The Science of Animal Agriculture, third edition is designed for courses aimed at teaching science along with concepts associated with the industry of animal agriculture. This book responds to the current trends in education that promote connecting academic theory with real world applications. Research shows that students gain a better grasp of scientific theory if the theories are taught in an application context, and this text presents the application of biological science used in producing and caring for animals. Topics such as nutrition, anatomy, genetics, entomology, pathology, and animal behavior are covered in depth. These complicated areas are presented in the context of how they are used in the animal industry, allowing the student to make a distinct correlation. Students will benefit from this science-based, animal agriculture text that makes complicated biology principles easy to grasp the context of their application.

I appreciate the fact that the author addresses animal rights vs animal welfare and consumer concerns with the animal agricultre industry.
My students get Life Science credit so I must cover many of the basic science principles as well as principles of animal sceince. For this reason, I like the fact that the lab manual starts students with some basic science labs, like the Scientific Methos and Calssification.
