A new vaccine against piglet diarrhoea is on its way

Aarhus University takes part in a new and ground-breaking project in the development of an effective vaccine against weaning diarrhoea in piglets. If the development work of the vaccine goes like the researchers are hoping for, 90% of the mortality seen today due to weaning diarrhoea will be prevented, and the use of antibiotics will be lowered…

A new method for pointing out resource-efficient and climate-friendly cows in practice is on its way

AU researchers participate in a new groundbreaking project, managed by VikingGenetics, which is to give the dairy farmer access to data about each cow’s feed intake by means of 3D cameras. The project will create unique opportunities to act with efficient and targeted management initiatives in practice for the benefit of the farmer’s economy and…

AU researchers study the feeding value of pulp for cattle

Pulp is a fibre-rich by-product, emerging from the protein refining of grass-clover. As the pulp forms a considerable part of this process, the utilisation of this, by for instance dairy farmers, is extremely important. Therefore, researchers from AU are currently studying the feeding value of the pulp for cattle, and the preliminary results look…

A new environmentally friendly source of protein for pigs is being tested at AU Foulum

At present, researchers at Aarhus University are testing a new environmentally friendly source of protein, Uniprotein, in a feeding experiment with pigs. Uniprotein is a source of protein made of bacteria able to grow on methane as substrate. A future use of this type of protein will, among others, be able to reduce the carbon footprint for the…
