Quality & Safety
Youtube video about a cooperation project between Spain and Portugal that pretends to create better varieties which are better adapted to the southwest Iberian soil and climatic conditions. Medicinal plants will be introduced into animal feed to try to avoid the treatments presently applied in order to reduce the presence of chemical residues in the meat and improve quality and wellbeing. In the line of work on techniques for establishing grasslands various treatments with different forage species (oats, triticale, ryegrass and lupine) have been introduced alongside the traditional sowing (mixed legume meadow species), with the aim of increasing the winter production that year and seeing which one has a better performance and yield.
