The activity will focus on nutrient and energy utilization in specific physiologic processes of monogastric animals. This knowledge will be applied to sustainable and environmentally friendly animal production systems based on landraces, native breeds, to obtain animal products of high quality starndards. Additionally, the effects and mechanisms of action of biologically active substances intended to be used in the aforementioned animal production systems will be explored, both in local and cosmopolitan breeds.
