Veterinary Extension

Researchers at Penn State, other Land Grant Universities, and the Agricultural Research Service generate information that can be used to solve important problems related to food, health and the environment.

The goal of our extension program is to critically evaluate and translate this information into a form that can be used by Pennsylvanians to improve their businesses and their lives.

Penn State Extension Animals and Livestock Information
Penn State Extension delivers animal education and programs in four primary areas: dairy, equine, poultry, and livestock (including sheep, swine, beef cattle, and goats).
A "metabolic profile" is defined as a series of specific analytical tests run in combination and used as a herd-based rather than individual-based, diagnostic aid.
