Research Facilities

The Department of Animal Science conducts its practicals for students, as well as postgraduate research, at the University's Hatfield main campus, at the Miertjie le Roux research farm and at the worldclass Innovation Africa.

Student practicals vary considerably throughout our undergraduate degree and include, but are definitely not limited to:

  • Rectal palpations on live cows for reproduction science
  • Ruminant and monogastric dissections for animal anatomy and physiology
  • Dairy parlour milking and cleaning for large stock science
  • Hoof trimming and 'wool school' for small stock science
