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 in livestock nutrition. Scientists want to make sure there is forage
available that meets the nutritional requirements of farm animals.
As a professional interested in animal health issues, you 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.
