Feed manufacturing and government regulations.

Comparative Nutrition (PO 415) is a required course for Poultry Science.  It is also an elective option for Ag Science, Ag Extension Education, and Ag Business Management.  The Pre-requisite for PO 415 is currently ANS 225 or ANS 230; or CH 220 or CH 221.  The instructor of record has observed students taking a nutrition class (ANS 230 specifically) prior to PO 415 are better prepared for PO 415.  The CH 220 or CH 221 pre-requisite is not adequately preparing the students for PO 415.
