ARS/FAPRU: Effects of animal temperament on fescue toxicosis-induced changes in animal growth and immunological responses

Grants and Contracts Details

Description

This NACA between The Forage-Animal Production Research Unit (FAPRU) and the UK College of Agriculture, Food and Environment is to conduct collaborative research focused on forage-based livestock production. The parties agree that the objectives of this NACA are consistent with research missions of both USDA-ARS and the University of Kentucky Agricultural Experiment Station. The independent interests of the University of Kentucky include a strong commitment to utilizing forages in the region to enhance the economy of the Commonwealth in general and the small- to mid-size farmer in particular. The FAPRU has the mission to improve productivity, competitiveness, and sustainability of forage-based enterprises. This partnership was generated to provide the livestock industry with sustainable technologies, management practices and integrative strategies to improve the conservation and use of pasture agro-ecosystems to support livestock production and other natural resource uses.
