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 in the form of NSAID instead of anesthetic on its own.

Can agricultural soil in Greenland be improved?

Researchers from the universities in Aarhus, Aalborg and Copenhagen are investigating if glacial flour can be used to optimise agricultural land in South Greenland.

Improved protection of European wheat against rust diseases is underway

A new European research project will develop a new early warning system to protect wheat against new races of rust.

Sowing depth, which can be controlled more precisely with the aid of new technology, is important for the seed's ability to germinate and the plant's possibilities for growth. The desired placement is the one on the left. Illustration: Agrointelli

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.

Researchers in the North Sea Region aim for greener greenhouse production

Researchers from Aarhus University are leading a project that puts the spotlight on reducing energy consumption in greenhouse production of fruit, vegetables and ornamental plants in the North Sea Region without compromising quality.

New research results show, that the risk of tail damage was lowered to the same level as with tail docking, if straw provision and lowered stocking density were combined. Photo: Mona Lilian V. Larsen

Prevention of tail biting demands extra effort

New research suggests that farmers need to use multiple preventive measures to prevent tail biting in slaughter pigs, especially if they raise pigs with intact tails. Besides risk reduction, it may also be necessary to include early warning strategies to hinder tail damage.
