Professor
Hiroki Nakatsuji
We consider land use type milk and meat production system as a material circulation over soil-grass-livestock. We aim to elucidate factors affecting livestock and land productivity, and to build a production system, including land use system.
Professor
Eiji No
Demonstration of circulation farming in the land-based dairy farm, especially considering from forage production. Research on forage production and its preparation (silage).
Professor
Shigeru Morita
1) Animal welfare assessment for good farm practice and production
2) Factors influencing resting behavior and eating behavior in free-stall barn
3) Analysis of the social connections of adjacent eating and resting cows
Professor
Hiroshi Yamada
As a study of human and animal relationship, we investigate the effects of animal therapy and hippotherapy, relationship between pets and humans, measurement of stress response, personality and temperament, exhibition of zoo animals, and behavioral survey.
Professor
Naoko Yamashiki
Research on elucidation of biological features and improvement of technologies that are involved in stable development and breeding of livestock European honeybee in the cold region. Our research subjects also include organisms interacting European honeybee.
Professor
Tsuyoshi Yoshida
For wild animal protection management, we conduct basic and applied survey studies. In particular, we develop practical research for the protection management of large mammals and countermeasures of foreign organisms in the field of Japan and abroad.
