Animal Systems

We integrate cutting-edge research and skills into practical resources for people in the field, coop, tank or vet’s office.

How Animal Systems Work

Animal agriculture is the largest ag sector in the state. Every day, we focus on uniting our energies to support it.

Animal Systems brings together the disciplines that study food and companion animals, aquatic species, biomedical applications and the environment. Combining the Animal Science, Applied Ecology and Prestage Poultry Science departments into an animal system creates a space for dynamic and innovative collaboration to improve the health of all living creatures.
