Studies related to the nutrition of poultry, swine, rabbits and other non-ruminant species of economic importance. Therefore, research will be developed related to aspects of metabolism and digestive parameters, the evaluation of conventional and alternative foods, the determination of nutritional requirements, the evaluation of dietary additives, among others. It will include research related to the development of production processes based on the use of nutrition and feeding, management, reproduction, animal improvement, bioclimatology, behavior, animal welfare and a quality of products of animal origin. With regard to bees, it will focus on research on the creation and management of native and exotic species, exploration of their products and services in agricultural pollination.
2- Ruminant Production, Forages and Pastures
Studies to evaluate the chemical and nutritional characteristics of conventional and alternative foods in ruminant feeding; evaluation of animal products, such as the quality of meat and milk; establishment of the nutritional requirements of cattle, sheep and goats. In this line of research, aspects of the evaluation of native and exotic forages with great potential for use as forage will also be addressed. It will include research related to the development of production processes based on the use of tools for feeding, handling, reproduction, animal breeding, bioclimatology, behavior, animal welfare, the quality of products of animal origin and management techniques that maximize production, value and the persistence of native and exotic forages.
