Animal Science

80 linear feet of materials from 1850 to the present

Livestock production, growth, and management are the primary concerns of collections in this subject category. Both the scientific and commercial aspects of raising animals for food or fur are represented, with themes ranging from breeding and nutrition to herd management and ranching enterprises. There is an emphasis on the California livestock industry, but some collections focus on Central and South American concerns.

Related material can be found under the subject headings of California History, Entomology, Food Processing and Manufacture, and Natural Resources, as well as in the archives of the Animal Science Department and the Veterinary Medicine Teaching Hospital.
