This subject involves an in-depth study of applied ruminant nutrition. Students will learn rumen stoichiometry and practical nutritional management for profitable and sustainable ruminant production. They will also learn how to develop appropriate strategies for the management and prevention of nutritional deficiencies and metabolic disease in ruminants. The focus of learning will be application of critical thinking and an evidence-based approach to ruminant nutrition by analysing and reporting experimental data, and by considering case studies.
