Research field Animal Nutrition

The main element of animal nutrition is the adequate feeding of agricultural livestock (nutrient requirement of the organism – nutrient supply from feed/food – evaluation of nutrient bioavailability or anti-nutritive substances in nutrition). Furthermore, animal nutrition is quantitatively one of the most potent factors to influence environmentally important emissions (CO2, CH4, N2O, NOx, NH3, P, etc.) and water consumption in primary food production.
