    | No strong feelings either way.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it in conjunction with nursing or anatomy and physiology, the class teaches you about caring for farm animals and livestock. the class gives the student experience handling animals over the course of the three year pathway.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the types of digestive systems livestock like bovine have as opposed to horses, the innovation Temple Grandin made in the humane slaughter of livestock. I learned the care that goes into being a veterinarian and just how different "farm animals" are.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Primarily this course is about the physiology of livestock animals and horses. the routine I applied to pass was always take notes from the power point, drill the notes for ten minuets every night, and do an overview every four weeks for thirty minuets on last month's notes.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because it's a four year course that get s you ready for your college. The course is hard if you don't pay attention. You are take a lot of notes and you work in the animal lab. We have four live animals that you learn to care for. We have a bearded dragon, ferret, guenia pig and a chinchilla. You do a lot of projects but with the projects you present them. You have to explain a lot about your project. The class is fun but you must work hard to get in each level. Each level size decreases for those same who don't pass

    Course highlights:

    The highlight were being able to interact with the animals. Learning there personalitys and what the like and watching them grow. We learned how to properly handle animals, what to feed them and how much. What chemicals are safe to clean the cage with well the animals are in the room. We learned about enrichments and we put each enrichment to the test for each animal.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't be slackers, the work isn't hard if you do it. Don't play around or you wouldn't ever see the animals because you don't have the teachers trust.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this class for any student going into the animal field. No matter what you want to be or where you want to go in your animal carer this is a class that will teach you a lot of what you will need and want to know.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about many different types of animals. How you correctly care for, look after, and treat animals. I also gained my animal CPR certification in this class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure that you really want to be around animals. This is an animal based course. You will be expected to work with, care for, and learn about many different types of animals.
