My research area covers nutrition and physiology of cattle with focus on animal production, nutrient utilization, nutrient excretion and impact of animal production on climate and environment. The research activities include:

  • Nutrition and feeding strategies which support a high productivity and a low environmental impact of dairy cows

  • Feeding strategies for dairy cows with low content of roughage
  • Effect of diet on methane emission

I have a major task in giving scientifically based advice to authorities (Myndgihedsberedskab) about effects of livestock production on climate and environment. I also teach in courses for bachelor and master students about effects of livestock production on climate and environment.
