We will update this list after the semester starts, and each lab section has TA’s assigned to it. Importance of Course: Proper feeding practices are a major determinant of animal performance. Feed costs are the greatest expense in animal production, and feeding practices are critical in determining the profitability of modern animal production systems. Profitable feeding practices require knowledge of the fundamental concepts of animal nutrition and metabolism. Understanding the basic concepts of nutrition and feeding will help you become an effective leader in animal agricultural industry. ANS 313 is the introductory ANS nutrition course and is a prerequisite for the advanced ANS nutrition courses. Objectives: Course is designed to teach principles of animal nutrition and the integration of principles with practice. Specifically, you will learn: 1. Identification and composition of feedstuffs and their appropriate use in animal diets. 2. Digestion and metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, vitamins, minerals, and water. 3. Formulation of diets and feeding management for different livestock classes. 4. Regulation of feed intake and nutrient partitioning. 5. Effects of diet on performance and concepts of nutrient requirements and nutritional quality. 6. Economical approaches to animal feeding. 7. Effects and identification of improper nutrition, deficiencies and toxicities. 8. Use of computers in diet formulation and evaluation. 9. Effects of nutrition on stewardship of resources. 10. Use of animal products in human nutrition. Textbook: Pond WG, Church DC, Pond KR, and Schonknecht PA. 2005. Basic Animal Nutrition and Feeding, 5th ed. John Wiley & Sons, Inc., Hoboken, NJ.
