  1. Animal Science What is Animal Science?

  2. What is Animal Science? • Care, management and production of domestic animals • Animals used for food, clothing, weapons & tools • Today’s animal science includes biotechnology, genetics & behavior research

  3. Domestication • What was the first domesticated animal? • Dog for tracking, then herding • After animals become domesticated, they become dependent on man

  4. Domestication • Most can not survive in wild • Most poultry can not fly, But Why? • They are bred for size which makes them incapable of flight. • Turkeys • Also, some species have their wings clipped at birth • Ducks • Geese
