Livestock play an increasing role in helping to provide income and food security worldwide.  It is expected that the demand for animal source foods in some regions of the world will increase by over 100%.  The department of Animal Science at Iowa State University is devoted to expanding basic education and research to not only Iowa but to people around the globe.  Activities that contribute to international programs include the International Animal Science course (AnS 441), travel abroad courses, collaborative research and outreach activities on 5 continents and the Ensminger International Program.
