Project


BlueCow - Biomarkers for ruminal and endogenous N-utilization for the reduction of N-emission - TP 2.0

Contact: Prof. Dr. Norbert Reinsch

Duration: 2018-2021

Funding: Federal Office for Agriculture and Food

Abstract:
The aim of this project is to exploit nitrogen emission reduction potentials by exploiting genetic diversity for the milk urea content by using genome- and microbiome-based zootechnical measures in combination with feeding a low protein ration in order to improve nitrogen recycling and nitrogen efficiency in dairy cows.
