In dairy farms, new rearing practices of calves with nurse cows have been developed by farmers. As a part of the GrazyDaiSy project, three different parasite indicators were measured individually in 438 calves belonging to 38 groups at housing in western France. The results suggest that rearing suckling dairy calves with nurse cows decreases the level of gastrointestinal nematode infection in calves at the end of the 1st grazing season.
One of the aims of the CORE Organic project GrazyDaiSy is to practice and study social learning and is therefore collaborating with other projects working with cow-calf contact systems. The Danish GrazyDaiSy partners analyse the processes of ‘Stable Schools’, including how they contribute to identify solutions to challenges in cow-calf systems.
In order to address emerging societal challenges, CORE Organic has joined forces with SUSFOOD2 in the transnational Call ‘Towards sustainable and organic food systems’ launched in 2019. The network consists of 21 funding bodies from 18 countries/regions, committing around 9.5M EUR for transnational research.

Organic Farm Knowledge provides many tools and knowledge exchange for farmers, farm advisers and scientists. The platform covers a wide range of topics and is constantly expanding its thematic repertoire through new partnerships. Also the CORE Organic Cofund projects will publish their practice-oriented results on the platform.
A study of bird health and welfare in two slower-growing hybrids was performed in eight organic broiler chicken farms in Sweden in 2018. The bird health was in general good, but there are still needs for improvements.
In the last two years, non-invasive and smart monitoring solutions approach for producing premium quality dried foods were designed. Cloud-based solutions as well as soft sensors and the determination of critical control points were investigated in the context of the SusOrgPlus project.
A study has been realised on the effect of animal diversity on performances of organic commercial farms, in the framework of the Mix-Enable project.
Seasonal and sustainable winter vegetable production in Central European climates appears contradictory and represents formidable challenges regarding increased resource efficiency and reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
