    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    If you're wanting to major in animal science, pre-veterinary medicine, or become a veterinary technician, this course is a prerequisite in order for you to graduate. You learn much about cattle, sheep, goats, horses, and chickens. You also have to work on the farm, I believe 2 hours a week if it hasn't changed since I was in this course.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot on how to manage a farm, diseases of cattle, sheep, goats, chickens, and what is normal for these farm animals regarding weight, structure, temperature, pulse and respiration.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study hard. Pay attention. Read the book. Quizlet helped.
