Animal health, beef cattle production, food science, forages and pastures


The faculty and staff of the Animal Science Program are pleased to present the sixth edition of the Arkansas Animal Science Report. As with virtually all programs in the country, budget constraints presented serious challenges to teaching, research, and extension programming. However, the faculty and staff responded with innovation, good management, and hard work to maintain a productive program designed to benefit the students of the University and the citizens of the state. We are committed to remaining faithful to our Land-Grant mission. A sincere thank you is owed to Dr. Zelpha Johnson and Dr. Wayne Kellogg for editing this publication. We are proud that Meat and Poultry magazine ranked the animal and poultry programs at the University of Arkansas among the top four in the United States for 2003. This is a tribute to the dedicated and talented faculty in the Departments of Animal Science, Poultry Science, and Food Science and to their high level of cooperation.
