Ruminant Animals nutrition

With the preparation of rations connects excellent theoretical knowledge with practical application. Students are trained in drafting a balanced rations and integrated nutrition programs.


The purpose of the course "Ruminant Animal Nutrition" is the knowledge of theoretical and practical view on behalf of the students of modern methods of various species (cattle-sheep and goats) and categories (dairy, broiler growth, fattening, reproduction) of ruminant animals that provide health, high productivity, well-being and longevity in animals, safe and quality products with minimal environmental impact.
