Section for Animal Production, Nutrition and Health

This section is host to the four areas of livestock production science, currently covered by professorships: cattle, cattle health, livestock production, and pigs and porcine diseases. The core areas include teaching and research into production and health of livestock, and a main purpose of this professional group is to increase the co-operation between the veterinary and the animal science disciplines.

The work is especially focused on livestock in herds. By basing the teaching as well as the research on existing herds, we can ensure that what we do is aimed towards the conditions in the real world of livestock production businesses. The course of our academic work is strengthened by this direct link to reality.
