Animal production and feeding

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

    Abstract

    Organic livestock farmers will try to accommodate the natural needs and behaviour of their animals as much as possible. They pay extra attention to animal health and welfare, but also set high standards for housing, outside access and feed. Dutch researchers are looking for practical solutions to the problems that currently limit the sustainability and growth of organic animal production. The ultimate objective of current research is to ensure that Dutch organic dairy farms use organic rations made up of locally or regionally produced raw materials, and that they supply manure for the production of these raw materials.
