Ruminant nutrition

Our research on ruminant nutrition primarily focuses on effects of feeding on metabolism, production and the environment but also includes effects of animal management on these factors. We study how grazing, and feeding strategies based on forage and by-products and different feed structures, affect animal welfare in conventional and organic herds. Furthermore we investigate how feeding influences the gastro-intestinal microbiota both in young and adult animals. In our research both the local and the global perspectives are important.
