Feed- A- Gen seeks the best adaptation of the different components of monogastric livestock production systems (ie, pigs, poultry and rabbits) to improve efficiency and reduce the global environmental impact. This implies the development of new and alternative food and nutritional resource technologies, the identification and selection of robust animals that adapt better to fluctuating conditions, and the development of feeding techniques that optimize the potential of Food and Animal .
