Nanotechnologies permeate all areas of our lives and agriculture has not escaped. Their use is current in crop production, eg in the application of fertilizers or preservatives. However, it also seems to be very promising for livestock breeding, where they will find application in nutrition, treatment and, last but not least, in reproduction.
If we were to collect the biomass of all the mammals living on our planet at this time, we would probably be surprised by the resulting balance. A full 34% of mammalian biomass is human. Another 62% are livestock and only 4% remain wild mammals, from mice, bats and antelopes to whales. Livestock farming fundamentally shapes the Earth’s environment. One way to reduce the overall burden is to intensify, because we will meet the growing needs of humanity with fewer animals with higher productivity. Livestock production intensifies thanks to advances in breeding and the use of new technologies. Nanotechnologies and nanomaterials will become a major helper in the near future. As reproduction management, including assisted livestock reproduction, is one of the key intensification tools, the advent of nanotechnologies and nanomaterials cannot miss this area.
Nanoparticles measuring 1 to 200 nanometers often behave differently than microparticles made of the same material. A significantly higher ratio of surface to total particle volume plays a role here. In the case of nanoparticles, the phenomena resulting from the effects of quantum physics are thus more pronounced. To put it simply, nanoparticles, by their properties, often deviate from our long-held ideas and common sense may not be enough to understand them. Nanoparticles can differ from microparticles by their electric charge, reactivity, binding ability to different surfaces and their ability to penetrate into cells. *

This article will not be a guide to becoming a private farmer – a cow farmer, but will focus on the most important raw material for which we keep cows, and that is milk.
Milk and dairy products accompany most of us for most of our lives. And during this time we consume quite a lot of it. Therefore, it is good to know from what source (breeding) milk comes to our table, because only a healthy and properly fed and cared for cow can produce completely healthy milk.
I know what I’m writing about, because after the cow came to our family, no one was seriously ill for fifteen years (apart from the common flu, sore throat, the daughter had no caries for nine years. The effect of milk on human health was also addressed by Dr. Henry Bieler in his I quote page 187: “Unfortunately, all attempts to preserve milk have led to changes in the breakdown of complex molecules and thus to a reduction in their nutritional value. pasteurized and homogenized milk A simple experiment is enough: pasteurized milk spoils in the intestines, while raw ferments, pasteurized milk also spoils in the bottle when stored in a warm room, and after five days it has a foul-smelling mass. ferments and is edible even as sour… “
