A digital revolution in animal health is underway as new technologies are developed to predict, monitor, and diagnose animal disease. The development of these digital technologies puts new tools in the hands of veterinarians and animal owners to help prevent illnesses and manage health conditions before they occur.
These technologies have the potential to revolutionize the animal health landscape with significant benefits for sustainable livestock production, food security and pet ownership.
A critical barrier to the adoption of these digital tools is the available digital infrastructure. That’s a key reason we’ve been a part of the American Connection Project Policy Coalition and join them in applauding Congress for passing the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. This legislation contains significant investments in rural broadband which will provide a foundation for realizing the significant animal health benefits of new digital technologies.
