We are excited about the good things happening in Animal Science! We apply land-grant principles of learning, discovery and engagement for the benefit of students, consumers and clientele associated with animal agriculture. In the past few years, our research productivity and relevance has been ranked 7th and 5th, respectively, in national comparisons of Departments of Animal Science. Our priority areas of research and corresponding expertise of faculty include:

  • Nutrition
  • Reproductive biology
  • Livestock production systems
  • Meat science and food technology

Animal Science offers a combined curriculum with Veterinary Science. Therefore, students can major in Animal and Veterinary Science (ANVS) in one of eight options including:

  • Production
  • Pre-veterinary medicine
  • Business
  • Communications
  • Range livestock
  • Meat science and food technology
  • Animal biology
  • Equine

In addition, we offer an emphasis area in Ag Education, a Plan A (thesis) and Plan B (non-Thesis) Masters, and a  Ph.D. graduate program in our priority areas of research.

If you have questions, or we can be of assistance, please contact us!
