headline bar

As the existing 5-year NP 101 Food Animal Production projects near their completion in 2022, the scientific advances made through these projects have and will continue to drive and expand research opportunities in the next 5-year cycle.  Advances in science have allowed greater depth of knowledge of biological function than ever before and ARS scientists continue to be scientific leaders in discovery and application of these findings to food animal production.    

Research focusing on livestock production efficiency has far-reaching impacts, as efficiency is an all-encompassing term in food animal production. Efficiency improvements involve both animal feed and non-feed resource utilization. Key drivers and focal areas include:

All with goals focused on offering solutions that ameliorate concerns for animals produced for food.
