Large Animal Health and Production 2 - VETS4233

Year - 2018

Large Animal Health and Production 2 is aimed at developing deep learning approaches to solving problems of ruminant (mainly bovine, but also ovine and caprine) production, and equine medicine and reproduction. In addition to lectures, tutorials and practical classes, it uses a case-based approach to deliver group case studies on-line for student presentations, known as TILHAP's (teaching innovations in livestock health and production). These cases require integration of pathological and epidemiological investigative skills to provide evidence based solutions in the management of disease and productivity problems in a 'whole farm' setting. The course is designed to advance student learning in preparation for the intramural and extramural clinical placements encountered in final year. The practical classes will continue to build the confidence of students in handling large animals in rural mixed and public practice settings.
