Scientists at Aarhus University are studying grass-clover pastures at 10 farmers in order to ensure that these pastures can maintain a high yield over many years and thus extend their lifetime.
The number of cows on grass is set to rise if a new research project involving scientists from Aarhus University succeeds in finding a practical solution for combining automatic milking systems with grazing.
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.
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.
An automatic hoof washer developed in a close partnership between a private production company and scientists at Aarhus University has been patented and put into production. Next step is to start an export adventure.
Whether you are a farmer or a veterinarian makes a difference when it comes to assessing the level of pain suffered by cows and how it should be managed. This is the result of a new study at Aarhus University.
There is a clear linear relationship between how long you stay in the sun and how much vitamin D3 your body produces - at least if you are a cow.
The feeding of giraffes in zoos is more often than not based on trial and error and experience rather than on scientific evidence of what is healthiest for the giraffes.
