In Poland they’re curious to know more about new solutions and alternatives for GMO free soy for forage. GMO free soy could cost a dairy farmer a lot more, so in Poland a team is looking for alternatives. Who has experience within our ED-network?

Hello,
we are also working on this subject here in France. One dairy firm wants to develop GMO free milk.
For us, there is to way to reach this goal :

  • replace soya meal by rapeseed meal (from europe)
  • decrease the concentrate amount in a ration with good quality forage (grass silage, pea silage…).
