Internal Information

The Department of Animal Science (ANS) maintains livestock farms that produce and house agricultural animals that are used across the MSU community. The livestock farms are an integral part of the teaching, extension and research programs in the Department of Animal Science.

For information regarding the use of animals at the livestock farms, please download the following form:


If your course involves direct contact with live vertebrate animals for the purpose of demonstration or hands on student participation you need to complete an Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) Animal Use Form (AUF) for your course. If the animals are from an Animal Science farm an Animal Science Department Animal Use Form is also required.
