    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course for all introductory students in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. It is a fantastic introduction to a broad variety of topics that students will explore in more depth in further courses. Overall, I recommend for those who have any interest in animal husbandry and the decisions that are made involving their well-being.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a great deal in this course, because it is excellently designed to introduce key facts and situations for each subject without going too in-depth into each. There are a wide variety of subjects covered including anatomy, meat analysis, livestock management, facility design, and nutrition. The course also does a great job combating both sides of media arguments, which is an incredibly important real-world problem agriculture students and workers face.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Studying for the exams is challenging, because all material is testable, not just the major concepts. Focus on words, definitions, and relationships between things in the anatomy and nutrition sections, especially with dairy production. Also know the concept graphs, such as parturition and feed intake, because you may have to draw one.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this class. Dr. Doumit is a really awesome teacher, he doesn't rush students to learn things and answers every question asked by students. If he doesn't know the answer he finds the answer and gets back to the student within a day. The topics covered in the course are really interesting if you are interested in cows.

    Course highlights:

    This course covers basic background information that will be needed for all future classes. Remember what is taught because you will use it in all of your other classes. In this class you will learn everything from importance of digestion, reproduction, and nutrients.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study. This course isn't hard by any means. It is really easy to do really well if you just spend an hour a day reviewing. I made flash cards of possible test questions, fill in the blanks, and terminology.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would completely recommend this course for a major that may involve animals in some way. It is important to know how animals function and what is the proper way to care for animals, as well as gain knowledge as to where animal food products come from and how they are cared for before processing.

    Course highlights:

    So far we have learned a lot about the scientific classification of different animals and how different breeds are used for human use.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely study for quizzes and pay attention to little things during lectures that are not mentioned on the powerpoints.
