This subject contains a 5 days Compulsory Workplace Learning component.
The work placement can be taken at any time throughout the subject at the student's discretion, but upon subject coordinator approval. The work placement should allow the capture of information required for the critical evaluation of a livestock enterprise on a farm and development of improvements which may facilitate improved management of feed utilisation, reproduction, genetic selection, meeting market specifications and health and welfare. Visits on farm will enable students to experientially examine different components of management that they will use to complete their assessments. If the workplace component is taken as a number of visits, it is possible that these will enable the student to observe and discuss more fully, the changes in feed supply and numerous components of a livestock management calendar.
