How can pig/poultry farmers improve their own organic feed supply?

This meeting will discuss previous research from Europe and also some potential options for Scottish producers. We will have a presentation from DR Robin Walker from SRUC on the RISS trial and opportunities to increase on-farm protein production through intercropping.

The OK-Net EcoFeed project is looking at the supply of organic feed for monogastric animals (pigs, layers and broiler chicken), more details can be found here. It is particularly looking at alternative organic protein sources due to the dependence in the EU on imported Soya, and the need for more regional food to be used.

This is a free event. Booking is required, book online here.
