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.

SDSU Extension publishes the Livestock Newsletter to provide South Dakota producers, industry professionals and consumers with timely research-based recommendations.
During the November 7th Animal Care Wednesday Webinar, updates regarding several livestock transportation topics were shared by two presenters. Chase DeCoite discussed the Beef Quality Assurance Transportations (BQAT) certification program. Allison Rivera provided brief updates on the discussions happening in Washington D.C. around electronic logging devices (ELD), truck weights, and hours of service for truckers.
