Natural Livestock Farming 5-layered strategy to reduce the use of antibiotics in dairy farming

Natural Livestock Farming (NLF) is the organization continuously engaged in knowledge exchange programs for reduced use of antibiotics and other chemicals in dairy farming. Dutch Farm Experience is one of the organizations spearheading the international NLF network, which strategically combines knowledge from the Netherlands, India, Ethiopia and Uganda.

During the 2014-2015 exchange programs the NLF-5-layered strategy was developed, with 5 major elements: (1) improved cattle and farm management; (2) strategic use of local breeds; (3) use of herbs and other natural products; (4) quality control of milk and other products; and (5) improved income for farmers form residue-free products. This is now being used for pilot studies and training programs for the reduction of the use of antibiotics and other chemicals in dairy farming.
