Livestock Management


Livestock provides our diet with highly nutritious but relative expensive ingredients: milk and beef from cattle, pork from pigs, and broilers and eggs from poultry. It also represents a highly specialized farm sector, involving animal management, trade in farm inputs (such as machines, breeding stock or concentrates), and also trade in farm outputs (e.g. dairy products, meat, or young stock).

Such specialization requires well-trained experts. A Major in Livestock Management provides aspiring specialists with the preparation they need for a rewarding career in the international livestock business.
