General Information





The Department of Animal Science Production is made up of five units, Animal Clinic, Diagnostic Lab, Field Lab, Nutritional Lab and Student Enterprise Project

Student Enterprise Project

The Department of Animal Science and Production has participated in training qualified students for entrepreneurial skills in livestock production since 2001, following the approval of the policy and guidelines for executing the Student Enterprise Project (SEP) in 1999. The SEP policy and guidelines are detailed on this page. We encourage all prospective participants to familiarize themselves with these guidelines before applying to participate.

Written application with a short motivation statement and project proposals should be sent to the Head of Department as soon as notices to apply appear on this page and the college notice boards. A committee will be set up to select the best proposals. Applicants who qualify will be assigned members of academic staff in the department and from the department of Agricultural Economics, Education and Extension to assist them finalizing their project proposals.


Broiler production has been the most popular project for our students. Some students did ostrich production in the past, but this has since been abandoned due to lack of viability due to poor product prices.

SEP proposals for livestock production can cover any enterprise in theagricultural sector. This year one (1) student has been admitted for feed-lotting of small stock. The approval of a proposal shall depend on the viability of the project.
