With seven years of research activities under our belts, Foods of Norway as a centre has now achieved many milestones and documented a lot of exciting results. Only during the past six months, several large field trials have been completed, and even though we are still awaiting some of the final results, we expect interesting findings.
2021 has been another exciting year for Foods of Norway. Thanks to the devoted partners in the centre and our many talented researchers and technicians, we have been able to continue our path towards more sustainable feed resources for farmed animals and fish.
Can pigs eat trees? This experiment with 48 piglets at Ås gård, large-scale trials with grass and research to improve feed efficiency are just some of Foods of Norway's research activities during spring 2017. In this newsletter you can read more about our research and outreach activities.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a nice summer!
About six months have passed since NMBU’s first Centre for Research-based Innovation (SFI) was launched. The establishment of a new fermentation platform for feed trials is progressing well. Researchers have tested local feed ingredients on Norwegian Landrace pigs. And Foods of Norway was presented in a keynote talk at the prestigious Global forum for innovations in agriculture in Abu Dhabi in February.
