for examinees

The supply of livestock resources, including milk and meat, which are essential for our diet, is a challenge facing not only Japan, but also the entire world. Join the Graduate School of Global Food Resources and you could meet that challenge by gaining an in-depth understanding of food resources from the viewpoint of livestock production.
