Science in Your Shopping Cart

Improved dairy cows and beef cattle, turkeys, and chickens? You knew it all the time; it's the Agricultural Research Service! This illustrated booklet tells the ongoing story of ARS contributions to the abundance, variety, convenience, and healthfulness of the contents of American shopping carts. Color, 36 pp.
