The health and wellbeing of animals matters to all who care for them. SDSU Extension staff provide research-based information and resources. As the outreach arm of South Dakota State University, our team, which includes SDSU Extension Veterinarian & State Public Health Veterinarian, Russ Daly, collaborates with the faculty and researchers on campus and the Animal Disease Research and Diagnostic Laboratory.

The term “One Health” has been coined to describe the concept that the health of people, animals and their environment are inextricably linked. The most commonly considered examples of One Health in practice are zoonotic diseases. For pork producers, influenza strains that originate in pigs, but pass to people are a pertinent example.
