Summary
The joint project lnnoRind (here: funding phase 1) aims to establish an innovation network for cattle farming that uses the expertise of the project participants to develop innovative approaches for sustainable cattle farming in Germany. These approaches should, on the one hand, improve animal welfare and, on the other hand, reduce negative environmental impacts, but at the same time also include the labour situation as well as the profitability of farms and the wishes of consumers in the concepts to be developed. The main topics of the planned innovation network are, among others - cow-based calf rearing, - alternative fattening and marketing methods to address the sales problem of male dairy calves, and - the transit period and the balancing of environmental effects in the dairy barn.
