Pet Food Production - From Concept to Consumer

The scientific principles and physical process of producing pet food, from concept through manufacture to reaching the consumer, while building on animal physiology and nutrition foundations. This course provides in person lectures, field trip experience, and peer evaluations to provide exposure to multiple career paths, including veterinary medicine, animal and nutrition industries, and research. Prereq: 3140 or EEOB 2520; and 3130 or HumnNtr 2210; and 3133, FdScTe 2400, or 3400; and AEDEcon 2001 or Econ 2001. Cross-listed in FdScTe.

Animal Laboratory Research Methods

Laboratory format demonstrating the applications of animal research. Students will perform experiments using common research techniques associated with food animals, including experimental designs, commonly used laboratory techniques including reagent preparation, protein and nucleic acid purification and downstream analysis, including immunochemical assay development and optimization. Prereq: 2200.01 or 2300H, and 2200.02 or AnmlTec 2200.02T. Prereq or concur: 3140 or MeatSci 3110. Not open to students with credit for 3200.

Animal Welfare Laboratory

Laboratory experience exploring aspects of animal welfare, including biological functioning, affective state, and natural living. Course activities provide core concepts primarily in the area of applied animal welfare and behavior, with focus on food animal species.

Not open to students with credit for 3200.

Animal Physiology Laboratory

Laboratory experience exploring organs, tissues, and cells associated with the physiological systems of domestic animals. Course activities put into practice core concepts in the areas of anatomy, histology, and physiology. Prereq: 2200.01 or 2300H, and 2200.02 or AnmlTec 2200.02T. Prereq or concur: 3140 or AnmlTec 3140T or EEOB 2520. Not open to students with credit for 3200.

Southern African Animals

This course examines animals native to Southern Africa. Students will examine animal anatomy and physiology, interpret behavior, and analyze the positive and negative human-animal interactions taking place in the geographic region, as well as the effects these interactions have on both humans and animals.

Gut Microbiology

A study of the major microorganisms of the gastrointestinal tract of animals and humans, their microbial metabolism and functions, interactions with each other and with hosts, and impact on host nutrition and health. Prereq: Micrbio 4000.01 or 4000.02 or 4100, and Biochem 4511, and GPA 2.0 or above in Biochem and Micrbio coursework; or permission of instructor.
