What will I study?

Throughout the program you will gain practical experience with livestock facilities on campus and take part in field trips to commercial animal enterprises. You will use the latest technologies in disease control, welfare management and food quality. You will study business principles and gain practical skills in applying these through industry placements to ensure the profitable and sustainable management of commercial, ethically compliant animal based industries.
