Animal Science

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.  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.

Areas of emphasis in the program include physiology, genetics, nutrition, feed processing, animal behaviour and welfare, sustainable production systems and management, pasture management, and forage production. This program prepares students to work in traditional animal agriculture fields including care, nutrition and management of beef and dairy cows, swine and poultry.
