Sustainable protein from your own land

Protein, drought, biodiversity and nutrient efficiency are topical issues for dairy farmers worldwide. Barenbrug presents various solutions for a variety of climate conditions, ranging from extremely dry to extremely cold. These solutions and information on these four topics will be shared at our stand.

  • Protein - Protein is a high-value nutrient in all beef cattle diets. Forage grass and legumes are a natural source of protein which save costs and are environmentally friendly.
  • Drought tolerence - The drought, caused by global warming, damages lots of crops. Last summer many pastures and meadows stopped growing and turned from green into yellow and brown. This creates an increasing demand for forage crops that are resistant to drought.

  • Biodiversity - In recent years there has been increasing concern that modern agricultural production practices are contributing to the decline of biodiversity. With a carefully formulated forage mixture you stimulate not only the environment but also the quality of your cattle and milk.
  • Nutrient efficiency - It’s a major concern to increase nutrient efficiency to minimize the losses of fertilization. Solutions can be found in grasses with deeper reaching roots and forage legumes that ensure nitrogen fixation from the air.


Want to learn more about these different topics? Ask us at our EuroTier booth (20E47).


EuroTier is the world’s leading trade fair for animal production. It gives an overview of the innovations in the area of technology, services and genetics related to modern lifestock farming.

We are looking forward to showing the EuroTier visitors how our products contribute to the production of protein from your own land

Meet Barenbrug

We specialize in plant breeding, seed production and the international marketing of seeds for turf, forage grass and legumes. Central in our company is our passion for grass, we share this with our customers and growers. Four generations of the Barenbrug family have also shared this through to the present day.

Grass has a close bond with producing protein from your own land. All the benefits also lay close to what Barenbrug believes in. Sustainability, helping produce for example more milk from cows because of better grass. Quality, improving our grass to improve the planet and nature. And lastly partnership, working together with farmers, greenkeepers and grassprofessionals to create a better, greener world.
