February 12, 2002
The Agricultural Research Service today posted a new issue of "Healthy Animals" at:
This quarterly online newsletter compiles ARS 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 describes ARS research on controlling avian coccidiosis. This costly disease affects poultrys ability to absorb nutrients and can even lead to the birds death.
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 or parasites. 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.
