The sixth annual Iowa State University Animal Industry Report is now available online and on CD-ROM. The report features summaries on all animal research conducted at Iowa State in the past year, and was supported by the Iowa Agriculture and Home Economics Experiment Station.
“The report combines reports from researchers on campus and out in the state, as well as including research that relates to the swine, beef, dairy, poultry, sheep and goat industries in Iowa,” says Maynard Hogberg, chair of Iowa States' animal science department. “This year’s report is organized by species and has sections on animal health, the environment, as well as companion animals.”
A variety of professionals conducted the research contained within this report, including Iowa State faculty, staff and graduate students; visiting scholars; Iowa State Extension county and field staff; and collaborators from other universities.
“The research covers topics such as improving production efficiencies, environmental quality and food-animal product quality,” Hogberg notes. "These all are important aspects of keeping animal agriculture strong and viable, and contributing to Iowa's economy and quality of life.”
