New tools and practices for organic dairy sector from the NEFERTITI project

Looking for inspiration for improving organic dairy farming? Check out the new videos from the NEFERTITI project that showcase tools and practices used in Brittany, France. Partners of the Horizon 2020 project NEFERTITI had a chance to visit Trévarez experimental organic farm last November. The farmers use mobile milking robots that allows them to have 100% grazing for up to 200 days a year. Another advantage is that there is no additional feed or concentrate used to attract cows for milking. Learn more about the innovation by watching the farm demo video.

Another organic farmer in Brittany, Alain Normant, has been experimenting with crossbreeding and once- a- day milking at his farm. The result is a low-cost production system that ensures a higher margin per litre of milk. Importantly, it also brings a better work-life balance for the farmer as the milking is done only once a day. More details in the video from the NEFERTITI cross-visit.

The NEFERTITI project is an EU-wide connected network of demonstration and pilot farms to enhance knowledge exchange and innovation uptake. It established 10 interactive thematic networks, connected 45 regional clusters of demo-farmers and related actors in 17 countries. IFOAM Organics Europe is a partner in the project.
