Abstract

The Department of Animal Science strives to excel in the three primary missions of a land grant university which are learning, discovery, and engagement. The collection is composed mainly of publications generated by the Animal and Range Sciences Department.

Historical Note

Courses related to animal science have always been taught at South Dakota State University. In the earliest years, livestock of all sorts was the focus. Separate departments were often established for specific types of animals, such as poultry. General courses were taught through other departments as well. Over the years, specialization decreased, and eventually the departments were combined. The focus of the department was expanded to include management of rangeland.

The Department of Animal and Science offers instruction leading to the BS degree with majors in animal science or range science. The curriculum is designed to prepare students for careers in livestock production, related agriculture business enterprises, farming and ranching, natural resource management on both private and public lands, or graduate study.

Composed mainly of publications produced by the Department of Animal Science. Folders consist of programs, reports, proceedings, and newsletters.
