The Global Ruminant Production course focuses on how to increase the efficiency of both intensive and extensive ruminant production systems. It draws upon research within IBERS to cover topics such as the basics of performance measuring and the latest research on ruminant genetics. Using this research, participants will be enabled to reduce the environmental impact of global ruminant production.
You will explore the fundamental genetics and physiology that underpin animal production in terms of: reproductive technology; genetic improvement; dairy cattle production systems; meat production systems; meat and milk quality; disease prevention and management.
The module is delivered by Aberystwyth University, entirely online through distance learning.
