Exploring protein crop production for quality feed
To feed their animals, most EU livestock farmers depend on imported raw materials that are rich in protein, such as soybean. These resources have an unstable market price and they may be genetically modified. This is why the Operational Group TERUnic is exploring ways to help farmers grow protein-rich crops on their own farms while remaining profitable.
