Farmer cooperative Fertil Eveil is leading an innovative project focused on producing and sharing compost from plant-based litter within a Practice Hub environment. With multiple composting platforms established in France, the cooperative aims to improve nutrient management and assess the impact of the composting process on soil and animal welfare. Challenges around bedding materials choice and welfare considerations are being addressed through a unique approach involving wood shavings fines and dolomite. The project's multi-criteria analysis framework and upcoming poultry welfare assessments highlight a service designed by and for farmers, poised for potential commercialization across cooperative farmers and beyond.

  1. Poultry systems, producing and selling compost Practice hub 13 Thursday, March 7th This project has received funding from the European Union s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under grant agreement No 101000395.

  2. Introduction PHUB-13 : Farmer cooperative producing and sharing compost from plant-based litter : Practice Hub involves the cooperative Fertil Eveil that created a composting plant back in 2007 In 2011, they started a litter production plant to standardise and integrate the composting process In 2018, they opened a 2nd composting platform and in 2022, a 3th Manure intakes (50km) Compost exportation (150 km) Composting plant Located in France (West-North)

  3. Innovation OECD Area of Innovation : Products System type : Niche, Intensive Innovation interests : Assess the impact of the litter (welfare, etc.) Assess the impact of the composting process on soil Better nutrient management

  4. Challenges Desiredproperties : Issues around the choice of the bedding material Suppleness and thermal insulation Environment :Avoid NH3 emissions or Improve N conservation Welfare : Ensure physical comfort, and welfare of The water absorbent capacity the animals A safe material (health aspect) Economic : The quality of the bedding is related to the heating consumption Sanitary : Avoid the introduction of pathogen agent Available at an affordable cost

  5. Uniqueness In the living lab framework : Dolomite is sometimes used for ruminant livestock with excellent review ! Farmers want to develop and test a new bedding material made from wood shavings fines and dolomite, a natural mineral rich in magnesium and calcium. They believe that these innovations could address several issues related to poultry bedding materials The developed approach required an multi- criteria analysis

  6. The now and the future The multicriteriaanalysis protocolisready A training day for Farmers P-Hub willbe soon held for the poultrywelfare assessment The first test willbe cariedout at the spring One of P-HUB's farmers slogan is "a service designed by farmers, for farmers !" which reflects the philosophy of the work proposed within this Living Lab. Subject to successful tests, the new litter could be commercialized to the whole cooperative farmers and beyond
