Native Protein Crops ✔
Development of a concept for the economic feeding use of grain legumes for cattle, pigs and chickens in Schleswig-Holstein in organic and conventional farming
The cultivation of grain legumes should be made successful in conventional and organic farming, in order to promote the use of domestic grain legumes and significantly expand the area under cultivation in Schleswig-Holstein.
The utilization of native protein crops, mainly in-house, is to be tested and improved. Ton broad bean will be the focus of this project.
The development of the technological process for heat treatment of broad beans to increase the feed value on the farm (use of stationary operating or mobile solutions by the contractor) will be tested in feeding trials with different animal species. The shelling of broad beans to increase the energy content is another aspect which is to be tested in piglet feeding.
