Mr. Aung Htun, a second- year student of UGAS, Iwate University, was awarded at The 17th Asian-Australasian Association of Animal Production Societies Animal Science Congress!

2016/10

Mr. Aung Htun, a second-year student of the United Graduate School of Agricultural Sciences, Iwate University, was awarded for Young Scientists Award at the 17th Asian-Australasian Association of Animal Production Societies Animal Science Congress held in Fukuoka from 22 August to 25 August in 2016. This study demonstrated that the absorption of immunoglobulin G (IgG) by newborn calves fed colostrum replacer was improved by supplementation of Difructose Anhydride III, an indigestible oligosaccharide. Moreover, it was demonstrated that efficiency of IgG absorption of newborn calves significantly differed between the colostrum replacers. It is expected that the results of this study contribute to decrease the mortality and morbidity of newborn calves.

The research theme is “Replacers on Immunoglobulin G absorption and Serum Immunoglobulin G in Newborn Calves”. Authors: Aung Htun, Yasuhiro Suzuki, Yuki Koike, Tadashi Sato and Masaaki Hanada

The University of Saskatchewan (U of S) and Iwate University signed an agreement of cooperation between universities

2013/03

The University of Saskatchewan (U of S) and Iwate University signed an agreement of cooperation between universities, as Prof Iwabuchi, vice president of Iwate University, and Prof Uemura, dean of the United Graduate School of Agricultural Sciences, Iwate University (UGAS) visited University of Saskatchewan in Canada at the end of March 2013.
The University of Saskatchewan was established in Saskatoon city in the province of Saskatchewan in 1907. The University of Saskatchewan is one of the largest universities in Canada with fourteen departments and two million students in one huge campus. The agreement between universities has been developed from a former agreement signed in 2008 between the college of agriculture and bioresources, University of Saskatchewan and The United Graduate School of Agricultural Sciences, Iwate University. Under the former agreement, faculty members of UGAS, Iwate University have visited U of S several times and had academic seminars and pursued collaborative research together with faculty members of U of S. In addition, UGAS, Iwate University has sent some students every year for couple of months for a research internship at U of S. On the basis of these achievements, UGAS are moving toward the launch of a dual degree program with U of S. During the most recent visit, UGAS together with the faculty of Agriculture and Graduate School of Agriculture, Iwate University signed a memorandum of agreement between the College of Agriculture and Bioresources, College of Arts and Sciences, and Western College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Saskatchewan.
Under the agreement between universities, collaborative activities are expected to increase in a range of university activities and leading to improved globalization of education and research activities of faculty members and students in both universities.
