In developing feed concepts, we pay particular attention to the effects on animal welfare. In the event of a legal requirement for livestock farmers, such as beak trimming for laying hens or a ban on castration of pigs, we are able to help reduce the impact on our customers. For example, the feed composition can make a positive difference here. Innovation is an important component of this.
ForFarmers has its own Nutrition Innovation Centre. Feed experts and innovation managers are working here to improve feed efficiency, among many other things. Social issues in the field of animal health and welfare, such as the reduction of drug use on farms, are also important research topics. Each innovation project is assessed on its impact on animal health and welfare, in addition to the other sustainability effects that ForFarmers focuses on.
