Growing protein-rich roughage/silage can help increase self-sufficiency and improve the crop rotation on organic poultry farms. Different types of silage can be fed to layers daily and contribute to the poultry's nutrient requirements.
The roughage/silage is allocated several times a day with a mechanical suspension system. It also keeps the layers occupied and provides activity, minimising the risk of feather pecking.
The method is considered a new concept of producing protein rich roughage that can be used in feed formulation.
Target groups are organic farmers, but it is also valuable for advisors and scientists.
