AFTP Course - Ruminant Nutrition

Organised by AFTP

The Ruminant Nutrition course will outline the fundamental physiological and microbiological principles underpinning ruminant nutrition.

You will look at the design of animal nutrition experiments; ruminant ration formulation and evaluation; nutrient digestion and metabolism; microbial populations and their ecology; and metabolism of carbohydrates, protein and lipids in order to modify the characteristics of meat and milk. The module will also look at research into reducing environmental impacts from ruminants through their nutrition.
