Food Animal Integrated Research (FAIR) 2002

Food Animal Integrated Research (FAIR) 2002, a policy document serving as a road map to guide future research, education, and extension activities in the animal industry, is the outcome of the second national conclave convened to establish consensus on animal agriculture research and education priorities for the 21st century.

NIFA was heavily involved in leading this national conclave. More than 250 leading animal scientists, farmers, ranchers, environmentalists, animal welfare proponents, commodity group representatives, government staff including NIFA, rural advocates, and agribusiness and food service representatives met. They determined the most pressing research and education needs of the animal industry that are economically competitive, environmentally friendly, and socially acceptable.

Researchers, educators, and extension specialists are using the FAIR 2002 policy document to guide their efforts.
