Innovative solution for animal feed | Peter van Paridon | TEDxVenlo

laatste update: 06-2023

The way we feed our animals has a great impact on the environment. You can reduce that impact considerably by sourcing our food locally, for example not from South America but simply from The Netherlands. “We have to produce our animal feed locally. Difficult? No, we have
plenty of options.”

If we listen to Peter and go with his solution it will not only be better for the environment. Or the rainforest. But also for the farmers. “Now livestock must be reduced due to environmental impact. Our solution reduces the nitrogen and phosphate problem in manure and leads to less need for reduction of livestock.” But what is that solution? It is right there. Under our noses. It has far more potential benefits for animals AND people alike than ever thought
of before; biorefining of Grass. With an innovative process, grass (or any other green vegetable
residues) can be used for efficient feeding of livestock, as organic fertilizer and even as a better source of protein for humans, vegetarian or not.
In this way, we can continue to feed the world with milk, eggs and meat, or with plant-based protein without running out of land and without increasing the damage to the environment Peter van Paridon (60) is a global innovator and business development executive with a Ph.D in Biochemistry. He has broad experience in several management positions in R&D, sales and business management in Biotechnology, Starch processing, Feed enzymes, Meat; Dairy Ingredients, Engineering Plastics, Bio-Energy and Bio-based Materials. Experience includes running large global teams, product development
and growing large global businesses. Extensive experience with Innovation programs and (corporate) start-ups. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at x

20 gedachten over “Innovative solution for animal feed | Peter van Paridon | TEDxVenlo”

  1. I am a dairy cow nutritionist, grass is good as part of a total diet but it is far from the most efficient way to produce milk and meat. If you fed a dairy cow only grass she would make about 20-25 lbs of milk that same cow feeding her a balanced diet with soybeans and corn meal can produce 90-100 lbs or more. Every cow has an amount of energy required to be raised and for maintenance, so if we want to use fewer resources we want fewer more productive cows.

    His innovation is pretty nice, but the idea we would be better off if cows ate only grass is non sense!

  2. Why are u sitting, stand up bum

    Nooo sit back down lazy

  3. if you can extract nutrients to feed chickens and pigs, feed it to humans bro! don’t go in circles

  4. The juice is the easily absorbed nutrients, though, so the cows really can't get the same amount of protein.

  5. Maybe the Netherlands could export grass/hay to places like the Ukraine and Poland by railroad. It is far cheaper to move freight by rail than it is by truck, at least in America it is.

  6. Bring that bio refining technology in Kenya and you will actually make millions of dollars.The country is actually facing animal feeds crisis and farmers can't produce enough to feed on livestock and the bulging population,hence making huge loses when it comes to expensive production.

  7. We should put a hold on population explosion. Too many humans = too much strain on resources. But it is what drives up consumption that drives up business growth so you turn a blind eye on the root cause of all problems.

  8. Nederlands has 3.5 million cows india has 310 million cows looks like something else is going on.

  9. Simple means you cut the grass and make silage… one fed feed the cows, goats, chickens everything. Stop making is complicated please. Enough is enough
