The Institute for Animal Science

bundles - together with the workgroup of Professor Büscher of the Institute of Agricultural Engineering - competences in the complex field of animal food production. The cooperation enables the interdisciplinary conception of problem-solving-oriented research and at the same time can achieve the necessary focus on innovative research fields in an international context. This also ensures the high quality of education and training by the Bonn animal sciences for the future as part of agriculture as a system science.
