Courses in the Laboratory of Animal Production Science teach students the most advanced fundamental and applied knowledge and skills in animal production science. This training enables them to explore the field of animal husbandry from a broad perspective taking into consideration animal welfare and ecological conservation, as well as conventional livestock production. After completing the courses, they can apply their understanding of animal physiology and behavior for genetic improvement and enhanced productivity of livestock.
This course aims to cultivate individuals capable of addressing various issues in animal science and life science by introducing students to broad and systematic knowledge and skills regarding the biological functions, breeding, reproduction, nutrition, and management of livestock and other animals.
