According to FAO report 2017, currently systems are likely capable of producing enough food for a population projected to reach more than 9 billion by mid-century, but to do so, in an inclusive and sustainable manner, major transformations will be required. The climate change affects livestock production in multiple ways, both directly and indirectly. The most important impacts are experienced in animal productivity, yields of forages and feed crops, animal health and biodiversity. Food losses and waste also hold back the transition to environmentally sustainable food systems. Approximately  ⅓ of all food produced in our planet end up as loss and waste according to the ONU Report 2018, representing around $1 trillion in losses!

As we can see there is a huge problem out there. We can not continue to produce food in the same way we have done so far. This is a fact, and changes are urgently needed. The losses during production, transport and storage have to be urgently minimized. At Orkel, we worry about this, and are constantly developing solutions to increase animal welfare and health, minimize losses and enhance efficiency.

With fresh forage the cattle tend to not leave leftovers


Animals that are fed with Orkel bales tend to need less forage, due to the better conservation and therefore higher nutritional and energy values. This reflects also in less methane emissions and therefore a better environment. Improvements in animal and human health and environmental friendly. European farms are very well run, they make the most out of a small area because land is valuable. You can store these bales in stacks pretty much anywhere and the weather wouldn't bother them a bit. Silo and bulk storage take up room that could be used for crops. Most likely these bales will be fed over winter and be gone by spring.


Ripple effects by feeding high quality forage

  • The cattle will need less forage due to the high nutritional content which leads you to feed more cattle and save costs
  • When the cattle eat high quality forage, and therefore needs less forage - the methane emissions goes down, which is good for the environment
  • Better animal health leads to better milk quality and therefore better human health
  • Less spoilage  - the cattle will eat fresh forage and tend to not leave leftovers

Better animal health leads to better milk quality


A good example from some customers is South America. In a way to enhance production efficiently, the TMR is distributed for the different needs of the animals. Feeding the animals different forage quality based on their needs cause them to produce more with less and avoiding spillage. It is also important to remember that it takes a lot of efforts to bring up the milk quality, therefore it is crucial to keep feeding the animals in a constant and balanced manner so that big production variations are avoided.

Organize your forage or other several materials in a well-organized and competent way. Achieve savings in stocking and transport costs: High density bales with Orkel Compactors, is the efficient solution for the agriculture and industry.
