ANIM 209

The course familiarizes students with important aspects of equine and food animal care. Areas of study include: basic husbandry, breed identification, terminology, physical examination, vaccination, parasite recognition and control, reproduction, neonatal care and common diseases. While the primary focus is on equine and traditional food animals, such as bovine, swine, poultry and small ruminants, brief consideration is given to the husbandry and care of non-traditional livestock, such as camelids (llamas), cervids (deer), and ratites (emu).
