 Agricultural Research: Animal health programs in ARS - Agricultural Research Service
Across the nation, in Agricultural Research Service laboratories from Pullman, Washington, to Brooksville, Florida - wherever animal scientists are at work - that statement is a constant.
The goals of ARS animal research, in addition to developing the best food animals for the consumer, are disease prevention, diagnosis, and treatment for animals.
Whether the research goal is a proposed new animal vaccine, diagnostic test, or treatment, at some point its efficacy and safety must be tested on the animals for which it is intended.

 USDA:- Agricultural Research Service.
Stabel, of the USDA Agricultural Research Service, and a member of the National Johne's Working Group, conducted a laboratory simulation of commercial High Temperature Short Time (HTST) milk pasteurization process.
The USDA ARS researchers found that MAP did not survive their simulation of pasteurization, a result that is in disagreement with almost every other pasteurization study ever conducted, including studies from the USA, England, Northern Ireland and Australia.
Although the USDA researchers may have attempted to accurately simulate the conditions of commercial HTST pasteurization, what they failed badly to simulate was the conditions which MAP bacteria experience in real world milk taken from real-world cows with Johne's Disease.
