The objectives of the EU-funded project SOLID were to evaluate competitiveness and environmental sustainability of organic and low-input systems, to investigate ways to increase their profitability, and to disseminate knowledge to key stakeholder groups.
On www.farmadvice.solidairy.eu you can read about the outcome of the European project ‘SOLID’ and learn about how to improve sustainable organic and low-input dairying.
The website covers three areas which the project believes are particularly important for organic and low-input farming:
- Feeding of ruminants with forage-based diets and home-grown feeds
- Animal management for health and welfare
- And wider issues of the environment and economics.
