    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommended this course for all those future veterinarians out there. If your passion is towards animal science this is a great introductory course to take.

    I learned things that I never knew before. I received hands on experience with animals on the farm while also learning what tools are used for their up keep.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always stay on top of your work. Read your notes every day not only to memorize it but to know it because you will see this information again in the near future.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course will allow you to be exposed to different career paths in the animal science career and will also expose you to different types of animals through the different labs that are combined with the class.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about different career I could possibly go into later in my life. I also learned about different animals and their systems, what types of things animals are used for, where and how they came about, etc.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study everything and take notes on everything the professor says. Anything that is said in that class can and will be on the test. It could be the most simplest think said, but it would be a multiple choice question on the next test.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because there are so many opportunities in the agricultural field. Without this course I would not have known the many different branches of agriculture there are such as; USDA-APHIS Veterinary Services, US Wildlife Services, Fish and Wildlife Services, etc. It is the beginning course for majority of the agricultural majors at my school. This is because it covers such a broad horizon of agriculture majors such as soil science and nutrition science. These of which, I never heard of until taking this course. This course prepares well prepares students to take on the shrinking agricultural field, while providing a fulfilling education in the many different sectors of agriculture.

    Course highlights:

    What I gained from this course is being able to have conversations with professionals in the veterinary field. I am currently interning with the USDA-APHIS Veterinary Services. Here I am working with veterinarians in many different aspects if the field. The work ranges from collecting BSE (mad cow disease) samples to make sure there is no outbreaks, doing tuberculosis testing, and scrapie sampling. Each one of which I never heard of before taking the course. Now when they talk to me I can have a knowledgeable conversation with each of the vets. They have a greater respect for me because I have prior knowledge in each of the subjects. I have also picked up great study habits, and without them I would not have retained the information to even hold these conversations.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Advice I would give to students considering taking this course is, make sure you have an interest for agriculture. If you didn't know much about it before, you will by the time it is over. I also advise students to take it serious from day one because there is so much information to learn and there will be many tests and quizzes. Due to the large amount if information being learned cramming and studying last minute does not work. I learned that from experience, and it is not easy, and your grades will surely reflect the amount of time you put in to study. Also, do not stress about it and do not let it overwhelm you. This can have such a negative impact on how well you retain information and make it very hard to do so.
