This subject involves an in-depth study at post graduate level of the principles of animal nutrition, in particular that of ruminant and monogastric animals. General topics (modules) covered include nutrients in animal feeds, and nutrient digestion, absorption and metabolism, the theory of which students will apply in their practical and assessment tasks. Students will then further develop their knowledge of ruminant nutrition. Students can advance their knowledge of the nutrition of individual species through their assignment choice.
