Intro to Animal Care is a class in which we explore the many ways that animals affect our lives. Selection, feeding, reproduction, health and behavior of large and small animals will be covered. We will deal with domestic animals, including pets and horses. We will look how animals need to be cared for, along with how they are an important part of agriculture. Laboratory activities are offered in animal selection and evaluation, breed identification, health care and handling. This is an entry level class which will expand your knowledge on animals all around us. Students will record skills in AET record system and have opportunities in FFA.
