AMES, Iowa -- A newly updated listing of swine research and extension faculty members at Iowa State University (ISU) is now available on the Iowa Pork Industry Center (IPIC) Web site. This updated version is current as of January 2007, and includes photos, contact info and main research areas for approximately 60 faculty and staff members based either on campus or at county ISU Extension offices. The table of contents is organized by subject matter, and individuals are listed in alphabetical order under their respective department.
IPIC director John Mabry said the updated list is a useful tool for anyone interested in swine production, and encourages people to get acquainted with the names and faces in the list.
“We want everyone to be aware of the breadth of research pertaining to the pork industry being done here at Iowa State,” Mabry said. “Faculty from a variety of departments in the colleges of Agriculture, Engineering, Human Sciences and Veterinary Medicine are involved in doing research, and they work with our Extension folks on getting those results out to clients who need and want that information.”
