Grazing Systems

The ’Grazing Systems’ Research Group develops forage production and grazing techniques geared specifically to animal species, farm type and the multifunctional aims of grazing (sustainable production of biomass for animal feed, the preservation of plant and animal biodiversity, the landscape, nutrient cycles, etc.). Particular attention is paid to mountain grazing and to the adaptation of forage production to climate change.
