Services & Outreach


As the University of Arkansas is a land-grant institution, part of our department mission is to provide information and services regarding animal science to the general public. In addition to the work and services our faculty provide through the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture Cooperative Extension Service, we also host a number of public, education events each year. The dates below are tentative.

Resources - Arkansas Animal and Forage Information

Animal agricultural has an enormous impact on Arkansas' economy. Animal science faculty work with our partners in the Cooperative Extension Service to provide resources to producers in beef, dairy, goats, swine, sheep and other animal enterprises.

Event - Animal Science Day/Halloween Party

The Animal Science Day annual event gives the department a chance to educate and celebrate animal science with students, children, alumni and members of the community in a fun and memorable atmosphere. The event features a livestock "cutie corral" for people to interact with and learn about farm animals, the Pre-Vet Club Pie-A-Professor fundraiser, costume contests for both kids and dogs, a haunted house presented by the Animal Science Graduate Student Association, trick-or-treating and education stations hosted by animal science clubs, games, concessions and more.
