Why Animal Science?

Animal Science (also Animal Bioscience) studies the biology of animals under the control of humankind, usually livestock species, such as cattle, sheep, pigs, poultry and horses.

This degree will teach you the science and business of producing domestic livestock species. An animal scientist applies principles of the biological, physical and social sciences to the problems associated with livestock production and management. Animal Science is also concerned with foods of animal origin: meat, dairy foods, and eggs. The food industry is one of the largest and most important industries in the United States. In addition, animal science is concerned with aspects of companion animals, including their nutrition, care, and welfare. If you are interested in the efficient production of food animals, processing and consumption of high-quality meats and dairy products, use of companion animals for recreation or leisure purposes, or the maintenance of animal health and well-being, then a career in one of the many animal sciences fields may be your key to a rewarding future....
