Our course provide education based on animal reproduction, animal breeding and genetics, livestock feeding management, nutrition and functional anatomy, and we conduct research focused on development of animal reproductive biotechnology, developmental biotechnology, production of genetically modified livestock, evaluation of animal genetic resources, relationship between economic traits and genetic polymorphism, active use of reginal unused resources on the livestock industry, livestock grazing, aigamo duck farming, wild animals damage preventation and protection, development of new livestock feed resources, elucidation of nutritional metabolism mechanisms, meat production physiology and histological characteristics of skeletal muscle, with the aim of building a new animal science. By educating through these researches, we aim to cultivate human resources with a broad perspective and international outlook who can play a leading role.
In Southern Kyushu, one of Japan’s leading livestock production areas, we provide education on animal reproduction and breeding, behavior/feeding management, biomechanics, nutritional physiology, use of livestock products, etc., and ensure safety and security from efficient and sustainable production of livestock. We aim to develop human resources who can contribute to the advancement of animal science, the promotion of regional agriculture, and the strengthening of the competitiveness of domestic livestock products, while equipping them with knowledge and skills related to the development of livestock products with high added value.
