Animal Behavior and Livestock Systems Research
ISA Lille’s CASE (Comportement Animal et Systèmes d’Élevage) research unit performs scientific and applied research on the behavior and welfare of livestock (cattle, pigs, poultry).
Part of our Agricultural Science department, the main goals of CASE are to improve housing and management conditions in order to increase animal welfare and better understand the adaptation strategies of farm animals to their environment. Due to our well-developed programs, our researchers have several on-going projects with national and international partners. The CASE research unit also performs training for people working in extension and development services and publishes training books on cattle behavior and welfare.
