Food Animal Health and Production

Food animals are the main source of protein for people around the world. Maintaining their health and well-being enhances animal welfare as well as food quality and production. Veterinary scientists in the Food Animal Health and Production cluster monitor infectious diseases affecting food animals, develop effective approaches to prevent or treat infections and assess the impact of diseases on food production, quality, and safety. Their efforts align with the grand challenge of feeding the planet responsibly while protecting and promoting food animal health and well-being.
