Why Are We Tackling Animal Systems Challenges?
The demand for animal proteins continues to increase, as do the challenges for livestock producers. Producers are eager to reduce reliance on antibiotics, minimize environmental impacts, maintain productivity and improve animal welfare.
Scientific solutions to these challenges can help producers raise healthy, productive animals. Our research ensures that livestock, poultry and aquaculture producers thrive. These solutions also provide consistent access to affordable, nutritious food.
We created the Advanced Animal Systems Challenge Area to enhance animal production. We focus on rigorous scientific research that addresses the urgent problems producers face. Our Advanced Animal Systems research specifically develops solutions that improve animal health and welfare, bolster producer profitability and sustain our food supply.
