Course Overview

Several very significant factors are affecting animal production today. There is a consistent increasing demand for animal products as populations increase and their standard of living improves. These population increases are imposing proportionally greater demands on the resources of the semiarid and arid-lands, where livestock are the main means of utilizing the resources; it is also becoming apparent that the interaction between livestock and crop plays a key role in improving crop productivity. For these reasons, there is an increasing demand for professionally competent staff, in government services, Research and teaching institutions. Due to this the University of Nairobi has developed these Master of Science programme and others to help deal with the crisis.
