New Issue of Healthy Animals Now Online

By Kathryn Barry Stelljes
November 22, 1999

The second issue of "Healthy Animals" is now online at:


This online newsletter compiles Agricultural Research Service news and expert resources on the health and well-being of agricultural animals and fish. The current issue highlights ARS research on transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE) diseases, like scrapie of sheep and goats and chronic wasting disease of elk and deer.

Web browsers 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, parasites and vaccines. 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.

Each quarter, one article in "Healthy Animals" focuses on a particular element of ARS animal research, such as ARS’ approach to tackling TSEs.
