Animal Science : The design and implementation of animal genetic improvement and selection programs. This course looks at aspects of data recording and how breed improvement can be carried out. Different species and livestock sectors will be examined: dairy cattle, beef cattle, swine, sheep and goats, and to a lesser degree poultry. Differences among systems will be highlighted, as a function of the structure of the particular species-industry and how genetic improvement has evolved, both within Canada and elsewhere.
