Master in Sanitary and Animal Production

  

The Master in Sanitary and Animal Production  aims at training professionals with a profile for the development of scientific research, technological innovations with practical applications that guarantee, in a sustainable way, the production and sanity in small and midsize. This professional will be stimulated and trained to develop and enhance their skills and competence to contribute to the economic development of macro and micro regions with this socioeconomic-productive profile. In this way, at the end of the course, the egress will be qualified to contribute fully to animal health and production issues in intensive farming systems developed in small properties, adding scientific and technological, practical and applied knowledge. Such competences may be fully applied in professional teaching and / or research practice, in higher education or research institutions, as well as acting professionally in the daily field practice as a qualified professional, autonomously or linked to companies operating in the areas related to program.

  • Train professionals with critical vision, capable of integrating and interacting with aspects of animal health and production inserted in the context of small properties;
  • Train researchers with an innovative vision that use integrative practices for scientific research in animal production and health;
  • Develop scientific knowledge in an interdisciplinary way, contributing to regional development;
  • Develop and consolidate the concepts of animal welfare in the context of animal health and production.
  • Train teachers to work in technical and higher education institutions;
  • Contribute to the internalization process of the stricto sensu postgraduate course in the state of Santa Catarina and in Brazil.

In order to fulfill this objective, the Master in Sanitary and Animal Production has a faculty composed of 14 Professors who work in an integrated and interdisciplinary way, with intense bibliographical and technical production, with training in the area of agrarian and related sciences. This group promotes a constant search for scientific updating, seeking to contribute continuously to the advancement of science, technology and regional development. The strategy to achieve these goals is to maintain demand for the generation of new knowledge, the training of human resources with profile for problem solving through established traditional methods and through innovation.

Description: The area of concentration of the Master in Sanitary and Animal Production aims to train human resources to perform high-level research focused on animal health and production systems suitable for small technicality properties. In order to do so, we will seek to understand, research and clarify the various aspects related to epidemiology, etiology, diagnosis, control and prevention of the main diseases that affect production animals in production systems related to intensive systems developed in small properties. Likewise, within the regional integration characteristics of the program, the area of concentration will also seek, in Animal Production, the understanding, research and clarification of the various aspects related to the biotechniques of reproduction, well-being, nutrition and animal metabolism, technological processes in products of animal origin, improvement of zootechnical indexes based on the application of precision genetics, in addition to collaborating with aspects of management and sustainability. This set of competences aims to be applied to very specific regional scenarios (small rural properties), proposing solutions to the asymmetries that may be found, as well as contributing to the quality of the already existing production systems.

The lines of research seek to enhance the specialties and "areas" existing between the curricular components of the different professional qualifications in the field of agricultural sciences. With this, it is possible to complement these areas, aiming at the proposal of synergistic solutions, based on the transversal view of the problem, contemplating regional sanitary, productive and socioeconomic aspects, always supported by bioethics.

1) Animal Health

Description: Considering the regional and socioeconomic characteristics that are mostly of small farms with intensive production, this line of research covers in general: The study of the major diseases in ruminants, pigs and poultry, in relation to its impacts, means of control and prevention, applied in the regional context of insertion of the program, that is, rural modules composed of small technified properties and work based on family labor. To do so, the methodologies applied will be based on the identification and characterization of the main pathogens through immunological, microbiological, parasitological, molecular and pathological diagnosis techniques. In addition, indirectly, the line of research aims to assist in the control and prevention of emerging and reemerging diseases that may directly or indirectly affect breeding systems in production animals.

2) Animal Production

Description: The objectives and proposals of the line of research in animal production were delineated on the basis of regional production systems, mostly developed in small technicality farms and mostly familiar hand labor. Thus, two general objectives stand out:

1. Reproductive and animal genetic studies are increasingly becoming important as a result of new challenges to which animals are subjected to meet animal production pressures. In this sense, genetic selection of animals for production, better feed efficiency, more intensive breeding systems, among other factors, created a need for improvement of techniques and procedures, as well as generation of new knowledge in all these areas;

2. Promote the development of biotechnological products and processes related to animal husbandry and nutrition in production animals, as well as products derived from a well-managed set of management and health activities. It also seeks to improve zootechnical indexes associated with animal welfare and the sustainability of livestock activities, especially for regional characteristics of size of properties, allowing the maintenance of farmers in the field.
