Master of Agricultural Science: Animal Production

Course content

THE FUTURE OF FARMING: CLEAN, GREEN AND ETHICAL

Animal production scientists enable farmers to meet the demand for animal food sources in a sustainable way by applying scientific, economic and social knowledge. The Master of Agricultural Science, with a specialisation in Animal Production, will equip you for a career in animal production based on 'clean, green and ethical' principles.

Course description, features and facilities

Australian agriculture is a key part of the world's food supply system. The challenges of a rapidly growing population, climate change, and the limitations of land and fresh water all impact on the ability of agriculture to meet the demand for food, fibre and fuel. To address this demand an understanding of the complex factors that shape agricultural systems is necessary.

UWA is well equipped for teaching and research in agricultural science, with a field station at Shenton Park and the University's Future Farm near Pingelly, which aims to be self-supporting, sustainable, carbon-neutral, clean, green and ethical – a best practice farm.
