In our graduate programs, you can study and research in several disciplines related to animal science. These include nutrition (monogastric and ruminant), physiology (digestive, environmental, reproductive), animal welfare (health, production, behaviour), meat science, food safety and basic sciences (immunology, microbiology, molecular biology). Our main species of interest include cattle (beef and dairy), poultry (chickens, laying hens, turkeys), swine and wildlife (bison).
Some faculty members also have an interest in human disease processes. Our department has a strong emphasis on sustainable agricultural systems and the use of mathematical models to describe these systems.
