A research school at SLU

Welcome to the research school
Domestic Animals in a Changing World

The research school Domestic Animals in a Changing World (DACW) focuses on the changing conditions for a sustainable economic, environmental and ethical usage of farm animals. 



The increasing human population, globalised market, changing climate and increasing interest for ethics are some of the items that require feeding strategies and management adapted to the new conditions. Issues related to the increased demand for care and management of animals for sports and company and their environmental costs are also considered.

If you have any questions or have something that you want to post on this website, please contact any one of us coordinators. //Helena Wall, Katarina Arvidsson Segerkvist and Nils Lundeheim
