The Animal Science Research Webinar Series is designed to highlight results from completed research projects funded by the Animal Science Committee of the National Pork Board.

These results have direct application to production and therefore pork producers will find this information to be valuable as they make management decisions that affect productivity and profitability. The webinar will be presented by the principal investigator from each project and webinar participants will have the opportunity to interact with the investigator following the presentation.
