Current research projects

Completed research projects

On an average 10 research projects are running daily at the facility.

At the Swedish Livestock Reserach Center at Lövsta, seven km south-east of Uppsala, SLU:s researchers, international researchers and researchers from private enterprise will be offered a unique research environment, where new animal production technologies can be researched and tested. A facility where research of the highest quality within animal welfare and animal health, climate-smart animal management and sustainable food production will be conducted.

The students at the faculty of veterinary medicine and animal science, VH, will be taught here at some point of their education. The animals are central in the research and education, but are also part of the facility´s basic food production.
