Welcome to the Department of Animal, Dairy & Veterinary Sciences
The Department of Animal, Dairy & Veterinary Sciences (ADVS) was formed in 1977 when three individual departments were combined. The ADVS Department is large, complex, and highly diversified. We have responsibility for teaching, research, and extension in all species of farm animals. We also have service responsibilities for the Laboratory Animal Research Center and the Utah Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory (including the branch laboratory in Nephi), veterinary care of all University animals, and have the leadership role in the Interdepartmental Toxicology Program. Further, ADVS is home of the regionally recognized Caine Dairy Teaching and Research Center and the Institute for Antiviral Research.
