Animal Sciences and Industry (B.S.) - Production/Management Option


Courses in the department give instruction in selection, breeding, feeding, management, and marketing of beef and dairy cattle, horses, poultry, sheep, swine, and companion animals, as well as instruction in the processing and use of the products these animals provide. There are six options of study to choose from: animal products, bioscience/biotechnology, business, communications, production/management, and science/pre-vet.

In addition to classrooms, office space, and laboratories located in Weber and Call Halls, the department maintains several animal and poultry units within easy access to the campus that house the beef and dairy cattle, horses, swine, sheep, and poultry used for teaching and research.
