To accomplish the mission of the Poultry Processing and Swine Physiology Research Unit scientists are working in cooperation with regulatory personnel (FSIS, APHIS), poultry and red meat companies, and university faculty and graduate students.
Since 1974, the Swine Physiology research program has provided a forum for collaboration between USDA and scientists at University of Georgia, Iowa State University, industry, and the National Pork Board and Georgia Pork Producers Association. Swine Physiology scientists hold faculty appointments at the University of Georgia.
ARS continually looks for opportunities to partner with private sector businesses, other federal agencies, state and local governments, universities, and its customers. These partnerships are designed to augment research programs, expedite research results to the private sector, exchange information and knowledge, stimulate new business and economic development, enhance U.S. trade, preserve the environment and improve the quality of life for all Americans.
