Introduction to Animal Science Book Excerpt:

Introduction to Animal Science, is one in a series of Just The Facts (JTF) textbooks created by the National Agricultural Institute for secondary and postsecondary programs in agriculture, food and natural resources (AFNR). This is a bold, new approach to textbooks. The textbook presents the essential knowledge of introductory animal science in outline format. This essential knowledge is supported by a main concept, learning objectives and key terms at the beginning of each section references and a short assessment at the end of each section. Content of the book is further enhanced for student learning by connecting with complementary PowerPoint presentations and websites through QR codes (scanned by smart phones or tablets) or URLs. The textbook is available in print and electronic formats. Based on the feedback from the first edition, our second edition has been revised. Minor errors and broken links were corrected as well as the addition of more illustrations to create a more effective teaching tool.

Introduction to Animal Science Book Excerpt:

The study of the biology of animals which are controlled by humankind is known as animal science. The production and management of animals which live on farms are also dealt with under this discipline. Some of the various animals which are studied within this field of study are livestock animals such as sheep, pigs, cattle and horses along with companion animals such as dogs and cats. Animal science also makes use of other disciplines of science such as microbiology, animal behavior, genetics, physiology, reproduction and nutrition. There are various industries where animal science is applied. A few of them are livestock breeding industry, pharmaceutical industry and animal feed industry. This book provides significant information of this discipline to help develop a good understanding of animal science and related fields. Students in this field will be assisted by this book. Coherent flow of topics, student-friendly language and extensive use of examples make it an invaluable source of knowledge.

Introduction to Animal Science Book Excerpt:

Innovative in content and perspective, this introduction to contemporary animal science puts all of animal science in perspective by examining not only the traditional biological topics (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). The Value of Animals to Man. Factors Affecting World Agricultural Structure. Worldwide Systems of Agricultural Production. Introduction to Nutrition. The Gastrointestinal Tract. Feedstuffs. Genetics. Animal Breeding. Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering. Reproductive Physiology. Lactation. Animal Behavior and Handling. Animal Health and Diseases. Vertical Integration. The Beef Cattle Industry. The Dairy Cattle Industry. The Poultry Industry. The Swine Industry. The Sheep and Goat Industries. The Horse. Companion Animals. The Llamoids. Rabbits. Aquaculture. Careers and Career Preparation in Animal Science. Animals As Consumers of Grain: Asset or Liability. Food Safety. Animal Welfare and Animal Rights. The Role of Animals in Sustainable Agriculture. For anyone interested in an expanded view of contemporary animal science.

Introduction to Laboratory Animal Science and Technology Book Excerpt:

Introduction to Laboratory Animal Science and Technology discusses the principles involved in the healthy maintenance of animals in the laboratory or animal house. This book is divided into eight six units of study of the physical requirements of animals, physiological data, and techniques of husbandry, followed by summary data capsules and recommended further reading. After an overview of the laboratory animals, this book goes on dealing with various aspects of animal care, including their accommodation, health care routine, and animal health and hygiene. The next chapters examine the components of animal diet, the biological aspects of animal reproduction, breeding and heredity. The final chapter emphasizes the legal requirements concerning anesthesia, laboratory procedures, and the issue of euthanasia. This book will prove useful to laboratory technicians, students, students, researchers, and the general public who are concerned for animals and their use in laboratory work.

Critical Role of Animal Science Research in Food Security and Sustainability Book Excerpt:

By 2050 the world's population is projected to grow by one-third, reaching between 9 and 10 billion. With globalization and expected growth in global affluence, a substantial increase in per capita meat, dairy, and fish consumption is also anticipated. The demand for calories from animal products will nearly double, highlighting the critical importance of the world's animal agriculture system. Meeting the nutritional needs of this population and its demand for animal products will require a significant investment of resources as well as policy changes that are supportive of agricultural production. Ensuring sustainable agricultural growth will be essential to addressing this global challenge to food security. Critical Role of Animal Science Research in Food Security and Sustainability identifies areas of research and development, technology, and resource needs for research in the field of animal agriculture, both nationally and internationally. This report assesses the global demand for products of animal origin in 2050 within the framework of ensuring global food security; evaluates how climate change and natural resource constraints may impact the ability to meet future global demand for animal products in sustainable production systems; and identifies factors that may impact the ability of the United States to meet demand for animal products, including the need for trained human capital, product safety and quality, and effective communication and adoption of new knowledge, information, and technologies. The agricultural sector worldwide faces numerous daunting challenges that will require innovations, new technologies, and new ways of approaching agriculture if the food, feed, and fiber needs of the global population are to be met. The recommendations of Critical Role of Animal Science Research in Food Security and Sustainability will inform a new roadmap for animal science research to meet the challenges of sustainable animal production in the 21st century.
