We develop Organic Farming systems and focus on animal husbandry: mainly cattle and pigs. The system development comprise agronomy, animal husbandry, process and product qualities as well as consumer expectations and economy.
The developed solutions shall overcome the gap between
We develop technologies, to improve the efficiency of organic farming systems, and not only increasing farm turnover and production. Therefore we not stick on the standards and exceptions in organic production, but we looking for the goals and principles of organic farming. With our research we will support the organic farming to improve the skills of sustainable production and to fulfill the expectations of the consumer and the society.
The research is carried out in interdisciplinary teams and system oriented. Experiments are used for production improvements. Goals are improved optimizations and innovations of the on-farm food production. The research is carried out on an experimental station in Trenthorst and on practical farms throughout Germany and even abroad.
