The purpose of this project is to investigate to what extent substances in algae inhibit microbial methane formation in cows. Several substances, so-called bioactive substances, in red, green and brown algae, have a significant methane reducing effect. These are promising results but in order to reach a commercial product with efficient methane-reducing effects, knowledge of the effect on the cows' microflora by these substances is needed. This study will use algae substances, which in already funded projects have been identified to give effects when fed to cows, and further investigate the impact on these on the rumen microbial community. In addition we aim to investigate the possibility of optimizing the substances in algae through a more controlled cultivation. Reduced methane production will strengthen the ompetitiveness of the dairy and also beef industry.

Syftet med detta projekt är att undersöka i vilken omfattning substanser i alger hämmar mikrobiell metanproduktion i kor. Flera substanser, s.k. bioaktiva substanser, i röda, gröna och bruna alger har en signifikant metanreducerande effekt. Detta är lovande resultat och för att kunna ta fram ett effektivt kommersiellt metanreducerande preparat behövs kunskap om effekten på kornas mikroflora av dessa substanser. Denna studie planerar att nyttja resultat från redan finansierade studier där effekten av utfordring av alger på ko-nivå identifieras. Utifrån dessa studier vill vi i detta projekt undersöka olika bioaktiva substanser och deras inverkan på mikroorganismerna i vommen och om det går att optimera innehållet av substanserna i algerna genom en mer kontrollerad odling. En minskad metanproduktion kommer kunna stärka konkurrenskraften inom mjölk-, men även köttbranschen.

Milk

The ability of milk to coagulate is crucial for cheese production. We have previously shown high occurrence of non-coagulating milk from Swedish Red Dairy cattle and identified milk proteins as potential markers for this undesirable trait. In this project we will increase the understanding of the …

Crop production

Cereal production is limited by many different factors. Leaf diseases are often well known, while diseases on roots are more difficult to identify. Root diseases are often caused by oomycetes, fungus-like microorganisms that live for years in soil and on old root debris, parasitizing the roots of …
