PhD defence: The dynamics of rumen bacterial and archaeal communities in dairy cows

Zhigang Zhu studied how the rumen bacterial and archaeal communities shift over the transition and lactation period of dairy cows. The new research findings contribute to the understanding of dynamics of rumen microbial community and its role in animal health and production. The PhD defence takes place Thursday 1 December 2016.

Concentrating milk at the farm does not harm milk quality

Together with Arla Foods, Aarhus University has examined several aspects of concentrating the milk at the farm. In terms of quality there is nothing wrong with moving the process to the individual farm.

Extended lactation does not impair the quality or cheese-making property of milk

There are no problems with the milk quality from cows managed for extended lactation. On the contrary, studies indicate that this production strategy will produce milk that is more suitable for cheese production.

Broad collaboration project to improve milk quality

A too high level of free fatty acids in milk may cause a rancid taste. Scientists are therefore trying to find new ways to limit free fatty acids as well as new methods to measure the levels of these within the framework of the major innovation consortium FUTUREMILQ.

Improved breeding value assessment for reproductive performance in dairy cows

The routine breeding value assessment for reproductive performance in Denmark and Sweden may be improved by means of activity-based fertility traits. This is demonstrated by results from a recently finished PhD project. In addition, it has been demonstrated that the genetic variation in reproductive performance changes in relation to calving…
