Animal Production Science Centre

Harper Adams University conducts both strategic and applied research on improving the efficiency of production of farmed animals, with a particular focus on nutrition.

Studies involve dairy and beef cattle, sheep, pigs, poultry and fish. Much of this work is funded by industry.
