Disposing of fallen stock

BPEX-funded PhD student Ceri Gwyther has been very busy recently disseminating results from her studies at Bangor University. She is looking into ‘Bio-reduction: an alternative strategy for disposing of fallen stock in the UK livestock sector’.

Ceri went to the XVth International Congress on Animal Hygiene 2011 in Vienna to give a presentation on her work on the fate of pathogens in a simulated bioreduction system for livestock carcases.

A poster was also presented at the Plant and Microbiology Wales conference in Bangor which looked at the accelerants that speed up the initial stages of decomposition. These could be beneficial to the farmer by speeding up carcase degradation, freeing up space in the vessel for fresh carcase additions which could potentially save money.

For more information on this project and to see a copy of the presentation/poster please click here.
