Hands-on experience and demonstrations with livestock and horses; identification of common management equipment and knowledge of proper use; animal tracts, organs, skulls, feeds, breeds, and other animal-related items or topics. The lecture (ANS 150) must be taken concurrently or have been passed previously with a C-minus or higher. This lab course is restricted to the following majors: Animal Science, Ag Extension, Ag Science, and Ag Education. Transportation is provided to the off-campus labs, and students will be returned to campus prior to the end of the scheduled lab period.

The names of the majors have been spelled out because the curriculum codes have changed since this catalog description was written.  The option for S/U grading was removed because all students enrolled in  ANS 151 are taking it to fulfill a requirement for their major (and therefore would not get credit if it were not letter graded).

College of Agriculture and Life SciencesRobin ClementsAll of the majors that take this course are within CALS. Approval by the CALS Courses & Curricula Committee signifies approval by all affected departments.
The two professors who teach these labs will continue to do so. No changes in scheduling are being proposed, so no new resources are needed.

ANS 151 (Introduction to Animal Science Lab)  is designed to give students practical experience with a variety of domestic mammals.  The course will focus primarily on sheep, goats, dairy cattle, beef cattle, swine, and horses.  Transportation is provided to the Animal Educational Units (teaching farms) where students learn proper handling and care of livestock and horses as well as best management practices and proper terminology.


Student Learning Outcomes

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



  • Describe and explain the physiological rationale for routine management practices used with domestic livestock and horses.

  • Identify, describe, and demonstrate the proper use of common management equipment used with livestock and horses.

  • Identify anatomical parts of animal reproductive and gastrointestinal tracts, and explain the function of each part.

  • Identify and classify common feedstuffs used in livestock and equine management.

  • Identify common breeds of livestock and horses and describe the main characteristics of each breed.

  • Demonstrate proper handling, care, and management practices for sheep, goats, beef cattle, dairy cattle, pigs, and horses.
