I learned a lot about animal welfare and will use this information as I develop my career in the zoological field. This also taught me a lot about farm animal life and how pets at home often don't have as great a life we think they do and what we can do to better their lives in the house.

Me gustó mucho la temática abordada en cada semana. Quizá me encantaría que completamente todos los videos estén subtitulados al español, así como también que haya videos complementarios que fortalezcan aún la teoría mirada en clase.
De verdad es muy genial el curso, aprendí muchísimo.

Great course! Corso che apre la mente su problematiche a tutti molto vicine, anche se pensiamo che non ci riguardino. Qui viene descritto molto bene e imparzialmente come avviene l'allevamento, facendo riflettere su quello che si considera solo cibo, in realtà è molto di più, è vita.

My major is not about agriculture, but I love this field very much. That is the reason why I spent my time with this course on Coursera. This on-demand course is very convenient for anyone who want to know more about animal agriculture. I strongly like and recommend this course.

This was an informative course. It has provided me with information that has changed the way that I view animals. It has allowed me to realise that I have been guilty of some of these things such as anthropomorphising animals. I am encouraging others to take this course.
This is a reall great course! I learned so many things that I didn't really think about before. I truly think this is a great opportunity for people who may be insterested in studying animal-related fields to have an idea of what they might be dealing with in the field.
