With a recent drop in hatchability and health, a new patented method developed by associate professor of animal science Mary Anne Roshni Amalaradjou improves outcomes without antibiotics, which are increasingly banned due to the rise of antibiotic-resistant bacteria – a threat to human and animal health.

Amazing work, Dr. Amalaradjou! 🔎🐣

Happy #FoalFriday! 🐴🐴🐴

Don't forget, you're Invited! Come Join the UConn Foal Club!

We're thrilled to announce that six foals were born on the UConn campus this spring! To celebrate, we're inviting all horse enthusiasts to join the UConn Foal Club! To join, donate $10 or more per foal and receive a custom digital photograph of your chosen foal(s). If you'd like to suggest names for the 2024 foals, please submit your top two choices for the foal(s) you'd like to support by joining the foal club before June 30, 2024. All names will be reviewed by the equine unit management for consideration. If your name is chosen, you'll have the opportunity to take a photo with that foal later this summer. 

Notes: 
- All names must begin with the letter "E" 
- Morgan = UC ____ / Non-Morgan = ____ UC 
- Example: UC Lady Patriot x Battersea Xanadu = UC Earl of Battersea / Devine Nostril X Red White & Good = Ever So Clear UC 

Learn more and join the club by visiting: https://s.uconn.edu/foals

On Friday, we said goodbye to our friends from Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Veterinary Education and Research (RIVER). These students spent several weeks at UConn, rotating between animal science, pathobiology, and veterinary science labs, gaining hands-on experience with our faculty and grad students as part of a formal agreement with the UConn College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources.

We hope you had a great time learning with us and we wish you all the best for the future!

Exciting news! Our heifer, UConn Helix Maxine, was recently recognized by Holstein Association USA as a top performer in the Class - MATURE 3X 305D Milk Leader Category for the state of Connecticut! 🎉🐮

This achievement is only possible due to the dedication and care of our animals in our dairy and livestock facilities by the Kellogg Dairy Staff. Thank you all for all you do! 💙
