NEW: Applied Animal Science, Volume 35 (2019) Available for Your Consumption

Dave Beede, PhD, Editor-in-Chief of AAS, PAS, Dipl. ACAN

The February and April issues of Applied Animal Science (AAS) (, volume 35, are online and ready for your consumption!

It is hoped that the name change to Applied Animal Science from The Professional Animal Scientist will attract new and more authors from the global animal science community and serve a broader spectrum of readers in the ever-changing landscape of animal science and production systems. Additionally, with the name change, notable changes were made to the Policies and Instructions for Authors ( Key changes include new Science and Application categories to help define the scope and table of contents of the journal, use of a new structured abstract format to give busy ARPAS readers a succinct encapsulation of each article, and the “Applications” section to summarize and emphasize how the information can be applied in animal production and science.
