Animal science is the study of growth, breeding, genetics and reproductive biology of livestock. It involves caring for, selling and growing livestock, and focuses on the scientific research of animals, including drugs and poisons that directly affect livestock.
Animal science is a productive major for students who want to do graduate work in the animal sciences or who want to pursue a career in livestock production. There is a large variety of job opportunities, including caring for pets, ensuring safe food supplies, preserving endangered species, and protecting the public from animal-borne diseases.
