Organic livestock farming as a contribution to climate protection - with a focus on animal diseases and epidemics (ÖTiKliS)


Optimising animal health by developing adapted husbandry systems in harmony with the lowest possible GHG emissions



  • Evaluation of organic and conventional pig and poultry farms with regard to animal health, structural conditions and biosecurity measures, as well as carrying out supplementary emission measurements
  • Determining the carbon footprint of different types of housing and the impact of construction measures on emissions
  • Preparation of recommendations and decision trees regarding measures and provision of information in an online tool for agriculture
