Transcript Title: ANIMAL NUTRITION 
UC QTR Units - Division: 6.0 - Upper Division 
Course Description: This course is broadly divided into four sections: estimating the nutritive characteristics of feeds; defining the nutrient requirements of animals; diet formulation; and errors in feeding. It focuses on the assessment of nutritional adequacy and the avoidance and solving of nutritional problems, with a particular emphasis on animals used in agricultural production systems and wildlife. Students study the composition of feeds, the digestibility and efficiency of utilization of nutrients by the animal, the nutrient requirements of the animal, and interactions between nutrients that influence health and production. Students formulate diets to meet animal requirements under a variety of constraints; identify deficiencies, excesses, and imbalances in diets; and learn to avoid a decline in productive efficiency and/or a decline in health.
