The Department of Animal Sciences is one of the oldest with the mandate to provide highly trained manpower, equipped with both conceptual knowledge and practical skills geared towards promoting animal health and production within the agricultural sector.

To achieve this, we offer diploma and degree programmes, and tailor-made short courses aimed at improving efficiency in animal production, management and nutrition.

Background:

Mankind has for many years depended on animals, not only for food but also for a variety of by-products and services. Livestock provide all the milk and meat consumed worldwide. In Kenya, like in other developing countries, the livestock sub-sector contributes approximately 10% of the GDP. Although livestock production systems aim at increasing meat and milk to feed the increasing population, they are confronted by a number of constraints, notably diseases and inadequate management.
