Agriculture is obligated to reduce its impact on the environment. In an experiment at AU Foulum, scientists have in a small trial repeated international experiments with the supplementation of nitrate to cattle feed and reduced methane emissions by up to 20 per cent. Photo: Jesper Rais

Adding nitrate to dairy cow ration reduces methane emissions

In a new project at AU Foulum the target is a 20 per cent reduction in methane emissions in cow burps. This could seriously reduce the agricultural impact on the climate.

Genetic tools aid reproduction in cows

Danish and Brazilian scientists have joined forces to improve the practical use of reproductive technologies in beef and dairy cows. The Brazilian partners have extensive practical experience and large amounts of data, while the Danes provide the research expertise in genetics and reproductive technologies.

Forty-five heads of cattle of which 30 are Limousine times Holstein crossbreds (photo) and 15 are pure Holsteins form the basis of a research project investigating the potential for an increased production of organic beef meat from young animals. Photo: Mogens Vestergaard, AU

An increased production and supply of organic beef products may soon be a reality

Crossing of organic dairy and beef cattle is the subject of a new research project at Aarhus University to reveal whether there is a potential for theproduction of organic beef meat based on young crossbred cattle for organic farmers, who wish to specialise in beef production.

A unique monitoring system for cows that, for example, measures how much time each cow spends at the feeding table, is being developed jointly by Aarhus University and Lyngsoe Systems. Photo: Jesper Rais, AU Communication

Science and commerce collaborate on a unique monitoring system for cows

Scientists at Aarhus University are collaborating with Lyngsoe Systems on the development of a new monitoring system for cows to improve animal health and welfare and farm economy, and to reduce environmental impact.

New source of greenhouse gas from cows discovered

Scientists from Aarhus University have discovered that a hitherto overlooked group of microorganisms in the rumen of cows plays a significant part in emission of the potent greenhouse gas methane from cattle. This can be of particular importance in the effort to reduce the effect of cattle on climate change.

Feed supplements to reduce disease and increase feed efficiency in dairy cows

Scientists at Aarhus University are working on developing feed supplements for dairy cows that reduce the incidence of feed-related diseases and result in better feed utilisation. This will result in savings for the industry.
