The goal of the research programme on health and environment is to provide solutions for the efficient genetic selection of pigs with an enhanced ability to keep up production despite a variety of challenges. In other words, robust pigs that perform without production dips in weight gain, feed conversion rate or number of pigs produced over time.

Animal welfare issues, such as tail biting and aggression, are also well covered in this research.
