Animal husbandry Is the art, science, and industry of breeding, feeding, care and management, and the marketing

g and processing of animals and their products for the purpose of obtaining a profit from the enterprise It means the selection of animals on the basis of beauty and good looks in addition to production performance Beauty means the harmonious proportion of the various parts of the body so that they present an overall pleasing sight to the beholder. It means a well ordered and systematic body of knowledge. Scientific method is the process through which data are gathered to determine efficiency of production of farm animals and as a basis of selecting the desirable animals for breeding an art and science combined together to make animal production a profitable enterprise Proper knowledge of breeding, feeding, management systems based on an updated information and desirable marketing practices must be combined harmoniously to bring a desired profit. This aspect brings the business concept to animal production Animal science Animal husbandry and animal science are terms referring to the care, management and production of domestic animals However, the concept of animal science is basically based on scientific testing and experimentation Animal husbandry on the other hand is based on common sense and proven practices handed down from one generation to another. As a result of both animal husbandry and animal science practices, the production of animals has greatly increased: Birds that normally produce 20-30 eggs per year now produce between 200-250 eggs per year Cows that normally produce enough milk for their calves now produce over 20,000 pounds of milk per year. Some meat producing animals have doubled their weight

Animal science has made it possible to produce animals more efficiently such that animals today: grow faster Use less feed Lay more eggs Produce more kinds of cuts of meat Through extensive research, animal science has been able to produce animals with less fat, tender and tastier meat. Zootehnics The keeping and breeding of animals in domestication livestock The term livestock is normally defined as animals raised to produce milk, meat, work, and wool. It includes beef and dairy cattle, swine, sheep, horses, goats, and poultry.

Roughages feeds that are low in digestible energy and high in fiber; feeds such as hay, straw, roots and silage, which are coarse and bulky. Salt Block compressed block of common salt, which is used to supply salt to livestock. Silage feed resulting from the storage and fermentation of green crops under anaerobic conditions. Soilage green forage crops that are cut and fed to animals in fresh condition. Standing Hay grass that has matured and dried out while still standing, i.e., uncut. The value varies roughly in inverse proportion to rainfall but is never as good as properly made hay. Stover the stem and leafy parts of corn plant after the ears have been removed. Straw plant material which has been dried under natural or artificial condition but for which the inflorescence or fruits have been removed. Supplement feed used in combination with basic ration to balance and/or satisfy animals nutrient requirements. It may be fed undiluted as a supplement to other feeds, offered free choice with other parts of the diet separately available, or mixed with other feed ingredients to produce a complete feed. Vitamins organic, natural occurring substance needed in minute amounts for growth, body processes, maintenance, reproduction, work and or production of milk and other products. Fat-Soluble Vitamins includes Vitamins A, D, E, and K which when taken in excessive amounts could be harmful to body. Water-Soluble Vitamins includes Vitamins B, C and B-complex. These are excreted in the urine and are relatively non-toxic introduction During the neolithic period ( New stone age) This era marked the 1st step toward civilization of the most primitive tribes of humans It was the beginning of humanitys transformation from the savage to the civilized way of life from nomads to urban dwellers Man started to domesticate animals by Confining, breeding and raising them in captivity To ensure a steady supply of their needs and became settled. Their activities changed from hunting to farming through domesticating the start of animal science Benefits from animal agriculture: Animals primary products meat, milk, eggs Food that provides nutrients that are essential to human life Animal by products leather, wool, mohair, oils, pharmaceuticals etc. Other important products needed by man Use draft/power, recreation or pleasure Animal domestication the process of developing the mutually useful relationship between animals and humans. Process of adapting the behaviour of animals to fit human needs

Over the past 12,000 years, humans have learned to control their access to food and other necessities of life by changing the behaviors and natures of wild animals. All of the animals that we use today, such as dogs, cats, cattle, sheep, camels, geese, horses, and pigs, started out as wild animals but were changed over the centuries and millennia into tamer, quieter animals. Some of the ways people benefit from a domesticated animal include: keeping cattle in pens for access to milk and meat and for pulling plows; training dogs to be guardians and companions; teaching horses to adapt to the plow or take a rider; and changing the lean, nasty wild boar into a fat, friendly farm animal.

Early Domestication Humans began domesticating animals more than 10,000 years ago beginning with dogs Ruminants (cattle, sheep and goats) were the first food animals to be domesticated followed by pigs Pigs were domesticated possibly to dispose of table scraps and waste products

Domestication involves more than simply taming Animals are considered to be domesticated when: They are kept for a distinct purpose Humans control their breeding Their survival depends on humans They develop traits that are not found in the wild Domestication allowed humans to: Contain animals with the right temperament Have a steady supply of food Use animals for companionship Religious purposes Draft work In return, animals received protection and constant supply of food Selective breeding occurred as humans got rid of animals with undesirable traits, not allowing them to reproduce.

Dogs -from 12,000 years ago The earliest known evidence of a domesticated dog is a jawbone found in a cave in Iraq and dated to about 12,000 years ago.

Sheep and goats, cattle and pigs: 9000-7000 BC The first animals known to have been domesticated as a source of food are sheep in the Middle East. The proof is the high proportion of bones of one-year-old sheep discarded in a settlement at Shanidar, in what is now northern Iraq. They are raised for meat and wool

There are over 200 breeds of domestic sheep The management of sheep is more complex than the management of most animals Goats

Goats were one of the first animals to be domesticated, about 9,000 years ago They are raised for food and clothing Goats are excellent scavengers There are 300 breeds of domestic goats Production of meat-type goats are a current trend cattle

The ox may first have been bred by humans in western Asia. Cattle are divided into beef and dairy breeds Angus is the most popular beef breed and holstein is the most common dairy breed swine

Todays trend in the industry is to produce lean hogs as opposed to the fatter hogs that were grown in the early and middle 1900s horse

Przewalskis horse - the first domesticated horses Size of a pony Still live in Mongolia It was discovered there in the 1870s

In the 1800s and early 1900s, horses were used for power and transportation Most horses are owned for recreation and personal pleasure Of all the thousand of species of animals known today, few are considered to be of economic or agricultural importance These animals are primarily known as food animals, traditionally they are called livestock and poultry Livestock referring to common mammalian farm animals such as cattle, buffalo, hog, goat, sheep and horse

Poultry referring to domestic avian species or birds such as chicken, duck, turkey, goose, quail, etc Domesticate characteristic

1. Survive well in confinement under intensive system 2. Utilize various commercial mix rations/feeds 3. Grow and produce rapidly/ high yield and efficient 4. Have docile and good temperament Non-traditional forms of animal Agriculture

Such as: Crocodile farming Ostrich farming Wild buffaloes, deer, bison, mountain goat and other wild animals

They represent important genetic resources (gene pool) for potential use in animal production or agriculture Marine and aquatic intensive production known as aquaculture Involves the propagation, rearing and marketing of fish, seafoods and other marine products in selected or controlled/modified environment
