Call Details

Work Programme : Food - Food security, sustainable agriculture and forestry, marine and maritime and inland water research
Call Identifier : SFS-46-2017: Alternative production system to address anti-micro
Call Type : Targeted call
Call Description : Confined systems dominate in modern livestock production worldwide, in particular as regards monogastric species. These systems often constrain natural animal behaviour and may result in health problems and product quality issues. The EU and China are facing a similar challenge, though not to the same extent.
Focusing on monogastric species in confined intensive systems, the proposed research activities should assess the links between livestock welfare and health, the underlying factors, the related use of anti-microbial drugs and the subsequent presence of residues in products and their spread into the environment.
