How old were you when you learned that U.S. Customs and Border Protection relies upon a "beagle brigade" to help sniff out threats to American agriculture at our nation's ports of entry? We were today old. We're working to learn more for you, so stay tuned to upcoming issues of the #GaMarketBulletin! 📸: U.S. CBP

Dapples! Dapples are good!Why do horses get dapples? What are dapples?

A combination of factors works together to make dapples on a horse’s coat: Feeding proper nutrients, keeping your horse fit, brushing out your horse’s coat regularly, and the genes that control hair pigmentation all play a significant role in “dapples”development.
If the genes are aligned, most well-conditioned horses’ show dapples when fed a nutrient-rich diet. Giving the coat an added boost requires regular grooming and a good parasite prevention program.
Oh, and thanks Jackson, for being today’s dapple model.

The emergence of the 17-year cicada never fails to attract interest. In 1885 a USDA entomologist wrote of the wonder of an insect that has appeared at regular intervals of 17 years "for centuries, aye, for ages, in the past!" This is the year Brood X will emerge, and sightings have already been reported in Lumpkin, Gilmer, Pickens and Union counties. In the days to come we'll be sharing reader images of cicada sightings, so show us yours. We'll start with a USDA drawing of the transformation of the cicada, published in 1898. #GaMarketBulletin

Georgia needs a rabbit processing facility. There are a lot of rabbit producers in Ga. without a place to process. Could you look into this please?
