ANIMAL HUSBANDRY LABORATORY

This laboratory is used for instructional purposes for undergraduate and graduate students. The laboratory is equipped with the necessary instruments and devices for reproduction biology (sperm collection, sponge application, insemination, microscope), carcass traits (slaughter and carcass equipments), management practices (numbering, dehorning, hoof care and castration) and milk quality (milk analyzer).


FEEDS AND ANIMAL NUTRITION & FEED MICROBIOLOGY LABORATORIES

Animal nutrition/feed analysis laboratories perform chemical, physical and microbiological analyses. At the same time, this laboratory provides testing services by performing several analysis on submitted samples and serves a reference source which specific laboratories can use to implement protocols appropriate to their specific situations. These laboratories are also used for instructional purposes for undergraduate and graduate students. We conduct scientific researches that are aiming to solve international, national and regional livestock feeding problems.


GENETIC VARIATION LABORATORY

Several genetic mutation related to diseases and productive traits can be diagnosed by using molecular genetic methods. Genetic diversity between livestock breeds estimated by using these methods.


POULTRY BREEDING AND BEEKEEPING LABORATORY

Major activities of this laboratory are:

  • Determination of the internal and external quality characteristics of eggs,
  • Determination of the properties of the embryo,
