Wisconsin Board Rejects Effort to Open Up 2021 Wolf Hunting Season

Wolves on the open range

Today, Animal Wellness Action issued a statement in response to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Board rejecting a reckless February trophy hunt.

Wolves have dodged a bullet today, but the battle to retain essential protections for wolves is far from over.”

— Scott Edwards

MADISON, WISCONSIN, UNITED STATES, January 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today, Scott Edwards, general counsel of Animal Wellness Action, issued the following statement in response to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Board narrowly rejecting an unprecedented and reckless February trophy hunt and commercial trapping season for wolves. The effort was mounted by Republican state lawmakers in response to a November 3rd Trump Administration action removing wolves from the list of threatened and endangered species.

AWA and a raft of other organizations have promised to challenge the premature and unwarranted removal in federal court. AWA and other groups and citizens also filed objections with the Board prior to the hearing.

Below is the statement from Mr. Edwards:

“This maneuver by legislators to open a trophy hunting season in February is one more reason why the federal courts have been right to reject delisting of endangered wolves on multiple occasions. The state has been reckless in buckling to pressure and allowing the mass killing of wolves, often by particularly inhumane means. Wolves have dodged a bullet today, but the battle to retain essential protections for wolves is far from over.”

The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Food Price Index Shows Uptick in Food Inflation

The FAO Food Price Index (FFPI) data recently released showed an uptick in inflation.

CALGARY, AB, CANADA, January 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The FAO Food Price Index (FFPI) data recently released showed an uptick in inflation. According to the FAO the “FFPI averaged 107.5 points in December 2020, up 2.3 points (2.2 percent) from November, marking the seventh month of consecutive increase. Except for sugar, all sub-indices of the FFPI registered modest gains in December, with the sub-index of vegetable oil again rising the most, followed by that of dairy, meat and cereals. For 2020 as a whole, the FFPI averaged a three-year high of 97.9 points…”. (1)

Veripath believes that “increases in food price inflation may in part be driven by the large increase in the global monetary base that has taken place since the onset of the pandemic and which appears set to continue unabated. Fiscal deficits in G7 countries have increased at unprecedented rates and have been largely funded through central bank bond buying programs – direct monetization in other words. It remains to be seen whether this uptick in food inflation is a temporary or the beginning of a change in baseline inflation rates on the back of highly expansionary monetary policy”.

Veripath operates as a pair of funds – Veripath Farmland LP, which is structured to own farmland in Saskatchewan and Manitoba only; and Veripath Farmland (UR) LP, which is structured to own farmland across the rest of the country. By having two separate vehicles, Veripath simplifies and streamlines compliance with the various provincial regulatory environments.

The funds also have open-ended, evergreen structures, rather than the traditional fixed term. With this approach, Veripath allows shorter- and longer-duration holdings to exist side-by-side, enabling investors, rather than management, to make the decision as to what holding period best fits their portfolio design requirements.

Who is Veripath: Veripath is a Canadian alternative investment firm. Members of Veripath’s management team have decades of farmland, private equity, and private credit investment experience and manage over 70,000 acres of Canadian row crop farmland. Veripath implements its farmland strategy in a way that seeks to preserve as far as possible farmland’s low-volatility return profile – the attribute that generates a material portion of Canadian farmland’s superior risk adjusted return profile. Veripath does this by seeking to minimize operational, weather, geographic and business-related risks – and capture the pure return from land appreciation. Canadian zero-til farmland portfolios may also be a useful addition to ESG driven mandates combining superior risk adjusted returns with environmental benefits.

Veterinary Customer Reviews

Veterinary Customer Reviews

Veterinary Digital Marketing Agency

Veterinary Digital Marketing Agency

PARSIPPANY, NJ, USA, January 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — As a veterinarian, you spend most of your time taking care of animals that need your help. It’s a rewarding career, and you probably don’t think of yourself as a marketer or even a business professional.

