eXtension is pleased to announce a new Community of Practice on Companion Animals. The leader of this CoP is based at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln. More information on the CoP will come in future Updates.

Three additional Communities of Practice make information available to the public. The Niche Meat Marketing Community and the Goat Industry Community have released content. The Bee Health Community will “soft launch” content this month. This community provides information on pollinator species.

eXtension, in response to current public health issues, has released Cooperative Extension resources on influenza A (H1N1) virus (Swine Flu). The site provides articles, news items and other related information on the virus. The content is a trusted reliable source of information for end users.
