On January 1 2023, Louise Bundgaard started her new position as assistant professor at the Department of Animal and Veterinary Sciences (ANIVET) at Aarhus University. Louise will help create and establish the best possible framework for the new veterinary science degree programme at AU Viborg.
PhD student Milani Bhagya Samarasinghe from Department of Animal and Veterinary Sciences will defend her thesis in the auditorium 6 January 2023 in the auditorium at 10.00.
We've heard it before, cows are agriculture's big climate sinners, but what if you could reduce methane emissions by making them graze on fields with tannin-rich plants? A researcher from the Department of Agroecology at Aarhus University has been awarded a prestigious Sapere Aude grant to investigate just that.
The No Methane project led by professor Mette Olaf Nielsen from the Department of Animal- and Veterinary Sciences at Aarhus University and the product X, are shortlisted for “Visionary and Pioneering Concepts” at EuroTier - being held in Hannover, Germany, 15.-18. November 2022.
By keeping your dairy herd healthy and preventing disease, it will reduce CO2 emissions and increase revenue. According to professor Søren Østergaard, research project manager, many farmers underestimate the consequences of disease in their herd, thereby losing the value of preventing ailments such as mastitis and hoof disorders.
A group of the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration’s collaborators in Vietnam has visited AU Viborg – Research Centre Foulum.
The Department of Animal and Veterinary Sciences must contribute to the establishment of important networking between Denmark and Korea/Asia in relation to supporting the One Health agenda and fighting antibiotic resistance at global level by balancing and optimising the health of both animals and humans.
Following the decision that AU Viborg - Research Centre Foulum will be hosting the three new study programmes - Veterinary Medicine, Animal Science and Agrobiology - the Department of Animal Science at Aarhus University has been busy. The reason for this is that it plays a key role in the establishment of the new study programmes. The department has now also changed its name to the Department of Animal and Veterinary Sciences (ANIVET) and implemented a reorganisation.
Researchers from Aarhus University suggest to develop protocols for assessing animal welfare in natural national parks with a focus on nutrition, environment, health and behaviour. The suggested approach is transparent and systematic and allow for documentation of the welfare of the animals over time. Implementation of the approach across countries can be a platform for international knowledge sharing between projects.
In northern sub-Saharan Africa the future for dairy products from cattle is bleak. With climate change the temperature will rise and grass will wither. Without grass no cows, and without cows no milk, unless farmers shift from cattle herds to mixed herds of cattle, goats and camels. According to new research mixed herding will result in higher milk production, less inputs of water and feed as well as lower greenhouse gas emissions.
