The Science of Animal Agriculture, third edition is designed for courses aimed at teaching science along with concepts associated with the industry of animal agriculture. This book responds to the current trends in education that promote connecting academic theory with real world applications. Research shows that students gain a better grasp of scientific theory if the theories are taught in an application context, and this text presents the application of biological science used in producing and caring for animals. Topics such as nutrition, anatomy, genetics, entomology, pathology, and animal behavior are covered in depth. These complicated areas are presented in the context of how they are used in the animal industry, allowing the student to make a distinct correlation. Students will benefit from this science-based, animal agriculture text that makes complicated biology principles easy to grasp the context of their application.

His first non-fiction book, The Age of Absurdity (Simon & Schuster 2010), was a bestseller and has been translated into seven languages.Ray V. Herren has been actively involved in agriculture for most of his life. He grew up on a diversified farm, where he played a major role in the production of livestock. He obtained a bachelor of science degree in agricultural education from Auburn University, a master's degree in agribusiness education from Alabama A & M, and a doctorate in vocational education (with an emphasis in agricultural education) from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.
