|Field of Study:||Animal Sciences, General
|Description:||Animal scientists study the feeding, breeding and management of domestic animals, particularly those of agricultural significance. This field of science encompasses subjects ranging from herd genetics and high-performance diets to animal vaccines and environmentally sound animal management, with a focus on transferring this knowledge into practice. More and more, animal science professionals are committed to devising innovative solutions to the challenges posed by a growing world population with changing patterns of diet, a finite amount of farmland and changing climatic conditions.
Areas of emphasis in the U of S Animal Science program include biotechnology, genetics, computer modelling, nutrition, animal behaviour and welfare, sustainable production systems and management, pasture management, and forage production.
