Animal science is divided into specific disciplines, or specialties as follows: (8 of Them) – Animal Genetics – Animal Nutrition – Animal Physiology – Animal health – Ethology – Meat science – Dairy product science – Biotechnology
approximately___billion large farm animals and ___billion poultry throughout the world. 4.5 and 19.8
Poultry numbers have increased more rapidly at an average rate of over__annually. 5%
• meat supplies approximately____ • milk provides approximately____, • fish supplies approximately____, • and eggs supply___. 49.5%, 25.8%, 16% 8.7%
Meat, eggs, and dairy products are important food sources because they are Nutrient Dense
Annual per capita meat supply ranges from over____. in affluent countries to very little in poor countries. 300 lbs
The___is the most important meat source, producing__of the world’s meat pig 38%
World meat production has increased steadily for many years at an average rate of___per year 2%
Cattle supply___of the world’s milk supply. – Buffalos supply ___of world’s milk. 83% 13%
In addition to meat, poultry species produce a_____high quality product—____. Second Eggs
sheep (____and Persian lambskins), • goats (_____and mohair), wool Cashmere
xenotransplantation (what happens to a pig liver and human liver) the replacing of human organs with those from animals, is an active and promising area of research
• The stresses of the natural and/or artificial environment that affect animals may be classified as: (5 of them) -climatic stresses, – nutritional stresses, – internal stresses, – geographical stresses, – and social stresse
_______or______changes are changes in form and structure. Morphological Anatomical
Two terms,__________and________, refer to a country’s level of economic development Developed Countries Developing Countries
___________are usually small, labor-intensive farm units. __________are usually large range units. Intensive Systems Extensive Systems
________is the study of how the body uses the nutrients in feed to sustain life and for productive purposes. Nutrition
________are substances required for life processes, reproduction, growth and lactation Nutrients
The nutrient classifications are: . – water, – carbohydrates, – vitamins, – minerals, – proteins, – and fats (lipids)
The amount of nutrients depends on: – type of species, its digestive tract, and any peculiarities of its metabolism; – and the level of production and the product(s) being produced (work, fetus, growth, milk, eggs, and fiber).
Monogastrics, or nonruminants are one stomached, or simple-stomach animals. Include chicken, turkey, swine and horse
ruminants —cattle, sheep, goats have four compartment stomach. Pseudoruminants (llamas) have three
Prehension, the means an animal uses to bring food into its mouth, is the first step of digestion.
• Mastication • , or chewing, involves the action of the jaw and teeth to crush the food.
Salivation includes secretion and mixing of saliva with food
The small intestine is divided into three portions: duodenum jejunum ileum
The large intestine has three parts: (CCR) the cecum, the colon, and the rectum.
Defecation is the discharge of excrement from the body via the rectum or cloaca.
Micturition is urination
The complex stomach is comprised of four compartments: – rumen, – reticulum, – omasum, – and the abomasum.
genotype, sets the stage for traits such coat type, coat color, speed, body composition, growth, reproduction, milk production, disease resistance, and other
