Help the Hellbender
Rescue efforts are in full force to save the hellbenders as Purdue partners with three Indiana zoos. The North America's largest salamander is in decline nationally and is most vulnerable to predators when young. Dr. Rod Williams, associate professor of wildlife science, is leading this crucial research to raise and release hellbenders back to their habitat.
Bull
Testing bulls for reproductive health is even more important now for beef cattle producers because feeder calves are expected to generate record prices this fall, a Purdue University veterinary scientist says.
Sheep shearing
The Indiana Sheep and Wool Market Development Council, administered by the Office of Agricultural Research at Purdue University, is now accepting applications for funding requests for any program promoting the sheep industry.
Purdue Extension's Women in Agriculture Team is offering a series of agribusiness webinars for those who want to improve their management, planning and employee engagement skills.
