The heat is on—both literally and figuratively. While the country is currently enduring a severe heat wave, the temperature (and stress level) is high in companies, too. That’s because many employees are being asked to work longer and harder and to accomplish more in less time and with fewer resources. In this issue of The Animal Science Monitor, Don Hunter and I are going to tackle this issue head-on. It’s an issue that we feel very strongly about and that we’ve addressed before within the pages of the newsletter. So take a few minutes to relax and enjoy this issue of The ASM. After all, we’re sure you deserve the break.
