Project description

Boldenone is a synthetic anabolic steroid that since a couple of years frequently is detected throughout the EU in urine samples of animals that are not suspected of illegal treatment. This projects aims at clarifying the controversy of the origin of boldenone in cattle and calves. This by, amongst others, the study of the phytosterol profile of different feed types.
