Guide for the Care and Use of Agricultural Animals in Research and Teaching (2020)
Published by the Federation of Animal Science Societies (FASS), this is the fourth edition of the Guide for the Care and Use of Agricultural Animals in Research and Teaching, commonly referred to as the Ag Guide.
"Previous editions were titled the Guide for the Care and Use of Agricultural Animals in Agricultural Research and Teaching. This edition drops the second use of the word agricultural in the title. By doing so, the title reflects a new philosophy. Farm animals have certain needs and requirements and these needs and requirements do not necessarily change because of the objectives of the research or teaching activity. Therefore, regardless of the teaching or research objective, the FASS Ag Guide should serve as a primary reference document for the needs and requirements of agricultural animals."
