The Animal Science Shop is committed to preparing students for a career and/or higher education in animal agriculture by providing rigorous animal science content and relevant, hands-on experiences in various aspects of the animal science industry. Students in animal science will be prepared to help safely feed America through responsible animal husbandry and biosecurity practices. Our students also get the background necessary to take the next steps in pursuing a career in veterinary medicine. With high expectations for academic performance and attention paid to helping students build a strong work ethic, the Animal Science shop is working to prepare the next generation of animal agriculturalists. Our facilities and resources include the school’s own Oliver Smith Farm, complete with barns and handling areas on over 500 acres of managed land. Oliver Smith Farm is home to a working beef herd, a dairy herd, goats, sheep, pigs and equine; all to enhance the learning experience for students in animal science.
