Soy beans often contain glyphosate residues. A new project will examine potential effects when farm animals are exposed to glyphosate residues via the feed. Photo: Colourbox.  
In the project, the effect of glyphosate on the microorganisms of the gastrointestinal tract and on mineral status will be examined in pigs and poultry as well as potential secondary effects on animal health and productivity. Photo: Colourbox.
