Summary

Based on existing knowledge and current research projects, a number of innovative strategies and approaches are proposed that would enable organic animal farming to contribute to a more sustainable and resilient food systems that also impacts positively on our surrounding socio-ecological landscape. The focus is on 1) integrated, multispecies, diversified systems, 2) sustainable foraging strategies and efficient utilisation of natural resources, 3) home grown protein feed especially for monogastric animals, 4) resilience as the core of health development rather than just freedom of diseases, 5) breeding including multipurpose breeds, and 6) enhanced mother-infant contact.
