Raising fodder crops destined to serve as fodder for livestock is an essential part of high-quality agriculture.
Nearly 65% of herbivores’ diet comes from the pasture, so this resource needs to be a source of high-performance production that’s respectful of the environment and supports livestock farmers’ independence.
Fodder plants should be considered as ‘real’’ crops. Remember, grass is a crop too!
Its economic contribution will be bolstered by good pasture management. After precise determination of your farm’s needs, a few common-sense rules are in order:
- Always use legumes in every pasture you sow,
- Increase the period of use by combining complementary species,
- Benefit from genetic progress by using certified seeds,
- Put all the grass you produce to use at the most appropriate stage.
