Prior knowledge

General entry requirements for higher education


The aim of the course is to provide an understanding of the practical handling of farm animals. Through practical skills training and reflection, the course provides insight into the animal keeper’s working conditions and how management routines affect the animals’ production and well-being as well as the economy of the production.

After completing the course, the student should be able to:
- describe the practical handling of one of the farm animals,
- describe the working conditions within animal husbandry,
- explain the connection between management routines and animal production, well-being, economy and sustainability.


During about 80 percent of the time, students participate in the daily routines in animal husbandry. To support during this period, the students are assigned a supervisor who instructs in the handling of the various elements. Students are also assigned an academic supervisor as a resource for questions and discussion. After the period of training practical skills, the students summarize their experiences and present these both in writing and orally.

In the course, the student practices animal handling and the following general skills: written and oral presentation.
