The Department of Dairy and Animal Science is offering a free, noncredit course in Reproductive Biology of Animals for those who have an interest in the subject but are not currently enrolled in a college or university program.
The objective of this course is to provide a basic background in comparative reproductive biology of animals, especially farm animals, to individuals who are not pursuing a college degree in the animal sciences.
A basic understanding of animal physiology is useful for completing the course successfully. Subjects to be covered in the course include the following:
- anatomy of the reproductive system of farm animals
- endocrinology of reproduction
- the estrous cycle
- sperm production
- resumption of estrous cyclicity after delivery