If you own your practice, though, you wear more hats than just veterinary medicine. You’re the chief business strategist and marketer as well. It can certainly feel overwhelming, but there’s good news — your customers can do some of the work for you.

By leaving favorable online reviews, your existing customers promote your practice and help you attract new clients. How do you get more online reviews for your veterinary marketing? Here are the tips you need.

Make Sure You Claim Your Google Business Listing

Google is a great place to centralize your reviews. Before you start thinking about how to get more Google reviews, though, it’s important to claim your business on Google My Business.

Claiming your information does more than give you an online listing. It helps you start building your online reputation with Google, clients, and prospects. Your business listing has a positive impact on veterinary SEO as well as reviews.

You’ll want to completely fill in your information, from the clinic name to your hours and contact information. If you can, include photos and a detailed description. If you also use veterinary social media marketing, make sure your contact information matches your Google profile.

Once you’ve claimed your clinic’s Google profile, you’re ready to start collecting reviews and improving your veterinary digital marketing.

Ask Your Customers For a Review After Each Appointment

Often getting a positive review is as simple as asking for it! You can’t expect clients to read your mind, so come out and ask for reviews.

You can have a flier that is handed to patient families at checkout that says something like, “Your happiness means the world to us. Visit us on Google to leave a review!” If you want, spice it up with some animal-related humor as well.

An email list is another great way to connect with your patients throughout the year. If you haven’t created one yet, start asking for customer email addresses along with other contact information. Email marketing for veterinary clinics helps you keep your furry patients’ families engaged with your practice and gives you a chance to ask for reviews.

Ensure your email or flier includes your Google business website link, so it’s easy for customers to leave their thoughts.

Offer an Incentive for Leaving Reviews

There’s nothing wrong with sweetening the pot and offering an incentive for leaving a review. Of course, you should follow the rules — you can’t pay for positive reviews. However, it’s fine to have an incentive for any honest feedback.

You can offer a raffle each month for anyone who leaves a review during that month. Or, you can have a small treat you give each time someone shares feedback on your Google page.

You can announce these incentives online, in your mailings, and through email. Don’t overlook having signs in your clinic waiting room as well. The more you mention the fun treats people can get, the more likely they will leave a review.

Ask for Creative Reviews

Typing out a written review is certainly the easiest and most common way to leave feedback. However, you may have clients that are especially excited about your clinic and willing to go the extra mile.

These brand ambassadors can make a huge difference for your business as they share their enthusiasm for your work. Encourage them to be creative in how they leave reviews. You can do a video review contest, for instance, or ask for people to send in photos.

You can use these testimonials on your website as well as posting them on your Google business page. Creative reviews capture people’s attention and provide an extra punch to the feedback. You’ll be surprised how many additional patients you can get this way!

Know How to Deal with Negative Reviews

Every veterinarian has been bitten by a puppy, scratched by a cat, or pecked by a feisty bird. It’s part of the job, and sometimes your patients’ owners have a little bite or scratch to give as well.

Getting negative reviews is inevitable, but you can deal with them professionally. Knowing how to do so is an essential part of reputation management for veterinary clinics.

The best approach is to leave a reply to the negative review. You can apologize that the customer feels poorly about their experience and offer to talk to them on email or the phone about their specific concerns.

Doing this shows that you care about a poor experience and is a professional way to take the conflict offline. While you may not win back that customer, being civil and restrained while expressing concern will win you many new clients.

No one expects 100% positive reviews for a business. In fact, companies who have only five-star reviews can attract suspicion. The goal is to respectfully and kindly show concern and offer to resolve the issue offline.

Use Social Media to Encourage Reviews

If you have a social media page with a good audience, you can also use that platform to encourage reviews. You can get reviews directly on Facebook, or you can direct people to leave reviews on your Google page.

Ideally, internet marketing for veterinary hospitals includes various strategies, and social media is high on the list. Millions of people use social media every day, and many people ask for recommendations for animal care from friends and family.

