Animal Growth and Development

Addresses the advanced principles of animal growth and development as the food animal industries continue to emphasize more efficient growth rates and acceptable meat quality. Specific information will be focused on the structure and function of muscle, bone, and adipose tissues, and the interaction among nutrition, hormones, exercise, heredity and disease. Prereq: 3100, 3105, or permission of instructor.

Advanced Topics in Ruminant Nutrition

Advanced aspects of ruminant digestion, microbial fermentation, absorption, metabolism, physiology and the integration of these processes into rationing approaches will be emphasized, building on principles of ruminant nutrition from past courses. Prereq: 5031 (630.01) or equiv, or Biochem 4511 (511), or permission of instructor. Not open to students with credit for 730.
