The project will provide new nutritional strategies for reducing damaging behaviours in pigs under practical conditions in the setting of low dietary protein supply, which is considered a risk factor for the occurrence of these problems. 
The project contributes to improvement of animal health and welfare under conditions of sustainable use of protein resources and links to the mission of the Ministry of LNV with regard to improvement of animal health, welfare and integrity in more climate neutral animal production systems.
