Snelle meettechnieken voor nutriëntenbenutting bij landbouwhuisdieren

Abstract

Efficient feeding of animals in livestock production deserves constant attention. Feed is input for milk, meat and egg production. It is a challenge to use nutrients as efficiently as possible, and produce ‘more with less’. Feeding the animals at their requirements can be improved if the effects of nutrient intake can be measured within a short time. This project made an overview of possible ‘rapid measuring techniques’ to be used in the near future. Each technique was scored for relevance, technical feasibility, practical application and the investment needed for development (time and money). From an expert workshop, measuring by means of sensor boluses or fluorescent markers as well as manure analysis, were defined as most promising for future research and practice.