An active veterinary social media presence allows you to share pictures of adorable animals, and who doesn’t love that? You’ll draw people in, and they’ll look at the reviews you’ve collected.

Social media is another great place to ask frequently for honest feedback from your clients. The reviews boost your credibility, and you might even find out about a blind spot in your approach to service.

AOAC INTERNATIONAL Certifies Two Additional Test Kits for Detecting Novel Coronavirus on Surfaces


Certification program validates accuracy claims of test kits sold for use in situations when maintaining surfaces free of coronavirus is a public health concern

ROCKVILLE, MD, US, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — AOAC INTERNATIONAL announced today that it has issued certificates of validation for two proprietary test kits that detect SARS-CoV-2, the causative agent of COVID-19 illness, on stainless steel surfaces.

The two tests join three previously certified tests that have passed the rigorous independent evaluation required by the globally recognized AOAC Research Institute’s Performance Tested MethodsSM Program, which implemented an Emergency Response Validation process to accelerate the evaluations.

While SARS-CoV-2 is known to be susceptible to standard disinfection methods(1), recent studies have shown that it can also be highly persistent on non-porous surfaces(2) such as stainless steel.

AOAC received validation applications for nine test kits, five of which earned certification, including the two kits announced today. All were evaluated for detection of the virus on stainless steel surfaces; AOAC will expand validation to a broader range of environmental surfaces and food matrices in a follow-up project.

In this latest round, certifications were issued for test kits from Eurofins GeneScan Technologies and ThermoFisher Scientific.

Eurofins GeneScan Technologies describes their VIRSeek SARS-CoV-2 Solution (https://bit.ly/361HcsY) as a comprehensive workflow for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 on environmental surfaces that includes swabbing of environmental surfaces, RNA extraction, analysis by Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) and evaluation by an advanced algorithm. Within the VIRSeek SARS-CoV-2 workflow, the efficient removal of the virus from the swab and automated isolation of high-quality RNA is guaranteed by the VIRSeek RNAExtractor. Following RNA extraction, the lysates are analysed with the VIRSeek SARS-CoV-2 Mplex real-time RT-PCR kit. The kit is highly specific for two regions, N1 and N2, in the SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid gene, ensuring reliable results with a two-target approach.

Eurofins notes that they are finding that the assay is effectively detecting all variants where published sequence information was analyzed. “To our best knowledge, none of the lately published mutations (UK, Denmark, Netherlands and South Africa) of SARS CoV-2 affect critical primer / probe binding regions of the VIRSeek SARS CoV-2 Mplex kit,” said Laura Bleichner, Team Lead Microbiology Kit Development.

The evaluation of results is facilitated by an advanced software algorithm which uses machine learning techniques for an automated and reliable analysis.

ThermoFisher Scientific describes their SARS-CoV-2 PCR Workflow (https://bit.ly/3qDzJs0) for packaging and environmental surfaces as a complete end-to-end workflow, encompassing sampling, sample preparation, and detection. It can deliver results in as little as three hours, quickly providing customers with the information they need to manage any potential surface or packaging contamination risks.

The test, which has been validated for qualitative detection of the virus on stainless steel, includes three TaqMan RT-PCR assays, to target SARS-CoV-2 (ORF1ab, N-gene, S-gene) genes, and one positive control assay, targeting the Human RNase P RPPH1 gene offering both high specificity and sensitivity. Because of the multi-target design of this assay, overall test sensitivity should not be impacted by the new SARS-CoV-2 strain lineage – B.1.17 variant.

The ThermoFisher Scientific SARS-CoV-2 PCR Workflow is commercially available and in use on the Applied Biosystems 7500 Fast Real-Time PCR System or the Applied Biosystems QuantStudio 5 Real-Time PCR System. Both instruments are also suitable for the company’s complete portfolio of PCR tests for food pathogens and environmental samples, biothreat organisms, animal species identification and GMO testing.

To perform the reviews, the AOAC Research Institute assembled a team of six analytical science experts from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; the Technical Center of Qingdao customs in the People’s Republic of China; the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Research and Development; the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Gulf Coast Seafood Laboratory; and DNA Software, Inc.

