Animal Sciences

Have it in your “head” that a career working with animals is for you? This “hand”s-on glimpse at animal sciences will help you determine if you have the “heart” for the “health”y care of animals as they are raised from “farm to fork”. The 4H tenants are embodied in this course as students get a true FFA (faculty, facilities, and animals) experience in the field. Participants will experience the fundamental disciplines of reproduction, nutrition, production management and meat sciences of domestic livestock. Students will be afforded access to state-of-the-art department laboratories and farm facilities, so come prepared to work hard and get your hands dirty. If you are ruminating about a career with ruminants, stop grazing and start gazing to see if the highly diverse field of Animal Sciences is where you belong!
