Experimental Animal Facilities


The farm animals kept for testing correspond to the longer-term research needs of the projects for the program areas with their characteristics and are representative. Such animal models are kept for pigs, cattle, Pygmy goats, poultry and mice. 

The administration and coordination of the test capacities for cattle, swine and Goats is realised centrally by the Animal Experimentation Group, ensuring the efficient use of personnel.

Ongoing management responsibilities include basic care and supply for the stock, comprehensive base data recording and transportation.
