  1. Introduction to Animal Science

  2. SCIENCE a process through which nature is STUDIED, DISCOVERED, and UNDERSTOOD.

  3. Animal Science The PROCESS through which LIVESTOCK ANIMALS are STUDIED and UNDERSTOOD.

  4. Animal Science Involves BREEDING, feeding, care and MANAGEMENT of animals; MARKETING and PROCESSING of animals and their PRODUCTS based on knowledge gained through practical EXPERIENCE and RESEARCH.

  5. Domestication To adapt an animal for human use

  6. Five requirements for domestication 1.The animal is VALUED and there are clear PURPOSES for which it is kept. 2.The animal’s BREEDING is subject to human control. 3.The animal’s SURVIVAL depends upon humans.

  7. Five requirements for domestication 4.The animal’s BEHAVIOR (psychology) is changed in domestication. 5.Morphological (STRUCTURAL) characteristics have appeared which occur rarely if at all in the wild.

  8. Wild animal not GENETICALLY altered by artificial selection for use by humans Example

  9. Tame wild animal a wild animal that, through intervention of man, has adapted BEHAVIORALLY so as to be useful to humans. Example

  10. Exotic animal a wild animal belonging to a species whose historic native range lies totally outside NORTH AMERICA Example

  11. Domestic animal an animal that has been genetically altered from the original wild species for use by humans through ARTIFICIAL SELECTION Example

  12. Feral animal a DOMESTIC animal that lives in the WILD with no human assistance Example

  13. Feral population a REPRODUCING group of FERAL animals Example

  14. Species a group of closely related animals that can INTERBREED and produce FERTILE offspring Example

  15. Breed animals of common ORIGIN with characteristics that distinguish them from other groups within the same SPECIES Example

  16. Type animals of the same SPECIES that are grouped together based on the PRODUCTS they produce Example

  17. Functions of Livestock Food Clothing Power Recreation

  18. Food Meat Eggs Milk Honey

  19. Clothing Wool Leather Hair/Fur Feathers

  20. Power Horses Mules, Donkeys, Burros Llamas, Alpacas Oxen, Water buffalo, reindeer, yak, camels
