Livestock

Titelbild Nutztiere

Over two-thirds of the useful agricultural area in Switzerland consists of grassland, which is why ruminant husbandry is an important pillar of Swiss agriculture. Agroscope provides farmers with the foundations of good forage production and animal nutrition, and is also responsible for official inspection of animal feed. Agroscope focuses on farm animals such as ruminants, pigs and horses, as well as bees.
