AF-14215 Breed&Feed4Food (BO-47-001-008, BO-22.04-010-001)

Project: EZproject

Project Details


Breed&Feed4Food richt zich op verbetering van resource efficiency in de veehouderij en op
preventieve diergezondheid. Het samenspel tussen genetische achtergrond
(genotype) van dieren, diervoedersamenstelling en de microflora in
het maagdarmkanaal staan centraal in het onderzoek.
