Elite researcher appointed professor at the Department of Food Science

Hanne Christine Bertram has been appointed professor in food metabolomics at the Department of Food Science at Aarhus University.

In a new research project, researchers from Aarhus University in cooperation with Organic Denmark and a number of commercial partners will be examining whether the addition of organic oregano to cattle feed can reduce the production of methane in the rumen and thus emissions of methane gas.

Oregano may reduce methane in cow burps

A new research project aims to reduce methane emissions from dairy cows by up to 25 per cent. This benefits not only the environment, but also arable farmers and milk producers.

Scientists from Aarhus University will now examine whether an increased incubation temperature may increase the growth of supporting musculature and leg bones.
