Feeding plans

The Feed Management Plan  is intended to assist the producer with documentation of those practices that affect animal welfare. Providing animals with a balanced and species appropriate diet of nutrients is essential for their overall health and well-being. This includes providing them with adequate amounts of protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, and minerals. 

Appropriate management of farming residues

Appropriate management of farming residues involves making use of the crops and animal products left over after harvest or slaughter. Strategies for managing these residues may include composting, burning, mulching or using them as animal feed. Proper management of these residues is important to ensure that the land is properly managed, soil fertility is maintained, and the environment is protected from pollution. e.g., seeding on residues.

Rewetting wetlands/peatlands, paludiculture

Paludiculture is the productive land use of wet and rewetted peatlands that preserves the peat soil and thereby minimizes CO2 emissions and subsidence. Rewetting wetlands/peatlands, also known as paludiculture, is the practice of restoring and managing wetlands and peatlands in order to provide economic and ecological benefits. This involves rewetting peatlands that have been drained for agriculture, forestry, or other uses.

Management and cutting plan of landscape elements

This is a plan to maintain and manage the various components of a farm's landscape. It involves determining which parts of the farm should be cut or trimmed, as well as what should be kept as it is. It also includes deciding when and how to prune, mow, and fertilize the landscape components in order to keep them healthy and looking their best. It refers to the management of hedges, vegetation strips and other landscape elements at a territory scale.

Planting landscape elements

Planting landscape elements in farming refers to the practice of strategically planting vegetation and trees on or around agricultural land to provide a variety of benefits. These elements can include trees and shrubs that can help to provide windbreaks, shade, and provide natural habitat for wildlife. Additionally, planting landscape elements can help reduce soil erosion, help protect soil and water resources, and provide a more efficient use of land.

Animal health prevention and control plans

Animal health prevention and control plans are strategies created to protect the health of animals and prevent the spread of diseases. These plans can include vaccinations, quarantines, inspections, and biosecurity protocols to prevent infectious agents from entering animal populations. They can also include routine health checks, parasite control, nutrition plans, and other strategies to ensure optimal health for the animals.

Selective breeding

Selective breeding can help increase robustness, fertility, longevity and adaptability in animals. This can be done by selecting animals that are genetically predisposed to having good health and traits that are desirable for the particular species.
