Stock-free agriculture

Stock-free agriculture consists of farming methods that do not use livestock or animal products.[1] Stock-free growers do not keep domesticated animals and do not use animal products such as farmed animal manures or animal parts (bone meal, blood meal, fish meal).[2] Emphasis is placed on using green manures instead.

Stock-free farming may use organic or non-organic farming techniques. However, most detailed discussions of stock-free agriculture currently focus on stock-free organic variants.[3]
