FAHN is an international, peer-reviewed open-access journal that aims to publish high-quality manuscripts. All accepted articles are published quarterly in open-access full text. FAHN publishes the results of original scientific studies, reviews, case reports, and short communications, in all fields of farm animals and nutrition science.

Manuscripts involving dairy and beef cattle, swine, poultry, horses, sheep, goats, or other species that serve mankind are welcome. Manuscripts on animal and farm management related to disease control and prevention, animal well-being, microbiology, agricultural economics, and environmental opportunities or challenges are also encouraged.
