You can now get a copy of the Iowa State University’s annual animal science research report on a CD-ROM or on-line.

“This year’s report again combines reports from researchers, including those relating to pork, beef, dairy, equine, poultry and sheep industries in Iowa,” says Maynard Hogberg, chair of the animal science department.

The research addresses such things as improving production efficiencies, environmental quality, animal product quality and food safety.

Researchers in the departments of agricultural and biosystems engineering, animal science, natural-resource ecology and management, economics, veterinary diagnostics and production-animal medicine contributed to the report.
