Animal science is an elective that animal lovers and outdoor lovers take at Foley High School. It’s a very entertaining and informational class. You learn all about animals, machinery on the farm, and crops. It’s the class you have to take before taking veterinary science. Most of the time you get to go outside to walk the dogs, feed the calf, or work on the fence when we have time.
So, what’s the hype about taking animal science? Well, I’ll give you tons of reasons why its the best!
Animal science is a class where you can learn about beef cattle while a dog is laying in front of your feet or a cat is sprawled out on top of your notebook. I usually stay after school on Mondays and Fridays to take care of the classroom animals such as the dogs, cat, bunny, guinea pig, and calf.
Pretty soon, we will have ten ducklings waddling around.
Everyone I know in animal science absolutely loves the class. Rachel Triezenberg says, “I like animal science because it teaches me how to be safe around animals and how to care for them. I like being around the animals during my class. If I could be in there all day, I would.”
I decided to ask Dr. Beth Taylor why she likes to teach animal and vet science. She says, “I love animals and I love to teach. It’s fun to watch students be passionate about something they weren’t passionate about before they got in my class.”
So if animals and being outside are your hobbies, then definitely talk to your counselor about registering for animal science.
