New Issue of Healthy Animals Now OnlineBy Jim Core
December 19, 2002
The Agricultural Research Service today posted a new issue of Healthy Animals at:http://www.ars.usda.gov/is/np/ha/han13.htm
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.
