Dr. James Neel, Research Animal Scientist, is assisted by Matt McDougal, Summer Aide, and Wendy Halvorson, Biological Science Technician, in extracting blood samples from sheep that are grazers in an assortment of pasture management systems. Animal performance and health data are two of many factors AFSRC scientists use to assess the suitability of management systems for central Appalachia.
