April 24th 2020: 

Although billions of people all over the world have been affected by COVID-19 in several different ways, the research industry remains active. 

Within a few months of 2020 we have had several publications published using GreenFeed and we do not see any slowing of studies scheduled for this year. Maybe delays but no cancellations.

We’re also very pleased to know that five young animal scientists achieved their degrees by using our GreenFeed system, congratulations and we sincerely wish you all a bright future:
