Here are project sheets of the AGRI Innovation summit 2019.
Here are those relating to the theme "Feed self-sufficiency and animal health"
About the theme:
These two subjects are combined in order to look at livestock production systems with the threefold objective of (i) reducing input supplies; (ii) optimising farm labour, and (iii) improving animal health and welfare. Reducing feed costs reduces the impact on farms of fluctuations in cereals and soya prices. The selected projects will showcase systems that enhance autonomy, contribute to developments in livestock rearing methods and encourage integrated crop and livestock production and the introduction of new crops, including protein-rich crops. The evolution in livestock production methods aims to improve animal health, thereby decreasing the consumption of veterinary medicines, reducing losses (mortality) and ensuring greater feed efficiency, all resulting in lower costs for farmers.
