Animal & Bioscience Research Department
Research in the ABRD encompasses nutrition, fertility, breeding, health and welfare. Research activities focus on producing profitable animals and the corresponding management strategies to deliver the productivity, sustainability and product quality targets set out in Ireland’s Food Harvest 2020 vision.
The ABRD uses a powerful combination of established animal science techniques, as well as cutting-edge molecular and computational biology tools, to answer relevant industry research questions. Our focus is on dairy and beef cattle and sheep. We have developed animal models that are divergent for a range of economically important traits.
