We know we can’t change the industry alone, so we’re working together with many people, experts, and our own farmers to ensure our solutions and projects have the highest reach and impact.
We contribute with our practical experience and have an open dialogue with our cooperative owners and suppliers of slaughter animals to test new technologies and solutions to ensure that they can be implemented successfully at farm level. Because together we can achieve almost everything and anything.
Below you can read more about the different projects and initiatives, we’re currently involved in or already have enrolled.
Green Fertilizer Denmark
Together with other large Danish cooperatives in the agricultural sector, we have founded the company Green Fertilizer Denmark, which will carry out a feasibility study to clarify whether there is a basis for establishing a Danish production of green fertiliser.
In Denmark and Sweden, we participate in research projects to limit methane emissions from manure storage and spreading.
Carbon sequestration in the field
We participate in a Danish research project which aims to increase carbon storage and reduce nitrate leaching and nitrous oxide emissions by establishing multi-year pasture areas from annual crop rotations.
We have launched a pilot project to investigate the use of nitrification inhibitors in feed grain cultivation. Adding nitrification inhibitors to manure prevents ammonium from being converted in the soil to nitrate and nitrous oxide, which is a greenhouse gas.
We are engaged in the development of manure technology and green fertiliser while also focusing on optimising the application of mineral fertilisers and emission-reducing additives.
Reducing methane emissions from cattle
We are involved in Danish and Swedish research and development projects focusing on cross breeds, methane-neutralising feed additives and increasing feed efficiency to reduce the methane produced in the rumen of cattle.
Extracting grass protein
We are part of the Dansk Protein Innovation partnership and participate in the Bio Value research project seeking to find a profitable method of extracting grass protein. Some of our cooperative owners have tested grass protein as an alternative to soy in feed.
