Areas of Excellence

The mission of the Department of Animal Science is to improve lives through discovery, integration, dissemination, and application of science-based knowledge of animals and animal products. Therefore, we have identified and developed five Areas of Excellence to more effectively fulfill the mission of the Department of Animal Science. The five Areas of Excellence include:

   Cattle Adapted to Tropical and Subtropical Environments
   Pregnancy and Development Programing
   Safety, Quality, and Nutrition of Food Products
   Student and Stakeholder Engagement
   Quantifiable Animal Performance

Influencing the future of animal science

The goals for these Areas of Excellence are to provide focused areas of scholarship within the Department for which we may be or will become a national and international leader. The Areas of Excellence align with the missions of both the Department and College, as well as the strategic pillars of the University. These pillars include providing transformational education for all students, discovery, and innovation and impact on the state, nation, and the world.
