Extension agent Glen Fukumoto (HNFAS) recently returned from the island of Pohnpei in the Federated States of Micronesia, where he was doing work on water quality and piggery systems as part of his MultiState Extension project with the college’s Pacific Island land-grant partners.
Kyle Caires (HNFAS) gave two presentations on his collaboratory research at the XXIVth Annual Meeting of the Brazilian Society of Embryo Technology in Florianopolis, Brazil, on improving reproductive success in Wagyu or ‘Japanese Black’ cattle and characterizing the microbiota of the vaginal tract of sheep.
Swine specialist Halina Zaleski (HNFAS) is quoted in an article about the resurgence of Hawai‘i’s pork industry published in Honolulu Civil Beat. She explains that pork is a critical part of many cultures in Hawai‘i—not just any pork, but the whole pig, which makes it unique in terms of livestock production and opens a critical space for local producers.
