Animal science in the agenda in Copenhagen

Scientists from more than 40 countries will be coming to the international congress about animal science, EAAP 2014, in Copenhagen in August. Aarhus University is organising the big event in collaboration with the University of Copenhagen and the Knowledge Centre for Agriculture.

Diet for sows important for piglet survival

The diet fed to sows at the end of their pregnancy affects the production of colostrum and, to a certain extent, its composition. However, milk yield and onset of lactation appear not to be influenced by sow nutrition during this period.

Best for bees to be stay-at-homes

Honey bees with roots in the local environment manage much better in the struggle for survival than imported honey bees from foreign environments.

Cattle code cracked in detail

The cattle genome has now been mapped to a hitherto unknown degree of detail. This constitutes a quantum leap for research into the history and genetics of cattle.

An HTL pilot plant that is capable of converting biomass into crude oil is under way at Research Centre AU Foulum. The underlying technology is expected to significantly increase the amount of energy extracted from biomass. Photo: Lars Kruse

Boost to cutting-edge technology with new research project at Aarhus University

Scientists at Aarhus University are up-scaling an HTL facility that is capable of converting wet biomass into crude oil. The facility, which is expected to be ready by the end of 2014, is based on the university’s cutting-edge research.

Light machinery is needed for harvesting and recovering biomass from marginal areas. This technological challenge is one of the many components of a new research project at Aarhus University.

Let’s have fun – let’s have science!

Science can be a laughing matter without being a joke if the scientist understands how to present his work in an entertaining and informative way. Just ask PhD student Michele De Rosa, who has recently won a science communication award.
