Pinterest may be well known as a digital scrap book, but it can be used for more than collecting your favorite photos into categories. It's also a great platform for saving pictures, diagrams, infographics, and links to important livestock health topics. While I didn't originate this idea, I have created many boards focused on livestock health that you can follow individually or as a whole set here. The information on these boards are pinned from a wide variety of websites created by veterinarians, farmers, ranchers, extension offices associated with universities, and reputable trade publications.
While none of the articles, tips, and advice should be used as a substitute for consulting with your veterinarian, they can give you a great education in basic animal husbandry practices, health precautions, disease risks, as well as proper care and management of livestock.
My enthusiasm for science is at the heart of all the multimedia materials I write and produce. As a graduate student at Colorado State University studying rangeland management, I focus on livestock health, nutrition, as well as rangeland ecology. I work part-time as a media coordinator and video editor for the CSU Equine Reproduction Laboratory, and I blog about my livestock and range management experiences in Colorado.
