  • Evaluation of additives and new formulations to improve production performance, intestinal health and digestibility, immune status, etc.
  • Development of early-age diets and evaluation of their effects on the growth-pregnancy phase, including weighing of animals individually or in groups and measurement of dorsal fat in each period.
  • Design of specific feeding programmes for each genetics and subsequent analysis of carcass yield and meat quality.
  • Evaluation of strategies to improve animal welfare, reduce stress and mitigate environmental impact.
