Healthy livestock product from intensive hoggery and environmental safety

Developing  a  series  of  feed  additives  free  from contamination and elucidating the mechanisms; testing whether only soluble non-starch polysaccharides affect endogenous N losses in pigs; and studying the pre-treatment and nutrients recycling of waste caused by pig industry.       



Integrating animal and crop production systems at the farm-scale in subtropical areas

Manipulating the nutrition and metabolism of ruminants; improving grassland utilization in hilly regions; integrating dairy industry with  crop-farming systems; improving the stability of grassland  productivity ;  and  studying  the  restoration  of degenerated grassland ecosystem.
