    Within this class the information is basic general knowledge. If you are familiar with farm animals and handling you will do well in this class.All of the speakers read solemnly off the power points provided.

    Course highlights:

    Going to the different farms for labs were exciting.The first lab is always the tour and the second is hands on.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention in the tours of your labs.It will most likely be on your quizzes.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    This class was AWESOME! We were able to get hands on experiences with live animals and learn a lot about animal agriculture.

    Hands on experience with animals from tipping sheep (not hurting them) and reaching inside a cows stomach (again, not hurting them)

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it! One of the best decisions I have made. It was pretty easy if you paid attention and the topic was very interesting.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this class to anyone interested in working with animals. It is all encompassing in the way it overviews the health, lifestyle, and business opportunities involved with each major group of animals (ie. cattle, pigs, horses, companion animals, etc.) It provides you with a broad range of career ideas and really allows you to explore the world of agriculture and animal care to help you determine what your passion truly is. Also, it has a lot of hands on learning, which is unique to an introductory class.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights to this course were definitely the weekly labs. I got to learn first-hand what facilities for each type of animal business looked like and operated. I also got to handle the animals and get a good sense if I could see a career in each specific field. The labs also allowed for students to ask as many questions as they could think of. I personally took the lab time as a time to explore possible career fields and ask specific questions about each field to help me determine where I want to work some day.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would encourage students to attend every lecture. There isn't much repeat in material and the conversations that occur in lieu of questions asked by students can pertain to you as well and give you more information than the textbook could. A few questions on the exams are out of the textbook, so reading the textbook is still a good idea, but honestly the lectures teach so much and give such good advice on how to get into each possible business, you can't miss them.
