      pan SRUC seminar by Dr Roger Humphry, SRUC on 21st of November 2013. BVDV is an endemic disease of cattle renowned for substantial, but often not obvious, economic losses due. In 2010 the Scottish BVD eradication programme began. In anticipation of the eradication programme the Inverness-based (SAC) Epidemiology Research Unit was commissioned by the Scottish Government to estimate the prevalence of BVD in the national beef and dairy herds. In this talk I present the design of the two (beef and dairy) studies, and the results. I use the analyses of BVD as an example of the utility of a statistical technique called “finite mixture modelling” and describe the pros and cons of this technique when dealing with continuous disease data.

          pan SRUC seminar by: Rainer Roehe, Animal Breeding and Genomics, SRUC, 29th of January 2015. Beef cattle are showing large variation in feed efficiency and methane emissions. As feed costs typically account for 70-80% of the variable costs of beef production, genetic improvement of feed efficiency will have a high economic impact on beef production and indirectly on mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions in particular methane. However, costs of recording of individual feed intake using electronic feeders and methane emissions in respiration chambers are high so that proxy methods for prediction of these traits are of substantial interest. Experiments on SRUC’s Beef Research Centre Easter Howgate have provided fundamental results for developing novel strategies for genetic improvement in these difficult to measure traits. The basis of these strategies is on characteristics of rumen microbes -the microbiome- which will most likely revolutionise the breeding for these traits in future.

                This documentary is about divisions that exist that resulted in the near destruction of a species, the forces that brought wolves back from the edge of extinction, and the polarizing positions among stakeholders. Set to the story of eleven wolves who brought the subject to our doorsteps in the mid-90's, this story is about what future we will choose while worldwide evidence of the perils of wrong human choices. This is a story of eleven wolves known as The Sawtooth Pack: Wolves of the Nez Perce and how their legacy is threatened by the same forces that nearly eliminated their species.

                  pan SRUC seminar by Alistair Stott, SRUC on 11th of September 2014. Our Group stretches from the Epidemiology Research Unit in Inverness down to the Dairy Research Centre in Dumfries. On the way it takes in the Hill and Mountain Research Centre in Crianlarich, Carbon Management Centre at KB and the Beef and Sheep Research Centre on the Bush Estate. We are interested in understanding and so facilitating change in farming systems to better prepare them for the future. This gets us involved with farms, farmers and their advocates as well as the component research projects we bring together to guide change at whole system level. This seminar will illustrate this process by example, introducing the people and facilities involved. The aim will be to raise awareness and encourage greater engagement with and use of our work.
