Ph.d- defense: Piglet mortalilty in Danish organic pig production

Lena Rangstrup-Christensen will defend her Ph.d. 3 November 2017. The study is the first large scale study investigating risk factors for piglet mortality and causes of death within a commercial organic production setting and new knowledge has been generated with a potential to lower piglet mortality in the future.

Antimicrobial-free organic production seems within reach

Production without the use of antimicrobials can be within reach for many organic farms with a targeted health-promoting effort. A recent report from Aarhus University examines the possibilities of establishing organic production concepts for dairy and pig farming without using antimicrobials. The report also mentions the importance of rethinking…
