Our research and teaching in ruminant nutrition and management includes nutrient metabolism, feeding, lactation, growth, behavior and housing issues. We focus on animal production and welfare and on quality of the products. The impact ruminant production has on the global environment has become an important part of our research. We have a large international network, within EU as well as worldwide.
