Transcript

  • 1. Animal Science Framework Presentation Mr. Sullivan
  • 2. The five Major Types of Livestock in the United States:
    • Poultry: chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese, game birds, and squab (pigeons)
    • Swine: pigs
    • Bovine: cattle
    • Ovine: sheep
    • Equine: horses
    • (Goats)
  • 3. The Major Geographical Regions of Production
    • Chicken production is divided into two sections: Broiler and Egg
    • Broiler production is led by Georgia, Alabama, and Us (Arkansas)
  • 4. Geographical Regions of Production (continued)
    • Turkeys are scattered out from the Pacific region, across the western part of the North Central Region, and in the South Atlantic Region
  • 5. Geographical Regions of Production (continued)
    • Swine: pork production is predominant in the states of Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, and Nebraska
  • 6. Geographical Regions of Production (continued)
    • Bovine: the most production comes from the southern and western states
  • 7. Geographical Regions of Production (continued)
    • Ovine: the leading states in production are Texas, California, Wyoming, Colorado, South Dakota, Montana, New Mexico, Utah, and Oregon
  • 8. Geographical Regions of Production (continued)
    • Equine: horses are everywhere; however, there are not as many now as before 1929.
  • 9. The Importance of Livestock to the United States Economy
    • The average person in the United States consumes 48 pounds of beef, 29 pounds of pork, and 24 pounds of poultry each year.
    • We consume more meat than any other nation.
  • 10. Products Obtained from Livestock
    • Food/ Drink
    • Clothing
    • Tools/ Equipment
