Summary

For freshman-level introductory courses in Animal Science that reflect the way animal science is today. Animal Science used to be focused only on livestock. Today's courses include companion animals and international animals. Innovative in content and perspective, this text offers a refreshing and engaging approach to what animal science has come to be in the modern age. It puts all of animal science into perspective by examining not only the topics traditionally covered at the introductory level (e.g., major species, nutrition, digestion, feeds, genetics, reproduction, disease, and animal behavior) but by exploring the dynamic nature of animal science and the many ways in which it is a piece of a much larger whole of agriculture (e.g., vertical integration of industry structure) and agriculture within society (e.g., how animals fit into all of society and how animals contribute to the well being of man from a worldwide perspective).
