The Department of Animal Science at Michigan State University offers education and research for the safe, nutritious and economical production of animal food and fiber, and of animals for recreational purposes, without compromising the environment or jeopardizing the health and well being of farm animals and farm communities. The department provides educational leadership through high-quality courses, research and extension/outreach programs to enhance human capital and ensure that Michigan producers and communities benefit from these.

We have a strong tradition of training outstanding students in animal science and related fields, and welcome prospective students who are interested in our programs and want to contribute to our mission. Graduates of our department have advanced to rewarding careers in universities, government agencies, the livestock industry, veterinary medicine and biomedicine.
