The effects of different types of fibre-rich feed on welfare in broiler breeder pullets

Reduced energy content in the standard feed combined with a daily allocation of roughage may be the way to go to prevent problems of hunger and unsatisfied behavioural needs in conventional broiler parents. This is what the results of a comprehensive study show. The study was conducted by Department of Animal Science, Aarhus University, at the…

What happens to hydrogen and carbon when the production of methane from cattle is reduced?

Methane consists of carbon and hydrogen, and the production of methane in the rumen of cattle can be reduced significantly by for example adding fat or by adding a new feed additive, Bovaer®, to the ration. Researchers at AU Foulum are now investigating where that carbon and hydrogen end up, and whether the lower production of methane means that…
