Meat is worldwidely known to be a nutrient rich food. It provides valuable amounts of proteins,vitamins such as retinol and vitamin B12 and minerals namely iron, selenium and zinc with an increased bioavailability than found in other dietary sources [1]. Along the production chain, meat can get contaminated by a wide range of spoilage and/or pathogenic microorganisms from the farm, slaughtering environment and distribution. The actual number of foodborne infections attributable to meat is difficult to assess accurately, principally because only a small proportion of illness cases is officially reported. However, by using outbreak data published internationally, Greig and Ravel [2] reported that 12.7 % of reported foodborne outbreaks were attributable to beef while 10.5 and 4.6 % were associated with chicken and pork, respectively. According to the same authors, Salmonella spp. and pathogenic E.coli, respectively, were identified as the causal agents in 32.9 and 34.6 % of foodborne outbreaks of bacterial origin attributable to beef. The objective of this study was to determine the meat consumption pattern in different socio-conomical categories of the population of Kigali city and to assess the bacteriological quality of the consumed meat.

Meat is consumed worldwide as a source of animal proteins, but it is recognized as one of the most important vehicles for food borne infections in humans. This study was conducted to determine the daily intake; the levels of hygiene indicator bacteria, namely the total mesophilic bacteria (TMC) and Escherichia coli counts (ECC); and the prevalence of Salmonella in meat consumed within the households of Kigali (Rwanda). The survey on meat consumption was carried out in 400 households by using a questionnaire, whereas the bacteriological analyses of meat samples were performed by using conventional culture methods. The results from the survey indicated that beef was the type of meat mostly consumed in Kigali city households, and the daily meat intake significantly varied with the social category of the household. No significant difference was observed between daily meat intakes in different age classes of household members. In the samples where microorganisms were detected, the average levels of TMCs and ECCs in raw meat were found to be 5.4 and 1.6 log cfu/g, respectively, whereas in cooked meat they were significantly reduced to 3.1 and 1.1 log cfu/g, respectively. The prevalence of Salmonella was reduced from 21.4% in raw meat to 3.4% in ready-to-eat cooked meat. Salmonella was not detected in cooked meat consumed in high-income households. The results from this study highlight the need for hygiene improvements in meat shops as well as in the households of Kigali, particularly those with low and medium incomes. [less ▲]

This study presents a data set of daily, 1 km resolution Greenland ice sheet (GrIS) surface mass balance (SMB) covering the period 1958–2015. Applying corrections for elevation, bare ice albedo and accumulation bias, the high-resolution product is statistically downscaled from the native daily output of the polar regional climate model RACMO2.3 at 11 km. The data set includes all individual SMB components projected to a down-sampled version of the Greenland Ice Mapping Project (GIMP) digital elevation model and ice mask. The 1 km mask better resolves narrow ablation zones, valley glaciers, fjords and disconnected ice caps. Relative to the 11 km product, the more detailed representation of isolated glaciated areas leads to increased precipitation over the southeastern GrIS. In addition, the downscaled product shows a significant increase in runoff owing to better resolved low-lying marginal glaciated regions. The combined corrections for elevation and bare ice albedo markedly improve model agreement with a newly compiled data set of ablation measurements. [less ▲]

Facing growth in demand, dairy production in peri-urban areas of developing countries is changing rapidly. To characterise this development around Bamako (Mali), this study establishes a typology of dairy production systems with a special focus on animal genetic resources. The survey included 52 dairy cattle farms from six peri-urban sites. It was conducted in 2011 through two visits, in the dry and harvest seasons. The median cattle number per farm was 17 (range 5–118) and 42% of farmers owned cropland (8.3± 7.3 ha, minimum 1 ha, maximum 25 ha). Feeding strategy was a crucial variable in farm characterisation, accounting for about 85% of total expenses. The use of artificial insemination and a regular veterinary follow-up were other important parameters. According to breeders’ answers, thirty genetic profiles were identified, from local purebreds to different levels of crossbreds. Purebred animals raised were Fulani Zebu (45.8 %), Maure Zebu (9.2 %), Holstein (3.0 %), Azawak Zebu (1.3 %), Mere Zebu (0.5%) and Kuri taurine (0.1 %). Holstein crossbred represented 30.5% of the total number of animals (19.0% Fulani-Holstein, 11.2% Maure-Holstein and 0.3% Kuri-Holstein). Montbéliarde, Normande and Limousin crossbreds were also found (6.6 %, 0.7% and 0.3 %, respectively). A multivariate analysis helped disaggregate the diversity of management practices. The high diversity of situations shows the need for consideration of typological characteristics for an appropriate intervention. Although strongly anchored on local breeds, the peri-urban dairy systems included a diversity of exotic cattle, showing an uncoordinated quest of breeders for innovation. Without a public intervention, this dynamic will result in an irremediable erosion of indigenous animal genetic resources. [less ▲]

Dairy milk production in Moc Chau contributes to improve the welfare of farm households. It generates daily income for farmers, provides a highly nutritious food for people, create employment opportunities for the society. Although it brings a rather high income for farmers, their lives are very hard, and their living standard is quite low.This studyaims to apply a monitoring system in farms to assist farmers improving their performance. Six field trips were carried out to help dairy farmersto monitor their farmsand collect economic and technical data in 2010-2012 in Moc Chau.The main findings are: stocking rate, milk yield and income were rather high but varied largely from this farm to others.Cost control in farm was not good thus dairy margin was not high. Purchased feed cost was too high.Homegrown feed accounted for a small part of cost but produced large amount of milk while purchased feed dominated a very large proportion of cost but produced less milk quantity.Most of the farmers followed the objective of increasing milk production but did not pay attention to the quality of herd and milk; did not make an optimal decision.Experience, land area, and herd size were the major factors that increased economic performance in farms.
