Unit Description

This unit covers ruminant and monogastric animals and is designed for both 'generalist' and 'animal science' oriented students. The major constraints to increased animal production posed by environment (nutrition, climate, health and welfare) are considered in an integrated way, ie emphasis is placed on the interactions between factors such as nutrition, climate and disease and includes contemporary social imperatives such as waste management. A purpose-written book is provided. The unit provides sufficient basic scientific information about the major factors that limit animal production to enable students to make recommendations on animal production problems in widely different practical situations.

Learning Outcomes (LO) Upon completion of this unit, students will be able to:
  1. demonstrate knowledge of the environmental constraints to livestock production and understanding of the interactions between these constraints;
  2. apply knowledge and skills to demonstrate an understanding of scientific principles underpinning practise in the field of animal production;
  3. review, analyse, evaluate and consolidate knowledge to make recommendations on complex animal production problems in widely different practical situations; and
  4. exercise strategic thinking and judgement in planning and presenting a clear, coherent and independent exposition of knowledge and ideas.
