Pain relief after disbudding increases animal welfare

There are welfare benefits for calves in connection with disbudding if the animals are given local anesthetic as well as pain relief in the form of NSAID instead of anesthetic on its own.

Professor Hanne C. Bertram has contributed significantly to the development of the metabolomics technique, which researchers can use to study food metabolism in the body. She was awarded the EliteForsk Prize in 2017 from the Danish Ministry of Higher Education and Science. Meet her in the annual report. Photo: Ditte Valente/Eliteforsk 2017

Why do some broilers have gait problems and how does it affect them?

Researchers from Aarhus University are among the first to focus on causes and effects of impaired walking ability, that is not decidedly lameness, in conventional broilers.
