In addition, ILVO also has expertise in conducting feed-related research in farm animals and in aquaculture. On the one hand, ILVO has the necessary accommodation for this purpose to perform zootechnical tests such as digestion studies, performance studies or emission studies for the main farm animals (cattle, pigs and small animals). On the other hand, ILVO offers the expertise and equipment to guide all stakeholders interested in feed evaluation and analysis of feed raw materials (e.g. new by-products, alternative protein sources,…). ILVO is also currently investing in a new production line to produce precision test feeds for internal an external use.

ILVO Marine has accommodation for conducting feed trials with marine organisms (fish, shellfish and crustaceans). ILVO Marine also has pre-pilot scale photobioreactors for the cultivation of microalgae.
