Sustainable Food and Animal production based on natural resources

There is an increased global demand for meat and dairy products based on sustainable agricultural management but also an increasing demand of animal products based on livestock and game under more extensive management. Within these two dimensions, improved environmental concerns and improved competitiveness, call for research and dissemination toward the farming communities, corporate organisations and food producing industries.

We want to present and discuss, research, education and extension activities in it this context with focus on food, dairy, beef and wildlife. We want to encourage collaborations with with animal-, plant- and food scientists for full integration of knowledge within the value chain from feed resources in the field to the consumer products.
