"Healthy Animals" is a new online compilation of Agricultural Research
Service news and expert resources on the health and well-being of
agricultural animals and fish. The "Healthy Animals" web site is at:
Updated quarterly, the new web site provides links to recent ARS research
accomplishments involving the health of cattle, chickens, turkeys, swine,
sheep, goats, horses, catfish and other aquaculture fish species, as well as
related research on deer and other wildlife. 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 produced the new web site to help inform veterinarians, researchers,
producers, animal industry groups, news media and others interested in
research. The site does not provide treatment advice for producers with sick
animals or give individualized recommendations.
Web browsers may want to bookmark the site as a resource for locating
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.
Each quarter, one article in "Healthy Animals" will focus on a particular
element of ARS animal research. The first issue highlights the four ARS
national programs devoted to keeping animals healthy and productive: Animal
Health, Animal Pests and Parasites, Aquaculture, and Animal Well-being and
Stress Control Systems.
