Summary

Green protein from clover-grass or alfalfa is considered a valuable protein source for poultry and pigs. By concentrating the protein fraction from grass clover crops grown locally in Denmark, and by using biorefining technology, one expects to obtain a vegetable protein and amino acid source that can optimize feed formulation of organic layer and pig diets, thereby increasing the sustainability of organic egg and pig meat production as well as increase feed efficiency. Optimisation of the biorefining method is a continuing process, and recent studies have shown that the protein and amino acid content increased from 2016 to 2018.
Target groups are organic farmers, advisors, industry and scientists.

Teaser:Using grass clover to supply organic protein for pigs and poultry
What problem does the tool address?:There is an increasing need for alternative protein sources in the organic poultry and pig production to achieve 100 % organic feeding including locally grown sources.
What solution does the tool offer?:Grass clover fields have many important positive properties in organic farming, and now it is also possible to extract protein from grass clover and produce organic protein feed for the growing pig and poultry production.
