AMES, Iowa  -- The third annual Iowa State University (ISU) Animal Industry Report is now available online and on CD-Rom. This report features a variety of animal industry-related research done at Iowa State which was supported by the Iowa Agriculture and Home Economics Experiment Station.
 
Maynard Hogberg, chair of the ISU animal science department, said the complete report is available online at www.ans.iastate.edu/report/air/.
 
"The report combines reports from researchers on campus and out in the state, as well as including research that relates to the beef, dairy, poultry, sheep, goat and swine industries in Iowa," Hogberg said. "This year's report is organized by species and also has sections on animal products, the environment and companion animals."
