Regionalisation of feedingstuff


The main objective of this project is to develop a concept on how the origin of feeds and feedstuffs can be integrated in the declaration of locally produced animal products. The recommendations derived from the results shall contribute to an increasing share of regional feeds in these kinds of products. In the framework of the project the determination of a (growing) minimum regional feedstuff share in the guidelines of the so-called ‘Regionalfenster’ [literal interpretation: regional window] is tested (guideline approach). Furthermore, it is considered if a (facultative) declaration of the share of regional feeds can increase the demand of the analyzed labelled products (declaration approach).
