The new postgraduate program in Animal Breeding Management (ABMgt), launched in February 2007, aims to provide world-class education in animal breeding, genetics and management to distance students. This will enable graduates to become influential members of their industry. Graduates will assist in enhancing the level of expertise in animal breeding available across animal industries and promote its use in a wide range of applications.

The rapid growth of technological and scientific innovation in genetics, genomics, biotechnology and reproduction has resulted in a need for further training for scientists to support industries that rely on effective animal breeding. These include beef, dairy, poultry and pork industries and also emerging areas such as crocodiles.
