Impact

The study will improve knowledge in relation to the impact of cattle to streams on environmental , ecological and socio-economic parameters and hence will be of relevance to a wide range of stakeholders including researchers, policymakers and landowners.

This study will provide information to policy-makers regarding the appropriate design and management of measures that prevent cattle access to watercourses, improve water quality and in-turn enhance aquatic ecosystems.

Information from this study will play an important role in future revisions to the Rural Development Programme and in helping Ireland achieve targets under the Water Framework Directive. The project will also help address the objectives of Food Harvest 2020 for sustainable intensification.
