This program is interdepartmental, including the Departments of Animal and Dairy Science, and Poultry Science. It embraces both the basic and applied phases of nutrition including the metabolism, biochemistry, and physiology of minerals, lipids, carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, etc., in monogastric and ruminant animals. Strong collateral support, through course offerings and research cooperation, also is available in the areas of biochemistry, physiology, genetics, statistics, veterinary medicine, and microbiology. Facilities for research include adequately equipped nutritional, biochemical, and physiological laboratories, experimental animal quarters for many farm and laboratory species and instrumentation for many types of metabolic studies including, for example, the use of isotopes. The goal is to provide a challenging program, supplying opportunity for students to develop their creative ability to the point where their knowledge and motivation will enable them to make major contributions and assume leadership in the nutrition profession.
