We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Livestock train postgraduates in the most efficient means of rearing animals for agricultural and commercial purposes. This includes exploring breeding, genetics, immunology and food safety, animal nutrition, and the relationship between livestock and wildlife.
Specialisms in this field include Livestock Management and Livestock Health. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant field such as biological, environmental, or veterinary science.
Postgraduate study of Livestock and Livestock Science offers more than just an analysis of supply and demand. Expect to gain wide-ranging knowledge of the agri-food industry, including its commercial viability and environmental implications, as well as government policy on food safety and modification.
You can opt to focus your studies on particular kinds of livestock care and management, such as poultry or bovine farming. You may even choose to explore how farming methods and landscaping can effect livestock production.
Possible careers include farm and factory management, consultancy in environmental and governing bodies, or even marketing, advertising and communications.
Alternatively, you may wish to use your Masters degree as a basis for further PhD research in fields such as veterinary science or industrial analysis.
