New booklet: Cattle breeding in organic agriculture: food autonomy

Supplementing the collection of booklets published on protein crops, pork and poultry in organic farming (OF), this new publication addresses a complex current subject: food autonomy in organic cattle farming.

This booklet aims to provide farmers with the levers that can be mobilised to improve the level of autonomy of cattle farms in OF. It is divided into four sections. The first establishes the legal context in which the Walloon organic cattle farming takes place and defines food autonomy. The second presents two major ways to improve the level of food autonomy of a cattle farm. The third section proposes how to draw up a food profile of the farm. Finally, the fourth section provides a technical portrait of the autonomy of five farms.
