The theme group develop feed evaluation, explore and increase the use of biomass resources including biomasses subjected to biorefining processes, and to improve nutrient efficiency by processing. Aim is to develop an animal production system that fit into a sustainable circular bioeconomy system. Focus is on feed for both monogastric and ruminant production- and pet animals.
Feed evaluation, and development of methods for laboratory and in vivo feed evaluation of both conventional and new/alternative feedstuffs
Sustainable animal production, both organic and conventional, is depended on efficient use of feeds, without competing with the requirement for land for direct production of human food.
This require development of alternative feed resources and optimization of use of existing feed resources, e.g. processing and biorefining to partition nutrients from a biomass to the most efficient use.
