Bacterial infection in joints, or septic arthritis, is an important problem in foals because it leads to non-weight bearing lameness that affects the foal’s welfare and because survival after treatment can be as low as 42 %. The prognosis for coming to start in a race is also reduced. A study funded by the Equine Research Foundation in 2012 and earlier studies in pigs and chickens have shown that blood vessels in growth cartilage canals are involved in the pathogenesis. The first project aim is to investigate how the blood and lymphatic circulations are organised around the joints of growing foals, in order to determine which structures require treatment in septic arthritis. The second project aim is to examine recommended techniques for treatment and follow-up in order to determine which structures are reached with these techniques. The two aims will answer the overall aim of developing improved treatments with increased survival following septic arthritis in foals.

Bakteriell infeksjon i ledd, eller septisk artritt, er en viktig problemstilling hos føll fordi den gir alvorlig halthet som påvirker føllets velferd og fordi overlevelse etter behandling kan være så lav som 42 %. Det har også vært vist redusert prognose for å komme til start i løp. En studie finansiert av Stiftelsen Hesteforskning i 2012 og tidligere studier i gris og kylling har vist at blodkarene i karkanaler i vekstbrusken spiller en rolle i sykdomsforløpet. Prosjektets første delmål er å undersøke hvordan blodsirkulasjon og lymfekretsløp er organisert i forbindelse med ledd hos unge føll i vekst, for å avdekke hvilke strukturer det er nødvendig å behandle ved leddinfeksjon. Prosjektets andre delmål er å undersøke anbefalte teknikker for behandling og oppfølging av leddinfeksjon hos føll, for å avdekke hvilke strukturer som nås med disse teknikkene. Prosjektets delmål vil svare på hovedmålet om å utvikle bedre behandlingsteknikker med økt overlevelse etter leddinfeksjon hos føll.

In nature, piglets are exposed to a wide range of bacteria that promote a balanced (healthy) gut microbiota. On the farm, routine cleaning can limit exposure to beneficial bacteria leading to an unbalanced gut microbiota. An unbalanced gut microbiota increases the risk of health problems and alters …

In recent years, many herds have been affected by a new neonatal piglet diarrhoea (NNPD) unresponsive to conventional treatment and preventive measures. We have recently shown that NNPD is not caused by previously well-known infectious agents. Instead, the diarrhoea was found to be associated with …

The aim of the project is to develop tools which can be used for individually adapted lactation lengths based on the biological conditions of the cow. Today a one year calving interval and a short lactation period, is recommended. The recommendations are based on 30 years old information and do not …

The aim of the project is to study effects of LED-light on milk production and activity in dairy cows. The main hypotheses are that LED light allows maintained cow activity and milk production with less energy used for illumination, and that LED-light makes it possible to apply a dark period during …

During recent decades the area with brushwood has increased in the Swedish rural landscape. A study has shown that the annual harvest of brushwood for fuel purposes could amount to about 6 TWh. Some advantages with the utilization of brushwood as fuel are that the growth areas do not compete with …
