Jul. 23, 2012, College Station, TX – The National Association for the Advancement of Animal Science is focused on improving funding for animal agricultural research.

According to an article in AgriLife Today, the association is composed of university department heads from across the U.S. from the animal, dairy and poultry science departments. The new association will work with other groups to advocate for increased funding for animal sciences.

“Federal funding for research, education and extension in the animal sciences has remained stagnant over the last 30 years,” said Dr. Russell Cross, president of the association and head of the animal science department at Texas A&M University.
