In case you missed last week’s AgManager.info update, here are some of the highlights!
Our resident researchers, Melissa McKendree, Glynn Tonsor and colleagues provide responses to survey questions assessing in their research paper entitled on U.S public and cow-calf producer perceptions of animal welfare in the beef industry. The results are available in the research paper “Viewpoints of the U.S. Public and Cow-Calf Producers on Animal Welfare in the Beef Industry.”
A hearty welcome to Dr. Dustin L. Pendell as the new addition to the Department of Agricultural Economics at Kansas State University. His broad research interests include livestock and animal health issues that span from the producer through the meat supply chain to the final consumer. Dustin’s interdisciplinary research has been funded by federal agencies and commodity organizations and appears in various academic and outreach publications.
