Summary and Implications
Student admissions, placement rates and starting salaries for graduates of animal and dairy science remained strong in 2004. Curricula have been revitalized by the creation of new sophomore courses in animal production and the refocus of senior coursework to enhance emphasis on enterprise management. New faculty members joining the teaching program and planning for both a new multi-purpose animal pavilion and a dairy farm near campus have heightened the enthusiasm about the future of animal science education for students and faculty.
