Projektnummer: H-16-47-178 • Status: Pågående • Ansökningsår: 2016
Many horses in training show motion asymmetries, but it is not known if these are due to pain caused by training; or due to individual biological variations. The aim of this project is to initiate three cohort studies where changes in motion symmetry will be monitored over time in riding horses and …Läs mer

The aim of the project is to study how instructors at Swedish riding schools instruct and communicate "the riding feeling". The focus is on communication, pupil´s learning and the interaction between instructor, pupil and horse. The "riding feeling" is a tacit knowledge and refers to the rider’s …Läs mer

Genomic selection is revolutionizing animal breeding, since selection is based on the joint genetic merit of all SNP alleles across the genome. Lack of accurate and frequent data, however, forms the most important barrier to realize the full potential of genomic selection. There is on the other …Läs mer
Projektnummer: V1330025 • Status: Pågående • Ansökningsår: 2013
The aim is to study the possibility to improve profitability on herd level in Swedish milk production by using sexed semen and genotyping heifers in the dairy herds and combine this with planned crossbreeding and use of beef semen. For this purpose we will estimate genetic progress and do economic …Läs mer

A primary reason for unhealthy legs and claws are unsuitable floor properties in dairy houses,
which may result in slippery floors and slip injuries to cows and mastitis.
The hygiene of a floor surface and floor properties affect the cow claw/floor interaction and gait.
The aim is to determine an …

This SLU - NMBU collaborative study seeks to improve the performance, health and welfare of the Norwegian/ Swedish Coldblooded trotter. Experts in Equine clinical veterinary medicine, performance evaluation and genetic testing will analyze the genome of this horse breed for: 1) race performance …Läs mer
Projektnummer: V1350026 • Status: Pågående • Ansökningsår: 2013
Pneumonia is the most prevalent disease in Swedish feedlot cattle herds, causing mortality as well as affecting weight gain, rearing time and economy. Viral infections, including bovine respiratory syncytial virus (BRSV) and bovine coronavirus (BCV) as major actors, cause respiratory disease. …Läs mer
Projektnummer: V1450008 • Status: Pågående • Ansökningsår: 2014
Piglet mortality in Swedish pig herds is too high and if the sow should be completely loose or fixed a short time in connection with farrowing, is an important issue.
However, to perform internationally publishable studies of piglet mortality, parallel studies in the same herd, are required. These …
Projektnummer: H1333159 • Status: Pågående • Ansökningsår: 2013
We are currently evaluating the effectiveness of grass buffer strips (GBS-eff) for nutrient retention. Today, there are no obligations to cut or remove the grass on GBS which may lead to phosphorus (P) saturation. In the on-going field experiments we are testing if removal (harvesting) the grass …Läs mer
