Joint International Symposium on the Nutrition of Herbivores/International Symposium on Ruminant Physiology


Joint International Symposium on the Nutrition of Herbivores/International Symposium on Ruminant Physiology covers topics such as:

  • Energy and energetic efficiency: Alternative feed and energy sources from plants
    • Making better use of world-wide low quality biomass resources
    • Cost effective feeding for energetic efficiency
    • Alternative feeds to replace feed grains diverted for ethanol production
    • Manipulating the ruminal genome to optimise these processes
    • The development of alternative technologies and plant species for ethanol production from celluloses to replace the use of grains
  • Maintaining our environment in the face of increased demand for food: Adaptation to and mitigation of climate change
    • The adaptability of reproductive mechanisms to ensure species survival
    • The role for genomics in breeding adaptable species
    • The sustainability of herbivore populations in the wild
  • Healthier food for a hungry world: Enhancing the quality of food from herbivores
    • Changing fatty acid composition of meat and milk
    • The technology of incorporating value-adding nutrients into products
    • Increasing anti-oxidant levels in animal products
    • Incorporating trace minerals into meat and milk
    • On farm factors and their role in eating quality of meat and quality of milk
    • Lengthening the shelf-life of animal products
  • Enhanced animal health and food safety
    • How nutrients influence the immunological competence of animals
