Summary

The project objectives are:
- to develop and demonstrate a robust system to produce a new organic feed supplement consisting of live insect larvae with an ideal amino acid composition. The project provides a sustainable way to meet the requirement from EU for organic farms (100% organic feed by 2012) and improved animal welfare in poultry flocks.
- to investigate the effect of larvae growth on the microbiology of the manure, including selected pathogens and human zoonotic bacteria to assess the microbiological safety to the system,
- to investigate a prebiotic effect in the digestive system of poultry,
- to demonstrate that the integrated ON-farm system is ideal for treating animal manure through composting with larvae and thereby recycle energy, N and P,
- to investigate the effect of feeding on organic meat and eggs produced with the new feed composition through taste tests and laboratory tests,
- and to demonstrate the high value of larvae digested manure as greenhouse and garden organic fertilizer product.

Summary translation

I projektet tages der fat i den biologiske problemstilling omkring udvikling og demonstration af et robust system til fremstilling af et nyt økologisk fodermiddel baseret på patogenfrie insektlarver. Således vil EU’s krav om 100 procent økologisk foder kunne efterleves i fjerkræbesætninger. Dette modsvarer ønsket om forsyningen af essentielle aminosyrer ved 100 pct. økologisk fodring.
Projektet vil yderligere undersøge, hvordan fodring med larver påvirker tarmsundheden og modstandskraften i fordøjelsessystemet hos fjerkræ.
Projektet bidrager især til at løsning af udfordringerne inden for forbedret dyrevelfærd / økologisk fjerkræproduktion
Projektet er et samarbejdsprojekt mellem: Teknologisk Institut, DTU-Veterinærinstituttet, Videncen-ter for Landbrug/Fjerkræproduktion.
