The objective of this sub-programme is to obtain a better and more complete understanding of the interaction between pasture growth, decay and harvesting by the animal and relate this to overall productivity of pasture.
Potential Impact Indicators:
- Maximize ruminant production from grazed pasture.
- Development of decision support tools to benchmark grass production and utilization from grazed pastures.
- Acquire a greater understanding of the effects of grazing management on grass production and utilization.
