who questions the PharmaFascism narrative is a hate-fueled, extremist.

Don’t let this silence you, or they win the association game. Be yourself. Be loving. But be loud. And REJECT THE TYRANNY.

Good news on a Monday morning: the word is out about a worldwide corporate takeover of the food supply — and people reject it:

Street and online people’s protests against the “global corporate food empire” greeted the opening of the UN Food Systems Summit (UN FSS), as the Global People’s Summit (GPS) on Food Systems launched a Global Day of Action on the third and final day of its counter-summit to the UN FSS happening virtually and in New York.

The International League of People’s Struggles (ILPS), International Women’s Alliance and International Migrants Alliance protested in front of the UN headquarters in New York to denounce the corporate capture of the UN and the “global corporate food empire” led by agrochemical, food and agribusiness transnational corporations and multi-billionaire Bill Gates.

The UN FSS is being criticized by people’s movements and civil society as a platform for consolidating corporate control over food and agriculture and perpetuating neoliberal food systems that have wreaked havoc on the lives of small food producers, especially from the Global South, who supply 80% of the world’s food.

“We are here to bring the demands of peoples from the Global South for just, equitable, healthy and sustainable food systems to the doorstep of the world’s policymakers. For over a year, the UN has ignored the people’s calls to sever its ties with the World Economic Forum.

“Instead, it has worked ever closer with the global elite and has co-opted policy frameworks to serve corporate interests. We are here to say, enough! The people will resist this path to greater destruction of our livelihoods, health, cultures and the planet,” said Nina Macapinlac, ILPS North America coordinator.

Even those running the UN Food Systems Summit have become critical of the fact that it is merely a disguise for a corporate takeover. We must be encouraged that they have, if you will pardon the expression, bit off more than they can chew here:


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Michael Fakhri, the United Nations’ Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, who acted as an independent official advisor to the summit’s process, also came away critical of the multi-stakeholder structure of the summit.

“No one has talked about why we’re in the mess we’re in today, and no one talked about who should be held accountable for the mess,” Fakhri told Civil Eats, after observing the day’s speeches. “All they [said] was, ‘everyone needs to be part of the solution.’” Yet casting such a wide, undiscerning net, Fakhri says, results in the “same people that cause the problem being invited to be part of the solution.”

On multiple occasions, Fakhri says that he pressed members of the summit’s leadership to consider the role of major corporations in shaping food systems, but was often met with pushback.

Pepsi CEO proclaims that net zero (#AbsoluteZero) means we must change the way we do agriculture.

The same, tired argument “Stop farming and ranching because global warming.”

It’s not going to work. People are already fed up.

Big meat companies pushing smaller processors off the shelves -- even as the government gives lip service to diversifying our food systems.

It's a worldwide corporate takeover of the food supply, via engineered food shortages. When you understand this, much of the noise around supply chains and labor/trucking shortages come into focus.

A Melbourne grandfather has died of ­Legionnaires’ disease days after opening a bag of potting mix for his wife.

In a statement to 7NEWS.com.au, a Department of Health spokesperson said while potting mix may seem harmless “it can be dangerous unless the correct procedures are followed”.

Giuseppe ‘Beppi’ Trentin, 79, died in hospital last Wednesday - a month shy of his 80th birthday - after he was exposed to legionella bacteria at the couple’s Preston home.

His son Renato Trentin told 7NEWS.com.au that his mum had been repotting a tomato plant when she asked her husband to grab the bag of potting mix from the garage and open it for her.

“Mum did all the potting, dad didn’t touch the soil or anything,” he said.

A few days later, Beppi woke with a fever and was admitted to hospital a week later when his condition deteriorated rapidly.

The bacteria can be found in tiny quantities in the general environment and do not pose a health hazard, however, the ingredients and dampness of potting mix make it the ideal breeding ground.

Gardeners are advised to wear a mask and gloves when handling soil, compost or potting mix and wash their hands to minimise the risk of exposure.

Most people who breathe in the bacteria do not become ill. The risk of disease is increased with age, smoking, and in people with weakened immune systems,” the spokesperson said
