Abstract

To close nutrient cycles, farmers in Echt Overijssel! (Truly Overijssel!) want to use more regional feedstuffs and less inputs from further afield. Examples from farmers and calculated rations are given. An average milk production of 7,000 kg per cow per lactation fits best, with well balanced rations consisting of grassclover, grains and possibly some silage maize or grass from nature conservation areas.
