Basics of animal nutrition and feeding. Identification and classification of common feedstuffs, including relative nutritional value for livestock and poultry. General nutrition and changes in requirements as influenced by production and the animal's life cycle. Applied aspects of feeding and nutrition of livestock and poultry. Agricultural Institute Students Only (Class= 01 or 02).

The major revision to this course involves adding a laboratory, based on student evaluations. Incorporating a lab component will enhance the learning environment and improve retention of course material. This course is required for the Livestock and Poultry Management major, where students thrive on application-based, student-centered learning. By adding the lab, students will be able to learn, practice and apply techniques related to animal nutrition commonly used within the industry to promote student career success upon graduation. Other minor revisions include updating the course description to better reflect the course content and adding assignments associated with the new lab.

Animal Feeds and Nutrition teaches the basic concepts of animal nutrition. The concepts include the classification of feedstuffs, nutrients, and animals based on nutritional physiology, and applied general nutrition requirement changes throughout the animal’s production cycle.


Student Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:



  1. Compile and apply terms that are important in the area of animal nutrition and feeding;

  2. Describe the relationship between diets consumed by animals and the digestive processes throughout the gastrointestinal tract of non-ruminants, ruminants, and hindgut fermenters;

  3. Explain how the management of nutrients (in both feeds and animal waste) is important to a successful farm;

  4. Compare common feeding practices for each species of livestock and for poultry, including limitations of some ingredients and feeding practices that can lead to problems;

  5. Summarize feed classification, harvesting of feeds or ingredients, and processing of dietary ingredients as they relate to animal production; and

  6. Evaluate a feed tag and/or nutrient analysis of a feed to describe how this assessment relates to animal nutrition and feeding.


Evaluation MethodWeighting/Points for EachDetails
Attendance43 points total, 1 point per classEach course meeting is worth 1 point towards attendance/participation. An excused absence will be credited with 50% of attendance points for the missed session. Excused absences must be approved in writing prior to missing class, but not all prior notifications of missed class qualify for excused absence status. Participation requires active engagement in course discussions, asking/answering questions, beyond attendance.
Quizzes80 points total, 8 quizzes worth 10 points eachThere will be 8 pop-quizzes worth 10 points each administered to monitor student progress periodically throughout the semester. No make- up quizzes will be available unless the absence was previously excused.
Written Assignment260 points total, 13 assignments worth 20 points each13 various assignments worth 20 points each will be distributed throughout the semester. Assignments will primarily be administered in laboratory but may require some take-home activities. Late assignments are not tolerable and will receive a 10% deduction for each day it is late (that the University is open).
Multiple exams500 points total, 4 exams each worth 125 points4 exams worth 125 points each will be administered on dates indicated in the syllabus. All exams will be comprehensive. The 4th exam is the final exam. Format of exams will vary but may include essay, multiple choice, matching, short answer, fill-in, and true/false. No make-up exams for a grade will be given without prior notification and approval of Dr. Pickworth. In the event of an emergency, contact Dr. Pickworth as soon as possible (preferably before the start of the examination).
