Feed materials and feed additives for monogastric organic livestock

The objective of workpackage 4 is to provide knowledge on how to achieve 100 per cent organic rations in diets for organic livestock by.

This is to be done by:

  • Identifying constraints related to the restrictions in the availability of limiting amino acids for pigs and poultry in relation to animal health, product quality, productivity and economics

  • Evaluating the availability of limiting amino acids, including the various strategies used to deal with the restrictions in different European member and candidate countries.
