Abstract
Program group “Nutrition” research work includes contents dealing with feed production and conservation, methods of feed quality evaluation regarding to feed consumption and physiology of digestion and metabolism in different animal species. A knowledge of the nutrient needs of animals is of primary importance if we wish to achieve maximum performance on minimal nutrient intake. In the last period there has been a general increase in the genetic capabilities of animals, allowing improved production. This may alter requirements. Incorrect nutrition causes fertility disturbances and health disorders in animals. Animal nutrition influences animal products quality and this fact is directly connected with the problems in human nutrition. The production of healthy food, research of food quality and impacts of food quality on human health are important parts of nutrition science. More and more important are also the connections between feed production and animal feeding regarding to environmental pollution. Knowledge obtained in nutrition research enables optimal nutrients availability and a reduction in pollutant concentrations in animal excrements (nitrogen, phosphorus, heavy metals). Standard and current chemical and biological methods are used to execute efficient experimental work. In vitro and in vivo methods are introduced (in vitro digestibility, Hohenheim gas test, in sacco protein degradability, nutrient balance studies, field experiments). Program group Nutrition projects include basic, aplicative and for practice directly available research in different animal species (cattle, sheep, goat, swine, poultry, hors, rabbit, laboratory animal, fish, dog and wild animals). Selected topics of prepared and performed research projects can be described by quotation of key words: - nitrogen – crude protein, NPN, true protein, amino-acids, digestibility, degradability, availability - energy value of feed, energy utilisation - fiber, detergent fiber, cell wall, feed consumption, digestibility - soluble carbohydrates, starch - minerals, macroelements, microelements, heavy metals - lipids, unsaturated fatty acids - free radicals, oxidative stress - probiotics, nutricins
