New feed for pigs and poultry

Which are the promising new sources and strategies to reduce pressure on natural resources while feeding or producing feed for pigs and poultry?


This Focus Group is ongoing.


Tasks:

  • Make an inventory of alternative strategies and sources for pig and poultry feed, including both new and underused sources.
  • Analyse the most important pros and cons of these alternative feed sources, strategies and supply chains.
  • Analyse their general economic and environmental sustainability, analyse their technical viability and safety, and identify potential tools/barriers affecting a broad uptake.
  • Propose potential innovative actions and ideas for Operational Groups (funded under the Rural Development Programmes) to stimulate the use and improvement of alternative resources.
  • Identify needs from practice and possible gaps in knowledge which may be solved by further research.
  • Identify how new and emerging alternatives may be transferred to other conditions (location, type of production) and how they may be checked and standardised in a cost-effective way to obtain safe and steady products at farm level.
  • Identify innovative business models for farms and/or third parties.
