|An animal scientist studies animal
husbandry--the breeding and raising of livestock, such as cattle for milk and
meat production. Animal scientists are always looking for better answers to
many questions: What's the most nutritious and economical diet to feed a cow or
a steer or a lamb or a chicken? What's the best way to try to make sure an
animal mother has the most or the healthiest babies? Some animal scientists,
such as veterinarians, also study livestock diseases and how to identify, cure
or prevent them.
