The Department of Farm Animal Health is one of the three clinical departments at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, along with the Department of Equine Health and the Department of Clinical Health of Companion Animals.
Like the Department of Equine Health and the Department of Clinical Health of Companion Animals, the Department of Farm Animal Health focuses on the three core tasks of education, research and patient care. However, unlike the other two departments, patient care at the Department of Farm Animal Health facilitates education and research.
In their research and education, they pay attention to the individual animal, but to an increasing degree also to larger groups of farm animals. The veterinary care provided by the department also focuses on this issue.
