Management agreements on grassland on dairy farms


, : Management agreements on grassland on dairy farms. Publikatie Praktijkonderzoek Rundvee, Schapen en Paarden ( 111): 24 pp.

Protection of environmentally sensitive areas of grassland on dairy farms is possible via management agreements with farmers. Severe agreements involving massive restrictions on agricultural activities in spring and delay of the first cut until 15 June were studied in terms of economics and phosphorus cycling. Dairy cow grazing systems needed to be retained, so there was a limit to the amount of land that could be removed from the standard grazing cycle.
