Nutrition Projects

Animal feed

Under our Research Partnerships, AHDB Dairy funds research to improve the accuracy of feed rationing, focussing on feed conversion efficiency and reduced environmental impact. Other research projects address the potential to reduce dietary crude protein without compromising health and productivity, mineral and trace element supplementation, and good rumen health.

Under the Defra Sustainable Livestock Production LINK programme, AHDB Dairy is participating in collaborative research to optimise the use of Distillers Dried Grains with Solubles (DDGS), a co-product of the bioethanol industry.
