WI-FI addresses these challenges by focusing on sow nutrition to
develop winter feeding strategies. The project provides new scientific
1) Energy and protein requirements of outdoor sows fed two levels of dietary protein
2) Intake and utilisations of two roughage types and how these interact with sow body condition, reproduction and litter performance.
The purpose of FORFRA is to develop a new feeding concept for piglets that ensures weaning with optimal growth without development of diarrhea and without use of zinc oxide at medical levels and antibiotics.
Post-weaning diarrhea (PWD) in piglets is an extensive problem, causing weight loss and piglet death, resulting in financial loss for farmers and reduced welfare for the animals. The scope of this project is to perform research and development of Ablacto+ to take it from concept to a defined product.
The PPILOW project aims to co-construct through a multi-actor approach solutions to improve the welfare of poultry and pigs reared in organic and low-input outdoor farming systems.
The purpose of PorganiX is to establish the first, Danish organic core livestock for breeding purposes and create knowledge, so the organic farmer kan select the best gilts for organic breeding goals.
The aim is to study whether increasing dietary fibres is a way to restore body fat more efficiently after weaning without concomitantly increasing the muscle mass of the sows too much.
SOTRANS gains knowledge to formulate operational guidelines for pick-up and transport of cull sows – ensuring that challenges to animal welfare and carcass quality are minimized.
The principal aim of the VetBioNet infrastructure project is to establish and maintain a comprehensive network of pre-eminent high-containment (BSL3) research facilities, academic institutes, international organisations and industry partners that is dedicated to advance research on epizootic and zoonotic diseases and to promote technological developments.
This project involves in vitro techniques simulating the digestive processes in the gastrointestinal tract of pigs in order to understand the actions of various arabinoxylan-degrading enzymes under conditions resembling that of the gastro-intestinal tract.
The overall aims of the EFFORT project are to establish basic knowledge on nutrient
requirements of organic produced pigs, transfer the knowledge into new feed
formulations and feeding strategies and implement these strategies at practical
