Broilers given a better last ride

Scientists and private enterprises join forces to improve the transportation of broilers to the slaughterhouse. This will be a boost for animal welfare, the environment and food quality – and will save the poultry industry 40m DKK.

Optimized vaccination promotes fish health and a healthy environment

Rainbow trout and other aquaculture fish can be produced with a lower consumption of antibiotics if the vaccination strategy is optimized. This would benefit the fish as well as the environment.

Cooling affects the cheese-making properties of milk

Putting raw milk into cold storage impairs its cheese-making properties. This is the result of a study which the Department of Food Science at Aarhus University and Arla Foods have carried out. The impairment is, however, partially offset by the subsequent heat treatment at the dairy.

The Danish nitrogen budget in a nutshell

Cutting food waste, improving the recycling of nitrogen in food production and new agricultural technologies are some of the methods that can be used to reduce nitrogen emissions to the environment. These are the conclusion drawn from the development of a new nitrogen budget for Denmark by scientists at Aarhus University.
