Area 1 (‘Economy’): Improve the productivity, resilience and competitiveness of European Animal Production
Research constitutes an inseparable part of the University activities. Two main areas may be distinguished, i.e. research projects realised as grants and the European Union programmes where the objectives are determined the author of a project or by contracting agency. The other comprises projects implemented as the statutory activities. These projects should be strictly connected with a widely understood didactic process and support it. Participation in extensive research programmes also international ones and adopting information technologies to assist the development of agriculture should build up the importance and strengthen the University identity both in Poland and abroad.
Studies on mechanism of stress and adaptation in animals, the role of opioidal system in growth and immunological processes in various animal species, endocrine regulation of ovary functioning in domestic birds.
Assessment of genetic parameters, methods of bull and cow breeding usability assessment.
Genetic improvement of cattle breeds utilised in south-eastern Poland, the use of immunogenetics for cattle breeding practice.
Management of wild animal populations.
Evaluation of animal products, modification of chemical composition and quality of meat.
Utilisation of horses (for sport, recreation and rehabilitation).
In vitro maturation and fertilisation of oocytes, embryo transfer, animal reproduction control, cytogenetics and neonatology.
Fish reproduction control (particularly under conditions of polluted water environment),
Parasitology, vermiculture, re-introduction and rehabilitation of predatory birds.
Physiological bases of animal nutrition; implementation of the INRA valuation and standardisation of feeds system; animal feed production technologies.
Disturbances of geo-magnetic field and relationships between animal health and geopathic zones, hygiene of poultry incubation.
