Are you doing research in agriculture or animal science? Are you interested in animal nutrition and livestock farming? Would you like to visit two state-of-the-art animal research sites? Have you ever been to an international exhibition on animal production?

With the support of CWO at FBW, the Laboratory for Animal Nutrition and Animal Product Quality (LANUPRO) has the pleasure to invite you on a free three-day study trip to France to visit the IFIP digiferme in Romillé, INRA PEGASE division in Rennes, and the SPACE on the 8th to 10th of September 2019.
