This quarterly online newsletter compiles Agricultural Research Service news and
expert resources on the health and well-being of agricultural animals and fish.
Each quarter, one article in "Healthy Animals" focuses on a
particular element of ARS animal research. The current issue looks at
ARSs two state-of-the-art quarantine facilities for studying dangerous
diseases such as foot-and-mouth disease and bluetongue.
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.
