TN Visa as an Animal Scientist

In general, an Animal Scientist conducts research in domestic farm animals’ genetics, reproduction, nutrition, and development for the purpose of formulating efficient methods to produce and process meat, eggs, poultry, and milk. For this reason, Animal Scientists consult with agricultural producers on how to provide safe and healthy housing for animals, improve disease and parasite control, reduce mortality rate, improve waste disposal, and increase animal product production.
