Rules and guidelines for the 2-w-long Animal Nutrition summer practice (to be carried out till the 17 July, 2015) for the former German Students who want to continue their studies from the 5th semester in the English program of the Faculty


The aim of the summer practice is to directly experience the practice of animal nutrition and technology of large-scale farm animals, and to highlight the cooperation and bond between the nutrition and veterinary work.


General rules

  1. Summer farm practical (in Animal Nutrition) is compulsory. Former farm work experience does not substitute the present practice, as your knowledge gained during lectures and practicals gives the grounds for your critical approach, which is necessary for the proper acquisition of the summer practical. 
  2. The summer practical takes 2 weeks (preferably the first two weeks of July).
  3. The review of 2 different animal species is required. The farm shall be a large-scale facility, preferably dealing with dairy cows, swine, sheep, goat or fish. Horse and beef cattle breeding facilities are also accepted. Small family farms, zoos or minor breeding businesses are not accepted.
  4. The Training agreement (Annex 1.) shall be signed by the end of the semester (no later than the 15th of June) by the farm manager and the student, and it shall be sent as an attachment (scanned / photo copy of the signed agreement) to the following e-mail address:



The body of the e-mail shall contain your name only while the subject is “training agreement”.

  1. It is possible to do the farm practice at two separate farms, 2 weeks altogether, one after the other. In this case two separate Training agreements shall be signed and mailed.
  2. The practice shall be made in between the end of the summer exam period and the end of August.
  3. It is your responsibility to manage the arrangements for the proper place for the summer practice.
  4.                 a) A summary report,         

b) a diary describing the daily activities day by day and

c) a signed note from the farm manager validating the participation

shall be prepared, printed out, bound ALL together and handed in as a HARD COPY to the Secretariat of the Department of Nutrition (1078 Budapest, Rottenbiller u. 50) by the beginning of the semester.

The report should also be emailed to naplo.atli@aotk.szie.hu ( .doc, .docx or .pdf format) by the beginning of the semester to get controlled in the plagiarism database.

Submission of the report is a PREREQUISITE for the exam of the discipline  (animal nutrition II.) for the semester. Moreover, submission of the report is also a prerequisite for enrolling for Animal Nutrition, as those, who submit late will lose the chance for registering.

  1. Your critical approach and well-based opinion is highly desired and valuated!
  2.  We are interested in your own work and statements, therefore, identical reports or diaries, even from the same farm will not be accepted.
  3. The content of the report should reflect all the relevant considerations written below.
  4. The structure of the report must follow the guidelines below.


Instructions for preparation of the report and diary

Objectives, requirements

The aim of the 2 weeks is the understanding of the every day practice of animal nutrition, as well as its rules, considerations, habits, strategies, trends and the proper role of the veterinarian surgeon in it.

During the time of the practical you need to be employed in the routine daily work of the farm, and work according to the directions of the supervisor or owner (farmer).

An up to date diary must be kept about all the activities day by day (hand written or electronic). This should be signed by the supervisor or by the owner of the farm at the end of the practical and shall be included as Chapter 4. of your report.

You have to summarise your experiences and observations collected during the practical in a report (18 - 25 written pages, preferably illustrated by photos, figures and tables).

The Institute will evaluate the report, and a mark (scores from 2-5) will be included in the scores of final examination, if the summer practical and the report were accepted.

Your critical approach and well based opinion is very important, such as the quality of the presentation of your work.
