Alternatives to soya bean for fattening broilers

By 2022 it will become compulsory under EU Regulations (EC) no 889/2008 to provide all organic livestock with feed derived from 100% organic origins. Pig and poultryfarming currently relies heavily on imported soya so finding regional alternatives to soya is important. Camelina cake, rapeseed expeller and sunflower expeller can be locally produced so their potential as soya cake replacers were evaluated for the broiler finishing phase. This phase is less nutritionally demanding offering a good time to test alternative feedstuffs.
