4-Year Colleges


Choosing a college can be a difficult decision for young people. Searching for and finding the right school can be quite a challenge. We've taken some of the searching out of the equation by compiling this list of schools.This list provides some information about dairy and/or animal science 4-year programs at colleges throughout the U.S. Data came from surveys that we sent to more than 60 colleges every three years. While most colleges were more than willing to provide information for their school, others chose not to respond and missed the chance to reach our readers and prospective students.
Here's a list of those colleges with animal or dairy science programs that replied to our 2016 survey. We encourage you to contact those that interest you. You can also click on the link for a more comprehensive overview of each institution.
