This is an introductory video to the EU funded project called ECO-FCE. Through a better understanding of the interactions between animal genetics, gut characteristics and the attributes of feed, ECO-FCE will propose strategies to improve feed use efficiency (FCE) in pigs and broiler chickens whilst also reducing their ecological footprint.
