OK-Net EcoFeed – Organic Knowledge Network on Monogastric Animal Feed

The project OK-Net EcoFeed aims at helping organic pig and poultry farmers in achieving the goal of 100% use of organic and regional feed.

OK-Net EcoFeed has 4 objectives:

  • The project will synthesize the scientific and practical knowledge available about organic and regional feed production for monogastrics;
  • It will create a European network of innovation groups to facilitate exchange and co-creation of knowledge among farmers, business actors, researchers and advisors;
  • It will collect end-user material and develop new tools adapted to the needs of farmers and business actors.
  • Finally, the project will extend the Organic Farm Knowledge platform to include the topic of monogastric animal feed.

OK-Net EcoFeed is a 3-year project and is coordinated by IFOAM Organics Europe. The consortium consists of 19 partners from 11 countries. It is funded by Horizon 2020.

The project builds on the experiences of OK-Net Arable, which was a thematic network addressing organic arable cropping. OK-Net EcoFeed is a logic continuation of OK-Net Arable, making the bridge between feed cultivation over feed processing to animal production.
