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.
