University of the Free State UFS Department of Animal, Wildlife, and Grassland Sciences

UFS Department of Animal Wildlife and Grassland Sciences – Check below:

The University of the Free State (UFS) Department of Animal, Wildlife, and Grassland Sciences focuses on four disciplines, namely:

  • Animal Breeding
  • Animal Nutrition
  • Animal Physiology
  • Grassland Science

The production systems of a variety of livestock species (cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, poultry), ranging from intensive to extensive, are placed under scrutiny. The total spectrum from communal, small-scale to commercial and stud units, is covered.

The fourth discipline, Grassland Science, involves the study of all aspects regarding the utilisation, conservation, and improvement of rangeland and cultivated pastures – in harmony with animal production.

Grassland Science is also committed to the conservation of the environment, and in this respect the Wildlife discipline contributes to the efficient utilisation of the grazing ecosystem. The aim of training and research is eventually the optimal production of animal protein and fibre, whilst maintaining natural resources. The interaction between the various disciplines creates endless opportunities in the fields of Animal, Wildlife and Grassland Sciences.
