Leader, Pigs in Livestock Systems Team
Responsible of a research team working on pigs in livestock systems, Ludovic Brossard is research engineer in nutrition and growth modelling for pigs at INRA (UMR PEGASE), France. He has a PhD in Biology and Agronomy obtained at ENSA Rennes in 2004. He is working on heterogeneity among individuals to integrate it in growing pig nutritional models and study its implication in definition of feeding strategies considering animal performance, economic results and environmental impact. In the past 5 years, this includes the development of precision feeding concepts and their inclusion in decision support tools, for instance through projects as the Horizon 2020 EU Feed-a-Gene program (2015-2020).
