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 ways ARS
is dealing with different arthropod-borne viruses and parasites. Researchers
want to control insect pests indigenous to the United States and keep others
from crossing U.S. borders.
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.
