About this subject area

ANIMAL SCIENCE is described as "studying the biology of animals that are under the control of mankind".Historically, the animals studied were farm animals, including livestock and horses, but courses available now look at a far broader area to include companion animals, for example dogs, cats and exotic species. The study of animal science is concerned with the scientific understanding of how animals work: from the physiology and biochemistry of tissues and major organ systems down to the structure and function of biomolecules and cells; particular emphasis is given to the study of growth, reproduction, nutrition and lactation of farm and companion animals and how these processes may be optimised to improve animal productivity, health and welfare.
