Lee Southern, Doyle Chambers Professor in the School of Animal Sciences, has been named chairman of the National Research Council’s committee to update the publication, Nutrient Requirements of Swine. This committee consists of 10 national and international scientists. These committees are appointed once every 10 to 15 years and usually work on these publications for two years. They review all the scientific research generated during the preceding decade to make their revisions. The National Research Council is the working arm of the National Academy of Sciences, Institute of Medicine, and National Academy of Engineering. It was created to advise the federal government and advance science and technology.
