Objectives

Aim

The aim of this project is to assess the environmental, ecological and socio-economic impact of existing and potential measures that prevent cattle access to watercourses.

Objectives

  • Analysis of existing datasets, and new field and experimentation datasets (temporal and spatial) to determine the impact of cattle access to (and exclusion from) watercourses on freshwater ecosystems.
  • Evaluate the cost-effectiveness of cattle exclusion measures and assess farmer attitudes to the environment, their perception of estimated costs and their likelihood of adopting measures to prevent cattle access.
