The new EIP-AGRI Focus Group on “New feed for pigs and poultry” has been launched. Check here the selected experts, including Barbara Früh, from FiBL Switzerland, the project memeber of OK-Net EcoFeed.
The tasks of the Group will cover:
- 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.
EIP-AGRI Focus Groups are temporary groups of selected experts, focusing on a specific subject and sharing knowledge and experience. Each group explores practical innovative solutions to problems or opportunities in the field, and draws on experience derived from related useful projects. Each EIP-AGRI Focus Group meets twice and produces a recommendations and outcomes report. The groups also discuss and document research results, best practices and identify the implications for further research activities that will help to solve practical problems in the sector.
