This action which is being led by AREC will implement extensive feeding trials to assess the climate mitigating impact and animal performance of the animal feed products generated by the green biorefinery and biochar prototypes.
The overall objectives of this action are:
(1) Demonstrate and assess the feed value of silage press cake for ruminants (cattle and sheep)
(2) Demonstrate and assess the feed value of AA-concentrates from grass silage for monogasts (chickens)
(3) Demonstrate and assess the reduction in GHG emissions that can be achieved by using biochar as a feed additive for both ruminants (cattle) and monogasts (chickens).
(4) to present the feeding trial results to relevant actors from which animal feeding strategies can be generated.
