NordGen - the Nordic Genetic Resource Center - and researchers from the Nordic countries working on phenotypic and genetic characterization of milk of dairy cattle have established a Nordic network on characterization of milk from native Nordic cattle breeds. 

The objectives of the NordMilk Research Network are to:
  • utilize synergies between Nordic research groups on genetic and phenotypic characterization of milk from the Nordic native cattle breeds by coordinating and creating national and joint projects
  • promote development of dairy niche product from the Nordic native cattle breeds
  • promote sustainable use and conservation of the native Nordic cattle breeds

The research network has grown in 2016 and received funding from the Nordic Committee of Agriculture and Food Research (NKJ) for networking activities.
