|Subject Overview:||Foundations of Animal Health 2 expands on the understandings developed in Foundations of Animal Health 1, to consider the principles of animal health management at the flock or herd level, and the manner in which the health of a population of animals impacts on productivity. A case study approach will introduce students to established management practices of the major animal production industries of Australia, and will reinforce understandings of the role of welfare, genetics, nutrition, housing and infectious disease control in the maintenance of health populations of animals.|
|Objectives:||Students successfully completing this course should develop a broad appreciation of the importance of sound management practices in the maintenance of healthy populations of animals, and the role of veterinary and animal scientists in ensuring the health of populations of animals.|
A 2-hour end-of-semester examination (80%), four intra-semester computer-based quizzes each of approximately 30 minutes’ duration and undertaken during class time (20%).
