ANSC 2300 - Introduction to Domestic Mammalian Behavior

Spring. 2 credits. Letter grades only.

E. Conant.

An introduction to the behavior of domestic mammals and how behavior relates to management and welfare. Course explores both normal and abnormal behaviors of farm and companion animal species. Some discussion of how these behaviors relate to animal welfare is involved but behavior, its development, and its purpose within and across species, is the main focus.

Outcome 1: Understand and articulate general concepts related to mammalian behavior and the study of mammalian behavior.

Outcome 2: Demonstrate an understanding of how behavior informs about the welfare of a domestic mammalian species and evaluate the welfare of an animal in a given scenario.

Outcome 3: Summarize and compare categories of behavior (i.e. maternal behavior) between species, noting similarities and differences as well as proposing potential benefits and costs of the behavior(s).

Outcome 4: Recognize and define “problem behaviors” and suggest potential causes for the behavior.
