The reduction of copper levels for pigs to 25 mg/kg for all age groups is off the table in the European Union. The proposal, suggested in an FEEDAP Panel Opinion in 2016, will be replaced with different levels.

They proposed a plan taking into account environment, animal performance and health. Pig Progress talked to FEFAC Animal Nutrition Committee expert Erik Dam Jensen about its contents.
