Federation of Animal Science Societies (FASS) releases outcomes of the National Forum on the Future Science Needs of Animal Agriculture
The Federation of Animal Science Societies has released the outcomes of The Farm Animal Integrated Research (FAIR) 2012 Forum that was held March 4–6, 2012, in Arlington, Virginia. The purpose of FAIR 2012 was to establish research, education and outreach priorities for animal agriculture. More than 160 animal scientists, veterinarians and university, government and industry representatives met to discuss issues of food security, animal and human health, and responsible environmental stewardship. This was the third national forum, which have all been held nearly every five years to coincide with the U.S. Farm Bill deliberations. The priorities developed at the forum are designed to provide input to the $3.2 billion federal agricultural research, education and economic programs.
