The University of New England is the only Australian public university to be awarded the maximum 5 stars for Overall Experience by the Good Universities Guide, 13 years in a row. UNE has delivered distance education since 1955—that’s longer than any other Australian university. Perhaps that’s why students continue to rate UNE so highly for student satisfaction and teaching quality. With over 170 degrees offered online, and more than 20,000 online students, UNE is the expert in online education.

Upon completion of this subject, students will be able to:
- demonstrate a technical and theoretical knowledge of the subject by recognising the characteristics of the various products of the livestock industries (including meat, milk, fibre, eggs and draught power) particularly as they relate to consumer demand for the product;
- identify the range of production systems that have developed to support animal production in various environments, and the physical and biological constraints to such systems thereby demonstrating the ability to analyse information, work autonomously and use judgement;
- demonstrate a technical and theoretical knowledge of the nature, structure and size of the major Australian livestock industries, and their relation to world markets; and
- analyse information, interpret and transmit solutions to complex problems by identifying alternative animal industries and the opportunities that they present and the constraints that they face.
