  • New vaccine for cattle protects against fetal calf loss from EBA – anatomy of a vaccine development
    A new vaccine just approved by the USDA in September promises to turn the tide against Epizootic Bovine Abortion, also known as the foothill abortion disease, that has caused devastating losses in range cattle exceeding $10 million annually in California, Oregon and Nevada.
    The vaccine, developed through extensive research at the University of Nevada, Reno and the University of California, Davis, was commercialized by Hygieia Biological Laboratories of Woodland, California, and is now available to the cattle industry. This license marks a pivotal advancement in decreasing those substantial calf losses and comes as the result of decades of work by generations of scientists and cattle producers.

  • Study in Thailand identifies benefits of community-based freshwater fish reserves
    Freshwater fish reserves are extraordinarily successful at protecting multiple species of fish, a new study of a network of community-based reserves in Thailand has found.
     Aaron Koning, a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Nevada, Reno’s Global Water Center, spent seven years studying a network of freshwater protected areas (fish reserves) that communities established in one branch of the Salween River Basin in northern Thailand.  
    He mapped more than 50 reserves, all community organized and managed independently of government support, throughout the river and its branches. The area supports more than 40 species of fish, ranging from large minnows to catfish to needlefish. The results are published this week in the scientific journal Nature in the article “A network of grassroots reserves protects tropical river fish diversity.”

PCHS coaches bestow many awards during an active sports season. Often they go to the swiftest and strongest, but sometimes the coaches recognize other qualities. Readers can see for themselves the values the program encourages by studying three recent Lovelock Review-Miner athletes of the month. They each won the prize last spring.
