If your animal care and use program includes agricultural animals and you are in need of information, you have come to the right place! The resources in this section may be of value and for additional information, refer to the Guide for the Care and Use of Agricultural Animals in Research and Teaching (Ag Guide, 2020), American Dairy Science Association®, the American Society of Animal Science, and the Poultry Science Association 2020. The Ag Guide, 2020 is one of AAALAC International’s Primary Standards used to assess accreditation.
Applying for AAALAC accreditation demonstrates a commitment to continuous animal care and use improvement and quality science. Contact the AAALAC International Office with questions.
