  • Forage usage optimization
  • Estimation of the farm's margin

Forage production and organic pasture management

Cow feeding in organic dairy productions must include a great part of forage consumed in pastures. Our unique expertise in organic forage production and pasture management allows you to make the most of this feeding method for your cows.
