The company INGULADOS, aimed at applying research on hunting and livestock farms, has formed a consortium with the company EA Group S. Coop, specialized in lamb meat production, to carry out the project “New postbiotic compounds from ungulates to improve the immune system of lambs” (POSBIOLAMB). This project was created in order to control the main diseases affecting lambs, as an alternative natural method with proven efficacy to the current use of antibiotics as prophylactics due to the difficulty in the detection of the clinical signs of these diseases. Thus, the general objective of the project is to design and generate knowledge about the effect of using new postbiotic products of natural origin from wild ungulates to control digestive and respiratory problems in lambs.
To generate knowledge based on industrial research, the scientific-technical collaboration of the Extremadura Scientific and Technological Research Center, as well as the departments of Animal Production and Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and Genetics of the University of Extremadura, is key and favors the the relations between the research community and the food sector. In addition, it also has the collaboration of the private research center Imasde Agroalimentaria S.L and other external analysis laboratories.
The POSBIOLAMB project is being carried out due to the aid provided by the Junta de Extremadura aimed at financing industrial research projects and experimental development of companies in the region of Extremadura under the operational program of the European Regional Development Fund (FEDER) corresponding to the 2014-2020 programming period.
