The Department of Animal Sciences, with strong roots in the Land Grant tradition, has as its mission “to improve the health and well-being of animals, including humans, through integration of teaching, research, and outreach.” Our department aspires to be a global leader in training the next generation of scholars in the areas of comparative endocrinology and integrative physiology, equine science, and companion and laboratory animal science.

Ag Field Day/Rutgers Day - April 25
Plan to join us on the Cook Campus Farm on Saturday, April 25, for Ag Field Day/Rutgers Day. As usual, our students will be participating in the animal shows (beginning at 10 AM), petting zoo, Equine Science Center demonstrations, and other activities. Stop by the Society of Animal Science BBQ (between the Dairy Boarding House and the Dairy Barn) for a bagel or burger. Our grad students will be selling desserts and root beer floats at a nearby booth. Hope to see you there!
Farm Tours Available
The Department of Animal Sciences has developed a Farm Tour Program aimed at guiding small groups of children and/or adults around the cattle, goat, horse, pig, and sheep facilities on Sheepfold Lane.
