Animal Sciences and Industry Undergraduate Research Symposium

 

The Undergraduate Research program at Kansas State University allows students to take part in course based experiential learning projects or a traditional one on one research project conducted with a faculty member. The outcome for both experiences are to give students the opportunity to gain critical thinking skills for use in their future career or education.

Each semester students that participate in undergraduate research will present their findings at the Undergraduate Research Forum. Students who wish are then able to travel to Midwest American Society of Animal Science Meeting and Plains Nutrition Conference to either present or attend other sessions from researchers in the animal science field.

Thank you to Dr. Mark and Kim Young for sponsoring this years course based projects. We appreciate their continued support of student success.

    Newborn piglets are more susceptible to iron deficiency due to inadequate iron stores at birth and rapid growth rate before weaning. This causes fewer circulating red blood cells, lethargy, and mortality (Mateos, 2012). ...
