Introduction to the principles and physiology of animal management, the contributions of animals and animal products to humanity, the application of science to to animal production, and issues regarding animal production. The course includes biological aspects of animal science such as animal behavior, anatomical and physiological aspects of reproduction and nutrition, animal breeding and genetics, and human/animal interactions. Normal management and production techniques (including proper terminology) as well as social issues and current events related to livestock, equines, and companion mammals are discussed. Prerequisite: None. Course is 3 credits. Class meets Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 8:30 to 9:20 a/m/ in 201 Riddick Hall. Fall semesters are restricted to new incoming Animal Science Freshmen. Open to all students in Spring and Summer.

Student Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:



  • Describe the importance of animals to humans for food, fiber, health, and social reasons.

  • Explain how science is applied to management of animals through the study of discipline areas such as physiology, behavior, nutrition, genetics, health, biotechnology, and genomics.

  • Name the terms used for general aspects of animal anatomy (including names of external body parts) and physiology for domestic livestock, equines, and companion mammals.

  • Define terms used to describe mature males and females, neutered males, and immature males and females for domestic livestock, equines, and companion mammals.

  • Outline the main components of animal health and general management systems.

  • Explain the economic and social importance of domestic livestock, equines, and companion mammals, and describe two main concerns society has for each species.

  • Name and describe  five career opportunities with domestic animals, including qualifications needed for each type of employment.
