The Animal Production and Health Unit focuses its lines on the optimization of livestock production systems and the promotion of their sustainability. Research is conducted for the improvement of the use of local resources, technical efficiency and profitability of ruminant production, and quality of their products, as well as on the study of epidemiology, diagnosis and control of livestock diseases
All this results in relevant contributions in technical management of cattle herds and sheep flocks, such as the development of new feeding systems and their effect on quality and traceability of animal products, improvement of fertility and prolificacy through management and genetic selection, product diversification in Aragonese livestock breeds, and the effects of livestock farming systems on the environment and their ability to provide ecosystem services. In the field of animal health, significant advances have been made in epidemiological studies and methods of diagnosis, prevention and control of diseases such as brucellosis, salmonellosis or parasitic infections.
