AMES – Democratic state Senator Amanda Ragan said today she supports improvements at the ISU Veterinary Diagnostic Lab.

According to Senator Amanda Ragan, this year, Iowa State University is requesting new state funding to expand the ISU Veterinary Diagnostic Lab. The number of diagnostic cases handled by the lab has doubled in the last six years. They now deal with more than 80,000 cases a year, helping protect Iowa’s farmers.

Senator Ragan, of Mason City, recently talked with Dana Rewoldt, with the ISU Research Foundation, about the importance of the Veterinary Diagnostic Lab.

“We talked about the vaccines the ISU vet lab helps develop, and the crucial role the vet lab played in controlling the 2015 bird flu epidemic,” Ragan said. “I support the ISU vet lab expansion. It’s an investment that will be good for public health and for Iowa’s economy.”

On January 30, 2017, an economic study was completed outlining the economic contribution of the ISU Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory, Iowa Staet University says on its website. To read the summarized, 1-page Executive Summary or the Full Report, please see below.

      Besides being a dumbass, you are a liar.
      People do not take their animals to the ISU Veterinary Diagnostic Lab.
      Specimen samples are submitted to the ISU Veterinary Diagnostic Lab for testing by licensed & qualified Veterinarians only.
      You just pull random lies and bullshit out of your ass.
      In the animal world, you would be a prime candidate for “thinning the herd.”
