Animal Sciences

Back to AgriScience & Natural Resources

Animal Sciences (Grades 11 and 12) is one period of a three-period block that will prepare students to demonstrate competence in the application of scientific principles and techniques to the management of animal production enterprises.

This course is designed to provide a forum in which students can study large, small and specialty animals.  Students will explore the necessary elements—such as nutrition, genetics, habitat, and behavior—to create humane, ecologically and economically sustainable animal production systems.  Numerous field trips to various animal enterprises and facilities are an integral part of the course.  Opportunities will exist to enhance 4-H and FFA selection and judging skills.



This course is held in room 304.
