Agricultural Science Video


A new blog, Agricultural Science Digital Resources, has been set up by the Frog Blog team to help teachers of agricultural science incorporate video content, from YouTube, into their lessons. The blog contains numerous videos on topics ranging from lambing in sheep to milking machines to liver fluke to farm machinery. It should prove a very useful tool for all agricultural science teachers. The latest post features the video below, an excellent half hour look at the role biotechnology plays in agriculture and medicine. It's is one of the best videos I've ever come across on YouTube and is an essential in terms of teaching genetics in Ag. Science. The video looks at selective breeding, AI, genetic engineering and cloning. Learn about both biomedical and agricultural applications of animal biotechnology and some of the science-based and ethical concerns that are engendered by certain applications.
