  • Drenching rains green pastures, bode well AAP - 55 minutes ago

    Drenching rains that recently soaked the Great Plains have brought welcomed moisture to areas still recovering from droughts, greening pastures as ranchers begin the annual rite of moving cattle to the nation's summer grazing lands. Ranchers in Kansas and elsewhere in cattle country are still trying to rebuild herds that were decimated in the 2012 and 2013 droughts, when they sold off much of their livestock because of shriveled pastures and skyrocketing hay prices.

  • YouTube redefines celebrity AAP - 55 minutes ago

    The irony of a YouTube star drawing a massive crowd at a bookstore isn't lost on talent manager Andrew Graham. In its 10-years of existence, YouTube has evolved from a playground for kitty videos to a $20 billion visual menagerie. "If you're trying to reach that audience of girls gathered downstairs, YouTube is the venue to do that.

  • Swipe a code, meet your fisherman AAP - 55 minutes ago

    After eyeing a piece of haddock on the supermarket counter, a customer scans a code and finds out the fish was caught in the waters of Georges Bank and learns the name of the fishing boat - and maybe even sees a picture of the smiling, rain-slickened fisherman who reeled it in. A group of scientists and fishermen said the technology isn't about a gimmick so much as survival. In an era when many sectors of the New England fishing industry are struggling with depleted resources and choking catch quotas, increasing the cachet of local seafood could be the last, best hope, said Ben Martens, executive director of the Maine Coast Fishermen's Association, one of the groups involved in the "Boat to Plate" project.

  • Fido al fresco? AAP - 55 minutes ago

    New York is considering whether to join a growing number of states that give pet dogs legal entree, if not actual entrees, at open-air eateries. Dog lovers and restaurateurs say the proposal would safely accommodate people who want to dine out with man's best friend in places from Manhattan footpath cafes to country ice cream stands. Owners like Michelle Vargas feel the estimated 500,000 dogs in the nation's biggest city have a place in al fresco dining and it's not on the pavement outside a patio railing, where the current law would have them.

  • Input prices rise for sheep and beef farmers Fuseworks - 1 hour 9 minutes ago

    Prices for inputs used on New Zealand sheep and beef farms increased 1.1 per cent in the year to March 2015, according to the latest Beef + Lamb New Zealand (B+LNZ) Economic Service sheep and beef on-farm inflation report.

    Consultation on new proposals to manage the blue cod fishery in the Marlborough Sounds will begin on 2 June.

  • Commodities markets summary AAP - 1 hour 43 minutes ago
