Pasture mixtures of grasses and legumes for the long-term sustainability of beef production
The objective of this project is to develop simple and complex forage mixtures for long term and low cost beef grazing management systems. This research will help agronomists and beef producers choose species mixtures suitable for the environment and management systems in which they will be grown.
The project focuses on long term productivity for single and multi-species mixtures as part of a larger project funded through the BCRC science cluster with the same scientific team. The project will offer a unique opportunity to asses grazing management in different environments with one site northern Ontario (New Liskeard) where cow-calf production is important.
Expected Completion: 2016