This validation project broke new ground by employing in silico (“in silicon”) analytical techniques that harness modern computational power to compare results against large databases of genetic information. This has a significant advantage over traditional “wet-lab” testing in that genetic sequences from tens of thousands of strains of SARS-CoV-2 and near neighbors could be analyzed for inclusivity and exclusivity. Moreover, obtaining and shipping large numbers of SARS-CoV-2 strains and variants necessary for comparison could be difficult and potentially dangerous.

Danièle Sohier, Senior Manager, Global Scientific Affairs at ThermoFisher Scientific, noted that AOACRI certification brings more confidence to users and food safety authorities. “The value of the AOAC Emergency Response Validation program during these challenging times is significant, and AOAC’s work helps the food industry to better evaluate control measures against COVID-19 contaminations.”

Biobased Diesel Daily logo biobased-diesel.com biodiesel renewable diesel SAF


In partnership with NBB, Kotrba is documenting the stories of early figures who helped shape the multibillion-gallon U.S. biodiesel industry

The work committed up front, from the R&D, vehicle testing and fuel specifications to the boots-on-the-ground state and federal policy efforts, laid the foundation for the industry today.”

— Ron Kotrba, Editor, Biobased Diesel Daily

WARREN, MN, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Ron Kotrba, editor and publisher of Biobased Diesel Daily, is partnering with the National Biodiesel Board to write a book celebrating the organization’s 30th anniversary in 2022. To commemorate NBB’s 1992 founding, the organization plans to document stories of individuals and associations instrumental in its development and growth. A coffee table-style book will unfold the story behind the industry’s greatest successes and share narratives of industry influencers.

A small investment in “soy diesel” research by the Missouri Soybean Merchandising Council in 1991 is widely viewed as the foundational roots for the U.S. biodiesel industry. Today, the U.S. biodiesel industry employs tens of thousands of people, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, improves air quality, adds to U.S. energy security and independence, provides significant value to farmers, and lowers the cost of animal feed for livestock producers.

“We wouldn’t be on the trajectory for six billion gallons by 2030 if it weren’t for the blood, sweat, and tears put in over the years from our founders,” said NBB CEO Donnell Rehagen. “The stories will help bring to life how a novel idea grew into a carbon-reducing solution for our country. Biodiesel is making a difference now because of what has been accomplished over the last 30 years.”

Kotrba, the former editor in chief of Biodiesel Magazine and longtime biofuels writer and editor, is documenting those stories through interviews with key individuals in the sector.

“When I began covering the biodiesel industry in early 2005, national production was maybe the total of one or two large biodiesel plants today,” Kotrba said. “The work committed up front, from the R&D, vehicle testing and fuel specifications to the boots-on-the-ground state and federal policy efforts, laid the foundation for what the industry looks like today.”

In August 2020, Kotrba founded RonKo Media Productions LLC, which provides professional writing services and is the publishing company for Biobased Diesel Daily, the next-generation source for news, information and perspective on biodiesel, renewable diesel, and sustainable aviation fuel.

Kotrba’s Biobased Diesel™ suite of products includes Biobased Diesel Weekly, an e-newsletter sent every Tuesday free of charge to subscribers' inboxes, and Biobased Diesel Biannual, a free print magazine. Subscribe to the weekly e-newsletter and print magazine for free by filling out a short form in the website footer at biobased-diesel.com.

NBB is the U.S. trade association representing the entire biodiesel and renewable diesel value chain, including producers, feedstock suppliers, and fuel distributors. Made from an increasingly diverse mix of resources such as recycled cooking oil, soybean oil and animal fats, biodiesel and renewable diesel are better, cleaner fuels that are available now for use in existing diesel engines without modification.

Vanderbilt Does it Again: The First VR Experience for Raising Capital

A woman uses Virtual Reality to visit a World Tree farm.

Paulownia trees in Virtual Reality.

