Brazilian by-products transformed into food

When we eat a cashew nut, we might not be aware of the fact that the ‘nut’ it is just a small part of the cashew fruit. When we buy coconut water, we may not think about what happened to the rest of the coconut. Many crops, especially fruits, go partly to waste. In cooperation with Brazilian researchers, researchers from Aarhus University will…

Wild plants climate-secure the crops of the future

Researchers from Aarhus University and their colleagues from the University of Copenhagen, will make new crops out of wild plants. Climate change and an increasing population make it imperative to find alternatives to the crops that today feeds the earth. The Novo Nordisk Foundation has allocated DKK 60 million to the research project, which will…

The amount of roughage has a major influence on cows’ methane production

A feeding trial at AU Foulum has shown that cows’ enteric methane emission decreases markedly when the amount of roughage in the feed ration is limited significantly. However, this feeding strategy is not applicable in practice, as it challenges the cows’ health as well as the farmer’s economy.

AU researchers will look further into which physical, physiological and microbial qualities that distinguish the climate-efficient dairy cow from the less efficient dairy cow. Photo: Linda S. Sørensen.

A new project is to lead the way to describing the climate-friendly dairy cow

Aarhus University leads a new research project which is to pave the way for a more climate-efficient dairy production. The aim of the project is to reduce the cow’s methane emission via feeding and to investigate the biological reasons for why cows differ in methane production. Furthermore, researchers will examine how we can implement the new…
