28/11/13: 10 years of grain harvests in China; DEFRA enforces animal passport rule; new appointment at German feed additive company

The Chinese Ministry of Agriculture predicted a healthy year of grain production, making 2013 the country's tenth consecutive year of increased output, said Xinhua News, the official Chinese press agency last Friday.

In a statement surrounding the production, the Chinese government said that this is the first time the country has achieved 10 consecutive years of rising grain since the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949.

A campaign to save the lives of two cows is currently underway in the UK.

The animals - lovingly named Lloyd and Leila - face the slaughterhouse after Government officials ruled they could not be transferred to an animal sanctuary because they don't have a passport to travel.

The Department for Environment, Farming and Rural Affairs (Defra) currently refuse to allow the 120-mile journey to the Hillside Animal Sanctuary, Norwich, despite a petition signed by almost 14,000 people.

Lloyd and Leila currently reside at Stepney City Farm, a working farm in East London, UK. However, the farm said it no longer has the means to support the animals after rail line Crossrail took over their grazing field.
