The Animal Science course is designed to provide an overview of the animal science industry. It provides information on the biological make-up of various species of agricultural livestock. It also provides students with information on animal behavior that would be beneficial before embarking on a career in Animal Science. This course is a good prerequisite for other courses in Animal Science.
Typical instructional activities include hands-on experiences with the principles and practices essential in the production and management of farm animals and farm animal products for economic, recreational, and therapeutic uses; participating in personal and community leadership development activities; planning and implementing a relevant school-to-work transition experience; and participating in FFA activities.
This is a senior-level class that meets 1st Semester on B-day afternoons.
