Is seaweed a potential feed for ruminants?

Nutritionally, some seaweed species have a huge potential as feed for ruminants. However, according to a study of Norwegian harvested seaweed, in which AU researches have participated, using seaweed as feed is also connected to many challenges. It is, for example, a matter of the seaweed’s content of water, ash and potentially heavy metals as well…

A new project is to lead the way to describing the climate-friendly dairy cow

Aarhus University leads a new research project which is to pave the way for a more climate-efficient dairy production. The aim of the project is to reduce the cow’s methane emission via feeding and to investigate the biological reasons for why cows differ in methane production. Furthermore, researchers will examine how we can implement the new…

Green protein is good for pigs

Experiments carried out at Aarhus University in Foulum demonstrate that green protein extracted from clover grass is a very useful diet for pigs. This applies to both pig welfare, growth, feed utilization as well as meat quality and taste.

How to achieve the best effect of local anaesthesia when castrating piglets?

As from 1 January 2018, Danish farmers were given the opportunity to anaesthetize their piglets prior to surgical castration. The use of local anaesthesia prior to castration may seem an advantage to the piglets, but administration of the aesthetic drug is not painless, it does not cover the entire painful period post-castration, and only few…

New handbook: Good manure management practices

A new handbook for farmers and advisor organisations on good manure management practices is now available. The handbook is based on results and previous experiences in the EU project 'Manure Standards'. The handbook serves as an easy-to-read material also for other stakeholders from policy to agricultural education.
