Italian farmers join forces in new organics value chain.
Projects & Practice
A family farm that breeds the protected Marchigiana cows received Measure 14 - Animal welfare support to improve the way their livestock are maintained.
Animal welfare support enabled a farmer to improve the living conditions of his buffalo herd and at the same time improve the quality and quantity of milk produced.
The project saw an unused calves’ shed converted into a farm shop selling organic products.
In response to the changing global markets, a dairy used Rural Development Programme (RDP) support to reorient its production and maintain its export potential.
A livestock farmer received training and undertook a consultation to find out how to improve animal welfare on his farm.
A dairy company used RDP support to build a new wing on its factory in order to increase its production capacity. This investment strengthened the local supply chains and helps prevent the abandonment of the farming activity in the area.
