GI Livestock & Wildlife

GI Livestock & wildlife studies the composition and activity of GI microbiota in livestock, companion animals and wildlife. The research is also examining the microbiota’s interaction with their host in relation to animal nutrition, health and performance. Furthermore, the environmental footprint of livestock production is being investigated to contribute to more-sustainable livestock production by reducing methane emissions from ruminants and developing alternatives to antibiotics.
