The government's new relocation agreement means that the Faculty of Technical Sciences will establish a new, integrated education and research campus in Foulum near Viborg with up to 800-900 students. The vision is that Aarhus University's new campus in the future will be the centre for study programmes within green transition, veterinary medicine and primary food production in the western part of the country.
Aarhus University, Department of Animal Science, is one of the participants in a new big H2020 project linking extensive husbandry production to the production of quality meat from pigs and poultry.
Two new organic projects at AU Foulum focus on sustainable slaughter pig production with 100% locally produced feed as well as meat quality and shelf life.
An EU project, including participants from Aarhus University, is going to develop a new decision tool that can help pig producers reduce the prevalence of tail bites on their farm.
Aarhus University leads a new GUDP project (KlimaKS) which will contribute with new tools to help the farmer in his efforts to prevent health problems in dairy cows. This will be beneficial to the cows’ welfare, the farmer’s economy and not least the climate.
Aarhus University is one of the partners in an EU project, R4D (Resilience for Dairy), aiming at contributing to the social, economic and environmental development of European milk production.
Cattle can in some situations learn to eat weeds directly in the field using a relatively simple method of adaptation.
Previous initiatives to reduce the number of dead piglets in Danish pig pens have not been successful – on the contrary, piglet mortality is increasing. New research efforts aim to improve the genetic opportunities to help the piglets survive.
Protein production from insects will be optimized with help from researchers at Aarhus University, Department of Animal Science and corporation partners. This will be achieved through the GUDP funded project EntoFeed, where the nutritional requirements of black soldier fly larvae will be investigated in order to maximize larvae production while reducing environmental impact.
Around 500 interested visited the cattle research facilities at Department of Animal Science, Aarhus University in Foulum, during the last couple of days on the occasion of the official opening and an open house event.
