This technical guide synthesizes knowledge available about:
- The physiological mechanisms of poultry,
- Nutritional requirements and recommended intakes,
- The feeding behaviour of organic poultry,
- The nutritional value of raw materials,
- The nutritional value and possible intakes of foraging
- On-farm feed manufacturing
It also describes 100 % organic feeding strategies and expected zootechnical performances.
The guide covers specifically organic poultry production. Target groups are farmers and advisors.

Summary translation

A la destination des éleveurs et techniciens, ce cahier technique fait la synthèse des connaissances sur les mécanismes physiologiques des volailles, les besoins des animaux et apports nutritionnels recommandés, la conduite alimentaire des volailles bio, la valeur nutritionnelle des matières premières, les apports nutritionnels des parcours et la fabrication d’aliment des aliments à la ferme. Il décrit également des stratégies d’alimentation 100% bio et les performances zootechniques attendues.

EPrint Type:Practice tool
What problem does the tool address?:Feed is responsible for the main part of costs in organic poultry production. Achieving the goal of 100 % organic feeding for poultry presents some challenges as it may be more difficult to achieve a balanced diet when certain protein-rich raw materials are not easily available.
What solution does the tool offer?:This technical guide summarizes the expertise of researchers and advisors and the knowledge acquired through various research programmes about poultry feeding in organic farming.
Type of Practice Tool:Leaflets & guidelines
