ANIMAL U promotes involvement in animal agriculture and allows all youth the opportunity to increase their knowledge. It also enables more young people to become involved through accessible, straight-forward, and research-based information.
- Connect more young people to animal agriculture and promote its application to everyday life.
- Create an understanding of the relationship between animal agriculture and the science and technology that supports it.
- Promote the variety of potential careers associated with food production through real-world experiences.
Animal U is a program developed through Iowa State University Extension and Outreach and Iowa State University Department of Animal Science . The program manger is Dr. Amy Powell, Extension Youth Animal Science Specialist. This project is a collaboration of Extension subject matter experts, faculty members, commodity groups, and industry partners.
