Husbandry (hint: not the practice of getting husbands)
For the next couple of weeks, focus for lectures has shifted to husbandry and behavior and the like. Why? We've all got placements coming up during the spring holiday and we need to know our stuff. At placements, we have to take notes on how the farms run things, what they could improve, etc, etc, ad nauseum. Today was Animal Housing, Ruminant Care, and Animal Behavior. Now, I've taken Animal Nutrition, Equine Care and Handling, and 2 semesters worth of Animal Behavior. So needless to say, some of this is a review.
Cue me playing Angry Birds for 3 lectures in a row. Whoops.
Good news, though: I've gotten my 3 placements for the spring holiday approved! 6 weeks down, 6 weeks to go.
