Reed as feed to horses and ruminants

This project investigates whether reed silage can be used as roughage for horses. Reed is harvested in different plant maturations and analyzed with regard to energy value and nutrient content.

Open call of two co-funded collaborative post doc projects

The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science at SLU hereby opens a call for co-funding of two post doc projects. The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science at SLU hereby opens a

Crickets as sustainable food!

This project aims to develop a new, tasty, protein- and mineral-rich Swedish food based on the house cricket (Acheta domesticus). The project involves development of a feed production system

Artificial spider silk with a toughness equal to dragline silks can now be spun

Using spiders to produce spider silk on an industrial scale is impossible, but it is possible to use bacteria for production of shorter versions of spider silk proteins that can be isolated and spun

Disputation: Novel insight of thymidylate kinase biochemistry

Dissertation: Novel Insight into Thymidylate Kinase: Biochemical Characterization of the Human and Zebrafish Enzymes Patrik.claesson@slu.se Junmei Hu Frisk defends his thesis: Novel Insight into

AI in veterinary clinical diagnostics

Great progress is being made today in human medical diagnostics with the help of artificial intelligence (AI). In human medicine AI is for example used to interpret ultrasound and X-rays. In

Facial expressions in stressed horses

Being able to identify pain in sick and injured horses is important in order to provide proper treatment. One possible method of identifying pain in a horse is to examine the horse's facial

Test of new biomarker to differentiate intestinal disease from cancer in cats

Tumor diseases of the gastrointestinal tract are difficult to diagnose and often lead to great suffering for our pets. The incidence of cancer gastrointestinal lymphoma (GI lymphoma) in cats has

Best anaesthesia protocol for fish

There are over 30000 species of fish, living in a wide range of habitats. To treat ‘fish’ as one group is probably even less meaningful than to attempt to produce general guidelines for ‘mammals’. In

Introduction to automatic forage stations and measurement of forage intake rate in an active open barn for horses

Interest in the use of open barns on Swedish horse farms is increasing as an alternative to keeping horses in box stalls and as a 2007 law requires phasing out of tie stalls. To provide adequate

Non-banked curved tracks influence movement symmetry in two-year-old Standardbred trotters

Little is known regarding how trotting through curves affects locomotion symmetry in Standardbred trotters. The aim of the current study was to investigate differences in objectively measured

Reliable and clinically applicable gait classification in walking and trotting horses

Objectively assessing horse movement symmetry as an adjunctive to the routine lameness evaluation is on the rise with several commercially available systems on the market. Prerequisites for
