Fredericton Junction based Atlantic Dairy and Forage Institute is looking to undergo a $8.5 million expansion in part to research how to improve the quality of milk.

The Institute hopes to examine how the quality of feed impacts the quality of milk which is produced by cows. By determining how the quality of the feed impacts the resulting milk, it may be possible to adjust feed to get milk with desirable characteristics such as lower amounts of saturated fats or omega-3 fatty acids.
