This quarterly online newsletter compiles ARS news and expert
resources on the health and well-being of agricultural animals and fish. The
current issue highlights ARS research on livestock genomics.
Web browsers may want to bookmark the site as a resource for
locating animal health experts. An index lists ARS research locations covering
about 70 animal health topics. These range from specific diseases, such as Lyme
disease, to broad subjects like nutrition, parasites and vaccines.
The site also provides complete contact information for the more
than 25 ARS research groups that conduct studies aimed at protecting and
improving farm animal health. Each quarter, one article in "Healthy Animals"
focuses on a particular element of ARS animal research.
