Research subjects

During 8 years, Jean-François worked in animal nutrition in the team of Professor ISTASSE and Professor HORNICK. His thesis focused on different strategies in finishing cull cows. His research also focused on different types of dietary supplementation to improve herd health and nutritional quality of beef. Also in the same department, since 8 years, Jean-François works specifically in the field of veterinary ecology in the team of Professor NICKS. Their works focus on the environmental impacts of pig housing. Furthermore, Jean-François Cabaraux is copromoter of a PRD (2013-2018) "Increasing the productivity of goat farms in northern Morocco by improving the management of nutrition, reproduction and health" (promoter: Professor KIRSCHVINK, UNamur) and promoter with Professor HORNICK of a second PRD (2015-2020) "Support for improving the productivity of urban suburban and Senegalese sheep farms" funded by ARES-CCD. His involvement in these two projects focuses on the aspects of “environment” and “animal nutrition”.
