The ARSs Healthy Animals Newsletter

The Agricultural Research Service (ARS) recently posted a new issue of "Healthy Animals," available online at the ARS website. This quarterly online newsletter compiles ARS news and expert resources on the health and well-being of agricultural livestock, poultry and fish.

Each quarter, one article in "Healthy Animals" focuses on a particular element of ARS animal research. The current issue examines using climate change as a predictor for parasite- and vector-induced animal diseases. This supports the U.S. Department of Agriculture research priority of responding to climate change.

Other research highlighted in this issue includes:

● Rangeland plants may harbor viruses transmitted by grasshoppers to cattle.

● Two catnip compounds can discourage stable flies' bites.

● Researchers combine two strategies to combat fire ants' spread.
