Animal Science has enjoyed a significant increase in students from urban areas. We have also witnessed a dramatic expansion of knowledge in Animal Agriculture. In response to these phenomena this lab manual has been thoroughly updated and numerous illustrations have been added. it is our sincere hope that this seventh edition will better serve the needs of today's students.

The beginning Animal Science student is showered from all sides with a barrage of useful information. It comes so rapidly, is so varied and so general in nature, that it is difficult for him to catalogue this information in any semblance of order.

This manual is designed to fill that need by providing the student with a careful planned and arranged group of exercises concerning each of six classes of farm animals: beef cattle, dairy cattle, swine, sheep, goats, and horses. The introductory information coupled with the illustrations and additional material given by the laboratory instructor will provide the student with a well filled livestock handbook worthy of keeping as a permanent reference.

A portion of the manual is prepared in the form of discussions and introductions to the subject material. Illustrations and suitable note-taking guides will help make note-taking systematic. How accurately and completely the handbook is filled at the completion of the course will depend upon individual attentiveness and participation in the laboratory periods.
this is an introductory course; therefore, the basic exercises will cover livestock selection, marketing, slaughtering, breeding, feeding, and the many varied management practices so vital to the stockman's success.

It is the purpose and desire of the authors to stimulate the student who already has a love for livestock to pursue that interest by taking the advanced Animal Science courses in their proper sequence. To the student who is relatively new to the fascinating field of interest, it is our purpose and desire to help him develop a basic understanding and real appreciation for efficient livestock and their importance in our American agriculture.

The material used in this manual and presented by the laboratory instructor has evolved through many years of teaching and research by the Animal Science staff of the Texas A&M University. the authors wish to acknowledge the use of material from Fundamentals of Animal Husbandry by W.M. Warren, and the assistance of J.W. Bassett, O.D. Butler, Fred Hale, G.T. king, G.T. Lane, J.C. Miller, J.K. Riggs, and T.D. Tanksley.
