KD-2017-121_Actualisatie van fosforgehalte in melk (BO-20-004-136)

Project: EZproject

Project Details


The Netherlands is struggling with the P emission ceiling. For dairy cattle P-excretion is calculated as P-excretion = Pintake - Pmilk -Pmeat. Research data on P-content of Dutch milk recently showed that the amount of P in milk could have increased and thus the actual P-excretion of dairy could be overestimated. Therefore, an update on P-content in Dutch milk is necessary. During one year weekly milk samples (representative for the Dutch dairy herd) will be analysed for P-content.
