Nutrient supply and grazing behaviour of cattle on semi-natural pastures

Full title: Cattle on heterogeneous semi-natural pastures - nutrient supply and the effect of behaviour on nutrient redistribution between vegetation types within the grazing area

 

Project manager: Eva Spörndly
PhD student (licentiate): Maja Pelve 
 

Aims with the project:

1. To obtain a better knowledge about the nutritive value and digestibility of the pasture available for the animals on heterogeneous semi-natural pastures in Sweden.


2. To study animal behaviour on pasture and how it affects nitrogen transport between different types of vegetation within a heterogeneous semi-natural pasture.


3. To measure the methane emissions from animals fed plant material from mesic and wet semi-natural pasture areas.
