The Hannah Research Institute, founded in 1928 to undertake research into milk production and milk utilisation, is situated close to the town of Ayr, Scotland. It is administered through the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries for Scotland, Edinburgh, and the Agricultural Research Council advises on the programme of work. There are currently three main areas of research: (i) the efficient production and utilization of feed nutrients for milk production, (ii) the chemistry and physical chemistry of milk constituents, especially protein, in relation to the nutritive role and processing characteristics of milk, and (iii) the effect of environment on the physiology of cattle.
