Heat pump drier for organic products offers new possibilities

The SusOrgPlus project developed and demonstrated the concept of heat pump drying for the organic sector. The technology allows better product quality and faster drying by a smart control system of the drying conditions and reduces the energy demand by re-using the drying energy

Parasite infection risks for dairy calves raised by nurse cows studied in France

In dairy farms, new rearing practices of calves with nurse cows have been developed by farmers. As a part of the GrazyDaiSy project, three different parasite indicators were measured individually in 438 calves belonging to 38 groups at housing in western France. The results suggest that rearing suckling dairy calves with nurse cows decreases the…

GrazyDaiSy conducts research on how ‘Stable Schools’ help developing cow-calf contact systems

One of the aims of the CORE Organic project GrazyDaiSy is to practice and study social learning and is therefore collaborating with other projects working with cow-calf contact systems. The Danish GrazyDaiSy partners analyse the processes of ‘Stable Schools’, including how they contribute to identify solutions to challenges in cow-calf systems.
