Supplementary to the Midwestern Section American Society of Animal Science 1991 teaching symposium titled "Animal Science and Education - Are We Losing Our Identity?" a survey was conducted of the 20 registered Block and Bridle Clubs in the Midwestern Section. Results of the survey indicated that students do not perceive Departments of Animal Science to be losing their identity but students do believe that future curriculum will place greater emphasis on biological science courses. Overwhelmingly 66.1 % of the students agreed that more computer skills should be integrated into Animal Science curricula and 79.1% of the students agreed that more hands-on experience should be included in animal production courses. From a student perspective, this survey suggested Animal Science departments should continue to offer courses in production and management while increasing science, business, and computer skills.
