Animal Science Systems

  • The Animal Science Institute at Locust Trace focuses on the scientific principles that underline the breeding, care, and management of agricultural animals, and the production, processing, and distribution of agricultural animal products. This includes developing better, more efficient ways of producing and processing meat, poultry, eggs and dairy products, as well as studying genetics, nutrition, reproduction, growth and development of animals.

    Students at Locust Trace may choose a specific program within the Animal Science Institute to focus their studies: equine studies, food science studies, or pre-veterinary studies.
