Animal science is a scientific study of the growth, breeding and biology of livestocks in Malaysia
Do you love trekking in the jungle and admiring the vast flora and fauna that surrounds Malaysia? Have you always been fascinated by animals, from the common chicken, cattle and cat, to the much rarer Rhinoceros Hornbill? Is it true that animals can mate with themselves? If yes, how do they reproduce? You’ll learn the answers to all these if you choose to study Animal Science in Malaysia. Read on as we dig deeper into what it entails.

A career in Animal Science will not only let you live out your passion for animals, you will get paid for that passion too.
With so many degree options out there, here are some top reasons why you should study Animal Science:
Animal researchers indirectly help put food on our tables. Animal researchers work with Agriculturists to enhance creature reproduction, development and nourishment. At the point when creatures develop well and remain solid, Agriculturists can deliver more meat, milk or eggs for our utilisation.
Animal Scientists pay attention to the little details after the reap. They check meat quality or screen milk for pathogens. Advances in their wellbeing increases the world's supply of nutritious nourishment.
Instead of just fighting for animal rights, you get to play a part in improving the lives of animals, humans and ultimately, the ecosystem. With more people populating the earth, there will definitely be an increase in meat consumption. So who is responsible to replenish that and ensure there is a never-ending supply of poultry? Why, an Animal Scientist of course!
“When I began in 1960, individuality wasn't an accepted thing to look for; it was about species-specific behaviour. But animal behaviour is not hard science. There's room for intuition.”
- Jane Goodall

Perhaps you’ll have to deal with a horse. Maybe you’ll have to deal with a bird. Sometimes, you’ll deal with both on the same day! Either way, you have to be prepared for anything
Animals are living beings, and as such will react randomly and won’t easily follow instructions. You’ll have to be patient in ensuring that they follow the plan outlined for them.
You’ll need to be able to look ahead and plan out different changes in ecosystem for different animals. More often than not, you’ll look 5 sometimes 10 years ahead when you decide what the best step to take is when trying to conserve a certain species.
