ANSC 4110 - Integrated Cattle Nutrition


     
Fall. 4 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: BIOAP 1100  and ANSC 2120  (or equivalent). Highly recommended prerequisite: ANSC 3550 . Designed for: juniors, seniors, and entering graduate students.

M. Van Amburgh.

Integrates concepts of cattle nutrition and farm nutritional management to help students understand and appreciate factors influencing the performance of cattle under diverse conditions. Topics include the effect of environment on maintenance costs; the nutrient requirements for various stages of growth, lactation, and pregnancy; rumen function; feed composition and chemistry; nutrient partitioning; and the environmental impacts of cattle and how to minimize them. Computer models (Cornell Net Carbohydrate and Protein System) are used in the laboratory to actualize the information presented in lectures. Herd case studies are used in lab and there are field trips to farms to evaluate the nutritional management.