Visit a World Tree farm in 360 with Virtual Reality.

Use this QR code to watch!

With World Tree being an actual tangible investment, investors want to visit the farms to see their money in action. This project allows investors to visit a farm without ever leaving their house.”

— Distante, Vanderbilt Financial Group Founder and Chairman

WOODBURY, N.Y., UNITED STATES, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — In another first for the financial services industry, Vanderbilt Financial Group has implemented an innovative VR experience through YouTube to assist in the capital raise for World Tree, LLC. Viewers can have an immersive experience in VR or with their phone or tablet, viewing in 360 mode. In less than five minutes, investors can understand the company’s mission.

“The future is here, and financial advisors should be using not some, but all of the technological tools available to them,” said Stephen Distante, Vanderbilt Founder and Chairman. “There is no better tool than film, and no better way to experience film than with VR.”

VR, or Virtual Reality, is a computer-generated immersive experience often using electronic devices such as VR goggles or a smartphone. VR is often used for watching movies or for playing video games, so it may be strange to hear it being used in the finance industry, especially for a capital raise.

In actuality, VR is a perfect instrument for demonstrating the importance of World Tree. World Tree, LLC, based in Mesa, Ariz., is a for-profit, for-good company that unites investors and farmers in creating environmental, social and economic impacts using the Empress (Paulownia) tree. For every acre invested, farmers receive the trees to plant and care for on their land. Those investors are then entitled to a portion of sales from the first harvest.

Vanderbilt Financial Group, who has worked with World Tree's Eco-Tree Program in the past, has launched this VR project as a way to give investors a visceral connection to the work that World Tree does from afar. The trees are farmed in various countries including in Mexico, Costa Rica, and the United States.

“With World Tree being an actual tangible investment, investors want to visit the farms to see their money in action,” Stephen Distante continued. “Of course, that’s not always reasonable due to the locations of the farms, especially with COVID-19 travel restrictions. This VR project allows investors to visit a World Tree farm, and thereby seeing the impact their investment has made, without ever leaving their house.”

You can view one of Vanderbilt’s VR World Tree videos, as well as learn more about the Eco-Tree Program and join our investor waiting list at https://vanderbiltfinancialgroup.com/worldtree/

Aurora Insight to deploy RF sensing cubesats”

— Karol Donimirsky

NEW DELHI, INDIA, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Aurora Insight, which is a Denver startup that captures terrestrial as well as satellite communications data, intends to deploy the first of the two cubesats on launch planned for SpaceX Falcon 9 rideshare flight on January 22. The six-unit cubesats, namely, Bravo and Charlie, were constructed by satellite maker NanoAvionics and integrated with Aurora Insight sensors. Aurora Insight Chief executive officer Jennifer Alvarez informed SpaceNews, “We launch sensors at the fixed sites, such as on buildings as well as in vehicles, on satellites, and aircraft.” We take trillions of samples continuously that we manage in the cloud. Through this, we generate useful RF spectrum information as well as the networks that depend on it.

Aurora Insight sells analytics and data to consumers, including suppliers of broadband networks, operators of towers, producers of cellular devices, and government departments. For instance, the organization provides charts showing the accessibility of radio frequency spectrum as well as wireless networks, measuring 5G, the LTE, Internet of Things, 2G, 3G, TV signals, and Wi-Fi. Established in the year 2016, Aurora Insight deployed its first satellite in the year 2018, a technology demonstration to assess how the company’s patented sensor could sense effective terrestrial communication. “Antennas are usually tilted toward the ground for the cellular base stations such as LTE to optimize signal usage as well as coverage,” Alvarez stated.

“The main challenge is to receive enough signals in the space to detect the RF signal as well as provide analytics.” Aurora Insight employed NanoAvionics to create Bravo and Charlie after the initial technology demo was effective. Bravo was supposed to debut first, but in a few months, it is now planned to launch “Our satellites Bravo and Charlie have considerably more functionality” than in the first satellite, Alvarez stated. “They will activate new wireless spectrum information as well as the networks that depend on it.” To have global coverage, Aurora Insight aims to create a constellation of twelve satellites.

