Animal Sciences 495 (3 credits)
Open to all undergraduate students and
This program focuses on food
security and environmental challenges in international
agriculture. Global animal protein intake rates are
anticipated to increase between now and 2050 because as
household income increases, the amount of animal protein
intake increases as well. At this time, there are continuing
global challenges to livestock and poultry producers,
including access to international markets, global
competitiveness, and the impact of world politics.
Program will be offered in Spring 2018. Undergraduate participants will meet
weekly through the semester and will travel to Vietnam
during Spring Break (March 9 – 18, 2018).
