Principles and current practices of commercial egg production. The Commercial Egg Industry as it is currently evolving and operating in the US. We will examine the development of the industry as it has progressed through integration, consolidation, and expansion. We will also look at the outside influences on the industry such as federal government, European Economic Community (EEC) perspective, animal welfare and consumer desire for naturally raised poultry and poultry products.

The additional contact will allow a laboratory component to be extended and will allow site visits to commercial egg production facilities.  Students will also cover animal well being, Best Management Practices, and alternative production systems such as aviary facilities.

renutt (Fri, 28 Aug 2015 18:10:37 GMT): Rollback: c. Requested edits: i. Since this course could apply to Ag Ed and Ag Sci curricula, add to list of affected curricula ii. Upload updated syllabus that matches information put in CIM, including all pre-reqs, correct grade determinations, and updated learning outcome (change “develop” to something measurable)
lwdavis (Thu, 14 Jul 2016 12:39:53 GMT): Which Curricula are Affected? Should have the following listed in addition to 11PLTRYBS-11PLTRYTPS: 11AGEDBS-11AGEDPSC 11AGESBS I failed to add these during the editing.