Buy Aussie Timber First to support the domestic timber industry, protect 45,000 local jobs and sustain billions of dollars of economic benefit

While the renewed demand for new houses built using our renewable timber products is welcome, it is not time for complacency as we will continue to face strong economic headwinds this year.”

— AFPA CEO, Ross Hampton

SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES, AUSTRALIA, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — This Australia Day acts as a reminder to Buy Aussie Timber First in an ongoing effort to support the domestic timber industry in 2021 with a view to protecting 45,000 local jobs and sustaining billions of dollars of economic benefit.

In 2021, the national push by the Australian Forest Products Association (AFPA) to Buy Aussie Timber First will continue to play a role in retaining demand for renewable Australian plantation pine, which contributes to the $24 billion timber processing and manufacturing industry.

AFPA extends thanks to the Federal Government for the successful HomeBuilder program and its extension as well as State government for stimulus measures in 2020 that have been essential in boosting confidence in the new home market and ensuring demand for Aussie timber framing remains strong.
AFPA CEO, Ross Hampton said while domestic timber demand has held up to this point, the need to continue to Buy Aussie Timber First remains strong in 2021.

“While the renewed demand for new houses built using our renewable timber products is welcome, it is not time for complacency as we will continue to face strong economic headwinds this year, the most significant being a decrease in forecast population growth of only 0.2% down from 1.7%, caused by almost zero net migration levels due to COVID-19 restrictions,” said Mr Hampton.

“To ensure the ongoing viability of the domestic timber industry, we want to remind all levels of government that ongoing stimulus is vital to maintain demand for new home construction, which is the engine room for growth and jobs in Australia’s economy.

“We want to thank our customers and fellow Aussies for their ongoing support, and we encourage every new homeowner, builder, carpenter, specifier or architect to keep choosing and buying timber framing to help us all recover from COVID-19.”
COVID-19 impacts will continue to place significant pressure on timber industry operations, putting local jobs at risk and impacting people’s livelihoods, especially in regional areas.

Compared with alternative building materials, timber framing is produced via a low emissions manufacturing process and has many inherent advantages including being renewable, recyclable, storing carbon, and significantly lower embodied energy.

“When timber is manufactured today, it is replanted for tomorrow, making it the ultimate renewable with flow-on benefits that support a whole value chain of regional jobs and communities,” said Mr Hampton.

Animal Food Market Report 2021: COVID-19 Impact And Recovery To 2030

Animal Food Global Market Report 2021: COVID-19 Impact And Recovery To 2030

The Business Research Company’s Animal Food Global Market Report 2021: COVID-19 Impact and Recovery to 2030

LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UK, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — New year, new updates! Our reports have been revised for market size, forecasts, and strategies to take on 2021 after the COVID-19 impact: https://www.thebusinessresearchcompany.com/global-market-reports

Growing awareness among cattle farmers and pet owners about the advantages of probiotics for animal health is leading to the increased use of probiotics in the animal feed for farm animals like cattle, horse, ruminants and poultry. According to the pet food market research report, increasing advancements in molecular biology and gene sequencing are allowing researchers to dig deep for finding new probiotic applications for animals, in feed and consumer packaged health products. The significant rise in adoption of probiotics in the animal feed for farm animals has shown beneficial results in terms of animal performance, digestion and immune system. For instance, the US based company, Bactana Animal Health has completed its first round of funding for developing a novel bacterial stain of Faecalibacterium prausnitzii for commercial livestock usage. Such pet food market trends drive the pet food industry as well.

The global animal food market is expected to grow from $233.79 billion in 2020 to $243.09 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4%. The growth is mainly due to the companies rearranging their operations and recovering from the COVID-19 impact, which had earlier led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges. The pet food market size is expected to reach $316.04 billion in 2025 at a CAGR of 7%.
