Project description

The feeding of Schleswig-Holstein dairy cows is constantly calculated and optimized by specialized advisors and experts of feed suppliers.

A question that arises when implementing diets with reduced protein content but not yet answered and analyzed is: How much protein requires the dairy cow really or how can we make the feeding more N-efficient?

The OG Milk - feed & feeding aims with the innovation project to contribute to the efficient use of protein feed for dairy cows. The reduction of protein content in the total ration leads to decreased nitrogen excretion via the liquid manure and therefore to a reduction of nitrate loads from animal excrement into the environment.  of this project should also increasingly come from native production to guarantee a GMO-free feeding for the consumers.
