Feeding pigs and poultry on home-grown feed - a snapshot of European trials - Fri, Mar 12, 2021 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM.
OK-Net EcoFeed is an EU-wide research project to support organic pig and poultry farmers, breeders and the organic feed processing industry in achieving the goal of 100% use of organic and regional feed. In our last meeting, Jerry Alford (Arable and Soils Advisor, Soil Association) reported on findings from 3 UK trials. This time around, we will hear about some trials being run by our European counterparts to help reduce reliance on feed from imported sources. These include trials with foraging pigs, nettles for hens and grass protein.Register for online event here.
