By Laura McGinnis
July 8, 2008

The Agricultural Research Service (ARS) today posted a new issue of Healthy Animals at:

http://www.ars.usda.gov/is/np/ha/han34.htm

This quarterly online newsletter compiles ARS news and expert resources on the health and well-being of agricultural livestock, poultry and fish.

Each quarter, one article in Healthy Animals focuses on a particular element of ARS animal research. The current issue examines interagency efforts to promote U.S. aquaculture.

Other research highlighted in this issue includes:

  • A new, eco-friendly barley for forage;
  • The release of avian influenza genome sequences; and
  • Efforts to protect oysters from burrowing shrimp.

Professionals interested in animal health issues may want to bookmark the site as a resource for locating animal health experts. An index lists ARS research locations covering approximately 70 animal health topics. 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.
