New Issue of Healthy Animals Now OnlineBy Laura McGinnis
April 16, 2007
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 the ARS National Animal Germplasm Program.
Other research highlighted in this issue includes:
- How genetic sequencing promotes cattle health.
- New procedures for early identification of Eimeria species.
- Using models to predict disease outbreaks.
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. 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.
ARS is the U.S. Department of Agriculture's chief scientific research agency.
