Anders J. Hamnes (MSc) has recently completed his Masters on Locally Produced Pelleted Feed for Reindeer at the Department of Arctic Biology, in the University of Tromsø.

Anders is the very first student to finish his Masters degree in the Physiology of Arctic Ruminants (Beitende Dyrs Fysiologi), at the  Arctic Natural Resource Management and Agriculture (ANL = Arktisk Naturbruk og Landbruk).


His Masters evaluated a locally produced pelleted feed based on an early cut timothy as an emergency feed for reindeer in late winter. He also looked at the effect of adding molasses on the palatability, intake and digestibility of the feed.

Anders J. Hamnes was supervised by Prof. Monica A Sundset and Prof. Svein D. Mathiesen, and the project was funded by the Reindeer Husbandry Research Fund (RUF, Norway). His thesis will later be made available at MUNIN on the University Library website.
