The Swedish Livestock Research Centre - Lövsta lantbruksforskning
The research centre is an important resource for research and education on dairy cattle, pigs and poultry in housing solutions that are suitable for both research and education. On an average ten projects are running daily and the students at the faculty of veterinary medicine and animal science, VH, will be taught here at some point during their education.
Nearby is a field station which runs about 70 agricultural trials and farms approximately 70 hectares around Uppsala.
Since January 1st, 2023, Röbäcksdalens dairy research facility in Umeå, is part of the faculty of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science, and of the Swedish Livestock Research Centre.
Quality Assurance in Research
The Swedish Livestock Research Centre has the prerequisites to perform quality-assured research into animal welfare, behaviour and health, animal environment and care and building function, sustainable and climate-smart food production.
Facilities represent technology at the forefront of development
The facilities for the animals represent technology at the forefront of development with around 30 employees with long and documented experience of animal care, trials and production. The production, consumption, behaviour, reproduction and health of the animals are recorded continuously. This gives you a resource, which shows you the possibilities and safguards your trials.
The animals are central in the research, education and basic food production
The animals are central in the research and education, but are also part of the facility´s basic food production. The goal for the Swedish Research Centre at SLU, is to be at the forefront of animal production and agriculture and to offer the researchers of SLU, international researchers and researchers from private enterprise an excellent environment for research and education in a modern farming facility.
The Swedish Livestock Research Centre and the Röbäcksdalens Dairy Research facility fulfills the requirements of the ISO 14001:2015 standard; in addition, the Swedish Livestock Research Centre also fulfills the requirements of the ISO 9001:2015 standard.
