Courses taught in Animal Science or Agronomy at the college and university level have traditionally been discipline and/or species oriented within a department (Schweitzer, 1986). Courses using a team-taught, (Haque and Bradshaw, 1986) integrated approach across discipline, department, and colleges are not common, yet learning styles based on personality type (Barrett et al., 1985: D'Albro, 1983) are very important in the teaching-learning process with students usually reacting favorably to team-taught course offering a variety of learning opportunities. In addition, problem solving (Howell et al., 1982) using case studies is a strategy for integrating several disciplines. This course was developed using a team-taught, problem solving, integrated approach for cow-calf production on rangeland.
