The aims are to understand physiological mechanisms and improve and document nutritional interventions and feeding strategies for monogastric animals as pigs, poultry, and insects in order to reduce their impact on environment, climate and biodiversity and contribute to achieve sustainable animal production.
Nutrition, production and reproduction at different physiological stages and transition phases (e.g. weaning period of piglets; perinatal period of sows).
Nutrition is highly important for sustainable production as feed cost is the major expense for animal production. The continued development towards high-productive animals and concomitantly economic and environmentally sustainable animal production is getting even more complex when considering society and consumers expectation with respect to low impact on climate and environment.
Research and development in utilization of feed and specific nutrients will be fundamental for securing a future animal production.
