The production and transportation of raw materials, and the consumption of animal feed, are sources of our greenhouse gas emissions. Measuring these emissions in a comparable and consistent fashion remains a challenge for the whole sector. ForFarmers is actively involved in developing a suitable method for determining the environmental impact.
ForFarmers supplies feed concepts that help farmers reduce their emissions at farm level. We also advise livestock farmers on how to increase production efficiency and thereby reduce greenhouse gas emissions. An example of this is our feed concept, NOVA for sows.
NOVA was developed to ensure exceptionally good development of young sows and top technical results throughout the life of the animals. Better sow productivity leads to more efficient production, is more profitable for the farmer and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, NOVA is focused on better feed conversion.
