OK-Net EcoFeed joins the EIP-AGRI animal welfare communication campaign

In July 2020, OK-Net EcoFeed joined the agricultural European Innovation Partnership (EIP-AGRI) communication campaign on animal health and welfare. It highlighted outcomes of EIP-AGRI related activities, inspirational ideas and research needs.

The campaign kicked off with a social media campaign on animal welfare #EIPagriAnimal and it was followed by a dedicated newsletter. The OK-Net EcoFeed consortium contributed to the EIP-AGRI newsletter and campaign by publishing the handbook “A tool improving health and welfare of pigs”. The handbook is targeted to organic pig farmers and advisors and it is currently available on the Organic Farm Knowledge (OFK) platform in 8 languages including English, German, Czech, French, Italian, Dutch, Albanian and Serbian. Published on Tuesday 14 July, the newsletter reached more than 7,000 people.

Since the start of the project in 2018, OK-Net EcoFeed has been helping organic pig and poultry farmers to achieve the goal of 100% use of organic and regional feed. Since then, the dissemination towards all actors in the EIP-AGRI network has been an integral part of the OK-Net EcoFeed activities.

The OK-Net EcoFeed project helps organic pig and poultry farmers to achieve the goal of 100% use of organic and regional feed. The three-year project will extend the OK-Net knowledge platform. IFOAM Organics Europe coordinates the project consisting of 11 partners and 8 third linked parties from 12 countries.
