Best practice guide for legume inclusion in animal feed

This report provides best practice guidelines in the form of fully formulated, tested, and optimised diets for target species - for legume inclusion in compound feeds used for animal husbandry.


The results of the report show that home-grown legumes are a sustainable and cost-effective alternative to replace high-cost protein sources, with great potential for use in aquaculture, pigs and poultry.


The report builds on desk research, Case Studies , extensive research in controlled feed formulation and controlled feeding experiments, as well as stakeholder consultations. This report is also interlinked with the Deliverable D4.3 Facilitating the EU market demand for legume-grain and -fodder as feeds.
