Production Animal Science

      What will I study?

      Overview

      In the Production Animal Science major, you will study subjects designed to develop your understanding of biochemistry and microbiology in an agricultural context. You will apply this knowledge in a range of third-year topics including animal disease, production and growth, behaviour and welfare, including this major’s capstone subject, Production Animal Physiology.

      You can choose to spend Semester 2 of your second year at Dookie campus, where you can observe a wide variety of farming industries first-hand including cropping, livestock and dairy management, horticulture and viticulture enterprises, as well as support industries such as irrigation management, logistics and food processing operations.
