Research projects - ruminant management

Our research on management of ruminants primarily covers dairy cows. Research projects often include animal welfare, animal health, the efficiency of production systems and possibilities to adjust grazing, housing and technology to the biology of the animals. Our department has a long tradition in studying effects of milking technology on milk yield and udder health. Other important research areas are calving interval, dry-off management, dry period length, body condition and sensor technology for improved precision in dairy production.
