Outreach and Extension
While extension specialists are trained in specific areas, such as animal breeding, behavior, nutrition, reproduction or meats, all focus on global issues of management, environment, production and economics for all livestock species. Extension programs initiated from faculty members within the Department of Animal Sciences work to span across disciplines, other departments and universities. Agronomy, forages, economics, and environment play key roles in implementing all extension programs. Animal Sciences Extension is a part of a larger group, the Alabama Cooperative Extension System (ACES), one of the nation’s largest, most scientific, and best-researched providers of information and education.
Find a variety of informational fact sheets, extension circulars, AAES publications, links and other resources on equine breeding, care, research, health and more.
