RuminOmics Technical visit
RuminOmics Technical Visit on Methane and Feed Efficiency in Dairy Cows - Wednesday June 25, 2014 in Nottingham, UK, 9:00 – 13:00.
The RuminOmics Technical Visit will organise discussion between industry representatives and researchers on state-of-the-art developments regarding feed efficiency and methane emissions in dairy cows. We aim to acquaint industry representatives with the hands-on experimental work of the RuminOmics research project, and to have your input on the tools under development and their applicability for industrial use.
The Technical Visit is organised alongside the Nottingham Feed Conference, which is held on June 24 & 25 2014 and is aimed at representatives of feed and breeding industry, researchers and other people interested in this field.
Connecting the animal genome to the microbiome, feed efficiency and methane emission: that is the aim of the RuminOmics research project. Eleven partners from across Europe work together on the RuminOmics project, lead by Professor John Wallace of the University of Aberdeen.
