We celebrate the 10-year anniversary of our Nordic Feed Science Conference this year. I
hope that we will be able to continue with this conference for a number of years to come.
There are some foreseeable problems with this, which we will be a topic for the conference.
Early June is often a lovely time in Uppsala and, over the years, we have had mostly very
pleasant weather. We hope that you will enjoy your stay and make the most of the 18.5-h day
length during the conference as well as the scientific contributions.
We have 77 registered participants and a total of 26 written contributions this year, of which
11 are in the form of posters. In addition, there will be time for discussing protein evaluation
and the future of the NFSC.
Global temperature is increasing and the future of coming generations is compromised. What
can we do to change this? Everybody is talking about the weather, but nobody is doing
anything about it, as Mark Twain once said. The Nordic countries, except Iceland,
experienced a severe drought last year, which farmers had great problems in dealing with. We
therefore, have sessions specifically devoted to climate and environment and non-traditional
fibrous feeds (ICE – in case of emergency).
This year’s conference also focuses on ruminant protein evaluation and, for that reason,
Hélène Lapierre, Karl-Heinz Südekum, Pekka Huhtanen and Elisabeth Nadeau have
graciously accepted to present their work on the conference. In addition, we look forward to a
number of presentations on ruminant nutrition, models and forage conservation. During
several of the sessions above, the NorFor model will be scrutinized.
Bioprocess Control Sweden AB will demonstrate their latest gas-in vitro system at the
conference and, during the guided poster presentations, you will also be able to see our new
research scale extruder at work.
