The allocation of animals to research projects is managed through the ISU Dairy Research Committee, chaired by Dr. Don Beitz. To schedule the use of animals for research purposes complete the ISU Dairy Research Proposal Form and submit it to Mary Healey. Mary will forward your Research Request form to the ISU Dairy Research Committee and to the farm manager, to make them aware of your research plans.
The ISU Dairy Research Committee also meets to discuss research ideas, identify areas for potential collaboration, and to resolve areas of potential conflict among projects. After submitting the ISU Dairy Research Request Form, you will be invited to join the ISU Dairy Research Committee to help ensure your project runs smoothly.
