An Illustrated Guide to Animal Science Terminology provides a single resource that includes commonly used terms, and pronunciations relevant to any animal science student without the need of an agriculture background to understand the language of animal science. The text covers traditional production animals, such as swine, cattle, sheep and horses, as well as poultry, companion animals, and companion birds. Extensive use of photographs and line art to clarify the terms, and create a connection between the term and the subject for the student.

This book would be a unique addition in the market and is much-needed for students with a predominantly urban rather than traditional rural and farming background. Students with no livestock experience would find this book useful and, since most new students have no such background, this book would be popular with students and instructors alike.
As an educator I think an Illustrated Guide to Animal Science Terminology is a great idea. We have so many students at the secondary and postsecondary level who come to our classes with little or no background in animal science, and a lot of the problem is that they have never seen the animal science stuff that farm kids grew up with. Also, some of the new science in animal science is difficult for the students to visualize.
