Administrative history

The Department of Animal Husbandry was established in the Faculty of Agriculture in 1917 and continued until superseded by the Department of Animal Science in the early 1950s. The function of the department was "to afford education and training in all matters pertaining to live stock to all those living in the province and seeking and applying for such education."
