The course examines and critically evaluates the production systems used for extensive and intensive animal production to produce milk, meat and fibre. Extensive grazing, intensive grazing, dairy, feedlot and housed systems will be covered. Through lectures, tutorials and site visits, students will examine and evaluate these production systems from their production, sustainability, food safety and quality and animal welfare perspectives.
This course contains a highly recommended residential school for both external and on-campus students (non-attendance will mean the student misses both an element for assessment preparation and an element of assessment).
