Scientists say developing genetic tools to limit Bovine Respiratory Disease, or BRD, will do just that. Holly Neibergs with Washington State University explains.
Currently, in a multi-university, 5-year study, researchers from several disciplines are looking at BRD. They know there is a genetic connection. Now the team is working to uncover the details. Answers are just on the horizon. The research project wraps up in the next two years, and they’re optimistic about the practical results.
